The sun came up as usual, that's all they were waiting for. It was enough if they were broken the world was solid and the solar system was fine. It sure hurt them a little that with all they have been through the world just kept moving and nothing changes. As if the world stopped moving it will do them some good or their pain now is valid for the whole world stopped and notice it, but still they were relieved that the world is still moving on because when they come back on their feet they will find a ground to walk on and the sun to walk under a night to rest and the morning to work in.

Xavier and Yves stood close to the object and the old man started enunciating his command to them. “I need you to carry me, I mean carry this monitor to a spot in the village and for that I will reward you with money. How about one hundred Francs for each and every step?” Asked the old man. “You have got yourself a deal.” As Yves held the monitor in his arms he felt the supportable hotness of it.

A ruthless eagle was piercing the vast blue sky which had no uniquely shaped cloud. Down on the ground and in a distance, Xavier and Yves were slowly walking. Xavier looked a little tired whereas Yves seemed more ruthless and determined than the eagle.
Nothing was in the horizon. On the side of the road there was cactus trees which bared green and not yet ripe prickly pears. Temperature was high. “Stay strong, Xavier, I have a strong feeling that soon enough, we are going to reach our destination.” Said Yves with an optimistic tone and gave Xavier a pat on the back.
