Shakespeare was lonely. He longed for a friend. He decided he would get a goldfish! So one sunny summer’s day, he went out to get one from the local petshop. But, when he arrived, there were no goldfish left! He thought someone had stolen them, so he went to the riverbank and got a goldfish from there instead. He looked in his pocket and happily found a jar, he popped the fish with some water into the jar and went home. Shakespeare felt elated, he named his fish Ariel who inspired him to write his next play called The Tempest!
