Short Story for boys and girls written by: Valentina Trimboli.
One day, Martin bought a fish, a beautiful gold colored fish. His name was Billy.
Then bought the fish bowl, it was his temporal home, the fish was going to be released to the sea sometime.
Unconsciously, Martin raised his fish with fear, fear to the outer life, fear to swim free to explore everything from the outer life.
On Saturday, 8 of february 2005, Martin went to the beach with a group of members of the AHA (Animal health association) to free Billy (the fish) because it was an adult.
When Billy found himself in such a big space, didn´t know what to do, where to go or how to react to common things, like the boats, the bigger fishes, like how to feed, or where to live.
One day, Billy was swimming between the corals at the bottom of the sea, when suddenly, between two brilliant rocks, saw sharks approaching him. Billy was trembling with fear, the sharks heard his teeth trembling. Billy didn´t know how to react, looked at them and said:
- “Don´t eaaaaat me. Pleeeeease!”
The two sharks looked at him, laughed and said:
- “Don´t be scared little friend. We won´t hurt you, but you have to be careful, and eat something too, you are too skinny”.
Billy said sad:
- “I know, but my owner raised me in a fish bowl, I didn´t know what to do when he took me here, to the sea, I don´t know what to eat or where to live. Could you help me?”
The sharks said: “Sure, little, come with us”.
Billy followed them…
Nowadays, Billy is a strong and healthy gold colored fish, with a big smile that illuminates even the most dark places, has everything he wants. Has a warm home and two shark friends that help him and are with him all the time.
