A Traveler (Posted: April 1, 2021)

A Story by Audie G. Couch
"

This is a very short story, but creative. I hope those who read it enjoy it.

"

Weary from the path behind her. A path that seemed to stretch far into 















horizon.  She still urged herself forward, on and on she went, one foot in


















front of another; for several days, and nights.


















To meet? Meet? Someone one; one she could not picture, could not 






















name. An unknown force, a cosmic being. Who came to her in dreams,






















and waking visions, guiding her to where, she did not know. Through






















places she had never been. Yet, the invisible strings that pulled her






















forward, knew; and her body followed.




















Finally, there in the distance of a vast plain, a paradise, an oasis.






















Moving faster now, she ran toward it, not seeing the giant statue in






















front; covered in various plants, and vines. A worrier, a protector of the



















Nirvana, it's wonders, and all it's secrets within.





















She was very close now when the statue started to move. The ground




















rumbled, and she fell to a heap before the warrior. This was the being























she had come to meet.With huge eyes falling upon her; a loud, and deep



















voice rang out, and the being said:















“Who goes there?"



















“A desert flower”, the traveler replied.



















“Far from home.”
















“From where do you hail desert flower?”















“I come from a high desert of enchantment in the South West.


















With a smile, the being continued:
















“Come then, eat bread, have a drink of cool water, and
















tell me your stories, and I shall tell you mine.”
