I let the world around me fade. All that was registered on my mind was,
I ignored the light throbbing of my head, running quickly to the direction of where I heard the scream. My feet pummeled on the hard sand, burning from its warmth. I was itching to wipe the bead of sweat that has formed on my forehead, I bit my lips in frustration
Where in the world is she?
I stopped running and looked around the empty beach, massaging the pain in my abdomen. The sun was scorching down on my skin, I felt cooked, it wasn’t even funny…
I pulled myself down on the sand, feeling its rough texture rub on my sweaty skin.
Lord, where is she? what would happen to a young girl? Please tell me where to go… show me the path…
‘Keep moving forward child… you’re near.’

I licked my dry lips, dusting away the sand that stuck on my arms and legs and peeled my shirt off from my sweaty skin. I ran my hands through my greasy hair. Just 10 more steps wouldn’t hurt, or lets make it 20?
‘Keep moving forward…’
I bit my lips and nodded, walking forwards, looking around. I just kept walking… walking… walking… and walking… But guess what I found?
I was about to turn around and give up until I saw a distant figure, I squinted my eyes to see more clearly
Maybe its just a mirage..
I started walking towards the figure feeling the pace of my heart increase. As I moved closer, I noticed that the person is not alone.
