Sunday Photo Fiction – Across The Desert

This is part of a new serial I have started with a woman named Cora. It is set in Ancient Greece and she is the daughter of Zeus so is a demigod and has only recently found out. The story is now in the fiction bar at the top, under A Journey To Olympus.

Cora thought back over the time since she left home. Three weeks and now walking across a sun bleached desert with nothing but rocks around her. She contemplated going back, but on looking that way, it just looked the same. Closing her eyes, she tried to think of where she wanted to go, thinking that maybe her Godly ability is to teleport somewhere. Upon opening her eyes, she was not surprised to see that there were still sand dunes for as far as she could see.

Covering her head with a cowl to keep cool, Cora kept her gaze on the floor, thinking about an inn and the hog roast, or ale that she would savour. She stepped around a rock that she almost caught her foot on, and when she glanced back, she stopped … stunned. There were no footprints. Looking down, she stood on the sand, but there was no displacement. Suddenly, her feet sank slightly into the sand and taking steps created foot prints again. She tried to lift herself up again, but to no avail. A smile spread across her face as she thought of what she could do if her steps left no trace behind.
