Destiny calls, her song she sings on the wind.

It was what she had been telling herself for days now. After the events of Decay, Keiko had no more heart for her country, something had changed within her, something important. She didn't hate it, but she just could not live there anymore. Everything that had happened put her further and further off until she couldn't stand it any more. Now as she faced this endless expanse of desert, waylaid at a place where the earth had swallowed a city, she felt only cold. She felt no warmth from her thoughts, no warmth from her memories, no warmth for her desires. Her entire family was gone, swallowed by the desert in front of her, only wishing her to live on and become great. She could hear ther screams as they fell down a rift, burried by the sand and gone forever. Still, for their sake she would go on, she would make due, and she would survive.

She had almost nothing, and she knew that if something didn't happen, she would die out here in the desert. Her best bet was to get out of the desert and head for civilization, though the prefix civil was almost a joke. All she really wanted was to get away, to find an airship or a boat, and make it out to another country. The nearest to her was the river country, though it was under the protection of the water country. She had heard about the Hard times they were having as well though, and figured that they could always use an extra hand there. She was sure she would find work there, or at least something better than this.

Wrapping her face in her wind scarf, she headed east, following the sun and the stars, knowing that she would make it eventually. She had to.

Sand, sand, sand, and more sand. The lonely girl dressed in a traveling cloak and not much else stumbled, step by step, across the great desert of the wind country, sand in her eves, clothes, mouth, and just about anywhere else that was exposed. The golden sand was all she could see for miles around, but yet she kept walking, knowing that eventually, if she kept going, she would have to see something else. Still, it was quite daunting, walking alone with only enough water for another day or two, and barely enough food to keep her going. There were also plenty of things out in the desert that would describe her as food, and she was trying to keep an eye out for those, from unusual sinkholes to footprints and tracks. She had done well so far, but the buzzards circling overhead were telling her something completely different.

"This is ridiculous, but I had to do it. There's no home for me anymore. I have to keep going."

It was so hot that her body didn't even want to sweat anymore, and every time she thought she felt a bead of sweat, when she touched at it, it had already evaporated into steam. The temperature was at its hottest, and she had gotten carried away drinking her water, which was almost all gone now. Her vision was blurry from fatigue, and her steps had slowed to a crawl. The sand filled breezes were nothing more than gusts of hot air, and the only relief was that the air was moving. She had finally decided to put her cloak back up though, and so her face was covered from the sand and such.

She could see pretty far into the distance as well, but it was no help to look and only see the blurring haze of the heat rising from the ground. Still, she thought that she spotted a person in the distance, but she had been wrong before. Once, she had spotted a person and it was just a tall rock, another time it was just a desert shrub, and she had even thought she saw a child running to her, but it was just a tumbleweed. Still, from what she could remember from the map she had seen, she had probably traveled most of the distance she needed, if she was going the right way, so it could have been.

As she looked closely, the one person quickly turned into two, and she even thought she could see some gleam of metal on one of the figures faces, and she began to get hope beyond hope that it was someone from Suna or just someone in general. But it was still just a blur so she also thought her vision could have been failing her, but she had hope even then, and decided to wait until they got closer. With renewed purpose, she sped up her walk, trying to cover the distance to make sure it was a person, not realizing that every big step she took, she was not only draining her energy faster, but walking closer to her demise.
