Friday Fictioneers: Dolphins


The little boy was in love with dolphins. For him they were the most amazing creatures in the entire world.

In the holidays his parents took him to the Dolphinarium to watch a show featuring dolphins and sea lions. He watched the dolphins jump into the air and through hoops and he clapped as hard as he could. Towards the end of the show the show host called out seat numbers of those who had won the draw to get a chance to swim with the dolphins. He was one of them!

If only he knew how to swim.

    • He loves dolphins and all sea creatures even though he hasn’t yet learnt to swim. Maybe in a few years he’ll get another chance to swim with the dolphins.
      Thanks for reading.

  1. Dear Zainab,

    Ah…your last line made me ache with disappointment for the boy. One of my dreams is to swim with dolphins. Not in a contained tank, but in their own territory. Perhaps one day I will.
