There once was a seagull, an ordinary everyday seagull who spent his days soaring over the glittering water surface, looking for fish to hunt...
When he was younger, he had discovered that fish are the shallowest creatures on the face of the earth, and they barely had a brain...
As Nazi as it might seem, but that was the only reason why the seagull hunted and ate the fish... they were a waste of space...
One day, as the seagull was flying over the sea, he saw a glittering fish swimming underneath...
he prepared himself, and headed towards it, took it in his beak preparing to eat it, and it was then that he heard a choking sound that said: I'm not afraid of dying, what could death bring me that I haven't faced already?

The gull was shocked...
He never imagined hearing a philosophical statement from a “shallow fish”...
He then flew to a very faraway spot, placed the philosopher fish in a hole filled with salty water, and looked at it...
He looked again...
Rubbed his eyes and looked again...
The fish shined a bit more than any other fish he had ever seen...
It surely was different...
Most probably that fish was a chosen one...
A prophet, seer...
A revelator...
A philosopher...
Most probably, this fish had a lot of knowledge, a lot of ideas and a lot of teachings...
Most probably, that fish was going to be someone really great once older...
And the gull closed his eyes and started drifting in his ideas...
I'm sure that fish has gone through a lot, has endured love, pain and goodbyes...
I'm sure that fish doesn't eat disgusting earthworms like other fish do...
I'm sure that fish is a vegetarian...
I'm sure that fish barely has other friend fish...
Because I'm sure that fish is so deep it could not deal with the shallowness and stupidity of the other fish...
I'm sure that fish is a loner...
I'm sure that fish is something great...
He kept thinking, analyzing and over analyzing, and in a few minutes, he was sure that this fish was really one of a kind, something so wonderful and so worth it...
Then, the seagull opened his eyes and got flabbergasted as he looked closer…
The fish had seagull wings, small ones, but they were seagull wings alright…
He looked again, and he thought he was going insane…
The fish had a seagull’s beak, a seagull’s eyes and feathers…
Wait wait wait, the fish wasn’t a fish anymore…
The fish had turned into a seagull…
The seagull looked at the other gull that once was a fish and said:
- Who are you?
- Duh, I’m a fish, who are you?
- I’m a seagull…
- Yeah ok, got any worms?
- Worms? What for?
- To eat…
- You eat worms?
- You betcha I do…
- But, but, but…
- Butt? Where? What? How? Me likey, me want… yummy yummy me shagg butt…
- But, I thought you were different… I thought you weren’t like the other fish… I thought you looked more like a seagull…
- Huh? What? Yeah sure I am… what was the question again?
- But I heard you saying something very philosophical when I was about to eat you!
- You were about to eat me? When?
- When I took you out from the sea!
- Got any worms?
- Did you or did you not say: “I’m not afraid of dying, what could death bring me that I haven’t faced already?” when I was about to eat you?
- Dying? Death? Seriously! What the fuck! Got any worms?
The seagull was astonished…
he rubbed his eyes again trying to see if he’s in a dream or what…
And when he opened them back, he looked again, and saw that the fish was a less than normal one, and he realized that the words of wisdom he heard, were only chaotic sounds made by the fish and that the gull interpreted in his own way…
The gull laughed at himself, he laughed so hard for even THINKING that this fish could be different in a way or another, smiled again, opened his beak, grabbed the fish and ate it…

The Very End...
Stupid SeaGull :)
