“Now, everyone,” Miss Hughes, said to her class. “Today, I’d like you all to draw a picture of your favourite animal.”

That was easy; while her friends tried to decide what their favourite animal was, Meriel picked up a bright green crayon and got straight down to drawing.

Miss Hughes wandered among the desks, commenting on each child’s work. “That’s a very fierce looking shark, Evan. Lovely rabbit, Emily. Is this a picture of your new puppy, Robert? What’s his name?”

Finally she reached Meriel’s desk and studied the picture the little girl was drawing with such care. It looked like a green, spiky sausage. “What’s this, Meriel? Is it a snake? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one quite like it.” Even after years of teaching first-graders, it was the best guess she could make.

“Sort of.” Meriel frowned, chewing her bottom lip as she suddenly remembered she wasn’t supposed to tell people about her special friend. Then she shrugged. “I like snakes a lot, but they’re a bit boring to draw so I gave it fur.”

“Well it’s beautiful dear. I’m sure more people would like snakes if they were fluffy.”

Meriel nodded. Who wouldn’t love a Fluff?

The End
