In a world where the oceans have dried up, and to survive every human has to work twenty-four seven, the only downtime a person gets is when going to the library.
I wrote this for a competition run by Vocal. The stipulation was that there had to be at some point in the story a ship on the horizon. So yeah I gave myself a challenge by creating a story in which there were no oceans.
It didn't win but it was a fun story to write, hope you enjoy it!
