"I wouldn't mind if we were in a story", said Ann.
"Because people in stories don't go around all day looking for an old shell. Interesting things happen."


"Nothing really happen in a story". Said Ben.
"Stories are just words. And words are just letters.
And letters are just different kinds of marks."


Benvinguts infants i grans, un cop més, a la història traçada a la sorra, a aquella història que nosaltres més desitgem. 
Paraules escrites i personatges que apareixen.


                                                                             KING!      
Paraules i més paraules,
paraules esvaïdes per l'onada.
Fer i desfer l'aventura.
                                                                             FOREST
Enmig del mar, el bosc.
Muntanyes amunt, traç inacabat.
Exquisit.
La marea arriba just per fer desaparèixer castells, reis i boscos...

"I wonder if there was time", said Ann.

"Time for what?,", said Ben.

"For a happy ending", said Ann.

"The tide came in too soon", said Ben.

The last castle tower had vanished. 
They gazed out across the unbroken sea.
