|I'm new to this site and this is my first review, so I hope I read the review guidelines well enough.
I love your answer! Is it a continuation of a story of yours, or just answering the "question of the day?" I would like to have known a little more about the characters,but your writing is wonderfully detailed otherwise. It was as if I could feel the water quenching their thirst and the women holding on while the wagon bumped over the rocky trail.
Honestly, there were only a few grammatical and spelling errors. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to point them out, but there really weren't many. In your first paragraph, it should be spelled "horizon." Also, if I may, I think it should be, "But the harbors in this wasteland looked no more than a multitude of mirages." If you don't like that suggestion, then you should place an "a" in between "then" and "mirage", just for grammar's sake.
First sentence of your third paragraph, "cattles" should be "cattles'", since it's a possessive noun.
