In the darkness, there was only fear—the fear she breathed in and the fear she breathed out. Quietly it filled the room, and while it could not be seen, it was nonetheless present, squeezing her with an invisible force until her life force was almost depleted entirely, and only a glimmer of her was still present. 

With tightened, aching muscles, immovably she sat, as the ship rocked back and forth  crests of rolling ocean waves, following a primal earthly rhythm, accompanied by slashing orchestral percussion sounds. Nausea lapped slowly between navel and throat, back and forth like the liquid trapped in an unsteady measuring rod.
