Wow! I loved the imagery in your story, Renee, and the spirit you gave your “science experiment”! Am I correct in assuming it’s a worm ? Quite a thinker, this one πŸ™‚ That last sentence is so sad and yet, so beautiful, too. Thank you for your story.

Dear Renee, this is such an excellent and unique interpretation of the prompt! Loved it! I really enjoyed the angle and perspective from which your story is told, and unfolding it in such a mysterious manner worked so well! The story is intriguing and makes you put your thinking cap on!

Here and there I thought you might have been a bit repetitive, for example mentioning twice that sustenance is in abundance, only two paragraphs apart. There is also a sentence or two that doesn’t flow well grammatically, but nothing serious that distracted from the story.
Hope to read more of you! πŸ˜‰
