Default Scamander Zoo


Established in February of 2016, Scamander Zoo ironically can be found in a small, run-down opera house across from the London Zoo that non-wizard folk have a habit of overlooking, though this is a mere façade to keep things Muggle Worthy. Once a ticket has been purchased at the reception desk inside the central hall of the opera house, a grandoise staircase leads the way to a set of golden double doors.

Crossing the threshold causes everything to transform and takes the visitor to the zoo's lobby where various fountain beasts await. Free maps of the zoo, creature pamphlets, and fliers can be picked up here. To the left is the gift shop, and the bustling food court is to the right. Moving forward is the Childrens' Playground, which is decorated to resemble a classic playground accompanied with a Hogwarts-esque tree fort and a variety of kid-friendly creatures roaming around such as the Flobberworm, Crup, Kneazle, Puffskein, Niffler, and Demiguise.

The zoo beyond, however, definitely has a wide range of beasts -- from the mundane to extremely violent, the common and unfamiliar. You are sure to get your fill of magical creatures by visiting all of the different enclosures: African Safari, Aquatic Reef, Bird Nest, Gnome Garden, Grecian Parthenon, Horse Paddocks, Insect and Pest Dwelling, Mooncalf Field, Reptile and Amphibian House, Spider Web, Troll Enclosure, and the Westward Expansion.

OOC: Feel free to utilize this spreadsheet as a reference for all of the creatures present at the zoo that your characters may be seeing on their visit. If you have a character that is already employed or wants to work at the zoo, you may add them to the list and role-play them here.

Dahlia was one for making good on promises. Which is exactly what she was doing today, as she stood at the entrance of Scamander Zoo alongside her older sister Hady. Hady was the reason she was now bouncing on toes with excitement, holding onto tickets that would get her and her friend into all of the areas of the zoo.

These plans had been set in motion months and months ago. Evan probably didn't know that but it was true. That same day that they had been talking about possibly visiting the zoo together over the summer, she had mirrored her sister. Having such a large family with such a wide range of careers was epic. Especially the ones that fostered her passions as well.

Excited blue eyes looked around for her friend Evan, her long hair falling into her eyes as she nodded her head at her sister who had said she needed to get to work. "I'll be just fine. He should be here any minute."

This was a day he'd been looking forward to for quite a while, ever since they'd made the tentative plans back before Christmas break had started. It was a wonder that having known now about the wizarding world for 3 years that he hadn't made it priority to go to the zoo, but thanks to Dahlia this was changing today! He was genuinely excited, and as such had a fair amount of nervous energy which had managed to make him nearly late with trying to distract himself all day.

Racing through the crowd after his parents had dropped him off, having just convinced them that he was not in any danger today and would not be needing one of the family security detail for the day. Seeing her, he gave a wave before coming to a stop in front of her and leaning over to catch his breath for a minute. "Hi. I am.. so ... sorry I'm ... late."

Pardon the panting. He usually tried to always be more presentable, but considering he'd already unloaded most of his baggage over the term to her in their talks and hang outs, if she didn't already not enjoy hanging out with him based on that, he imagined she wouldn't care about this.

Besides. He hadn't wanted to make her wait any longer.

Standing up and straightening his shirt, Ev smiled. "Thank you again. I'm really excited about today!"

Being the active person that Lia normally was or had been at one time? Whatever, really. Now her level of hyper activity really depended on the day, mood and the situation. Right now she was attempting to dial things back, simply bouncing on the balls of her feet and humming under her breath as she kept an eye out for any signs of Evan. Which wasn't the easiest task when she kinda short and the crowd of people began to grow.

Luckily for her, Evan didn't seem to have issues locating her. She spotted him as he drew closer making his towards her through the crowd. Raising her hand she waved back at him to show that she saw him too. "Hi! I'm glad you made it!" Lia shook her head of long light brown hair, sending it flying all around her face. "You're not late at all. I've barely been here a few minutes." So there were no worries to be had.

