The Sea Is Blue

Mum called me for breakfast, but I was still in my room. I was feeling a little blue. I had been feeling sad for a while now. I don’t know why? I snuck out of my window to take a walk along the beach. Luckily we live across from the sea. No one was there that morning, then out of the corner of my eye I see this beautiful blue whale doing the coolest belly flop. Wow, I thought that was awesome. Was he trying to get my attention? I started to feel a little better. Then the whale began to get closer to me. He came all the way up to me. He looked sad too. Could he have been feeling blue too?
I started talking to him. I felt he understood every word I was saying. I then realised I could understand his singing. It was his way of talking to me. We had a bond. Every day I would go to the beach to visit him so we could chat. I don’t know how it happened but for some reason I started calling him Blue. Mainly because of his shiny blue skin. He was my blue in the sea.
