Betta Story-The Outdoors
Chapter 1-Outside (Stream's POV)
I waited in my cup. I had been there for days now. I had come with about 150 other bettas. Some were bought, a few had died, but most, like me, waited. When people walked by, we would swim around and flare to try to grab thier attention. Sometimes it worked, others, they just walked away. I got fed a few pellets a day. My water had not been changed since my arrival. I sometimes sat thinking about back when I had a larger jar to live in, or before that when i was with my brothers and sisters. Several of them had come with me, but all of them had been taken. I was next to a brilliant red betta, with a delta tail. He looked like he wanted to leave, to.
One day, there was a commotion in the pet store. There was quite a bit of water in it. One store employee tripped on a cart. The cart hit our shelf, and alot of out cups fell into the water. Mine wobbled, then plummeted in with them. the water was frigid, and the shock of it made me numb. As we tumbled in the water, our containers opened. Anouther employee walked by the automatic door to open it. The other one opened as the water rushed into the exit. We were washed out the door. Outside was very warm. We washed down some blacktop, then into a little river of water next to a road. The water was warm, too. We all settled down and began to enjoy ourselves. The red betta swam up to me. "Hi, I'm Spring!" He said.
"I'm Stream" I replied.
A betta that was up front said to the group, "Why don't we stay as a group together?"
Replies of "Sure!", "Yes!", and "OK" Came from the bettas.
"I stay" I said.
"So will I" Spring said.
Our adventure had begun.
