“I woke up as a hooded traveler, alone, in the scorching desert. I didn’t have a clue as to what I had to do. There was a mountain looming in the backdrop. My patience started wearing out as I tardily moved towards the point of interest, feeling the sand with each step I took. I took the dry desert in and I could feel my throat getting parched. I was not used to this. As alone as ever I walked through what looked like stone-posts, I sand-surfed to old ruins seeking for something, anything! Continue reading Journey: The One you Must Take!
