It happens to Army Major Aaron Bricewick in True Surrender…and it nearly gets him killed…
Jared took a long time to answer. “You understand how it is,” he finally said. “I did what I did for the good of the mission.”
“Bullshit,” Aaron said. “You did what was good for you. You made a mistake and instead of owning up to it, you covered your ass. And you nearly got me killed.”
“I didn’t–” Jared stopped.
“Didn’t what?” Aaron said. It took a supreme effort not to speak aloud the thoughts going through his mind.
“It was not supposed to happen that way,” Jared said. “Things went wrong. But I did save you.”
“You put my life in jeopardy, and then claim to save it?” Aaron was incredulous.
“Hey, you’re okay now.”
“Are you shitting me?” Aaron said. “Jared, they beat me. Threw me in a cellar. Broke my legs. Threatened to slit my neck. Does any of that sound ‘okay’ to you?”
Jared looked like wanted to get up and leave. Instead he cleared his throat. “So where do we go from here?”
Aaron was silent for a time. “I don’t know,” he finally said. “I really don’t know.”
