  • Every morning, Marius detaches her and pushes her to the sea. The bark always took him to places full of fish. Then Marius sang and the dolphins jumped around him to listen to him.
  • The dolphins loved Marius very much. And if the sea became too agitated, discreetly, they pushed his boat to help him navigate.
