I urge my weary feet onward, reluctant as they are to keep moving. I can feel sweat trickling down my neck and forehead. My back and legs cramp in protest, but I keep going... My eyelids grow as heavy as my feet.

In J. S. Bailey’s second short story, a weary traveler journeys through a forest on her way to a distant town, but she runs out of water before she makes it to her

Recommends it for: Anyone that loves a good short story that says a lot in a little space!
It's not possible to say much with out giving away the epic state of things as you finish this tale. Yes, it's short. Yes, it makes your skin tingle as you work your way through the many questions in your head. Yes, it leaves you with your OWN thoughts on how to answer those questions. You either get it, or you don't. I got it. I loved it. I often wish these shorts were longer... she's such a good writer, a little is simply not enough.

I read this story some time ago when it used to be on the author's website. I thought it was well written, but was saddened by the ending, and wished it ended differently. I thought the story should have been longer, could have been more, and thought the point it made was too sombre.

But now, a long while later, as I'm struggling with so much in my life, this story came to mind. I came so close to giving up today. My heart was so low, my spirit so downcast, I felt I'd tried and tried and had gott

I'm not sure how to review this intriguing story without giving it away. Does it leave you completely satisfied at the end? No. Does it leave you breathless with questions and a million possible answers? Yes. And that's why I liked it. Like an onion, what you see on the outside is just the beginning. When you start peeling, layer upon layer reveal themselves. I can't stop thinking about Weary Traveler, and I'll likely read it again a few times.

Very short, but well written and manages to raise lots of questions...
And doesn't answer a single one of them :P

You might say I'm biased--and you'd probably be right.
