Chapter 18

  • Claudine had been dreaming, it wasn't a bad dream so far but neither was it a good one anyway. She had been walking along the sands of a beach, she was the only one in the entire landscape as far as her eyes could see. It was sunny, too sunny, the sweat ran down her forehead and entered her eyes. She felt the saltiness of the sweat as it hurt her eyes upon entry into her eyes. She tried to blink them away but it only encouraged more to enter her eyes. Using the sleeves of her shirt, she slowly wiped the sweat off her face while pausing in her tracks to get the act properly done.
  • She looked longing at the coolness of the water but for some reason, she could not explain, she wasn't able to go near it and take a scoop to wash her face. Her shirt stuck to her body due to drenched sweat and her palms were sweaty to her touch. The waves of the beach rose and crashed pretty close to her tired feet as if taunting her that she couldn't bathe in it, nor could she take a drink. She wondered how safe it was attempting to drink beach water, that's how you got salmonellosis or cholera or something, isn't it? Anyways, she couldn't even dare to put her hands into it even though her throat was so parched it felt quite dry and scratchy.
  • She felt goosebumps appear on her arms for no reason and she suddenly stopped to fearfully turn around and see if anyone had appeared on the scene with her. But she doesn't see anyone. She turned her head to focus on moving forward but she couldn't shake off the feeling of being watched. She started to whimper, she was scared. A wild bear? Dangerous men? She couldn't start to fathom what it could be and so she decided to step up her pace. Maybe if she moved quickly she could find shelter out of the scorching sun up ahead or find people who could help her and give her something cool to drink. A cold drink of lemonade would be so nice right now. She sniffed back her tears as she trudged on, convincing herself it was better not to look back again.
