So they sat together under the blue sky,
and all of a sudden another little turtle
came out the sea.
She was as small as the nail on your ring finger,
and she had a pretty brown shell.
Good afternoon, my King, she said.
Good afternoon, replied the king.
Which one are you?
I am your great great great granddaughter.
May I sit here with you?
Yes, of course, said the king of the turtles.
But first you have to answer a riddle:
Why is the sea golden this noon?
Because… because the golden sun is reflecting in it.
All right, it might be so, replied the king,
and made his great great great granddaughter
sit beside him, next to the smallest one.
And so they sat there until the evening came.
