For the first months of my life I have lived in the homely dorm of my girl, Ash, but with the summer holidays upon us we’ve returned to her parents, and for the first time in my life I’ve encountered a large mirror. I’ve never seen myself before… Look at my scales, they’re a happy colour, aren’t they?

I see flashes of myself in water or in windows, but it’s not the same as this. It’s odd, how my outside doesn’t exactly match how I see myself inside, or how I imagine I look to others.

I’m not disappointed, I mean look at me, I’m pretty cute! No wonder I get so many cuddles and treats! I wonder what I’ll look like next summer, and the summer after that, and then after that?
