I needed to get domestic that evening. one other day within the wasteland may end me. And him? would it not end him too? the place did he reside? In a funky burrow someplace? I didn’t recognize. yet I remembered Dad’s phrases. probably he saved up water like a camel. possibly he used to be sporting twelve years provide. I staggered after him, by some means realising that he was once top me within the correct path. at times he might provide a low gurgle, as though to inspire me. The solar beat down mercilessly.
