Hello little girl, you were so kind to me. While everybody tries to avoid me, you still come to me. I will tell you my story, would you like to hear?” asked the sad old elephant. “Of course, I would like to hear your story, please tell me,” the little girl grew curious to know more about him.
“Once upon a time, I was a young and charming elephant in the circus. I am in this circus, ever since I was a kid. I learned a lot of tricks from the master trainer. Some of those tricks were hard to master, so I had a hard time with the trainer. But the training made me very smart. After each performance, I got a lot of endless applause. I was a great performer, nobody was there to beat me in my performance.
You see those young elephants standing there? They are my students. I feel so proud of them. I taught them when they were still new to the circus, the tricks I took years to master. Now the circus management wants to get rid of me as I am now old and have become a burden. Today, we all are leaving this place to a new place. I don’t know when we will meet again,” said the elephant with tears in his eyes. The little girl also cried went home say thinking about the poor old elephant.
