"What is it, sir?" asked a man who seemed as if he were on vacation and not out scavenging for supplies in the desert heat.
"The sun," answered one of the women, "I don't see it. It's so hot."
They all looked at the horizon with concern. They had seen the light from the sun on the horizon every day since they arrived in this wasteland but now there was no sign of its return.
There was no sign that any other people were out here, and the only sounds they made were their own breathing, scraping feet through the sand and a faint wind blowing across them.
But there was one thing. Yes ... somewhere in the sand, a bright corner of a piece of paper, caught in sunlight, sticking out conspicuously in the expanse of the desert. One of the women pulled it out and realized it was actually a list of fifteen facts, and it went:
