Al QasirRazor-sharp grains of sand surge from hell to heaven in an infinite rage, turning the city of Al Qasr from its beautiful turquoise pools and shimmering skyscrapers to the pit of darkness, as the sun is wiped from existence in the fury of a powerful sandstorm. Within minutes, the road, the sidewalks, the buildings, the trees—everything is coated with a thick layer of yellow and orange sand, and the sky tints to a dark puke-yellow color. Skyscrapers, the mosque, a school, and the open squares disappear in the chaos, temporarily lost like Atlantis, in rolling waves of a bleak mirk.Al Qasir20 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Tied to a post somewhere beyond the buildings, out on the edge of town, an especially-hairy camel growls and bays in annoyance, and a stray dog barks anxiously, his voice nearly covered by the wind. Two men run haphazardly from one building to the building right next door, but no one ventures outside if they don't have to. Wide-eyed tourists stare out the windows, their cameras and phones pressed to the g

They are something else, secrets incarnate, impossible to get to the bottom of, kept jealously by those loyal to them.
I made it my mission.
I took each step slowly, carefully, getting closer and closer, more personal.
Then I began to dig, a spoonful of dirt at a time.
I could feel it. I could feel how close I was - the scent of discovery was fresh in my nostrils.
So fresh I could almost taste it -

Pain throbbed in every fibre of my being and I knew not the difference between land and sky.

"Yup!" Kat kneeled next to him, "you always call me 'Kitty' so why not call you 'Wolfy'?"
All he could do was just stare at her in confusion, "but why Wolfy?"
"Because," Kat pouted, frustrated that she had to explain it to him, "remember when we were playing the other day and you said that you would want to be a wolf because 'wolves are cooler and tougher than dogs'."
