Dreamer - An orginal story by BettaMiah
I woke up dazed, something in my water smelt oily. I believe it was the reason I had fallen asleep. Did a human do that? As my eyes ajusted I could only see shadows, had someone moved my tank? Where was I? Suddenly, a flash of light stormed through the room. Wait, was I even in a room? If so, the room was moving. I could feel the water in whatever I was sitting in sloshing around as I was thrown about. I turned to investigate, and I hit something. A plant? A new decoration for my home? No, it was plastic. I turned the other way, plastic once again blocked me. Another strike of light flashed, this one held longer. And I saw them.
Dead Bettas, friends, kin, those who I had known. Spawn bothers and sisters. Dead. I frantically scanned for any other Betta who might be alive, but the lights flickered back off before I could find another living being.
Where was I? What was this hell filled with dead bettas? Why had they died? Where was home? And how could I get back?
For hours I found myself colliding head on with plastic, searching for a way out. In my confusion I hadn't been able to solve it. I was in something other than a tank. A small confinement tank. Frusterated and sure of my hyposthesis, I layed down. To pity myself or think of a soloution I don't remember. All I know is whatever it is I chose to use my time with did me no good. In the end, I ended up exhausted with a throbbing head fom the multiple collisions.
