Unbelievable

“They said the Platypus was a fake.  Why wouldn’t they say the same about this… creature?”

I looked at Damian, looking at… It. I tried to be encouraging, in a gentle manner. “Come on, take a chance. This could be such a breakthrough, you know it!”

“But my reputation, I’ll risk everything!”

He wasn’t going to budge. I could just tell, from how he looked down his long nose, to the way he shuffled his hooves.

I sighed, too loudly. The furless, two-legged creature froze, then darted into the bush.

The ‘man’ as Damian called it, was going to be someone else’s discovery.
