As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, visit the help center for guidance.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
However, in doing so, be warned that you are also
a.) promising to return, soon;
b.) promising to call as soon as you return. (where as soon as you return means within 1/10th of the time you have been gone, dating from this message).
Promises are legally actionable in many Anglophone jurisdictions.
I will call you as soon as I am back or I will call you as soon as I get back are more correct versions of the sentence.
