Chapter 1: Hope after all
I felt cold water surge around my body as I was dumped in a plastic cup of doom. I charged the side of the cup. Over, over, and over........ "It's not going to work you know" I jumped, and turned around. A beautiful red halfmoon femal was looking at me, she said, "My name's Sasha. Your's?" I could just stare, she was so beautiful. I finally was able to say, "The name's Runner" Sasha stared at me, I twisted around to see what i looked like. I was a red crowntail with a blue wash. She suddenly blurted out, "Humans!!! Pick me!!" I started flaring as I saw two humans, a big male, and a little girl. The male picked me up, and said, "he looks healthy" I flared, hoping they would also pick Sasha. The little girl picked up Sasha, "Can we get her too?" The man nodded, he picked up all the supplies we needed, a nd walked to the front counter.
I struggled in the bag, cold air suddenly filled it as the bag was opened. We were both dumped into the same tank, filflthy water, cold water. We both shivered, afraid to even move. Someone spilled food into our tank, we ran to eat it. Sasha looked at me, her face fell, "I know what they want" I looked at her, "What?" She looked at me with a sad face, "They know nothing about bettas, they just want us to breed. Well I'm not doing it, we can be rebels together." i nodded, "Agreed" So we both just swam around, the humans looked at us angrily. Suddenly the man punched the tank ut of anger, we yelled, air was all around us. We flopped around, thankfully the girl shrieked as put us in some water. I knew right then that little girl cared for us. The way she looekd at us, and saved our lives. But we could only hope she could save our lives once more, because the man was coming at us angrily.
Thanks!! I have recently been sucked into writing stories, I love writing them. This is my second story, I started another one, but I got bored with it. This one I wont get bored with. So much suspense.
