Hi, my name is Mex, a Nevia Myrmex ant. I had a strange childhood because I was born from spiders and I have the ability to camouflage myself when I feel threatened.
[[next]]While growing up, and to this day, I have been bullied by the rest of my colony. They tell me, “You’re not a real ant if your parents are spiders; you’re not like us!” Or, they also pretend that they will eat me and say to each other, “Food is ready!ready time I pass them
[[go on a journey]]
[[stay home and handle the bullying]]
After that, I decided to pack a bag and go on a quest to find out a way to fit in, and to prove myself; and by the time I left, I had already matured into an ant twice the size as everyone else, so I wasn’t scared of going on this journey by myself.
[[hunt for food]]
[[look in the trash]]
I tried to stay home and handle the bullying from the others in the colony. I did handle it, but nothing really changed. Nowadays, the only place I feel safe in is my room at home.
I was hungry so I decided to find myself some food. But I could not find any, so I decided to hunt for food. While I was looking for something to eat, suddenly I found some insects coming at me with great force. For a moment, I didn't know what to do. I had to make a decision quickly.
[[fight the insects]]
[[run away because you can't fight]]I decided to look in the dumpster for food. I did find food but it was all mixed and disgusting, but I did what I had to do. I decided to say, "The winner gets everyone's food!" After they accepted it, a very intense fight began. I took a couple steps back, until they were the only ones fighting. They knocked each other out, and I ended up being the only one standing. So, I took the food and left. I was scared to fight so i ran away into the bushes
