Zephyrus: What’s wrong, little one? Maybe I can help?



Tragic Plum: Oh!... who are you? I… I don’t think I’ve seen you around before… WHAT are you?... ooooooh

Zephyrus: My name is Zephyrus, and I’m a centaur mostly – half boy, half horse.

Tragic Plum: Ooooh, you’re very fortunate the horse part is on the bottom instead of on the top aren’t you?... ooooh



Zephyrus: Very funny – and very true, little girl *chuckle* Hop up on my back, and we’ll take a little ride while we figure out how to fix your problem.

Tragic Plum: Ooooh, that’s kind of you… but it’s so high  off the ground… I’m a little… scared…



Zephyrus: Not to be scared – I’ll hold on to you, like this, ‘til you get used to it. See, you have a fine seat already! By the way, what is your  name – it’s only fair I know what to call my passenger.

Tragic Plum: I’m called… Tragic Plumooooh



Zephyrus: Well, Miss  Plum, I think we can help you out, so you won’t have to be SO tragic *smile*.

Tragic Plum: Ooooh, that would be kind… except I’m used to being tragic… I wouldn’t know any one was calling for ME if it didn’t include the tragic part… ooooh
