From The Eel Cage by Orion D.

One day when I was swimming around in my cage a shadow filled my vision. A man’s hand grabbed the top of my cage and started to pull it out of the water a couple of inches. I looked around for my last glance of the world from my cage. I saw the purple marsh crabs eating the grass. I saw the great egrets black feet wiggling around. The man was still pulling. After a little while the man stopped.
He said “we will have to come back tomorrow to get it.”
The little man said ”OK, Leonard”

I swam around in happiness. I did not have to leave. I saw the animals again but this time not for the last time….
