First time posting here. 'Allo, all.

The quiet is deafening in its utter silence. They can hear the blood pounding in their ears, anticipation, exhilaration. Their horses stirr, hooves kick idly at the sand. Arching black necks are patted by dark-skinned hands, wait, wait. Blue ink makes intricate patterns across their faces, brown eyes peering, tired, into the sun. The dunes are lifeless, not a sound can be heard. Heavy words, spoken from dry lips: soon, soon, it will be soon. No one believes it. Then, slowly, the cry goes up, move! time to go! and the horses catch onto the excitement, neighing loudly and charging off. The Med-jai are on the move.
