Drabble: The Jellyfish


The jellyfish floated lazily among the multicoloured rocks.

She stared.

When she bought the fish tank three months ago, she remembered buying a few different species of fishes, many decorations for the tank, and a few gadgets that were supposed to keep her fishes alive.

So where did the jellyfish come from?

When asked, her family hadn’t even noticed the jellyfish until she pointed it out, and her friends didn’t even know she had a fish tank.

“How did you get here?” She poked the glass that separated her from the jellyfish.

In answer, the jellyfish floated through the glass and wrapped its stinger around her fingers. Gently, the jellyfish pulled. She followed it, saying nothing even as they stepped through the mirror in her room.
