No Reason To Be Greedy
Sally decorated her caves with statues and vases that had fallen to the ocean floor from shipwrecks over the centuries. She loved her figurehead collection.
But ships didn’t have figureheads anymore and there were hardly any shipwrecks these days. To get something new, she had to shop for herself. Drifting up to the Mediterranean, she saw many interesting statues along the coast.
I’ll take just one this trip, she thought. No reason to be greedy. Sally the giant octopus surfaced and, extending two arms, delicately removed the statue from the top of the monument.
She didn’t even hear the screams.
