A Conversation between Elip and Elop

Glum as always, Elip sat weeping in a corner. Elop, her brother, approached her hesitantly. “Is anything wrong?” he asked.

She looked up at Elop, face wet, and said, “I can’t tell.”

He nodded his head. “It’s often very hard to tell.”

She thought about this, then responded, “Not really.”

“No, I know, I was just trying to say something.”

She began to smile. “I see.”
