Eleanor (elmartin235) | 5 comments I believe this is a short story rather than a novel. A son who may be a thief is injured and being carried by his old father. They are looking for a city in order to find medical attention for the son. The son is complaining and holding his fathers head and covering his eyes, Due to the fact that the son is being so loud and covering the old man's eyes, the man doesn't notice the city lights in the distance. Finally, the old man is exhausted, his back is aching, and he needs water. He leaves the son to die and then can finally see the city in the distance.

I read it about 3-4 years ago, but I believe that it's somewhat old. It was in an English class, so I think it's a classic story.
