Say Something

A Goldfish and A Frog

The warty frog and the prize goldfish met one summer afternoon in the temple pool.

“Don’t you realize how beautiful I am?” bubbled the goldfish flashing her wispy tail.

The frog made no reply.

“I can understand your silence,” gloated the goldfish.

“I am not only graceful in my movements but I also enhance the golden rays of the sun.”

Again, neither answer or movements from the frog.

“Say something,” demanded the goldfish just as a waiting crane speared the sparkling fish and flew into the sky.

“Bye bye,” croaked the frog.
