The Magic Medicine

One day I woke up in my castle and I feltill and my throat was hurting and I was coughing. But my medicine was gone so I went to my doctor. The crazy thing was that my doctor told me to talk to this crab and the crab was blue and it had a deep voice and he said, “Go to this magic island. Be aware of a magic snake and it will be red with a small voice,” and I went and the snake told me that it is dangerous down there, so I still went and guess what it was? Not dangerous. It was fun looking for the medicine and guess what? I found it!!!
