Disclaimer: I don't own Maximum Ride. I wouldn't want to own it anymore, to be frank. *sigh*

Author's Note: Yep, it's short. Nevertheless, sometimes I think that people focus too much on "omg they haz wings" and not enough on what it's like to be constantly hunted.

Circumstances: The contest stated that the drabble was supposed to contain ten sentences, each with one fewer word than the last.

Acknowledgments: Absatx pointed out that one of the lines contained too many words to satisfy the challenge. Thanks a ton for that.

Every time a bone fractures, it's a little weaker afterward.

Stretch a rubber band too often and it breaks.

Constantly worry a piece of cloth- it unravels.

Why do they think we're the exceptions?

Programmed elasticity only lasts so long.

We begin to fall apart.

Spools of yarn unwind.

Threads give way.

Sanity weakens.
