~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

War

Watson can not say what haunts him more - the loudness of battle or the silence after.

Famine

They may escape from Jezail bullets, but not from heat and hunger.

Pestilence

He was never able to literally taste sickness in the air, until Watson suffered the enteric fever himself.

Death

Watson chuckles quietly, observing his new roommate being scolded by their landlady and for the first time feels relief that he did not die in Afghanistan.
