It started yesterday as a bit of normal looking algae, but by the time the afternoon sun was high in the sky, it’d sprouted a worm-like body which began to move about the tank.
This morning I don’t know what I expected I’d see when I clicked on the overhead lamp, but it wasn’t this. “Its” body had morphed into something resembling a dragon fruit, knobby and pod like. The space between it and the castle had diminished considerably. The tube connecting the tiny scuba diver to his air had been severed; he bopped helplessly along the top of the water.
Written for this week’s 100 word song challenge for the Gorillaz song “Broken”. I intend for this to be the start of a serial story called “The Guest” to be continued through the month of October. Curious where it will go? Me too! Come back and check it out over the next few weeks .
Stay positive & love your life!
Listening to: Full Service – Carousel New album! I think this song is my current fave off the album.
Eating: A mish-mosh of stuff from Cafe Momo.
Random fact: I had fish tanks from a very young age as a kid. I was obsessed with getting new fish and ensuring the tank was in pristine condition.
