The Purple Sky, Part IV

June 16, 2016 § Leave a comment

The purple sky brought a smile to Hien’s face. Only her smile could match this majestic sight, he thought to himself.

Although I dislike war,
I want to do my best to protect the serenity of this place
and that beautiful smile as well.

The civil war devastated the country and turned the once peaceful land into rubble. Hien’s left leg was injured in the fighting, but he survived the war. After he was discharged from the military, he took a trip back to the village of the lavender. The first thing he did when he got there was to visit the lavender field. What he saw was heart-wrenching. A bomb had wiped out the lavender field rendering it cratered land. In the middle of the empty land stood a memorial, inscribed with the following words:

In memory of a young lady who died on this field.
