Children's short story

 One day Grace was walking along the beach when she heard a strange noise, she looked around and saw the sound was coming from the ocean. It was a hurt dolphin; somebody speared the poor thing right in its fin. I'm going to find out who did this and they're going to get in deep trouble! Grace took it to her house, she showed it to her Mom and Dad, they said she could keep it till she got better. Grace put a bandage on the dolphin and then with the help of her parents placed her in a saltwater tank. Grace is sitting by the tank looking at this sweet hurt dolphin and says, “you such a doll, that’s it I’ll name you Dolly!”
 
Grace took Dolly to Dr. James who happened to a marine biologist at the Pelican Point Marine Center and he told me she give her special treatment and keep her for a few weeks until she got her strength back, Dolly looked sad when I had to leave, and Grace felt sad too, she is going miss her very much. Dr. James walked up to Grace and offered her a job to help take care of Dolly and Grace accepted right on the spot. After a few nights Grace couldn’t sleep because she was always thinking about her sweet Dolly and how she could be needing Grace and how lonesome she would be, Grace snuck off to the marine center to see Dolly to take care of her and feed her and later train her, when she was better,
 
I taught her to come me when I rang a bell. Dr. James and his team colleagues brought Dolly back to Grace’s house when she was healed, and while Dolly and Grace were at home, she taught Dolly some new and jumping around poor Dolly jumped against the tank and hurt her fin again. Grace called Dr. James and told him what happened, and he came right away, he told me she would have to go back to the marine center since she was hurt. He took Dolly back, he kept her for another few weeks and then took her another place where they specializes in dolphins.
 
The special marine doctors told Grace that they would take good care of Dolly and they said after her treatment they would release her back into the ocean, it would a very sad day for Grace and she would be losing her best friend, but she knew it was for the best. Then the day came when Dolly got better, and they let Grace say goodbye to her, Dr. James gave Grace the same bell she used to train Dolly with, and he told Grace anytime she felt lonely or needed help to ring the bell and Dolly would come swimming back to me. Grace knew Dolly would never forget her and she would never forget Dolly. With a tear streaming down her face she stood in the waves and said goodbye to her best friend.
