was there or how I had arrived there, so I started walking…

I walked for a long time, searching for an unknown destination.

Suddenly, I felt a tremble in my belly. I stopped to listen. I could hear something behind me, following me. As the sound approached me closer and closer, fear struck my body. I ran without looking back.

Part 2

I woke up in the desert. I cursed being there again.

I walked for a long time…
