I completed this very short story just half an hour before and thought of posting it ASAP. I would appreciate everyone’s comment for this one because this one’s really close to my heart.
Someone was touching perhaps the outer body of mine, but I am not so sure whether that is my outer skin, or would the final membrane of the bubble in which I am, be called my last layer? I don’t know.
I could just sense that something was happening around my last, last, circle because the reverberations were reaching me.*
The globule in which I reside cannot be touched by anyone, like not even a single soul except my own self. It’s completely sheltered. Protected by whom, I don’t know!
So, whatever was happening was beyond my reach but then why was I affected by it? Perhaps, my guardian knows.
This whole circumscribe in which I am, nourishes me in every possible way. I am growing hastily. I am going to be really big.
I can move but the area is small and sometimes I don’t even try to be in motion; nonetheless, I still feel movement. I guess when the chaperone moves I also move along with it. But why?
Maybe I am inside my protector. How can that be true, though? Is someone else inside me too? And then inside that person there is another person and another in that one too and so on…
Oh no, what is happening. Where am I going?
I resist all the outside force and try to remain in my place, but I guess I don’t have that much strength.
Where is my protector? Why isn’t it doing anything?
They pulled me out finally but the atmosphere is weird, the bubble is missing, the serenity is lost, and the place is unknown, wrong.
And then I don’t know what I did, how I did. I made an unusual sound, a liquid was flowing through my face and I was somehow feeling better now.**
Someone held me in its arms, I am sure this is my chaperone, I could feel it. Hmm, more better. I am safe. The liquid stopped flowing and I slept.
