Now our friend and guardian Diamond is no longer here, we don't feel as safe. Today all sorts of large objects appeared near the pond and men were bringing out things and stamping near us. They even stared at us swimming around until we felt nervous and dived under our slate slabs. Dawn tried to keep us all calm, but we could see he was no longer in control. He dived to the bottom of the pond.
When the food bearer appeared she said she had lost our food. How can that be? She said she had to look for it and went off poking around various boxes. Eventually she came back, but we were all upset and kept diving around rapidly, swirling the water. We don't like changes.
She said something about 'necessary bathroom renovation' and 'water in the wall'. Surely that can't be bad. Water is a good home to us, so supple and kind. Perhaps she would be better off if she let more of it into her own home.
We hope we are not disrupted too often.
Diamond would never have let this happen.
Your sincere friend Princess Aurora, for the pond fishes.
(Dawn is feeling too upset to write, although he is trying to conceal that from us)
