You are the only one that can save our family, Aella

H-Help us

A sharp gasp shot up in the air as her sapphire orbs popped open to stare widely at the bleak sky above her.

Her chest rose in a misporportioned rhythm, desperately trying to catch some air into her lungs to be able to breathe with ease.

Realizing it was only one of her dreams or nightmares, whichever synonym fitted it best, she picked her body up from the sandy ground.

She ran her fingers through her golden locks which was splayed all over her shoulders to rid them of the beige grains that found their way in her skull from her short nap.

A deep sigh escaped her thin, parched up lips when she noticed she had fallen asleep in the middle of nowhere for the fifth time today, but then again, when last had she slept like a normal person?

She dragged her weary eyes over the vast land of toom which stretched about a dozen miles away from as far as her eyes could see.

It was a domain covered in nothing but delicate hills of fine gravel which were higher than one another.A complete desert with not a single living thing within hundreds of radius.

On a norms, she would marvel at the beauty of the region in which she was the only moving object in sight, feeling as though she was the queen of this abstract base, but she had lost all life in her to sink into such groundless thoughts.
