As beautiful as the everything looked I almost wished the ground was closer because the heavy and uncomfortable bright orange suit was starting to really annoy
I looked around, wide eyed, confused and lost. Ripples formed as I began to shake, the sweat was blending into the murky water as it never existed, the catchment becoming smaller as time went by. My screams of terror weren’t heard as the lethal chemicals attacked my fragile body. As I passed through the storage reservoir I was at content.

The sounds of despair echoed through the sterile surroundings, Ricocheting back, Resonating off six walls that contained me. Rustling,whispering, murmuring.
