Well, the prompt was an incident that changed me.
I decided to do when I got my bettas.
We had to write a summary for the real story, so here's mine.
(I may post the long version later..)
After I got a couple bettas, I began to learn something. Bettas are more than decorations. More than live-in-a-vase pets. They are utterly amazing, and the fact that people let them live in cups is horrible. For the first few bettas I kept, I was blind. Not literally, I didn't see how fantastic they were. How much care they needed. I did learn, I did see light, and I think I valued from that. Bettas are as much as a pet as dogs are.
Eh, thought I'd share that.
I dunno if I'm too fond of it, but oh well.
