100 Words a Day 686

The ground was bare except for the rare, brown scrub brush, rooted stubbornly in the sandy soil. The origins of the arch were unknown. The shiny black surface was covered with runes, worn from years of standing against the relentless wind of the empty plain. Some of them I could barely make out. The rest were unreadable, and for that I was eternally glad.
