I don’t understand why I’m here. This is all so strange. The surface is hard when I should be feeling the softness and warmth of the forest floor. I should be able to run free for miles and miles without having to turn a corner once. Hang on what IS a corner? And what are those strange things staring at me? In the forest, they would be dinner, but I have to be nice otherwise I won’t get fed. My heart should be beating to the rhythm of the jungle but instead I am here; bored, restless and held prisoner.100
