The Balloon Story

ETHAN
I think I was about six years old, might have been seven. I caught this frog in this stream in the back of my house. It was like the best friend I ever had at the time...but anyway, this girl at school was having a birthday party and my dad made me go to it.I brought the frog cause I was afraid dad would throw him away.

So those kids at the day care came up to me and started to make fun of my stutter. There was a bunch of balloons outside on a table. Those kids came up to me and asked if they could hold my frog. I wasn't gonna let them but some kid grabbed him from me and kind of ran away to his other friends. Some big kid held me back as I watched them tie my frogs leg to three of the balloons. I watched him go way up into the sky. I didn't even do anything about it.

As I got older, I started to wonder where he ended up. I've wondered my entire life if he lived or not. I concluded a few years ago that he didn't, and was certainly dead by now. The cool thing is though, that he got to see something that no other frogs get to really see in their entire lives, even if it was just for a little while.
