The Desert

25 May 2017

One day, many years ago, I was walking through the desert, following a dirt track to nothing.

At a crossroads, under a murderous sky, a man appeared. He said: “I can make you the greatest writer in the world, the biggest star in the literary firmament, read for the rest of eternity. I can give you immortality. All that, in exchange for one thing.”

I looked into his eyes, and I knew who he was and what he wanted.

So I killed the man at the crossroads. And I ate his heart as the black night swallowed up the desert.

Now, I am him, and I don’t need to give anything away.
