Carcass in the Sand – NEW Short Story on WattPad

The date on my original draft for this st0ry is listed as September 1984 so it is one of my earliest short stories, written when I was 16 or 17. I was exploring foreshadowing, man vs, nature, the use of metaphor, and an unexpected ending. My current edits reflect additional thoughts on war. The original name for the cat was Sibra. Based on my research, I changed it to Shala, an ancient goddess of war.
