Drabble: Lazybones


He lives at the bottom of the ocean. Or, if not at the very bottom, at least close. His undersea world has no roof: no worries down there about the sun or rain. No walls: his only neigbors are a colony of tube worms, and they’re not the types to judge, or to do anything much but lazily feed on the by-products of chemosynthetic bacteria living within their bodies. He dozes away the days. Unlike his brothers and sisters, who each left one by one to terrorize some city or another, he’s never felt the draw of the spotlight.
