Golden leaves glided across the gurgling stream. Tickling through a riverbed of blue and purple pebbles, it sucked gently on the grassy turf at its shore. One leaf drifted close to the grass; a tiny claw snap it up by its stem. Snipping it vigorously, the blue luminous crab decided it would do. It’s color would hide her nest and its crinkly, papery body would not dissolve as quickly in water. Yes, the crab nodded. It was perfect.
