Buddy's tale

Ok, you know Buddy, that fish the girl got in the Aquablock video? (If you haven't seen it, here it is: http://www.thebalancingact.com/BA_vi...LKVI2924G01476


Here's the story of what happened to the fish afterwards.


Part 1
I had had a terrible day. I'd been poured into some sort of tiny box. A little girl's pet. That's what I am now.
As we left the room where I'd been poured into this death trap, the little girl's mother took me.
"I'm sure some little girl will want him," she said. "But really, of all the gifts she could have given you,this was the worst one."
"No, Mommy! I want him!" she screamed. "I want Buddy!"
"Oh, all right," her mother sighed.
I couldn't believe my ears. I wasn't wanted?
I was put on the little girls bookshelf and fed one pellet. One pellet! Oh great. What was this place?
I swam around even though I had no room, and then I heard a rrrripppp. My beautiful fins! The fake plant had ripped them. I felt no pain, only shame. I knew that however long the woman had assured my owner's mother that bettas live, I sure wasn't going to live that long.
The girl only fed me one pellet a day! When she changed my water (which was rarely), I stayed in the death trap while the water crashed around me. I hated this place.
Then, one day, the mother picked my box up and took me outside. Suddenly realization crashed down on me. I was being sold!

Part 2
My box was put into a bigger one. It was oddly shaped. Then it started to move. I flared at everything as it flashed past. I was terrified of what would come.

Then the big box stopped moving. We were at the place where I'd first been given to the little girl.

The woman picked me up and marched in.

"I find it highly inappropriate that you gave my daugther this-this creature!" she shrieked, shoving my death trap of a tank under the nose of a disapproving man.

"Of, course, of course," he said, taking my tank. "I will arrange for it to be disposed of."

Disposed of! I was a live creature, not a piece of trash!

The man took my tank and set me on his desk. I was left to await my fate. But at the end of the day, he turned off the lights and left. Had I been forgotten? If fish could cry, I would have been sobbing. Instead I swam over to the corner of my tank and rested as best I could with thoughts of my (sure to be horrible) future.

I was a living creature who needed food! When would the man come back? I didn't know, I could only wait in my cold, unheated tank.

good story! I love the idea of basing it off of the aquablock.

Thanks, baylee767!

Part 3
The next day, the man arrived. He picked me up and took me to a familiar place-the pet store!

Oh no, I thought. Not again!

The man walked up to the counter. "Do you take refunds?" he asked. "This fish was not right for the part."

"What?" the salesgirl asked.

"The part of SuperFish in a new musical," the man said. I had no idea what he was talking about, and the salesgirl didn't either. She rolled her eyes.

"We don't take refunds on live animals," she said.

"I don't care, just take the fish," the man said. Then he left.

"Poor little guy," the salesgirl whispered to me. "SuperFish, huh? I think he made that up on the spot. Anyway, we need to get you out of that tank."

At the end of the day she took me home to a large, filtered and heated tank.

"Here you go," she said, pouring me in.

Well, now I live with her. She feeds me more than one pellet a day, and in the clean water, my fins healed right up.

Oh, I have a new name, too. It's Freddy. Don't you like that better than Buddy?

The End

My Fish:
