Yeah, this is what my brain barfed up. @.@ Anyway, I'll have more to write about later. I'mma have to write more recent things, because this happened a while back. >.>

Last time I saw Harmonia was probably only two, two and a half weeks ago. But it feels like it's been forever. Even though my memory of her is fading, I still think I can describe the last time I saw her for you. It was a quiet afternoon. Our human was asleep. Harmonia had been flirting with me the whole day. It was a really good one. I mean really good one. And then, it was cut short. To preserve what dignity I have in this place, and to preserve the dignity of my beautiful lady friend, I'll refrain from going into too much detail. Suffice it to say my bubblenest was finally being put to use. When I straightened and looked around, looking for dropped eggs and distractedly watching Harmonia drift, my eye was caught by a flash at the front of our tank. My eyes went wide. I instantly forgot about everything when the tank's hood opened up and the green mesh net lowered into the water. I darted. Harmonia righted herself and looked up, and she darted, too. The net caught her, though, and she was dropped into a little cup of tank water. Our human was talking. She seemed stunned- and didn't seem too happy, to boot.

I swam around frantically. Looked for any eggs I might be able to find to salvage my babies. But there were no eggs. Harmonia wasn't even in my view, anymore. But someone else was. It was the blue fish- Hermes. He was swimming up to the side of his cup and checking out the tank. But I couldn't even look at him. To see his curiosity- like nothing had happened at all and no one had just almost had the girl of his dreams- was too much. I quickly swam back to hide behind my cave. It had gone from a very good day to a very bad day.

I wasn't really sure where I was until I had already been let out of the cup. There were a few plants around. A red cup- mug was what I had heard it called. Erin was sitting on the white nest she frequented, leaning over closer to the tank I had been placed in. She looked at me disapprovingly.

"Harmonia," She said, "I thought you guys would be okay..."

I swam behind the cup. Not into it, though. Just behind it. Hid there between it and the heater. "Well, we would have been just fine if you hadn't come and interfered!"

I wish I had been brave enough to shout it to her face. But I was humiliated. I didn't ever want to see that girl again. She couldn't have just let me have that one incident? How would she like it if a giant net had interrupted her? But the humiliation didn't end there. The next day, when she was finally sitting up in her nest, she looked at the tank and placed one hand up to her mouth.

"Ugh, God." She mumbled. She grabbed the white bucket and the tube and started the siphon. The eggs- the only thing I had left to prove it had happened- disappeared up the tube.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. - Albert Einstein

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
