The Li'le Merwhale
There once was a li.le merwhale named Arel. She lived in a castle deep under the sea. The walls were covered with precious stones, and ﬂoor was covered in a blanket of gli.ering sand.
She had everything a person could want, but she was lonely. Her father, a humpback whale, went on a migra@on every year to get some food for them to eat. She was leA alone with only a crab and a ﬂounder for company.
They were good friends, but she wanted to see what
was outside of the castle. But she wasn’t allowed to leave because two huge hammerhead sharks lived in a trench outside of the castle. These two sharks had eaten her mother when she was really young.
Because of those sharks, she wasn’t allowed to leave the castle. But one day, her curiosity overcame her, and she snuck out of the castle late at night. She stared in awe at the vast expanse of water beyond her, and started to explore the wonders of the sea.
But two large shadows driAed over her, and the hammer-‐heads were suddenly there. With one snap of its head, he knocked Arel unconscious, and she driAed to the ocean ﬂoor. Luckily, the crab and ﬂounder realized Arel was gone, and came in the knick of the @me to save her. They grabbed Arel, and quickly hauled her into the castle before the shark could eat them.
When Arel woke, she had no idea who where she was. She couldn’t even remember who the ﬂounder and the crab where. She had completely lost her memory. The crab and the ﬂounder did what whatever they could to bring her memory back, but it didn’t help at all. Because she couldn’t remember anything, she decided to leave the castle. She went to Antarc@ca and lived with the penguins for 9 years.
One day, a huge steel ship came. It was the newly made Titanic. On board was a prince. The prince was named Aladdin. He was sad because his former wife, Jasmine, had go.en eaten by her @ger Raja. Arel went up to Aladdin and started talking to him. They soon became very close friends.
Eventually the Titanic had to leave. The prince said good-‐bye to Arel and leA. But the Titanic hit an iceberg, and started to sink. Arel was able to save the prince, and dragged him to a ﬂoa@ng piece of ice. She kissed him, and brought him back to life.
When she kissed him, her tail-‐ﬁn disappeared. She had become human! But now she couldn’t swim, and they were stuck. Luckily, Dumbo was ﬂying overhead, and said he would ﬂy them to the castle.
When, they got to the castle, they decided to get married. Jamaal, Arel’s father, found Arel at the castle. With his permission, Arel and Aladdin got married. Arel bought a submarine, and visited her friends under the sea. Dumbo became the royal elephant. They all lived happily ever aAer.
