It was a Sunday morning. Usually families in Russia try to relax that day, but not our character. His name is Sasha. He is a fifteen-year old boy. He has a cat which he loves very much.
He was alone at home and started to do the washing up. While the washing machine was working, he decided to put on his headphones and play his favourite computer game. He came back to reality when the cat jumped off the wardrobe.
Sasha heard strange gurgling sounds and went to the washing machine. There was something wrong with it and the water spilled like the sea; formed a circle. Sasha was scared and rushed to wipe up the water. It was all over the floor.
Suddenly, he heard the cat which was mewing from the kitchen. It was standing in the middle of the kitchen with three legs and shaking the fourth leg. Sasha decided to come up to the cat but there was a problem: his feet stuck to the floor, because it was sweet. Under the table there was a huge packet of sugar and it made a syrup with the water. Now it was all over the floor.
That was the sweetest sea ever!
