1. Chapter 1

"Well. That's about it." The boy said.

I felt a bit coiled up after he had given me instructions. It's not every day a 6 year old lectures you on how to take care for an elephant. I nodded stiffly.

"Yeah, I think I can take it from here." I replied.

He gave me a glare like no other. I let my eyes drift to the side causally. He then turned around and walked back to the small house he had come out of.

I forced myself to look in the giant stall where the elephant stood silently. I had been assigned to watch over peacocks, llamas, parrots, a tortoise even. But this? I've never had to work on an elephant. The owners claimed he had been acting strange. Like he had eaten something weird. So they called me down to keep an eye on him and see if I have any sort of "diagnosis". I think it was a bit over-exaggerated, especially since it had been perfectly normal the hour I was there.

I honestly didn't know exactly what my job was. All I knew was that the elephant's name was Dorothy and that she was five years old. The owners weren't very specific as to what I was looking for exactly.
