Many moons ago, a girl, who was called Polly, lived near the beach. She collected flat shells, curved shells and thin shells. She had a strange, little cottage, which was glistening in the sun. One day (near dawn), Polly went for a walk with a rusty bike to collect shells. Suddenly, Polly found the most beautiful shell she had ever seen. Slowly, Polly bent down to pick up the shell, but, to her amazement, the shell spoke! “I will grant you two wishes so choose wisely!” said the magnificent shell.
