Prince:
As I was about to investigate a particularly interesting clump of plants that I had never seen before, I surprised by a another crowntail. I instinctually flared in response to him, though I had no intention of fighting. Doubting that my half-hearted flare would be truly intimidating, I swam backwards a few inches waiting for the jet-black crowntail to make a move.

As I was about to lunge at the other crowntail, I was startled by Neptune randomly darting at the other betta. He seemed amused, then shoved him aside. " My hero..." I muttered. I decided it would be best to just leave, but I ways worried the crowntail would follow us so I bit into his fins quickly, just to show him not to mess with me. Still fuming from rage, from the copper crowntial actually DARING to flare at me AND ram into me I swam away with Neptune, who obviously wasn't very keen on our little encounter. I remembered him fearlessly attacking the other betta, and had to admit... he had spunk. He actually tried to fight... for me. I felt am odd warm feeling go through me. Oh no. I knew this feeling, had felt it before. There was no going back. Neptune was not so much as an ally but... a friend. I groaned. I had fallen into this... this trap once more.

Sorry I haven't RP'd in a while, guys! Been so busy with my fishies. :)

~~~Olive~~~
After facing off the other betta, I swam away and hid behind a clump of weeds again. I needed to come up with a strategy. A strategy for survival.

~~~Manny~~~
It had been an hour, and the female had given up. I was extremely low on oxygen, and I darted up to the surface and took a long, deep breath. I suddenly spotted a big silver halfmoon with diamond blue tips on his fins. I considered running for cover, but I was tired of cowering in fear of other bettas. What did I have to lose, anyway? decided to show him who was boss. I swam toward the betta, gills flared and fins extended, ready to fight.

~~~Oliver~~~
Jensen seemed preoccupied with his bubblenest, and I was hungry. "Hey, I'm gonna go find some food. I'll be back soon." I said. "Jensen nodded, and I swam off into the depths of the rice paddy. Suddenly, I come face-to-face with a white double tail halfmoon female. She appeared to be blind in one eye. I flared at her. She flared back.

I'm thrown in to the water from that tiny plastic prison they once had captured me in and held me there like a hostage. The quick current catches me throws me forward some more. I can't seem to catch my breath. I'm dying. I'm dying. I'm...

Alive. I'm alive I have awoken. It takes more than that to kill the former prince of the Waterflash Kingdom! What am I saying?! Former? I still am the prince of course, just because I'm captured by humans doesn't strip me of my title! I'm a prince. Now and forever.

I explore my surroundings it's quiet here not much to see unlike my glorious home. Small fish wander the river bed. The small and helpless, I do not know them, but I swear to protect them against any evil. I'm a prince. I'm a protector. I will protect them. I'm watching some of the fish talk quietly. I notice one of them is a betta. It's purple with white- tipped fins. He talks quietly with the other fish, he seems quiet, almost shy. He's not a threat to me. I overhear them talking about why we were thrown here. That there's no use for us because we're not money-makers anymore. We're just useless pretty fish.

I'm still listening to the conversation when something catches my eye. A large black and navy-tipped betta is swimming with a smaller betta. I flare, he looks evil merciless and I'm about to fight him.

I'm about to confront the betta when I see another betta swimming toward me. I turn to him. He's flaring and angry. I prepare myself for a fight. I'm used to this. It was my job at home. If he thinks he going to get me he's dead wrong. I've dealt plenty of enemies at the kingdom, and when I'm done with them, they're nothing but a couple of scales. If he's challenging me, it's not going to change. I'm a protector. I protect my kingdom, my legacy. No one will come between me and that, no one. And this fish isn't going to change that.

It seemed like I could finally get some rest at that little cave thing Neptune mentioned then yet another curious betta caught my eye. He has a curious look as an almost completely silver fish with diamond blue tips that seem to catch the sun and sparkle a little. I try to ignore him, but he swims up right in front of me and begins to flare. " Oh come on! What does a guy have to do to get some rest around here?" I say, annoyed. I just want some sleep here! I am finished here. No more running away. He's obviously not going to let me do that anyway. I ram myself into the betta, using my whole body force to weaken him. I back away, satisfied, but he gets up and only seems fazed. Then he bites into my fins. Hard. He looks me in the eye with a strange gleam in his eye. This is getting weird. I have a bad feeling that this guy is tougher than those I have previously met in the arena.

Before I can fight the light blue halfmoon the black crowntail rams into me and backs up satisfied. I shake it off as quickly as possible. The betta is stronger than I imagined, but I'm just as determined as ever to beat him. He doesn't no what he's up against. I lunge forward and bite into his fins hard. I didn't bite as hard as I could have but I wanted to know if he was the enemy. I push forward and ram into him as hard as I can and he looks like he's going to double over for good. I slam him into the riverbed and shout to him, "Who are you? Some kind of enemy?! Tormenting these poor fish?! I'm warning you AND your little guppy, I'll get you both!" I didn't want to hurt the small helpless guppy, but if he was with the enemy, I wouldn't have a choice.

Prince: After the betta and guppy swam away I checked the damage to my fins. It was just a small nick, and was barely noticeable, but it did hurt a bit. I decided to let it go and not try and follow them, and find a place where I would not be likely to run into any other aggressive males, I just didn't want to fight.

Yuki: I looked curiously at the plakat flaring at me, and flared back at him. He hadn't come up from my left side like the copper male before, and I was not startled by him. But I wondered whether he would be too aggressive to talk to. After living in a sorority, being dumped out here without any familiar betta was a bit lonely. I stopped flaring at him and ventured to talk, and see how he would respond.
"Um. Hello, there." I said cautiously.

The other betta rams into me again and again and again. With each time I felt weaker and weaker, and everything seemed more distant. He slams me into the riverbed, and just as I think as I'm about to black out, I snap back to reality. The halfmoon babbles threats at me as I try to collect my thoughts. I obviously can't get out of his grip, he's much too strong and I'm feeling weak but I struggle anyway. there is NO WAY I am possibly going down without a fight.Who was this loony toon anyway? who did he think he was? A prince? He snarls at me, and I catch another look of that proud, defiant, look in his eyes, even when he says"Who are you? Some kind of enemy?! Tormenting these poor fish?! I'm warning you AND your little guppy, I'll get you both!" he gives me a disgusted look and I glare at him with my eyes full of hatred. The message registers in my head. Get you both? Little guppy? Oh, great he must mean Neptune. " Leave us alone, we are not the "enemy"! We haven't been tormenting fish..." Of course thats not exactly true but this oddball doesn't need to know that! Suddenly, I hear Neptune speak up.

