Drabble #10

Filling the capsule, Sarah understood her new shape. The restructuring [program started and she felt herself melt and solidify in stages. Her skull had been first, letting the new spongy container mold around her brain – the one irreplaceable organ. Then, as her thoughts shifted into softness, her legs and arms relinquished her bones, their tiny brethren in her ears hearing their clinks against the metal. The skeletal bits dissolved into what the scientists called “the muck” and her new limbs slithered and slid up and down the container. She was becoming fluid, a more suitable body for a new environment.
