Sebastian by Danielle / Danielle

Sebastian was a gift from a family friend. We thought he would look cute on the kitchen table with a big plant sticking out of his vase. He would swim in circles around the plant and stare at us as we ate our supper. He was such a simple animal to keep and never caused any trouble. I always joked about letting the cat eat him.

I never realized how much he meant to me until the day I found him motionless at the bottom of his vase. I emptied his vase and it still sits on the kitchen table with the plant in it and green rocks at the bottom. I know Sebastian is swimming around somewhere up in heaven happy as can be but I just wish he was down here in his little vase so I could sit and watch him like I used to.


All my love,
