May Flowers Monster 4
The young Splotchafish was afraid to swim the entire length of the pond until she befriended a trio of koi fish who reminded her of the nearby lotus flowers. They told her how the flowers had to grow through the mud and the muck at the bottom of the pond before having the strength and the will to surface at the top of the pond and share its beauty in full bloom. Learning from example, the Splotchafish decided it was time to discover the world beyond her tiny little corner of the pond.
