Prisoner: A Story of Hopelessness
I felt the need to conjure up a story, so here ya go.
I probably looked lifeless to those giants. Sitting in that one spot where I wouldn't cover myself in waste. The spot where the ammonia stung the least. I was here too long. I have already understood the symbols on the giant's packages. I was going mad. I would constantly flare and nip at my own tail, and I have lost my hope of getting rescued. I already heard that they were getting a new shipment, and that mean I went farther behind the shelves, taking away my hope for good. They did not know it, but all those hours laying was because I was staring at something wonderful, It was a wonderful craft of those giants, they called it a Fuuvil Edgg, or something like that. I called it heaven. Every night, I dream of jumping through those waterfalls, resting on the shiny black rocks, and dancing around that swirly plant. It was the only thing giving me hope, that some day, I would be drowning in love. I the other Bettas ignore me, I will have a short chat with them, but I would often stay at my perch.
One day, I awoke to a startle. I was shaking everywhere, I even saw my breakfast slosh out of my containment cup. When the bubbles had settled, what I saw was a very exited looking female giant. She looked no older than 5, but I didn't mind. I knew I was getting a new home. I saw the other giant, the mother, walking to get her girl. I surge of elatedness flew across me when I saw we were headed directly towards the Fuvial Edeg. I was so close that I could read it properly, the F-L-U-V-A-L E-D-G-E. Then we turned, and I sank back to the bottom of my cup. I heard the girl say; "O MOMMIE MOMMIE CAN WE PUT HER WITH SHINY IN THE FISH TANK?!" "Yes honey, we will put him in the Aqua Block." She responded. What in Davy Jones locker was an Acua Bok? Who is this Shinny? And why does she think I am a girl?
I am a male sapient being.