She stood there with the brightest smile on his face despite his panting self just a few feet from her. He could take as long as he need to calm his breathing and compose himself, she was in no rush.. as long as he didn't take AGES.

"You're welcome! You're going to love it here! I already have our tickets and we can start anywhere you like." There was tons to see and do and they had alllllllll day.

The end of term and this summer had thus far blessed him with a bit of a growth spurt, which had made it possible for him to easily locate her. Sure he still wasn't close to Margaret's height, and who knew if he'd even keep growing, but at least crowd's were a little bit easier to navigate now and find people were he separated from them. Evan took a couple of deep, calming breaths before pulling himself to full height.

"Oh, thank goodness!" Good, she had not been waiting long. So at least he could wipe that worry away and not think about it for the rest of the day. And now that he'd taken those deep breaths, his face might have still been flushed but he at least wasn't looking as out of shape and could proceed with their exploration.

He was trying to not notice the bright smile, though he knew he was also matching it and bouncing a bit now too since no longer doubled over. "I have no doubt I will!" But in terms of starting wherever he wanted to? He had zero ideas what to actually expect, so instead he offered, "How about we start at your favorite exhibit and work our way from there?" Normal zoos usually had a loop or route that was fairly easy to see. So hopefully Scamander's wasn't going to be too different. "Shall we?"

The boy needed to stop worrying where she was concerned. Waiting a couple of minutes wasn't all that big of a deal. There was far worse things that could've taken place and they both knew that. Thankfully nothing like that was the case and all was well.

Lia noticed rather quickly that smile on Evan's face and the way that he was kinda bouncing a little in the same way that she was now that he was breathing normally again. It made her giggle just a little and smile all the more. Happiness really could be contagious and it was a wonderful thing! Now she had been expecting him to respond with something, anything but of course he would answer the way he had. It was Evan. "My favorite? This is supposed to be your trip." Cue more laughter.

"If that's really what you want to do though, we can do that. I hope you're ready for a long day filled with lots of fun!" With that, Lia held out a wrist band. "Our tickets. It's easier to wear them an a cute little keepsake. My sister got them ahead of time. So are we ready?" Heads inside so they can show the receptionist their tickets and head to the staircase and go inside!

Heads inside so they can show the receptionist their tickets and head to the staircase and go inside!


A problem he was experiencing was that he couldn't stop worrying when it concerned her. It was a problem, something he was working on. Day's like today probably did not help, but he found he was still powerless to have bowed out of it when he'd been so looking forward to the event. But it was fine, all was fine. They'd have a ton of fun today, and he'd continue opening up to more people and making more friends and then maybe it would be easier to stop worrying.

That was the plan.

But it would start tomorrow.

The laughter made the smile remain, and he gave a small shrug of his shoulders. He was interested in what her favorite part of the zoo was though! And it seemed the best starting point, both from out of his own interest and efficiency. "It's our trip, and I don't know the zoo well enough to have a place picked to start. So starting at your favorite where you're probably most familiar and working through the most well known parts of the zoo first seems efficient!" He'd keep the other reasonings to himself.

So yes though, that was what he wanted to do. "I'm absolutely ready for that." He accepted the wristband, securing it around his wrist. "What do I owe your sister?" Because he certainly didn't want her to be out anything for them getting to do this. At the question of were they ready, he nodded his head and flashed a thumbs up. "Let's go!"

In all honesty, she was as much a worrier as he probably was. Maybe even more so. Oddly enough, that hadn't always been the case but it was now even if she was trying to change that. There were days and certain situations that made the worrying within her escalate but today wasn't one of those days.

Hopefully.

All Lia wanted to do was have a good time and see all of the creatures. That was the plan and she was sticking to it. Evan's interest in knowing what her favorite area of the zoo was came as no real surprise to her buuuuut the thing was, she enjoyed the entire place. All of it. Yup, that was a very normal Dahlia response but it was true. "Okay, okay, it is our trip but I'm a creature person. There's not really an area here that I DON'T like. But there is one spot that I guess I'm a bit more partial to.." she looked over at him and smiled brightly. Not hints were going to be given. He would just have to wait and see.

