Where our species came from, we don't really know. According to our mythology, our ancestors were brought here by this giant creature, so big, that our eyes are too small to see it.

They were dispersed by the creature, as it passed this place.

A new frontier, a brave new world. Pristine.

It didn´t take long for them to develop and turn this nutrient rich territory into a booming metropolis.

It was a great time for everybody, having lots of fun, eating, partying, dividing.

A lot of dividing.

We don't die we multiply, that was the motto. We had the binary fission thing locked down.

I mean it was all good fun in the beginning, but as time progressed, things were getting out of hand.

The place was getting crowded and smelly. The streets were getting filthy. Things lost their structure.

What was once seen as solid, was now trickling away in a putrid mess.

This territory was not going to be able to sustain us for much longer.

That's when I decided to split.

Not a bad job at all for a new entry.

A bit rigid, and sparse, but your imagery compensates nicely. For one getting their feet wet, I'll give another SnF.

Thank you guys.

And yes, I agree, it is a bit sparse and rigid.

I was a bit too quick, posting this. I should've slept on it and worked it out a little better.

Lesson for the next time.

You also know that there is no entry limit on these monthly contests, meaning you may enter as many times as you like, aye?

Btw, really liked your Life's a beach story.

S&F.
