He looked at his watch and saw that he had only a few hours left as a human. He wondered what else he could see and do. He smiled and said to himself, “This is the best day of my life.” He decided to visit the city and see the sights. He parked his van and walked around. He saw skyscrapers, museums, parks, and shops. He felt a sense of wonder and excitement. He stopped at a café and ordered a coffee. He sat down and looked at the people passing by. He saw a woman with long blonde hair and blue eyes. She was wearing a red dress and a pearl necklace. She looked at him and smiled. He felt a strange feeling in his chest. He smiled back and waved at her. She walked towards him and said, “Hi, I’m Alice. What’s your name?”
He said, “I’m Jeffery. Nice to meet you.”
She said, “You have a lovely smile. Do you mind if I join you?”
He said, “Not at all. Please, have a seat.”
They started talking and found out that they had a lot in common. They both loved the ocean, animals, and music. They laughed and joked and flirted. They felt a connection and a spark. They exchanged phone numbers and agreed to see each other again. They hugged and kissed and said goodbye. Jeffery walked back to his van and felt a surge of happiness. He said to himself, “This is the best day of my life. And it’s about to get even better.”
He drove back to the beach and returned the magic pearl to the sea. He thanked the pearl for granting his wish and said, “I had a wonderful time as a human, but I’m ready to go back to being a crab. I’ll miss my friends and Alice, but I’ll always remember them.”
He threw the pearl into the water and waited for the transformation to happen. He closed his eyes and felt a tingling sensation. He opened his eyes and looked at his hands. They were still human hands. He looked at his body. It was still a human body. He looked at his watch. It was past midnight. He was supposed to be a crab again. He said, “What’s going on? Why am I still a human?”
He heard a voice in his head. It was the pearl. It said, “Jeffery, you have been chosen. You have shown kindness, generosity, and courage. You have made friends and found love. You have lived your dream and fulfilled your destiny. You have earned the right to be a human forever. Congratulations, Jeffery. You are a human now and always.”
Jeffery was stunned and speechless. He couldn’t believe what he heard. He was a human forever. He said, “Thank you, pearl. Thank you so much. This is the best day of my life. And it’s the first day of my new life.”
He got into his van and drove away. He called Alice and told her the good news. She was overjoyed and said, “That’s amazing, Jeffery. I’m so happy for you. I can’t wait to see you again. I love you, Jeffery.”
He said, “I love you too, Alice. See you soon.”
He hung up and smiled. He said to himself, “This is the best day of my life. And it’s the beginning of a wonderful adventure.” he met a vicar on his boat and said to him
