“Well, mister, the way I’ve got it figured is somebody’s gotta catch him sometime or else the whole thing’s just a big myth…worse than that…a lie.”
“Whoa…wait a minute there partner. I didn’t say he wasn’t real, did I? I believe in him as much as the next fellow, but you’re an awfully small one to be taking on such a large task.”
Just then, the gentle babbling noises of the stream were drowned out by a volcanic eruption and out jumped the myth. Oh, it had to be him. Huge and shining like a rainbow for a brief instant, then disappearing like a gently-arched arrow of silvery flesh back into the depths from which he’d come.
For a moment, neither the young boy nor the old man said a word…they couldn’t. What they had just seen was proof of lore. The old fish…the old man…the one the old-timers called Hide. He was real. Now they understood. They no longer desired to catch him. Like the generations before them, they realized that seeking the myth was more important than holding and examining it. Hide was where he belonged and another pair who’d sought him could now pass on the lore and leave the seeking to those who did not yet believe.