Good, very good. As long as he knew what he was getting into. Lia waved a hand at him, quickly dismissing his question. "Nothing. You're my guest, remember?" If anything she owned her sister, not him. That's how invitations worked. Unless it was to somewhere super crazy expansive but that was an entirely different story.

"Lets do this!" Laughing, Lia dashed off up the grand staircase and through the large golden doors. Once on the other side where several large fountains shaped as beasts stood, she collected a park map, creature pamphlets and various other fliers. "Here, you can take a look at there. The map and pamphlets are really great and if you spot an area you want to go to just let me know." Bounces on her heels for a few moments giving him time to look around. "The gift shop and food area is right here.." Points those out quickly. "I normally don't eat right away but we can if you want to.. and I check out the gift shop later on. If you're ready we go head to the Children's Playground." Trying to keep her cool right now and not let on that this is probably her favorite spot to go to.

He would have bet his galleons she was more so. Merely for the fact she had so many more people to worry about than he did. Lia obviously had a big heart, something he admired about her. But with a big heart, seemed to come it's own set of problems regarding just how much one cared about everyone around them. It actually looked kind of exhausting, though she certainly did it all well.

Evan would have been fully on board with her plan, actually he WAS considering that was really all he wanted out of the day as well. He laughed as she explained she was a creature person, knowing full well that was in fact the case, before raising an eyebrow in interest when she said there was somewhere she preferred partially over the others. "Where is it?" Though he didn't really need to ask since they'd be heading that way soon enough. "I can be your guest and still pay my own way!" He definitely did not expect her or her sister to front his part of the bill, that would have been rude of him as well.

Once she dashed off, he stretched his legs to follow quickly after her, taking stairs two at a time towards the top. He then followed her over towards the resource center, where she was grabbing flyers and brochures and he just momentarily watched. Then she was offering everything to him and he accepted it, glancing over the papers, taking particular notice of the map. There was... a lot he wanted to see. Actually, he wanted to see all of it. Which meant they were in for quite the long day, he was certain. "Food later, and gift shop last seems good to me?" He didn't want to carry purchases around everywhere. Hearing her say next stop would be the playground, eyebrow arched again though smile remained. "Okay, well lead the way!"

Which meant they were in for quite the long day, he was certain. "Food later, and gift shop last seems good to me?" He didn't want to carry purchases around everywhere. Hearing her say next stop would be the playground, eyebrow arched again though smile remained. "Okay, well lead the way!"
Dahlia wasn't going to give anything away. Just like she wasn't going to allow him to pay his own way today either. "Evan, it's not necessary. Honest. It's all been taken care of." There was nothing at all rude about it when she had invited him and her sister had gotten the tickets for them. If it really meant that much to him, he would have to find some other way to pay her back.

Perhaps she could've walked up that stairs with him but sometimes running ahead was more exciting. Plus she had a feeling he could catch up quickly enough. Lia nodded along, a smile on her face as he seemed to agree with what she had said. "Sounds like a plan to me." Honestly she never really understood why people would want to eat right away and than do a whole ton of walking. That just made her feel nauseous. She always waited a bit before eating and shopping was best later in the day so things didn't have to be carried around for hours and hours.

The look on her friends face when she mentioned where they would be headed first made her giggle. "Just trust me. You're going to love it!" Lia continued walking into the zoo a little bit leading the way into what was a children's playground area that had a tree fort which had kid friendly creatures.

Well, it was fairly obvious to him now that he had lost the battle and to give in on the fact she was not going to take any type of compensation in turn for his ticket for the day, so instead he chose to give a small smile in gratitude. "Well, thank you then." And yes, he would have to figure out a different way to make it up to her. Which he would probably spend the rest of the day thinking about while they continued their travels throughout the zoo.

He could in fact catch up fairly quickly, which he was able to do in not much time at all. Reaching her side around the time they reached the top of the staircase. He glanced around once they were there, taking in all the sights as they started their exploration. The best part of having a tour guide was that he didn't have to pay much attention to figuring out the actual route since Lia knew, and he could just enjoy the journey.

