Hi my name is Derik, and I am 203 million years old. I am a carbon atom, stuck in the ocean. Iv'e been here for so long that I'm just sick of it. I used to love playing with my friends while we wached the fish swim by. But now all of my friends have moved on without me, so I'm really bored. I can't wait until I get transfered somwwhere else.
Yay I've moved on! Wow the view is great up here, I can see for miles. Apperently I made a chemical change from the ocean to the atmosphere. It felt so weird, moving for my first time. Hey It's Paublo! I missed him so much. Now we can play fun games together like we did in the ocean.
Litter + Waste
Wow, I'm somewhere new, that was fast, it only took 10 million years. As carbon dioxide, i've just been breathed in by a big oak tree, through the process of photsynthisis, which is the opposite of cellular respiration. Look at all the animals and pretty flowers, I'm going to love it here. Hey is that a deer, Paublo used to tell me stories about them. opps, no thats a donkey.
Bacteria + Fungi
"What's happening", I heard somone yell. Me and a few other carbon atoms were noticing how dark it had become all of a sudden. Then someone yelled, "we were just consumed by a donkey!" Wow, I wasen't expecting that, I was so distracted by the beautiful sceneray in that forest, that I didn't realize I was being eaten. Well the good news is I only have to wait until this donkey dies, to get our of ths gross place.
It's so dark in here!
Yes, I'm finnaly out of the dark. Oh poor donkey, At least I got to move somewhere else because of his death. I think I'm now litter and waste, that would explain why I'm sitting in a brown pool of stink.
Yes, I've finnaly decomposed into bactteria and fungi! Eww it feels like theres little creatures crawling on me. Hey, is that Paublo? Oh nevermind thats not him. I miss him so much, I wish he was here right now so we could play tag in nthe bacteria.
