One morning, Malin’s wife asked him to go vacation. So Malin prepared his big luxurious ship and everything to sail.
However , in the middle of his voyage a big storm blocaded their ship, therefore the ship had to board in the closest island. You know audience it was the island where Malin was born.
Many people came to see a big luxurious ship including malin’s mother. They saw Malin in that ship, they cried” Malin comes, Malin comes.” Malin’s mother heard that. She shocked and wept happily.
