First Day at Bastogne  

Wayne never felt this cold and numb in his life, even though he lived in the mining ranges of West Virginia, where winter blizzards were usual and never mild. But this, this beat out those cold nights and blistering snow storms. He blew viciously into his bare hands to put some feeling back into them. His helmet felt like it had frozen itself onto his head-because of the sweat he produced from digging the foxhole he was now sitting in- and couldn't feel anything past his groin, except for tingling pain.

That's good, he thought, at least I can feel somethin'.

Wayne sighed and repositioned his M1 against his shoulder as he stared blankly at his comrades dug their own foxholes. He'd help; he just needed a minute to let everything sink in. Krauts broke in, drove some other bullshit regiment back, now his buddies had to go and save the day-again. 

Seems to be a pattern, he thought sardonically, a small smile filtered onto his lips.

"Hey, Sisk. You doin' okay?" Gene walked over to Skinny's foxhole, carrying his shovel on his shoulder. He knelt down beside the other man's foxhole and smiled wryly. "Guess we have to save the day again, eh?"

Skinny flashed Doc a quick, halfhearted smile.

"Yep," he said, shifting a little. He couldn't feel his ass anymore. Fuckin' snow. Fuckin' summer fatigues. Fuckin' Krauts. "How you doin'? Holdin' up okay?"
doc_roedoc_roe on December 15th, 2008 07:57 pm (UTC)
"I'm doin' alright, can't really feel my feet, but other than that, I'm gettin' through." Gene smiled back at Skinny.

[ooc: Haven't seen you in forever :D It feels good to RP again here.]

Tab stood over the men in the hole as he gently kicked the helmet with the red cross on it with his boot. "Ey Roe." He looked down at the men, standing stiff and frozen like they were. "I got a present for you."

"Hey," Joe slid in next to the two guys huddled together. "Was no one gonna invite me to the party?"
skinnysisk on December 16th, 2008 04:30 am (UTC)
Wayne flashed Joe a small smile and slapped his leg in a friendly matter.

"Hey, Toye," he greeted, "Yeah, Christmas party. Love the decorations? How's your hole comin'?"
joe_toye on December 16th, 2008 08:04 pm (UTC)
"In this frozen excuse for ground?" Toye commented in his rough husky voice as he shook his head in response.

Instead of moving his head, Joe used his entire body to turn and look around the hole they sat in, "I really like what you've done with the place...its festive." he cracked a smirk from his own sarcasm. "You got a smoke?"

Walter crouched at the edge of Skinny's hole. "Ya guys see the line? White as Perco's teeth. Couldn't see a Kraut if he walked up a shouted 'Werneschnitzel' or some crazy shit like that."

He proceeded to rub his gloved hands together.
skinnysisk on December 16th, 2008 07:46 pm (UTC)
Wayne looked up at Gordon.

"Hey Smokey," he greeted as his teeth started to chatter. He then glanced at Smokey's hands and scowled. "Where in Sam Hill did you get those?"

He tucked his own bare hands underneath his armpits. Jesus, even his armpits were cold!
smokey_gordon on December 16th, 2008 08:27 pm (UTC)
Walter looked down at his gloved hands. "Oh these?" Walter beamed. "Saw these dead Krauts out in the open. Had Alton watch my back, ran out and grabbed me some. Best idea I've ever had."

Gordon noticed that Skinny's hands looked like some disease was afflicted his hands. "Fuck it Skinny. Put your hands in these for a bit. At least give them a warm up." He slipped his hands out of the gloves and tossed them to Skinny. "Just don steal them else I'll clock you so hard."
doc_roedoc_roe on December 16th, 2008 11:12 pm (UTC)
Gene glanced over at Skinny's hands. "Sisk, can I see your hands for a moment?"

Wayne smiled up at Shifty. He was starting to feel that his face was going to freeze permanently in that expression.

"Shift!" he greeted and punched Powers in the leg playfully , "Grab a piece of ground. Krauts won't be able to see yuh like that."
doc_roedoc_roe on December 17th, 2008 03:25 pm (UTC)
Gene smiled as he saw Shifty walk up to their little group. "Hi, Shift. I see you've finished your foxhole."

Gene nodded, took the vial, and smiled at Shifty. "Everybody's findin' morphine except for me and Ralph. What're we not doin' right?"

"Ey Shifty." Toye looked up and nodded to the approaching solider.

Wayne tossed Shifty a lighter with a a swastika on it.

"Here you go, Shift," he said.
joe_toye on December 19th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC)
Toye looked to Shifty, "No, but if you find one you let me know."
skinnysisk on December 21st, 2008 06:22 am (UTC)
Wayne glanced over at Smokey, Shifty, and Toye's foxholes.

"You guys okay?!" he yelled as a wave of dirt and snow slapped him in the face.

Wayne nodded.

"'Bout alright as one can be-" a tree exploded behind Shifty and sent down a shower of chips-"SHIFT, LOOK OUT!"

Wayne's heart jumped into his throat.

"Shifty! Shifty!" he shouted, instinctively beginning to crawl from his foxhole.
