When suddenly another little turtle came out from the sea.
She was as small as the nail on your middle finger,
and she had a pretty pink shell.
Good evening, my King, she said.
Good evening, replied the king. Which one are you?
I am your great great granddaughter.
Can I rest here with you?
Yes, of course, said the king of the turtles,
but first you have to answer a riddle:
Why is the sea pink this evening?
Because… because the pink sunset is reflecting in it.
All right, it might be so, replied the king,
and made his great great granddaughter
sit beside him – next to the other little turtles.
