The soldier was armed to the teeth.

He had his heart in his mouth.

He was in hot water.

It was time to face the music.

He put his best foot forward.

He hoped to strike while the iron was hot

even though his heart was in his boots.

You could hear a pin drop,

when suddenly he turned a corner

and found his brother hiding in the long grass.

‘I’ve got your back,’ his brother whispered.
