Drabble: Save Yourself

Save Yourself

“Save the humans? Why in the seas would we do that?”

“I know I sound like a bleeding heart. I’ve no love for the things they’ve done – still do. But they’re on a road to self-destruction–”

“Let them at it!”

“You really think they’ll get there alone? Listen, some of them are trying. If we share our wisdom...”

“Or we could nudge them past the brink...”

“I hope for your sake the council didn’t hear that.”

A humpback spouts in the distance as I remove the headset. “What do you think they’re singing about?”

“Just noise, you ask me.”
