Twisting and Slithering

Storm found herself acting rather like a clock spring. As she unwound and stretched to slip between two boulders. When she had gained the hollow behind them, she twisted to find another gap. Repeating the process time after time as she slithered her way between the shattered rocks that once had once formed an entrance to a underground waterfall.
Her genetic traits developed by the Force organisation, assisted her to cope with the bodily manipulations needed. Later her irises would change colour to deal with the lighting which illuminated the underground levels of Diamond. Levels which had expanded over centuries.

My apologies for I am rather like a clock with a broken spring at the moment, stuck at one point. In my case that is in the fictitious world of Diamond. You may be glad to hear that I do intend to fit a new spring.
I must for other stories are waiting to be told.

    Interesting to have her weaving between the nooks and crannies like that.

      Thank you Dale, I was not so sure if it sounded right. In a version with a higher word count, I would go into more detail about why the genetic manipulation of Storm genes happened

    Let’s see what The Force has in store for Storm now. By the way, nice pic Michael 🙂

      yI have one more descriptive piece to pen about Diamond. Then the Force organisation and Storm lock horns so to speak. Ps. I do not think the picture is nice.

      Thank you Neil, I was not so sure if it sounded right. In a version with a higher word count, I would have gone into more detail about why the genetic manipulation of Storm genes, happened

    You have a way with words. I think I know so much about Storm now, described in just 100 words.

      Thank you shivamt, In my note books I have a complete description of Storm, even down to her nail colour.

    This is intriguing, and makes me want to know more about that world.

      Thank you gahlearner. Over the last few years I have been thinking more and more about this underground world. To a point now that I think I am ready to write a novel about the place and those who inhabited it.

        That’s great. Good luck!

    She sounds as supple as a snake.

      Genetic manipulation can have benifts as well as drawbacks. Thank you Liz.

    Dear Michael,

    Sounds like Storm is turning into a snake. Intriguing.

      Thank you Rochelle, It seems like genetic manipulation has imprinted snake like abilities. In time all will become clearer.

    The descriptions are wonderful. A beautiful picture of the whole scene is painted here.

      Thank you so much for your feedback, it was appreciated

    Your spring may be stuck, but this is great descriptive and enjoyable stuff.

    1. Michael Humphris

      What a lovely kind comment, thank you Sarah Ann.

    I’m envisioning a new member of The Incredibles 🙂 Interesting character.

    Don’t abandon Storm completely until we know what is going on.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I think you are safe forthe moment. Storm and Issy will reappear, but whether we will get to the bottom of what is going on, only the future knows.
