I am in the cool darkness with my friends, many of us together. We have been together for as long as I can remember. Several of us start drifting toward a noise in the distance. It gets louder as I am drawn closer, faster as I go. I am caught. I swirl around as I am pushed upward.

What are these chemicals they are exposing me to? They are making me dizzy and kind of sick. Now I am traveling again. I feel the movement slowing and sometimes stopping for a time. The walls are strange, almost as if they are made of a single mineral and not mixed lumps like home.

I have not moved in some time but the pressure to move is still there. I suddenly move and fall into a bright light. What is this? The walls are so smooth and hard to the touch. I can barely see as the light is so bright. I find some other things in here, like me but so very cold and hard. One shatters as I touch them.

I feel the thing I am in moving, tilting. Everything is dark again which is nice but it is all soft and warm around me now. So strange and unpleasant a feeling. I hear thumping and whooshing noises in the distance as I began getting sick from the goo that is becoming part of me. It is much worse than before. I think this is the end.

If you can, please remember me. My name is the same as all my kind, Water.

The end.
