Omar Rabini travels from the land of his
birth across the
desert of Semonote to seek out the treasure of a
long-forgotten king. Along
the way, he meets up with two warring
factions who both hold the key to unlocking of the greatest mysteries
Father would tell us stories
running the gambit
from the very macabre to the fantastical. I believe Cendrick never
bought into them, lacking the imagination I possessed from a very young
age. I ate up the stories like a sweet nectar. I could not get enough
of them. They invigorated me like nothing else. The worlds he described
were incredible. Even as a full grown man-and I am well past my third
decade of life-father would never let me accompany him on his trips.
Yet he continued to tell stories of distant lands, of things beyond my
current imagination. These stories grew more rare as the years
progressed. But one recent escapade drew my attention like none other
had. He spoke of the Land of the Blasted Sun. A land of swirling sand.
A land with an ancient history and a long perished people. They were a
people so wise they had discovered the secret to immortality.
I know how you must feel. I felt the same giddy
anticipation upon discovering the possibility of such a world and
people. He also spoke of endless riches buried beneath the sands, a
treasure so grand it defies the mind’s comprehension. Oh disastrous
fate! I tell you now some things are better left buried.
