“How is your research coming along?” asked Baby Face Monster on a cool autumn morning.
“Baby Face,” smiled Ellie. “It is coming along very well. I am hoping to have an answer for you concerning your heritage before Thanksgiving.”
“What is Thanksgiving?” asked Baby Face.
“Thanksgiving is a holiday in Canada that we reflect and give thanks to the things that are important to us,” explained Ellie.
“I like that idea,” said Baby Face.
“What are you thankful for?” asked Ellie.
“I am thankful for you and also the research that you have been doing,” said Baby Face. “I have lived my whole life knowing that I am different and now, I am going to find out who I really am.”
“I am thankful to have found you,” said Ellie. “I am thankful to be able to continue the research my father was working on before he died. I am also very thankful for the friendship that you and I share.”
“As am I,” said Baby Face.
Baby Face went over to Ellie and gave her a kiss.
“Thank you,” said Ellie and then something in her research papers caught her eye. “Oh my!”
“What?” asked Baby Face.
“I can say without a doubt that my suspicion that you come from the sea is absolutely correct,” said Ellie, with excitement in her voice.
“So,” said Baby Face, just as excited. “I am half fish half human.”
“That is correct,” said Ellie.
“It is such a relief to me,” said Baby Face. “To finally know my heritage.”
“Yes,” said Ellie. “I can imagine it is.”
“Ellie,” said Baby Face. “I have wanted to say this to you for a long time now. I love you.”
“I love you as well,” said Ellie, giving Baby Face a big hug.
