Ok, you know Buddy, that fish the girl got in the Aquablock video? (If you haven't seen it, here it is: http://www.thebalancingact.com/BA_vi...LKVI2924G01476
Here's the story of what happened to the fish afterwards.
I had had a terrible day. I'd been poured into some sort of tiny box. A little girl's pet. That's what I am now.
As we left the room where I'd been poured into this death trap, the little girl's mother took me.
"I'm sure some little girl will want him," she said. "But really, of all the gifts she could have given you,this was the worst one."
"No, Mommy! I want him!" she screamed. "I want Buddy!"
"Oh, all right," her mother sighed.
I couldn't believe my ears. I wasn't wanted?
I was put on the little girls bookshelf and fed one pellet. One pellet! Oh great. What was this place?
I swam around even though I had no room, and then I heard a rrrripppp.
My beautiful fins! The fake plant had ripped them. I felt no pain, only shame. I knew that however long the woman had assured my owner's mother that bettas live, I
sure wasn't going to live that long.
The girl only fed me one pellet a day! When she changed my water (which was rarely), I stayed in the death trap while the water crashed around me. I hated this place.
Then, one day, the mother picked my box up and took me outside. Suddenly realization crashed down on me. I was being sold!
