Until I See Your Face Again: (The Hurt Locker is the inspiration here)
Muse A and Muse B are planning to get married, but Muse B is in the Army and has one more tour of duty in Afghanistan. They part ways, tearfully, knowing that in one year Muse B will be home again. Muse B is a bomb tech and spends their days and nights defusing bombs and having nightmares about bodies blown to bits when they don’t get the bombs defused in time. Muse A worries about Muse B while staying back home and planning their wedding. Muse A keeps working and trying to do everything normally while cringing every time they hear the gravel in the driveway crunch under tires. Would it be men in uniform coming to tell Muse A the Muse B has died over there? They Skype and write letters all through his tour. Every time Muse B is out of communication, Muse A spends in a panic. Until a year later, Muse B is home, and they reunite.
