One day, the snail was walking through the forest when he saw a beautiful red ball. The ball was bigger than the snail, and he had never seen anything like it before.The snail was curious about the ball, so he went over to it and touched it. The ball felt soft and smooth, and the snail liked it very much. The snail decided that he wanted to take the ball home with him, so he picked it up and started to walk away. But as he walked, the ball started to roll away from him.The snail tried to run after the ball, but he was too slow. The ball rolled away faster and faster, and the snail could not keep up. The snail was very sad. He had lost the beautiful red ball, and he would never see it again.At night, the snail went to bed. He dreamed of the beautiful red ball, and he wished that he could have it back. The next morning, the snail woke up and went outside. He looked around, and he saw something strange.The beautiful red ball was sitting on his doorstep! The snail was so happy. He had found his beautiful red ball, and he was never going to let it go again.He looked at it every day, and he smiled. He was so happy to have his beautiful red ball back.
