I was sitting on a shelf, 3 walls blocking me in. I was cold, but I shouldn't complain to much because my water at the very least was clean. I rested in the corner of my cup and watched as a young woman picked up other cups with other fish. She didn't even glance my way. She walked away. I could hear her talking to another person not far away just on the other side of my wall. A she was saying something about possibly getting "This one" then she walked over again she glanced at two other fish she had looked at before, her eyes carefully scanning over the cups, then they fell on me. I swam to the front and looked up at her. She didn't put my cup down. She said something about looking for one just like me.
She walked around the store with me. She looked at water conditioner and tank decor. She grabbed the conditioner and then looked at food. She picked up a pack and looked at it, i looked at it eagerly "Please please get it" I thought, and then she put it down. I looked up at her and then rested on the bottom of the cup. I wasn't to fond of this moving stuff.
Walking up to the cashier she paid for me and then we left the store. I froze it was freezing cold outside. I longed for the store again. We got into a vehicle and drove a little ways. At least the car was warm and the young woman did her best so I wouldn't splash around in the cup to much.
A few seconds later they were out of the car again. They set me in the sun and left. I sighed it was cold, but i decided that it was colder outside then in. I watched cars and people walk past, a few even stopped and looked at me. Soon the 2 woman came out and I was back in the ones lap.
Then we walked into a house. She set up a small tank and put a heater in. It was nice and comfy. I thought we were done. I settled in and the woman occasionally stopped in to check on me. After a few hours I wondered if I was ever going to be let out. And then after a while the heater was unplugged. She said it was to prepare me for the cold.
Around 9pm she came again this time with a towel. She wrapped my cup in the towel saying something about holding the heat in. I was then put back into the empty tank.
