Aquarium Location 1955/Page 79
"I entered my room and sat on the bed, placing my pet in its new home. I tapped the glass, trying to get the creature to pay attention to me, but it seemed more content to stay buried amongst the roots.
'So what shall I call you, little dude? I'm not big on what's popular in aquatic names these days.'
Great, I thought. I'm actually talking to a fish."
