A deeply unknown world. Vast in space and time. At midnight, the spineless creatures gather. They shapeshift and flow in their beauty and splendour.

He was told of this mystery in the world beneath. He decided to carry out his findings. He relied on his dexterity and expertise. At midnight, he launched into the deep to see these spineless creatures. He was taken aback by their splendour. As soon as they saw him they dispersed. Lost in the waters.

That was the last time they were seen by humans. They became invisible to them.

Oh Thompson I’m so intrigued! At first I thought perhaps they were some sort of jellyfish? But then they became invisible never to be seen again!

Beautifully written and definitely gets the imagination ticking!

Wow! What an intriguing story, Thompson. I can understand why these beautiful creatures wanted to hide from humans… self protection. I often feel the same way! I agree with Emily, your story is beautifully written and really fires up the imagination. I loved it!
