Paramecium (tehe!) - Anyone!Mature

Swim. Eat. Swim. Eat. Warm, nutrient rich fluid. I wiggle my cilia and move forward. I expel water. The cycle of life.

A shudder goes through the liquid. I panic and crash into something solid. I move out of the way and wait. Nothing else happens. Maybe I had imagined it. I absorb some food.

Suddenly it becomes hard to absorb oxygen. I wiggle my cilia in a panic. But I can't move. It is as if the liquid has completely disappeared. My cilia droop. The air darkens, and I the last thing I remember are some strange vibrations, going through the air...

"%@#$, I dropped the petri dish!"
