I've always been fascinated by sperm whales, and now I'll be able to see one in an aquarium! However, this sperm whale appears to be depressed. Dad assured me that it would remain in the aquarium indefinitely, never meeting its families. How should I proceed? Let's steal it and return it to the sea! 
We communicated the news to dolphins, killer whales, and blue whales with the assistance of marine biologists. Finally, the sperm whale's mother heard the news and arrived with waves and wind to save the sperm whale in the aquarium. I saw whales flying through the sky that night.
