What a strange planet this is. Billions of creatures after millions of years of growth. Is this what we could have been?
I try to think back to my creation; to our creation, I should say, but it dances just outside of my grasp. I know it’s there, but I can’t find it. There’s no point, I guess. I’m the only one left who knows and I wouldn’t be able to tell anyone here anyway.
I never had a father. None of us did, but that was normal. We all grew up together. We all experienced everything for the first time, as one. My first kiss was our first kiss. My first dance, our first dance. My first child…well, one can dream.

    An effective aliens-in-an-alien-world feel to this. Could be a good opening to a story, lots of questions raised. And well written too.
