They were tethered to their fears

The lushness was indescribable and just awe-inspiring. She felt more alive then ever as her bare feet crunched the leaves beneath her. They were so crunchy that she wanted to eat them. She did have some carrots with her that would go well with the leaves. She never understood how people weren’t taken in by nature’s beauty and bounty.

She stood still for a second taking it all in. She then put on her sunglasses and whispered to the ground. And then tbe earth swallowed her whole. Although really so dramatic happened. She just loved hyping things up. She was late and thus quickly took her seat next to others. They all had their oxygen masks on and she followed suit. They all thought she was reckless. But all she was doing was living. They supposedly wanted to survive but they were tethered to their fears. First item on the agenda was to decide who would be on the menu and a more tedious conversation was never had.
