The man in the desert
For as long as I can remember, there was a man who lived out in the desert. Some say he is god. Others say he is a demon. There are tales of him saving villages, and myths of his ability to find water. He is a legend that, even now, is told among the children.
Aris- my town, it is a settlement of a few hundred, one of the largest in the world. But even this won’t stop the struggle we go through to survive. Water has become scarce and we have to venture out into the desert to fill our wells now. Crops are drying up, the cattle are starving, while the people thirst for any drop of water.
It was during this time that the legend started to appear again. Desperate mothers telling their children the legend of the man in the desert, teaching them how he will come and save them. He will bring water to them and unknown riches from the desert’s heart.
