The first thing I felt was warmth and comfort. Then I began to feel movement. As if the surface I lay was shifting, before slowly lowering. Then it began to rise again. What was going on? I wished my stubborn eyes would just listen to me and open so I could see. But they were heavy with dreariness.
However, before I could think about it any further though, a new thought appeared in my mind. I began to panic, opening my mouth and feeling my throat vibrate as one more sound echoed from the air in my lungs.
How was I going to eat! I could barely move! I opened and closed my mouth in frustration. Maybe if I keep doing this something will come into my mouth. I hope. The sound was so intense that I began to feel wet streaks trail down my cheeks.
In my blind panic, I didn’t notice that the surface began to lower once more until I felt a new motion. Although I was still concerned about food, I allowed myself to relax. It was...nice.

Before I could figure it out, she walked away. Quick as a wink, I followed her down the long hallway. She then headed into a new room. I paused again. For the past few cycles, I had been forbidden from entering this room. Somehow I m

I was bored. The room I lay has been empty for who knows how long. Actually I knew how long; a few months ago, the Mrs. came in and put something on the wall and I’ve been counting since then. Occasionally I would chat with my sibling who hung above me. She would try to entertain me with some music, but she only knew three songs.
“Brother look, the pretty looking lady is back!” she observed from the window.
“Sister dear, you are aware that i am not capable of observing the exterior of our confinement and you are also aware that that is the Mrs. not ‘pretty looking lady’.” I corrected.
“Oh look she has a little blue bundle in her arms. And she looks so much thinner!”
I would have face-palmed (if I had palms...or a face). Then her words finally sunk into my mind. A bundle? Thinner? That could only mean one thing.
“Where is she now?” I questioned, hoping to confirm my suspicions.
“Well she just dissapea
