I keep on writing the next chapter and right when I'm almost done my computer has an update and shuts the window down >.< Here goes this time... Wait, for the story. In case you don't know, the lateral line is this line that fish have on their bodys that aren't visible, and they can sense movement in the water with it.
Part 9: A mysterious Betta
It was dark out, perfect for what I needed to do. I gazed up at the surface unwillingly, and rushed forward into a leap. "Come gather here under peace for a meeting!" I quickly shouted. I announced it a few more times, and soon Bettas started showing up.
When I told them I had a plan to defeat the catchers, they helped me call more Bettas, and together we attracted MANY Bettas. They all looked at me, somewhat confused, but ready to listen.
I told them about how it was my fault the catchers and grabbers were there, and they started stirring, but when I begin discussing me plan they all started nodding there heads and flaring. The more I told them, the more pleased they grew. Afterwards, I said, "Meet here morning in two days. Spread the news!" And watched them swim away eagerly.
I settled down on a plant when everyone left so I could think. If this plan fails, then I'll probably get captured, and the catchers will probably continue there attack on the rice paddy. But this plan's so good... it shouldnt fail, but if it does, I will have to-
"That was a brilliant plan Moontail." A smooth voice said. I twirled around with shock, I hadn't sensed this Betta with my lateral line. A female with a bright copper body hovering over me.
"Who are you?" I asked. The female just chuckled and swished her tail, moonlight reflecting her copper.
"My name... is not important." She said. "I have come to congradulate you on your thinking. You will save the Bettas by doing this. Now, I must go." I wanted to protest, Bettas don't NEED to go anywhere.
I was too late, the female turned around and disappeared into the shadows of the night.
If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
