Well i will begin actually writing on August 1 (it will beon this thread) but for now here is a little prologue to the story since i can't wait! This part is written in rose's POV.

Prologue​
Seeing phantom after all of this time was wonderful. The male that caught my eye that day in the cups, the boy that was not all flare but had some thought when it came to love, not just wanting to be a dad under his nest watching over his fry but wanting to make sure i was happy. However i was not as lucky as he was when he got purchased... I was bought by one of the evil giants. This one put me in a a little bowl with a boy who tried to spawn with me and ended up just ripping my fins and i got removed from the bowl to get healed. I heard the giant say " Man she is useless! I didnt even get eggs from her how am i supposed to get some money from selling the fry without any!!!!" After i was healed many days passed that i recieved no food, no water changes, and not even any attention.I had to try and survive. Luckily i was taken to a store and sold to a new owner. This giant was wonderful. My water was clean,my belly was full, and every day she came up to my tank telling me how beautiful and special i am. Now i am really living. And seeing phantom made living absolute paradise!

This is great, reminds me of Jonathan Livingston Seagull which I just read, which is a book written from a seagull's point of view, I always think of it when i see gulls now..

Chapter One
Bliss
(Phantom's POV)
I swam around my flooded palace happily occasionally flaring at the love of my life. I had come to like TT, Razz, boe-ra, and what's-his-face, W-H-F didnt talk much so i never really took the time to memorize his name.

The gang swam up to me and Razz said " Jeez, you really like Rose. She must be really special for you to remember her after all of this time." " Well it's pretty hard to forget about someone like her. She is WAY different than the other girls believe me." And boy she was. She taught me that there was more to life than just blowing a bubblenest,embracing,fathering the kids than moving on. She believed in finding a single fish and sticking with them unless you found out later that they really weren't the one for you, much like giants. She was the one for me and i was sure of it. I knew that nothing could split us apart because being with eachother was just pure bliss.

Chapter Two
My Life: Ruined
Everything was going absolutely perfect. Rose and I were together, the gang and I were friends, and other than them i had the whole tank to myself. " This is the life!" I thought to myself as I hungrily ate a bloodworm. I rested on my leaf for what seemed like hours.

Later i was startled when a huge wall came crashing down in the middle of my tank nearly crushing boe-ra. After the dust from the gravel had settle i swam over to investigate the situation. " This definitely isn't her4e for nothing." I told the others. TT chimed in " I have heard of these. It's a divider. It means someone else is gonna be put in the other side." " NO! That is MY side! I can't see rose from here her tank is right next to that side!" I was furious and i didn't care who went in that side they were gonna pay, unless of course it was Rose. Now THAT would make my day!
" Look, we know how much you love her but sometimes this kind of thing happens. You'll see her again i promise." Razz told me encouragingly. I didn't care though, this was MY territory nobody else was allowed! I decided to just try to relax and lay on my leaf to try and calm down. I quixkly fell asleep.

I was awaken by a voice i had never heard before. Newbie... i thought hatefully. My eyes quickly filled with loathing,disgust, and unending rage as they began to see the tank again. I saw another male betta. I flared at him when i realized he was showing off to the girls. "Hey! Your certaintly not showing off to my lady now are you?" I said in the most terrifying tone i had ever used in my life. " Well it depends, is she the cutie with red fins and that pale body?" He said. " Yes!" I screamed. " Well then yes, i am showing off to her." He said as he flared at me. " Now will you go away punk this is my territory now." He said to me now flaring with HUGE EARS. I was shocked at how scary he could look. " Hey dumbo, i am not moving an inch unless you stop displaying to Rose!" I said. "Oh, so that's what her name is!" He said as he turned around to call out her name. I tried to call the betta back but i didn't know his name and he ignored me when i yelled "HEY!"
Ok, flashback time! Remember when I said nothing could tear rose and i apart? Well i think i found a little exception to that rule...​
