The world is full of mysteries and strange occurrences, but some are more inexplicable than others. This is the story of a small town that was gripped by an unsolved mystery for years. It all started with a strange symbol that appeared overnight on the walls of a local high school. No one knew what it meant, where it came from or who put it there.
The sun was setting behind the mountains, casting a golden glow over the small village below. It was quiet, almost too quiet for a place with so many people. The few vendors left in the marketplace were packing up their wares and heading home for dinner. But something was different tonight; there was an energy in the air that hadn't been felt for years.
The sun had just begun to set over the vast desert landscape, casting a warm orange glow on everything it touched. The air was dry and hot, almost suffocating, but that didn't stop her from running. She had been lost in this barren wasteland for days now, surviving on what little water she had left in her canteen.
