Learning to Love
written by Karen's Troll (yes trolls can write!)
I had to write this down just so it would be believable, as I hardly believe it myself.
Sometimes we run into a situation where a human unknowingly sends a troll to someone who does not believe. This can be a very bad situation, especially for a troll pet (since most often the troll pet does not understand the human's language). And it has been known to happen that before they can get properly aquainted, a troll escapes this new habitat by jumping back in the box and being sent home.
For example, last year I recieved a package from Tennessee and, oh my, when I opened it I found a very scared little troll kitten. He was afraid to come out of the box. I went to the kitchen and took a few small pieces of food from Hobbes's dish (Hobbes is the cat who lives with the same human family as I do). Someone had left a cup of water in the kitchen so I scooped some out for him with my teacup.
At first he wouldn't eat, but he soon drank a little. While I petted him and scratched behind his ears, I told him stories of his troll ancestors and how brave they were. He finally ate a little bit.
At last he curled up under my long hair and went to sleep. I thought... tomorrow I'll teach him about humans.
In the morning I awoke to the sound of purring :)
This story was provided to us by Karen F. who lives in Ohio.
It was written by one of her trolls in the hope that it would teach humans a little more about trolls!
