LAS 60


A week later and I was still confined to the tank. But all hope wasn’t lost, I knew that when I heard my mother’s voice coming from the reception area.”I don’t care if the government IS aware of what’s going on here! I want to see her!

Finally Mom looked up at me with her mouth hanging open. “What did you do to her?” She cried. “Look at my tail! Isn’t it wonderful?” I beamed at her. Mom looked at me like I’d kicked her dog or something. “Don’t be sad, Mom. I’m fine. Really! I’m so glad you came to see me. And I can’t wait to get out of here!” I paused and smiled. “The sea is calling to me…did you feel like that too?” Apparently I’d asked the wrong question though…she collapsed to the floor in front of me. Dad bent down to comfort her. “Have we lost her?” I heard her wail. I tried my best to sound positive. “Mom…Dad…don’t be upset. I’m not lost…I’m right here.” But my voice was drowned out by my mother’s sobs…
