Just at the edge of Old Rose's borders, The Drought can be reached by a small footpath. This small clearing has been made into a sort of scenic garden; a small, quaint wooden bridge spans across the small pond, and some wild flowers are growing alongside the water. There are little notches on the railing that are perfect for setting fishing poles. The sunlight filters through the palm trees overhead, and a light breeze ripples the still, clear water, which is teeming with koi fish. The full effect is one of peace and serenity.
The Drought seems to be nothing more than a sight-seeing spot, but you can understand its intoxicating pull. It is the best-kept secret in Old Rose. During the day it is often deserted, but at night you can often find young couples enjoying the "sights" behind the flower bushes.
