My whole life I have been used to living with an animal. However, since I moved to México, I am only able to play or interact with their pets in the main living area. I am not a people person, and I love alone time. I enjoy the animals company but again alone. When there are other people, everyone is very needy in this house, they want constant attention and praise about how smart they are and I do not like engaging in these types of social situations. What bothers me is how angry people get when they see that I treat animals with respect, I talk to them, I hug and kiss them, I give them massages. Specifically the people I live with, see this as an insult to them.
So, two nights ago I had a very long dream about a red dragon and one of the subjects that came up was the fact that I needed a companion in my own living space. I could not bring the house's pets up to my room so I had to settle with finding myself a new friend.
On my usual walk, I passed a pet store and went inside and the first thing to catch my eye was these deep, maroon red, corona betta fish. All the other fish swam away or turned around, but this one did not. He stared me down as if to prove how strong he was.
I brought him home.
As I was thinking of a name for him, the wind blew various little, gold leaves into his tank and he started hoarding them. He appeared to me as a dragon protecting his gold and there was an advertisement for the Hobbit on a give-out pamphlet so I named him Smaug.
He is now joining me where I work/study/do anything so now I can freely talk to him throughout the day.
I would like to formally welcome Smaug to my family!
