Okay, so when I got Stu, I started a small journal. Now that I have three betta's and I feel in the writing mood again, I decided to re-start along with Ace and Spike. I might not get around to this often, but meh. Here goes.
I am happily swimming in my 6.5l tank. I have settled down since Human has brought me home. But I am bored. I have begun the most annoying habit of tail biting just to annoy Human into buying me new things and showering me with attention. She regularly approaches my tank and makes sounds as if talking to a fry. 'Oh you cute little thing!' Human says one day. I have already decided I am not cute
. I tell her this by flaring and darting away to admire the back of my tank decoration.
I.Hate.Life. I am stuck next to a small inferior one-of-my-kind. It does not flare. It simply sits there. Nothing. I peer out of my cup to see two-leg-man staring back. My attention has been re-caught back to a bustling crowd of two-legs who have appeared next to me. There is four of these two-legs, two male, two female. They inspect a large home which has been divided into three parts. I start thinking how nice it would be to live in there with the blue female plakat in the sorority. I notice a large and ugly two-legs approaching my cup. I am enraged. I flare at ugly-two-leg telling him to back off. Suddenly my cup is hoisted into the air, and I am being poured into a plastic bag. I see the other four two-legs as before and I note a young-small-two-leg holding my bag. And....is that.....? The inferior one-of-my-kind! I swim in circles. Why not the blue female?
It is a nice day. I am settling myself down to the bottom of my cup, my back facing the stupid male next to me. He does not realise the patience one persists to put up without complaining for a day. He is all flare, no action. And my fins are clamped. It is annoying to move. I notice the usual hustle and bustle of the Friday morning crowds. A woman comes past with enough perfume on to kill a Koi. I notice the Betta Spenden next to me being taken away. Next thing I know, I am being thrown into a bag and taken away as well. This is horrendous! How could someone treat me, a supreme being of nature, be treated like this? And being taken to the same place as the dumb creature next to me! Ugh!
