21. The Watcher in the Water

I awaken; movement in the outer world disturbs the water.

Many somethings - some small, some large - disturbed the peace of the water.

Hunger!

Voices, such as hadn't been heard in a long time, penetrated the water.

One voice, calling out over and over again, the same words in different order.

Something else! Must get closer!

The little ones has it! Close to the water it stands: food and a prize!

Only a short reach. Pain! Food and prize escape.

No! Do not take it in there! Mine!

If I cannot have it, let them perish in the Darkness!
