As Polina wandered up the beach, the furry white cub heard a deep voice coming from the direction of the sea.
"Hellooo little bear," it said, welcoming her. Polina had never heard such a deep voice. She lifted her tired head to look out over the water, and was surprised that the voice seemed to come from a dark iceberg just offshore. No, wait! It had a huge eyeball that was looking directly at her. It wasn't an iceberg - it was the largest whale Polina had ever seen.
It was also the first whale that had ever spoken to her.
