Transitioning from a Weekend to a Warzone by [Renata Morgan]


Transitioning from a Weekend to a Warzone

Initially, she never intended to exchange the comforts of her routine lifestyle, for days that were spent watching out for random attacks on her life. She never intended to be anything more than the Weekend Warrior that she had ideally signed up to be. She was a Soldier on reserve and somehow, she still ended up in the War Zone.
