This is a school project about adventure stories. The elephant orphanage mentioned is the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust's orphanage, found by Daphne Sheldrick.


1. The Beginning

   Ouch! I had hit my head. I stumbled to my feet and resumed my dash. "Come on Nova, a little farther, keep going!" I told myself.

   In case you're wondering, I had a herd of stampeding elephants at my back. You haven't really lived until you run for your life.

   I woke up staring at the sky. It was morning in Kenya; beautiful. Then I felt a cool shower of water on my head. "Well, that's nice," I thought. As I looked through the spray, I saw ..., saw ..., yikes! I was surrounded by elephants! They were assembled in a ring around me. I scrambled up, but the nearest giant's truck swept me back towards its feet. Then, something wierd happened. I heard the elephant. With my mind, with my ears, with my heart.

   "Welcome Nova Speaker. We have waited for you." Her voice (the large elephant's) was magnificent, it held the rumble of the Earth.

"I don't understand... what's going on?" I stuttered.

"We have waited long for you, Little One," her voice held no anger,"You must listen."
