It's me, Tosh again. I've been thinking about my past and thought I'd write a little more in detail about it.
I remember it like it was yesterday. I was curled up in my egg, fully awake, fully alive. Today was the day I'd meet the world. I'd been trying to crack the eggshell for some time now, my Moms scent was so strong. Like she was there helping me escape, but it was me on my own. I finally made a spot big enough to make real progress, with that my first breath of fresh air fulled my lungs. But--wait? Where's.. Mom? I remember looking around to see these weird creatures on two legs surrounding me. Moms scent was here, but where is she? I took my first steps and quickly ran into some sort of see through barrier. These creatures had put my egg inside of what seemed to be a bigger egg, but you can't see it. After a few days of living in this see through egg, the creatures took me out. They started giving me weird foods and kept poking me with this little... pointy thing. It hurt and made me not feel well.
After a year or two I realized these painful, pointy things were making me stronger. The creatures kept feeding me strange foods with bad after tastes. They liked putting me in this place where the floor moved by itself to see how fast I could run. boy were they surprised when I stretched my wings out for the first time and ran.. well, flew into the wall in front of me. They cheered, I'm not sure why.
Later, I started to understand what they were saying to me. They said something about experiments.. Making me stronger. Making me.. one of them? I didn't understand at the time, but they were the only family I knew.
After seeing what a success I was, they decided to show me something. All the years I'd been here, they've never done this. They took me to a new area in this place... It was dark and cold. There was a scent I recognized, but I'm not sure from where. In the distance I could see a figure laying there in the dark. As I got closer, the scent seemed more familiar. They were from my nest! I remember smelling them. I was exciting, finally I get to meet someone like me! But, as I got closer I realized he wasn't like me... He was sick, and suffering. I was told the testing didn't work on him like it did me, and he's suffering now. He was their first test subject, I came after him. They said he was called Kas
, and the chemicals in him caused something about being lost in his mind, not able to control his body. This could have happened to me... Why did the tests on me work... My brother is suffering...
Are there more like us?
My eyes were full of water, I felt so.. used. The creatures I'd thought were my family turned out to be monsters hurting my real family... And all this time I've just been okay with not knowing him... Not knowing where I'm from.
They told me there was more to this project, that I would actually be turned into one of them. That's all I know right now... I don't know if I want to know any more.
