Gloria the Tortoise

Gloria was leisurely strolling along and cleaning the beach of her home, the Galapagos Island when she suddenly stepped on a seashell. The seashell didn’t get mad, instead, the seashell granted Gloria magic powers which also turned her shell a beautiful bright pink! Gloria wanted to use her magic for good, so with the blink of an eye, she cleaned the beach in no time!
