Under the Midnight Skies



Brock’s eyes were strained from looking around the desert. To his disappointment, he saw nothing but the heat waves dancing upward from the dried and cracked grounds, reaching and clutching into the clear blue skies. Not only the scrubland’s waves were dancing; due to the heat, he had seen a couple of mirages many miles away of what seemed like endless scrublands and cactuses. To make it worse, there was no breeze to move the dancing waves, not even to move a single strand of hair that somehow had broken off and fallen from under his black hat and hanging down onto his sweaty face; he had to brush away that one single strand that kept sticking to his skin. His lips felt dry and on fire; he knew they would soon be peeling from lack of moisture and the heat of the sun.
