My Kingdom for a Fish!

I went up to San Francisco today and visited Popo. I was very saddened to find out that she had planned to give the agate fish Goong Goong carved to his friend MK. Goong Goong won a prize for that fish and was very, very proud of it. I know it is selfish but I really wanted it to remember him by. But I am being greedy, because I am already going to get jade pieces from him that he carved for me - especially for me, and Kenny.
...but I still want the fish. Is there really a polite way to ask for it? I mean, if Popo did promise it to MK then there's nothing I can really do. I don't want to cause trouble for her; she's stressed enough as it is. But it seems to me like the fish is something that ought to be kept within the family, since in many ways it is the sum of Goong Goong's artistic vision. Also, MK just seems to have disappeared after Goong Goong's good-bye party, and Popo's annoyed about it, so I suspect that if I brought it up she would give me the fish.
Still, I don't want to cause trouble.
