Desert Oasis

by Miles H. Rost

“So this is where you ended up, eh?”
“Yeah. Who would have thought that I would be the heir to the Sultanate.”

Mark O’Connor and Rahim Zaharia walked down the desert path within the walled town.

“10 years ago, we were pulling pranks on Melinda Clouse. And now you’re the Sultan of Watoomba.”
“8 years after becoming, I’m still not used to it. There are so many different things I have to do. Sometimes, I need an oasis from this desert.”
“Ever thought about coming back to the USA?”

Rahim shook his head.

“The people need me here. I am their oasis in this unforgiving desert.”

  1. An interesting piece of dialogue and a good video. what more could one need. In the desert a glass of ice cold water.

    • A kindly sultan can go a longways for a desert community. I pray that there are many of them in our world today.

      Thank you for the comment, and I’m really glad you like the song. Medhi doesn’t get much attention from the world, alas.

    • Even if it’s being a leader in your home, it takes sacrifice. If you’re not up for the task, you have to be ready to step into that gap.

      Thank you for this comment. It was quite insightful. ^_^

    • The sultan is based on a good friend of mine from high school, who I really miss talking to. Alas, we dropped after a real long time.

      Thank you for commenting!

    • True leadership takes sacrifice. Sometimes, it means forgoing other comforts, such as being in a nation like America, to do such a thing.

      Thank you for the comment!
