Once upon a time, deep below the Caribbean Sea, there was a young mer-cat named Serena. One day she was swimming along looking for shells when she saw a very strange shell. It was bright, bright pink and when she touched it it was as hot as the sun!
Suddenly, just when she touched the shell, a huge sea monster with one gigantic eye rose up from the depths and grabbed her!
She thought that she would NEVER get loose from the gigantic tentacle, but .........
A black paw reached out and slapped the tentacle! It hurt so much that the tentacle went down, down, down back into the depths... never to be seen again. The black paw turned out to be a very handsome boy mer-cat. Serena and the black cat fell in love and lived happily ever after.
