A New Begining

 

      Having endured nine months within an organic liquid containment sack, my first breaths of the alien atmosphere were laboriously drawn within the confines of a military hospital.  Most of the patients had experienced, either directly or indirectly, injuries incurred in the wars that raged far beyond the sodium-chloride laden waters to the east and to the west.  I was there for another reason, a "Birth".
     For some time prior to the "Birth", I underwent very specific genetic engineering governed by an evolutionary process whose orgin has long baffeled the many diverse members of my species.  I was growing, cell by cell by cell, as specific codes produced the necessary external body parts and internal organs that would be required to survive on this hostile planet.
