Pichu heard the words but they didn't fully sink in. There had always been fish in the sea, so many fish you could run across their backs all the way up to the shore.

  1. Interesting snippet, Freda. Is he the son of a fishing family, I wonder? Or what words did his mother say? I may have to look into this one

  3. I'm curious now...thanks for this tempting excerpt.

It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions.
