An Eternal Friend
It’s amazing how much a goldfish can mean to a little girl.
A goldfish can be a nuance to an adult who has to look after it but to a little girl it can be a friend, a confidante, a good listener, despite having no ears. My daughter named hers “James” and she loves him.
That is the reason why I’m going to the effort to replace James in the middle night, I found the original James dead this morning whilst doing my chores.
I hope to God that Olivia doesn’t wake up.
