everything is different

He woke with a start, he cursed himself. He couldn't continue to do this. Since loosing the group he couldn't afford to sleep for that long. He was starving, but the only animal he ever encountered was turtles. For the love of god, he though, why can't the world do me any favors, all he wanted was food. Moments like this made him miss his old life, paintbrushes in the studio, laughing with friends. God he missed his old self, but this new world was cure, no room for artists. No art, no love. But he had been in love, once. Just once. From his short experience he could only describe love as jumping into something unknown, it was scary, but at the end of the day it was just that, love. He cursed himself, again, he couldn't afford to think about such sad things he had to keep moving, just then he rememberd the container of pudding in his bad, this lifted his spirits like nothing else. As he ate his pudding he dared think a little bit more about his old life. He had loved reading he rememberd. Getting lost in the paged of a book was magical. BOOM. That shook him out of his thoughts.  Then he spotted it, his worst nightmares, the green goo, that threatened them all. He froze. Then he started laughing, he couldn't stop, he just couldn't, the last time he had seen it was..... No. He couldn't let himself think about that. He cuped his hand over his moth and gripped his radio. It was dead, had been dead for a long time, but it brought him comfort.
