I began to feel my energy drain because of the heat.
I crawled behind the sand dune and laid down.
Looking around I saw a creature rise from the sands.
It’s long, gangly limbs emerged from beneath the earth.
As the sun rose to its peak, I was blinded to the next moves of the creature.
With a blink of my eyes, the creature appears in front of me.
The sharp teeth and unseeing eyes of the creature were the last things I saw.
