[TWWM] A new way of life

Origin prompt: 
6. Their Purpose
Show us how they feel about being transformed into an esk.
What is their sense of purpose like in their new life? Did they become a Traveler or a Trespasser?

It spends hours gazing into the water, searching for a reflection that is not there. Would it recognize itself if it saw what it was now?
The ceaseless yearning it feels abates marginally as it runs its toes through cool waters. It seems..not quite happy--happy is too strong of a word--but not quite sad, either...

It does not know what this fleeting, painfully ephemeral feeling is called; it does not know that we have a word for it: contentment.

Just for a moment, it is content, and all is well within its small world.

I'm not sick of drawing or writing about 3988 yet lol

Thank you for your kind words! c: The description can be confusing if you are unaware of the context of the art, as it's related to this character's lore and loosely related to the fact that it is an esk. You can read more about esk and the group related to them here.
