Fishy Birthday Celebration

“Smile,” Cree said cheerfully to the three children standing in front of him.

“One military, one adult, and three youth please,” Cree said as the ticket lady greeted them cheerfully.

“Which one of you is the military?” She asked, looking both Cree and Crystal over carefully.

“I am,” Cree said, handing her his ID with a smile.

“Do you have a dependant ID?” The clerk asked Crystal.

After she showed hers, the clerk rang up two military tickets, two youth, and a birthday ticket. Then, all five of them walked through the glass doors into an extremely cool room.


“All right, Princess, what do you wanna do?” Crystal asked Liz.

“I dunno,” Liz said, looking around in awe for a moment. Then she saw something familiar from her last visit here, more than three years ago.

“Hey Matthew! Check this out!” Liz beckoned her younger brother to a small puddle painted on the ground.

As she stepped on it, the entire painting reacted to her touch. Liz gingerly stepped on a painted stone, and the ripples spread through the image. Then, once everyone realized what it did, they began running though it excitedly.

Filled with new confidence Liz began leading the party into the bowels of the aquarium to see what else they could find.
