I opened my eyes to find myself in a small dark room, confined with the other members of my family in an enclosure with walls much higher than my head. Although I couldn't see beyond them, I felt safe because my mom was there keeping us clean and fed, and warm.
A couple times a day giant monsters would come and scoop us up one by one and talk to us in a strange language, and although they never hurt me I knew they could easily devour me if they wanted.
We grew quickly and one by one my brothers and sisters scaled the prison walls to find out what existed on the outside, but I wasn't so sure; I knew that those monsters lurked somewhere out there, along with bright lights, loud sounds and strange smells.
This is it though, today I'm going to conquer my fears and climb over that brown wall; I'm tired of being left behind... here I go, wish me luck!
I'm linking up with Lillie McFerrin's Five Sentence Fiction
