It looked tasty so I wrapped my mouth around it.
When I tried to swallow there was a sharp feeling in my mouth.
Then a pulling sensation.
Then a massive lurch forward.
It felt as though my lips were being ripped out of my head.
I tried to resist but the more I struggled to swim away the more painful it was.
I knew I was in trouble when I couldn’t breathe.
The bright light I only ever saw through the shimmering shield of my watery home was suddenly all I could see. I desperately wanted to close my eyes but couldn’t because I don’t have eyelids.
Then, I was flying for the first time in my life. Flying above my home with empty lungs. Flying like those creatures I often saw above me.
When I hit a hard surface I was grabbed by the hard hands of a big monster.
It ripped something out of my mouth and I screamed. I don’t think it heard me.
You don’t want to know what happened next because it involves a long sharp object – and being gutted and skinned alive.
It was very unpleasant and I died from agonising asphyxiation.
That was not a very good day.
