~~~Oliver~~~Jensen peeked his head out from the weeds, happy that the larger betta saved him. "U..um...Thank you for saving my life." He called out to the betta, staying in his hiding place, afraid of the other being hostile to him
"Erm... you're welcome." I said. This was the first time I'd spoken to another betta since I was but a fry, and I was felt rather awkward. I looked down at the tiny, defenseless betta, and knew that I could never hurt it, knew that it was my responsibility to protect it, and that it would never survive on its own.
