A Boy and His Elephant

It seemed like they were made for each other, the boy and his elephant.

They ate, played, and slept together. They worked, lazed about, and made friends together.

They rode on each other’s backs and washed one another with their trunks.

They were almost indistinguishable, the elephant and his boy.
