Joe Poison

Chapter 1 - Lost Parents - continued...

There was no question in Joe's mind that he would be embarking on this journey, though it flustered him that he wasn't given directions.
As Joe moved through the kitchen gathering supplies he thought about the trip ahead and which direction to go. After much speculation he decided to go through Temes, the desert. It was just a gut feeling.
Joe set off towards the Temes Desert just past the small town of Naro, where he had lived with his parents before they vanished. As he began travelling Joe wondered if he would ever see Naro again. He thought about the strange way his mom and dad disappeared as the sun beat down on him hotter and hotter with each step.
It seemed to Joe that time was going by unusually fast. His normal paced walk slowed until he collapsed into peaceful and restful, though short sleep.
After only two hours of slumber Joe woke startled by his new surroundings. While the desert lay behind him there was a change in in what was in front of him. It was a wall of water appearing to rise from the sandy desert floor, like an upside down waterfall.
Joe's normal life was about to change forever.

Chapter two is next - stay tuned.
