So tiny and sweet

I was walking on a beach in San Francisco, this summer, when I met a girl chasing this poor tiny crab. He's as big as an Oreo biscuit. So, I saved the crab from certain death and he posed for me. I love the texture of his claws, of his whole body. He's tiny and perfect.

Have you heard of 浦島太郎? It was a turtle, though.

@: Hi 万, very nice story. And very similar to what happened to me. Now I just have to wait for the father of the tiny crab to come and bring me to his underwater world!
