The First Sand Rider



The Second Week

We must be getting closer to a Nightmare.  The past two nights I have awoken in fear for no apparent reason and Scipio Scipio has been suffering from horrendous dreams as well.  We have also lost two of our camels.  We had found a rocky outcropping and had decided to rest there for a moment.  Camouflaged and nestled among the rocks was a great lizard.  Scipio and I were lucky that it decided to attack the two pack camels first, but even so, we barely managed to escape.  Ahead of us we can just barely make out the Blood Canyon.  This natural barrier is named so due to the red color of rocks which will tower at least a hundred or so feet above us.  We must hurry through them, without our pack camels we have no food and hardly any water, we only have the water pouches which we carry on persons.  Scipio is becoming more and more irritated and short tempered as we travel.  I'm beginning to fear that his mind is becoming unstable.

The First Week

It has been a week since we departed and started this journey.  So far neither Scipio nor myself have seen a single Nightmare.  However, we have seen a few of the great lizards.  These lizards must be larger than the Sultan's palace and breath large rivers of fire.  Remarkably these massive creatures are capable of flight as well making it very difficult for us to defend ourselves against them.  In order to deal any damage to them one must get far to close for my comfort in order to drive weapons deep into their thick skin.  Arrows simply bounce off of their thick scales and so are useless against them.  Luckily it is not common for a great lizard to make it this far and we believe it must be due to the enormous amounts of water they must consume to survive.  This however makes things more difficult for Scipio and I.  Twice now we have come across an oasis drained of all its water.  The two of us are now rationing our water as we realize we can no longer be so dependent on the oasis'.
The Nightmare Record- The First Week
Here's the next entry in this.  A majority of these are going to be relatively short since they are meant to be entries in a journal.

So I'm in an absolutely horrid mood right now.  I'm under a lot of stress to pick up my diploma because my mother wants proof that I graduated.  We just had a massive fight which has left me in literally in tears, and I don't cry often, its very difficult to make me cry.  She's decided to take my car as well.  This means I can't go to the barn and I either have to hitch a ride or somehow manage to figure out how to get a bus pass.  I'm also begging my old laptop to stay alive long enough for me to save some documents in a format that my new laptop can actually read which is why there has been a delay in uploading those chapters I've promised you.

Anywho my mom also went on about how much she and my dad have been supporting me and I just really wanted to scream at her how they don't have to support me so much in some area's when the main area I really need support is with my writing and getting published.  I am serious whenever I thank people for +fav  or collecting one of my stories because it really does mean a lot to me.  Al the support that I've gotten from friends and absolute strangers on here is what drives me to continue.  I know I can make money writing, and I am aiming to reach that goal, but my mom is constantly telling me to go do something else.  She keeps telling me to look at others schools and figure out what I want to go into next, but I honestly don't know what I want to do next, I really dont.  The only thing I really know is that I can write, and I love it.  I know this passion and talent can get me somewhere, but as hard as I keep trying, I keep finding myself hitting a brick wall when it comes to my family.  All of them are have majors that they've gotten a degree in and so they expect me to continue on with that.  I know our whole family is under a lot of stress right now since my brother needs a kidney transplant, and I know it's especially affecting my mom, but when she gets stressed I always feel like she just uses me as her metaphorical punching bag by trying to lessen her own stress by adding more to mine.  I just begin to feel like she thinks I've regressed to being 11 instead of 21.  I just don't know what to do what now.  I'll mostly be writing just to calm myself down, but I'm just so lost right now.

I'm sorry about how long this rant has gone on, but I just really needed to get this off my chest. Thank you for reading if you have.
