    The Day of the Turtle

    Lying uncomfortably on the desert-like beach I felt confused because I didn’t know where I was.  I was upset and distraught, I needed help so I could go back into the salty sea and have a normal life again. Strolling along the sand, a girl came up to me, I didn’t know what she was going to do.  All of a sudden she started stroking me under my chin, I felt loved, like I had a real family. When she saw the gulls had pecked at me she threw pebbles at the annoying gulls. I was very slowly dying but I felt reassured. I felt relaxed. Then she made a pillow and covered me up in seaweed, I felt trapped as I couldn’t move one bit. Eventually the seagulls came back, I cried so much there were no more tears to cry.
