Log entry 1.
Things are changing. So there I was minding my own business in one of mum’s rooms, then something snapped. It was so cool cause for a moment I was flying. But it didn’t last long coz then I was on the ground, so I thought mum was just giving us a day out. But I heard her shouting, “Alright, my babies you’re all grown up now!” That’s when I knew something strange was happening. But then it wasn’t that bad, mum wasn’t so far away (I think) and I could still talk to all my friends. After all we were all peas from the same pod, they’d say in the future.
Log entry 2.
It’s dark in here. So, the other day a tall figure with rather shiny black feet that then turned into fluffy brown at its knees, came with a big spoon. It was poking around on the farm and I think by accident it turned me over and now I’m in the dark. I tried to scream for help but the figure didn’t hear me. Last thing I remember hearing mum shouting was “You’re going to be alright, you’ll be out soon.” At this point I’m sort of confused. Did I do something wrong? Am I in trouble?
Log entry 3
It’s been about four days, and I’m really confused. Its dark and crummy around here, ‘they’ keep pouring water on me I think to cool me down, or to keep me hydrated, I don’t know. Suddenly I’m always so thirsty. Did I mention it is hot in here?!
Log entry 4.
Things are beginning to get really weird. Things are growing out of me. I think my friends will notice that I am changing. No one else is changing. I think something is wrong with me. Tell someone you say?! Heck no! They will most likely remove me from this place I’ve grown to call home. I think its best if I just lay low and hope if we ignore it, it will go away. What would mum do if she were here?
Log entry 5
I’m really freaking out here. I know it’s going to sound strange but there is a green long thing growing out of my side. It’s been growing for a while now and I’m afraid there will be others. I can’t hide them anymore. They are beginning to show. If this is my last log entry, just know that the scientists got me and I will probably never see the light of day again.
Log entry 6
My tentacle (I heard the long green thing was called this) has tentacles! I can kind of move them around, I think that’s kinda cool. I’m still thirsty though. I have been feeling a breeze on my head. The same breeze as of the cool of the night, I think they are letting me out. But I have changed so much. I’m not brown and fat anymore, I’m tall and green. Will they accept me? I’m scared, I have no control over what is happening to me. What if they laugh at me?
Log entry 7
I saw the sun rise today. I had missed it. I have tentacles below that are still buried in the ground and that I’m now using to look for water. They are helpful to curb the thirst. And now around my neck are these really pretty green leaves like what mum had. I can see her now, she looks so happy and proud. Funny enough all my friends look like me now. Looks like it was a natural and normal thing… hmm who knew?
Word on the street is I’ll turn into a log soon, I look forward to log (pun-intended) entry 100. But I’m no longer afraid. Change feels good, looks good. I might end up liking this fully.
