Drabble version


Janet threw back her head, wailing a song of sorrow and suffering. She felt everything the other felt; its desperation to escape, its fear and its rage, but most of all she felt its agony.



It was dying slowly, brutalised by the strange beings of this world, so far from its own home. Caged as she was, she couldn’t help it, but she could share the burden of its pain.



“What can you feel? What do you know?”



Looking into blue eyes, she wished she could communicate with the man.



‘I know your people are hurting mine, and I grieve.’



The End





Extended version



“What d’you think it’s doing?” one asked quietly.



“I think it’s weeping.”



Janet threw back her head and wailed, a song of sorrow, loss and suffering. She felt everything the other felt, experienced each blow that was struck as if it were landing on her own body. She felt the other’s desperation to escape, felt its fear and its rage, but most of all she felt its agony.



It was dying slowly, inch by inch, brutalised by the strange beings of this world, so far from its own home. Caged as she was, she could not reach the other to help it, but she could ease the pain it felt by sharing it.



“What can you feel? What do you know?”



Looking into blue eyes, she wished she could share what she was feeling with these people, make them understand.



‘I know your people are hurting mine, and I grieve.’



The End
