It had been a horrendous adventure .. adventure? hah … torture it was … left in the desert stumbling through the sand .. . finally I just sat down totally exhausted .. wiped out … oh I knew I knew they’d find me sooner than later yet I was miserable …
the night was falling all around me but at least the moon was there to keep me company … a few feet away I saw a twinkling in the sand … blue twinkling … my curiosity brought me to my feet … I could hardly believe my eyes … bending over I picked up what looked to be a necklace … deep blue sapphires …
it was then I knew she had been here in this very spot .. couldn’t have been a very long time before me or her necklace would have been buried in the sand … but what could I do? … just me, tired to the bone, …. at least I knew she was still alive … soon my companions would find me … together we would follow her and I had no doubt we could find her … the necklace would lead the way ….
