"So, according to this, she has a few months left."
"No therapy they tried succeeded?
"No, sir. She also contacted the foundations that are researching that kind of cancer, but it seems her case is special.
"I see she refused every suggestion for surgical removal. I'm not surprised, the chance of survival is almost equal to zero."
Silence took over the room again. Only t

That. Damn. Sun.
I stuck my tongue out from thirst. My lips were dry and cracked, and my mouth as if filled with sand. I tried to create saliva, but those scanty quantities weren't enough to wet my mouth. I walked on the rocky ground, overgrown here and there by resistant plants which found bits of earth in deep cracks, too scant for a tree which would give life-saving shade. I looked at the sky and frowned.
Not even a cloud!
The sky looked blue in a downright insolent manner, it's sapphire vastness uninterrupted by even smallest traces of whiteness. In its middle, like a gold lump, the sun shone, hitting my body with heat regardless

I gaped at Ruben with eyes wide open in surprise.
"I hope you like it", he continued while his warm smile slowly cooled, "for you're going to spend the rest of your short life here."

Wounded Dave was taking a walk though his land in the woods while on vacation at his cabin. He liked to get far away from the city and all its chaos and noise for a few months, once in a while. Shortly after starting down the path that went around his land, he heard an odd sound. He stopped and listened, thinking it was probably a deer.
