Five Sentence Fiction: Yearning

     So this is my first time ever participating in Five Sentence Fiction.  I was informed about it by my super cool school teacher who sometimes participates in it on her blog, so I decided to give it a try........

    
 Yearning

     Their mouths are dry.  Their feet stained with blood from walking leagues upon the sharp rocky ground.  The sun beats waves of flames on their backs.  They have abandoned everything for this, this that had so abruptly diminished in their land.  They keep walking, walking with the desperate hope of finding that which has been lost, its memory forever implanted in their skulls. 

     
     
     ...Let me know what you think!