~~~Oliver~~~
The female quit flaring at me, then spoke. "Um... hello there"
I stopped flaring as well. No more fighting for me, not after the little purple female had taken that chunk out of my caudal. It was just too risky. "Hi..." I said cautiously. "My name is Oliver. What's yours?"

~~~Manny~~~
Before I even have a chance to fight the halfmoon, this jet-black crowntail with navy blue tips on his fins rams into him, and I am forgotten. I watch as the halfmoon beats the pulp out of the crowntail, and I am suddenly seized by the urge to save this other male. If I didn't act soon, he wouldn't have any more chance for survival. Just before a guppy fry was to speak, I rammed into the halfmoon. I bit a chunk out of his dorsal, giving the crowntail time to escape. The halfmoon's attention was now focused directly at me...

~~~Olive~~~
I sat under the weeds for hours, but nothing came to me. I decided that it was no use, and I'd just have to take whatever life threw at me, without a survival plan. I swam out from my refuge under the weed, and began to search for food, right out in the open.

Yuki:
I was relieved when the other male stopped flaring, and calmed down a bit.
"My name is Yuki. It's nice to meet you, Oliver. Were you dumped here by humans, too?"

Prince:
As I was swimming through densely packed plants and weeds, trying to a avoid another surprise encounter with another male, I spotted a purple and white female swimming out in the open. Forgetting my earlier hesitation about being in a place where I could meet an agressive male, I flared up and began a dance along the edge of the weeds I had been hiding in, trying to catch her attention.

Just as I'm about to prepare myself for another blow from the betta, a blue betta with a crooked back charges at him. Huh. I was seeing all kind of curious fish today. I seize this chance to escape, and drag myself as far away from the silver halfmoon as I could, with neptune leading the way. I collapse in a heap, then glance at him. I knew I shouldn't have got all mixed up in this "friend" business! " Whoa... why are there... 6 of you...? " I mutter. Then everything goes black.

After dumping me in the river, my human just... walked away."Wait! Don't go! " I called. But she kept going... and she didn't even look back. Tears fill my eyes as i watch the human I had known for as long as I could remember walk away. Its clear she's not coming back. I look around. This is nothing like my home. Where is the colorful gravel? Or my favorite place to play, the beautiful bridge i could swim around and play hide and seek with my owner? I see there are other bettas here. Terrified, I hide behind a leaf. i am terrible at camoflauge. My red drastically clashes against the lush green landscape here. i suddenly feel so... small. After all, this place is so big and scary, and I'm sure there are fish here that would like nothing better than to do something terribly awful to me. Maybe not, I tell myself. Maybe someone will be my friend, maybe everyone here is nice, maybe everyone else is scared too. I want my human more than ever right now.

"Yes," I replied to the female. "I was." I looked at the ground sadly. "Since coming here, my ways have changed. I don't feel as aggressive, and I don't really want to fight any more. It's just not the splenden way... have you felt the same way?"

~~~Olive~~~
I had just swallowed a rather large mosquito larva when I spotted a big copper crowntail. He was dancing, obviously trying to catch my attention. I sighed. I really didn't feel like going near another fish right now, but I reluctantly swam over to him.
