The Fish of the Lakes

*takes a big swig of beer to moisten the throat and stands up*

Y will tell you a story about the Lakes.
A fish story, to be more accurate.

It must be said that fish of the Lakes are know to observe migrating homins. Predominantly floating homins. Occassionally homins on the back of mektoubs.
Oy, oy... the drunk as homins as well... But...

*takes another swig of beer*

...in brief, the fish are very familiar with us homins. So familiar that they have even spotted the shiny trees and bizarre outfits, which sprout into being from time to time.

One day, the fish decided that they too wanted to celebrate Atysmas. They began by put bits of red algae on their heads. They did not know why, but the yubos did it, so it had to be important. They also wanted to decorate a tree.

*drinks another sip and looks at the sudddenly empty bottle*
Well, geez... Has a lutrykin been here?
*stuffs the empty bottle into her bag and takes out a new*


The fish found shiny sea shells and they found garlands of seaweed. They even found strange things that homins had lost on the lakes bottom. But they did not find any tree.

*takes a sip from her bottle and coughs*
A Shooki Stout! I did not order a Shooki Stout!
*looks at the bottle with an evil face and takes a sip anyway*


The fish tried to decorate several large algae... but it was not the same and so the fish were very disappointed. In addition, they had also found a keg of beer and they were hoping to make a real Atysmas celebration like the homins... But without a tree...

*takes a big slurp out of the bottle*
This really is not bad, this stuff. It is not the beer, but ...
*gulps a bit more*


Y was saying?

Ah oy ... The fish were very disappointed. They gathered on the bottom of the lake near a town of the homins and looked gloomily at the Atysmas tree.

*finishes the bottle of Shooki Stout*
HUH?... Empty again?
*puts the empty bottle away and brings out a new one*
*checks the label, smiles and continues her story*


It was then that the Atysmas Spirit saw the poor fish, and he told himself that it would be unfair if the fish could not also enjoy the festivities. And so the Atysmas Spirit joined the fish unnoticed and said, "What if we took all our decorations into the depths of the place the homins call Dew Drops?" Then the Spirit of Atysmas disappeared.

*takes a sip of beer*
Aaaaaahhh ...


The fish looked at each other, wondering who had spoken. But in the end, as they had nothing better to do than continue to make their rounds in the water, they set out for Dew Drops. There they searched and searched and searched.

*drinks another swig of beer*

Eventually they found a tree. Although a tree cannot be found at the bottom of a lake normally, a tree was there. This tree is a tree that only the fish can decorate. When you travel to Dew Drops, perhaps you will see the tree. And if you really have good eyes and the time is right, maybe you'll see the fish celebrate around the tree.

*sits down*
*mumbles* And y really was not drunk that day...
