Trigorin’s Seagull


An idea for a short story. A young girl grows up on the shores of a lake, just like you. She loves the lake, as the gulls do, and is as happy and free as they are. But a man comes along, and having nothing better to do, destroys her, like this gull here has been destroyed.

Anton Chekhov
