Turtle schemes. Kicks her legs. Wonders why these strange creatures are carting her off when all she wants to do is lay her eggs, drop them into the dark, dank hole she dug. Later in life, will she talk to her young, tell them the story of how Jacob, her firstborn was almost born airborne? Turtle dreams. Lays an egg. Wonders why these strange creatures returned her to her hole. Remembers the story or her older brother, captured and forced to live his life in a glass house. Scoops dirt over her eggs and wishes better things for her babies.
