I had you for almost a month. You were the sweetest little thing. I didn't really pay you much mind at first. . .but I grew real attached to you. I loved walking in from a stressful day of class only to see you come right of from the plant to stare at me. . .and how you'd follow my finger for a little while as if you were playing with me. . .you had such a beautiful personality and I miss you so much. . .it kills me to see your paper memorial every day. . .
She died so suddenly. . .one day acting fine. . .and then she doesn't come up and I found her just laying in her plant, gone. . .all her fins gone as well. . .no signs that she was ill. Just gone suddenly. . .
I've only had you for about a week. . .and it's surprising how attached I got to you. You were really sick. . .and there was too much wrong and too much time gone by. . .who knows how long you were sick before I rescued you. You don't know how much you made me smile with your spunky sort of aggression. . .and how much you made me happy the first time you dropped eggs. I don't know how I fell in love with you so quick. . .I just wish I could've saved you. I hope that you felt every bit of love in this last week.
She died this morning after I began treatments for her ailments. . .she was really really sick. I know that if I hadn't brought her home a week ago, she would've died sooner. . .but I had so much hope that I could save her. . .and now she gives me the drive to work harder to save Steve and to try and have the pet section in my WalMart closed down. . .
