Coral the Mermaid

Coral the Mermaid

Fish school was out for Summer, and the netball pitch was waterlogged...

Coral sat in her garden, throwing pebbles at the wall. Her next door neighbour, Sven the Shark, looked over the hedge. "Bored, Coral?" he said. Coral nodded glumly. Sven looked around to make sure no-one was listening before leaning in close. "Do you fancy going on a treasure hunt?" He whispered. Coral's eyes lit up. "Like, real treasure?"

Sven nodded. "Legend has it that a great treasure was lost out on the reef many years ago. I'd look for it myself, but I don't have hands like you," he said.

Coral thanked him for the information and immediately swam round to her friend Anemone's house.

"Anemone, come quick! There's hidden treasure on the reef!"

"Did Carl the Crab tell you that?" Anemone asked.

"No don't be silly, crabs can't talk," Coral said. "I spoke to Sven the Shark. He said that a really valuable treasure was lost down there ages ago."

"Well then what are we waiting for?" Anemone asked excitedly. The mermaids waved goodbye to their parents and set out on their adventure.

They searched high and low for any gold glints amongst the plants. They stopped to ask some of their sea creature friends if they'd seen any treasure around the reef. They all shook their heads. The two mermaid friends combed through all the weeds and rocks, and after a few hours searching, all they had found was a shoe, an old teddy bear and a snorkel.

"How did you girls get on?" asked Sven as the returned home.

"We haven't found much, Mr. Shark," said Anemone sadly. "We could try again tomorrow?"

Sven gasped. "You found it!" he exclaimed.

"We did?" said Coral, looking confused. Sven reached out for the old teddy bear in Coral's hand, and hugged it close to his chest.

"You found Mr. Snuggles!" he said happily. "I lost him when I was just a pup! Thank you so much for finding him!"

"You mean there's no real treasure?" Coral asked, disappointed.

"There's no greater treasure than cuddling your favourite stuffed toy at night," said Sven.

The girls would have been annoyed that they'd spent so long looking for an old teddy bear, but when they saw Sven's tears of joy, they knew it had all been worth it.
