A Dream in Venice

by Štěpán Zavřel


Marco is really excited.

How many wonders, how many beautiful things!

"But can't you do anything to save Venice?" he asks his friends who live under the sea.

"No, we can't do anything here any more, the children answer, but you, Marco, you who live up there, you have to tell people to come and help us, you have to tell people not to wait. We've been waiting for so long come and save!"

Marco is moved and promises he will help them. And the children give him a nice round vase with two small goldfish swimming at the bottom. Marco and the little mermaid go up slowly, the children and the fish follow them for a little while. Then Marco finds himself in his bedroom.

"Goodbye, goodbye!, says the little mermaid, one day we will meet again!.
