It was a boiling hot summer morning, I went to the beach and had a boat trip with my best friend “Magic Katie”. She graduated from a magic school. We put on the sunscreen and we started our journey.
When we rolled the boat to chase the dolphins, we saw something in the water.
“Dolphins with glasses? They are stunning?” I exclaimed
Suddenly, the boat flipped over and crashed into the sea.
Fortunately, the girl next to me was “Magic Katie”. She started to cast a spell.
Katie put the “magic diving helmet” on my head so that I could breathe under the water. We swam amongst the beautiful seaweed and the darting silver fish were leaping out of the water.
We decided to explore under the water. Then I spotted a stunning mermaid. We noticed that the mermaid wore glasses. “BUT, why does the mermaid wear glasses? This is weird,” said Katie.
We followed the mermaid and swam into a dark tunnel.
“Oh! Why are here so many tyres? Is it a tyre park under the water? I said.
“NO, the human abandoned the tyres here!” Mermaid said.
“Hey! Ms. Mermaid, why do you wear glasses? I asked. “Because I couldn’t see things clearly,” answered Mermaid.
Mermaid said, “Follow me. I will lead you to the Underwater Kingdom!”
We kept swimming further up and suddenly bumped into a shark. I started to panic.
I had almost given up hope until Katie held my hand and came to my rescue. “Don’t panic!” said Mermaid.
“Oh! Is it a shark with glasses?” I wondered.
“Yes, so that we all see clearly,” said Mermaid.
“Maybe the shark wants us to lead us somewhere?” I said.
When we swam deeper and deeper….. “Oh my goodness! It is the City of Mermaids (Underwater Kingdom)?” I gasped in surprise.
“But now in front of my eye is a city of plastic bags and plastic bottles!” said Katie disappointedly. “Yes, you’re right, Katie!” I said.
A little turtle near me and spoke loudly to the old turtle, “Grandpa, stop! That’s not a jellyfish. It’s a plastic bag. DON’T swallow it!”
Then I saw an underwater cave. I swam into the cave. The water was freezing and it was eerie. I saw some shells.
People always say that there are pearls inside shells. But now we only have Styrofoam.
“Wow, that is sad,” I signed.
“This is because of water pollution,” Mermaid said.
“ Why do people keep hurting the sea animals? We should do something to restore the ocean!” I suggested.
“Yes, I agreed. LET’s DO IT!” said Katie.
Katie spelled her magic word, “בואונעשאתזהנקי ברור, לאעודזיהום!”
In the blink of an eye, the ocean restored to her former beauty. Clear blue water was restored. All tyres and plastic bags were gone. No one needs to wear glasses anymore.
Katie and I were so happy to see that scenes and we started giggling.
At this meaningful moment, someone shook me and shouted, “Ellen!”
“Who is that?” I shouted.
“You fell down from the bed, honey. Are you OK?” asked mum.
Oh, it was just a dream.
One thing I realized from that dream is that “We need to protect our environment and the animals from pollution. SAVE the EARTH!” Just like Katie’s spell ~ “"Let's make it clean and clear, no more pollution!" (“בואו נעשה את זה נקי וברור, לא עוד זיהום!”).1 / 14
