Prompt for December 24, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

He calculated how long it would take to travel to twenty miles necessary in the hilly terrain, looked at the dwindling supplies in front of him, in particular the water, and came to the conclusion that he was going to half to walk during the day. He didn’t want to as hiding from satellites at night was so much easier, but he had no choice. He had one day left to get to his ship before it would automatically take off and leave him behind. His employers were very strict about that when they had “persuaded” him to join their venture. The ship would leave and he would be stuck here. Alone. Forever.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
