Lydia was an adorable inquisitive child and an avid absorber of facts which played into her as-yet-undeveloped mind. She'd recently heard of flying fish making her giggle with delight watching videos of them flying through the air in the ocean. She also was most compassionate to the plight of humans, animals, and all species of the earth...at least that she had come across in her young life.
Her father, a fisherman, meant killing fish for food. But never had she seen such a large fish. The hook had been removed. She was distressed it was bleeding and still slightly moving. She lay down on the wharf, eye to eye with the fish. “Please, please,” she prayed silently. “Let this fish’s wings let him fly away. I don’t want him to hurt.”
Her father had no idea how the fish disappeared. His daughter twirled around the wharf happily.
