Sea Shell Wishes
Once there was a little girl named Shelby. Shelby loved to go and play at the
beach. She liked the sound of the waves and the birds. One of Shelby's favorite
things to do was collecting seashells from the beach. Every day after school
Shelby would go and find the most wonderful shell on the beach.
One day when Shelby came home from school, she went down to the beach to
collect seashells. Shortly after she started looking for shells she heard the
strangest sound. The sound was a high-pitched voice, and it sounded like it said
"Shelby" said the sound again. She looked around and she found a shell made
out of gold. She picked it up and took it to her house.
When she got to her house, she studied the shell. Then she put the shell to
her ear. The shell said "Hey Shelby can I be your friend?" Shelby dropped the
shell. "OUCH" said the shell. "What are you?" asked Shelby. "Why I'm a magic
shell," replied the shell. Shelby asked, "What do you do?" "Well, when someone
picks me up I grant them three wishes," said the shell. "Cool" said Shelby. "Can
I have my three wishes now" asked Shelby. "Sure" said the shell, "but make sure
you put me back at the beach after your three wishes, or I will take them all
away." "OK" said Shelby.
Shelby thought for a minute then said, "For my first wish I would like a pony
please." "One pony coming up" said the shell. A pony appeared outside in her
front yard. "WOW" said Shelby and she continued with her second wish, which was
to have the most wonderful seashells in the world. "No problem" replied the
seashell. Suddenly jars and jars of seashells appeared on her shelf. "Thank you
very much," said Shelby. "You have one wish left," said the seashell. "OK" said
Shelby. "For my last wish, I wish that I had a new basket that I could put
seashells in." Suddenly a colossal basket appeared on her bed.
"Thank you for all my wishes" said Shelby. "You are welcome," replied the
seashell. "Now can you take me back to the beach?" "Sure" said Shelby. When
Shelby put the seashell under the sand she told him that she would miss him. He
would miss Shelby also and till this day that shell is sitting there under the
sand waiting for someone to pick him up and take him home.
