Fountain of Internal Youth in the dead of a Desert.
The day was scorching the desert sand was hot to the touch her silver hair swayed in the wind as the hot desert air clung to her skin shadows casted under the wrinkles on her face as the sun beat down upon her she was attempting to get to her neighbors tent she was feeling her age today. On her way to the tent something quick and shiny caught her eye off in the distance to her left she shook her head and tried to talk herself out of investigating it's probably these old eyes playing tricks on me again keep walking she would say to herself but she couldn't shake the feeling of needing to go see to be sure so she headed left towards the rockey mountain side she ended up finding a cave with some shiny rocks that were glistening in the sun she let out a sigh just some pretty rocks now i will have to walk that much further just to get to the tent damn my foolish curiousity she scolded herself she took a moment and rested in the shade of the enterance of the cave and she could feel a cool breeze glide accross her cheek she took a deep breath in and then slowly let it out fully enjoying the coolness of it she rested a few moments more she quieted her mind and just listened to what was around her she could hear the wind blowing the she felt the cool rocks in the shadow of the cave and then a sound trickled ever so softly into her ear was that water she heard? she pushed herself away from the wall quickly and leaned in trying to hear it better is that actually water or her wishfull thinking? Damn her curiousity always got the best of her. before she could reason with herself she begain to walk deeper into the cave the sound becoming gradually louder as she became nearer and just then the sight of the nature made fountain overwhelmed her they hadn't found a good water source in months she quickly moved to the edge of it and filled her hads with the cool crisp water and pourd it into her mouth she could feel the cool water slide down her very dry throat down through her chest and settle in her stomach she closed her eyes and took it all in for a moment then took another drink she began to feel different no longer feeling her age of 70 in the hot desert but like a 20 year old on an adventure she assumed this was only due to her excitement and got up and ran to the tent to tell the others of what she had found not realizing that she had been rejuvinated inside and would eventually begin to look younger and they would all live forever.
