While on holiday in Kenya and walking through the bush a man comes across an elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seems distressed so the man approaches very carefully. He gets down on one knee and inspects the bottom of the elephant’s foot only to find a large thorn deeply embedded. As carefully and as gently as he can he removes the thorn and the elephant gingerly puts its foot down. The elephant turns to face the man and with a rather stern look on its face, stares at him. For a good ten minutes the man stands frozen - thinking of nothing else but being trampled.

Eventually the elephant turns and walks away.

For years after, the man often remembers and ponders the events of that day. Years later the man is walking through the zoo with his son. As they approach the elephant enclosure, one of the elephants turns and walks over to where they are standing at the rail. It stares at him and the man can’t help wondering if this is the same elephant. The man climbs tentatively over the railing and makes his way into the enclosure. He walks right up to the elephant and stares back in wonder. Suddenly the elephant wraps its trunk around one of the man’s legs and swings him wildly back and forth along the railing, instantly killing him.

Probably not the same elephant then.

aesthetic: louis teasing harry because ‘how do you always know when someone is taking a picture of you? its quite scary, actually’, harry says something along the lines of “i cant help it that i have cat-like reflexes!”
louis thinks its hilarious, but later on he wants to see what harry looks like when he’s actually surprised.
a game begins.
louis tries to sneak up on harry and kiss him on the cheek. harry always knows when louis is coming, the little kid walks like an elephant. he smiles fondly and hugs him tight, and louis gets very angry because 'how do you do it??? how??? i was so quiet!!!’
louis jumps on him in the kitchen. louis jumps on him backstage on their wee break. louis jumps on him literally everywhere. harry always knows.
one day, harry is painting. he is thinking about his town, his childhood, his mum and his family, and how much he misses everything, how much he wishes he could have his home with him everywhere in the world. louis finally succeeds, jumping on harry’s back from behind and smacking a wet kiss on his cheek. he screams something like “VICTORY, AT LAST!” and can’t stop laughing at harry’s shocked expression.
harry smiles, watching louis’ unstoppable giggles, and realises that he has his home with him.

Hi! I'm also a book addicted, but currently I can't find new books. I like all kinds of books, but I think I'm looking for something romantic, a book that would make me cry perhaps. Can you help a fellow reader please?

Sorry for taking so long to answer! I feel so bad at giving recommendations, but a few books that come to mind are Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos, The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant, Thanks for the Memories by Cecilia Ahern, and Juliet by Anne Fortier. I hope one of those interests you! ♥️

lonerism is the best album Ever……..there are cute catchy pop songs like mind mischief and feels like we only go backwards…..and crazy epic existential songs like apocalypse dreams and nothing that has happened….sad angsty songs like why won’t they talk to me and sun’s coming up….straight up jams like elephant and music to walk home by……and everything flows and fits together so perfectly……i love lonerism so much punch me in the face
