Remake of my old, old fic "oasis in the desert" that never made it past one chapter bc school. I recently revisited it and thought of the story that never made it out. So here it is with new life breathed into it.
Sam is the healer of a slightly nomadic tribe that makes a home out of a desert. One day while out on an important mission, he is captured and dragged back to a city up in the mountains (about five days away by foot). There he is forced to begin a new life as a slave.
His fortune changes after a few years of bad luck, bad masters, and bad breaks. He meets a sympathetic but odd (also obnoxious, tricky, funny, troubled, and guarded) doctor named Gabriel.
While his husband, Gabriel, and half of the tribe's braves are away on the quarterly hunting trip, Sam and the remainder of his village are attacked by bandits and slavers. Those who aren't killed are taken to be sold. Sam wasn't supposed to be taken, but his assistance on keeping his fellow braves safe, get him captured as well. Terrible things happen along the road and after the market where they are sold, but Sam and the ladies keep the faith that someday they will get free and get back to their homeland.
Little do they know that help is on the way in the small but powerful form of one wrathful husband named Gabriel.
(Loosely inspired by Horizon: Zero Dawn video game. I like writing tribe stories and their usage of all sorts of tribes (and bandit slavers) jumpstarted my brain).
