A spawn and a mistake
I was put into a smaller tank that wasnt even all the way filled. I swam around surveying the new territory. Alright now i had to do this as planned. I made my bubblenest and double checked for quality. I noticed a few weak spots and quickly fixed them. Everything was ready for tomorow. I needed to rest now and of course think over the plan, so i would execute it correctly. " It's gotta be perfect." I said as i fell asleep.
The next day as predicted rose was in my tank with an invisible barrier surrounding her. Now was the time to put the plan in action. I looked at her with no emotion as she went completely vertical for me. " So are you ready Roger?" She said excitedly. " Um, ready for what?" I asked. " For spawning, duh!" she said half happily and half annoyed. That was a good sign. " Well sure I guess..." I swam away biding my time until she was finally released. I watched her dance around and hide. "I don't know if i can go through with this... she really wants this and i don't want to make her upset but if i do this for her than phantom will threaten my place as dominant male i mean he said he gave up! But wait, i would make rose happy if i did this and who cares if phantom doesnt want me to if im making her happy then i guess it is the right thing to do even if she isnt exactly the love of my life..." i thought. So i did what most males did when spawning... i embraced with her....
