In the centre of the night, two shadows from different directions darted between tents and crates until they met at the pen holding the camels. out of a word or looking at each other, one of them opened the gate during the time that the other collected a half-asleep camel.

Thankful for the howling wind which masked the sound of their footsteps against the sand, they made their way east. After an hour of walking, they helped the camel lower itself on the sand and they both got on its back. As the camel righted itself up, the youthful fellow on the rear wrapped his arms around his loved one.

This was the merely way the two young males could think of to be together. Oh yes, they were the one and the other youthful and charming to behold likewise. The young guy in front had thick lashes and unfathomable brown eyes which matched the color of his longish hair that ended in hairy tufts. whilst the solely thing that could be seen of the young stud holding him were his piercing blue eyes as his face were overspread with a patterned cloth of red and white. But the blue orbs that peeked through slits were sufficiently to indicate the stylish face hidden within.

Through the night they traveled accompanied by gusts of wind here and there. They knew not exactly where they were going, just the general direction of an oasis discovered by one of their tribesmen due east, a twelve hour trek by camel. As the sun peeked from the horizon, the sudden change in temperature could be felt and the heat just got stronger as the day wore on.

Heat waves floated all around ’em and the 2 travelers felt its intensity. Their throats hurt from lack of water, but they ignored it thinking it was only a matter of time until they spot the oasis. But after a couple hours of nothing, the two started to panic. The camel kept its steady gallop across the sand, but its riders felt sluggish, thirsty and the begin of hunger. The curly-haired young stud almost gave up hope after two more hours, but then the love of his life slumped against his back and the head of blue eyes rested against his shoulders.

That gave him a bit of strength and though his arms felt like deadweights, that guy steered the camel on one more direction. After some distance and just as the sun set down to the west blanketing the seemingly endless desert in eerie orange light, something sprouted far ahead that was not sand dune, dead beast bone or cactus. As they approached, the ‘something’ grew larger until it was revealed to be the oasis they sought.

Slipping down the camel, curly hair helped his paramour on his feet, but blue eyes collapsed on the sand. Heart pounding against his chest, hirsute hair half-dragged the body of the young fellow this guy had grown to love. When they were inches from the water that mirrored the darkening sky above, this guy unfurled the cloth that hid blue eyes’ pretty face then scooped a handful of water and made him gulp it. Pressing his ears against blue eyes’ chest, the faint heartbeat brought tears to his eyes. he gazed at blue eyes’ full red lips, the lips this chab had dreamt of kissing for so long. As the tears fell down his cheeks, this chab placed the softest kiss, not quite a whisper, on blue eyes’ lips. Though this guy wished in his heart to get a glimpse of the blue eyes this chab fell in love with, the lids which hid ’em were closed forevermore.
