The koi aquarium in the small apartment was the cause of much strife between the young couple.
One day in a particularly foul mood he swept it on the ground. Broken glass and the bright fish sparkled in the flooded room.
He started cleaning and picked up the smaller koi and as he moved towards the trash can it said, “Brother, it is not your fault”.
Stunned, he searched for the source of the faint voice.
“Unfortunately we gave you these traits”
A sense of panic ……
“Do not be scared – my ancestors were your first Gods”.
Puffer fish and Zebra fish are so genetically similar to human beings that their genomes are being deciphered as ‘model’ organisms for research.
Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.
Happy Deepawali, friends.
