An Elephant's Trunk: Chapter 4:A New Friend

Striper tells Emeraldtrunk “Happy Birthday,” and introduces the cub as his son, Fiercepaw. They show her around their home, and Fiercepaw and Emeraldtrunk make fast friends. Fiercepaw is very excitable, and likes to show off. He shows Emeraldtrunk many things about his home and admires her long trunk. “I wish I had a trunk,” he says. When it is time for Emeraldtrunk to leave, they are both disappointed. They hope to meet again soon. When Emeraldtrunk gets home, she asks her mother if they can visit Striper and Fiercepaw again soon. “Maybe,” says her mother. Then she kisses her daughter on the trunk and snuggles up with her for a nice, long, nap.
