The prawns were constantly being harassed & threatened by sharks that patrolled the area.
Finally one day Justin said to Christian, "I'm bored & frustrated at being a prawn, I wish I was a shark, then I wouldn't have any worries about being eaten.
As Justin had his mind firmly on becoming a predator, a mysterious Cod appeared & says "Your wish is granted," & lo & behold, Justin turns into a shark.
Horrified, Christian immediately swims away, afraid of being eaten by his mate.
Time went on & Justin found himself becoming bored & lonely as a shark.
All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them. Justin didn't realise that his new appearance was the cause of his sad plight.
While swimming alone one day he sees the mysterious Cod again & can't believe his luck. Justin figures that the Cod could change him back into a prawn. He begs the Cod to change him back & in a flash he is turned back into a prawn.
With tears of joy in his tiny eyes, Justin swam back to his friends & bought them all a drink. Looking around the gathering at the reef, he searches for his old pal.
"Where's Christian"? he asks. "He's at home, distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy & became a shark," came the reply.
Eager to put things right again & end the mutual pain & torture, he sets off to find Christian's house.
As he opens the coral gate the memories come flooding back. He banged on the door & shouted, "It's me Justin, your old friend, come out & see me again".
Christian replied, "No way man, you'll eat me. You're a shark, the enemy & I'll not be tricked".
Justin cried back, "No I'm not, that was the old me. I've changed".
