Burning with the heat of the reflected sun, the dunes stretch on as far as the travelers can see. Exhaustion is creeping over them, but they know that if they give in, they’ll die alone in the blazing wasteland, their bodies buried under the shifting dunes. So with sweat upon their brows, they continue to walk, praying for some sign of life or civilization before it’s too late.

This is my entry for Three Line Tales, Week Fourteen, which is somehow missed the first thirteen weeks of. Thanks to Sonya of Only 100 Words for running this challenge and to Fabio Rose for the prompt photo.

  1. Oh gosh! I could feel their sweat and the heat! Great story!