He did trust her, so the request wasn't hard. And yet he still could not get his eyebrow to move back to it's normal, level position. Instead it remained raised as he looked around and they entered the children's play area. There was a lot of trees, which was certainly curious. "I'll take your word on it." And he didn't mean that as sarcastically as it might have sounded. His curiosity was just growing and growing as he wondered what exactly this favorite attraction of hers was going to be.

"You're welcome," Lia smiled back, giving him a tiny play nudge with her shoulder against his in a silent attempt to make him laugh or something. Friends did nice things for one another when they could and this was something that she could easily do without any trouble at all.

She might only be thirteen and she might be a touch on the short side for her age still but she did pride herself in her knowledge of this place and the creatures within the zoo. So technically Evan really didn't need a map buuuuuut she felt that he might like to be able to keep track of where they were heading and where they had been. Plus it did make a nice keepsake. As his 'tour guide' for the day, she was going to make sure he got to see and do EVERYTHING!

Dahlia flashed Evan a wide grin. "Good because that's all you can do right now." Trust her, that is. And he need not worry because she wasn't going to let him down. She led the way further into the Children's Playground. "So this is it. In here we can touch, hold and play with the whoever comes to us. As long as we're careful not to drop, hurt or scare any of them." That was very very important. Obviously the zookeeper for this area was right there keeping an eye on things and would help them should the need it. "They do demonstrations and stuff here too." Could he see now why she liked it in here? Nifflers, crups, kneazles!

He smiled back at her, a small laugh escaping when she pushed his shoulder gently. He might have still been confused on the definition of friend and how people got to becoming friends when everyone started as acquaintances but... he at least knew that he and Lia WERE friends. And that must have just been what this was like. It did feel reminiscent of him and Solana before their first year.

Her height and her age had made no difference to him on this. And he did plan to keep the guide as a memento, but he felt no need to follow along in it while they walked around. She knew what she was doing. So he'd just keep looking at the sights and enjoying their time.

Trust was not something that came easy to him. Too many hurts and betrayals, but this time it was fine. She was still one of the only people he'd explained his past two years in detail too, and while maybe it still wasn't all settled and calmed, but he had taken a risk and confirmed she was trustworthy and a good person. So blindly following her was really not that hard for him to do at this point. But then they were to the area she liked. And... did she just say they were allowed to touch the animals? Hold them? PLAY WITH THEM? He glanced around at the ground and could see all the creatures wandering about. So he did the natural thing to do in this scenario.

And he plopped down where he stood to see if any were comfortable coming to him. "This is so cool! I can see why you like this spot! It's like the no-mage zoo's where they let you hold and interact with sloths and stuff." He did always enjoy those. One on one time with the animals was always the coolest experience.

That would be where they may have differed a little. Lia wouldn't have had a clue on how to even come close to explaining how people became friends because in her eyes, most everyone was her friend. That's just simply how it was. Something as simple as a smile in her direction could mean friendship. It was the type of girl she was. A people person. Usually.

Lia was more than happy to lead Evan around the zoo. Especially when he reacted in the bestest way possible to what she had just told him. The brightest of smiles tugged at her lips as she mimicked him, plopping herself down on the ground near him.

"Right?" She giggled smiling over at him. How can anyone not like this place? Getting to play with all of the creatures was the best. "This has always been one of my favorite spots in the entire zoo. When I was younger my I used to come here with my sister.. she would go do her rounds with the creatures and I would just sit in here for hours."

That was something he envied about her. The ease in which she seemed to be able to connect with people. It was such a confusing struggle to him. But even with the small green eyed monster on his shoulder, he also admired the ability. She was one of those people who people just really liked. Tad was a lucky guy.

Once he'd plopped, and she had as well, it didn't seem to be long at all until a niffler was sniffing around - closer and closer. And probably eying Evan's watch in the process, which definitely had a little shine to it. He didn't think the creature would be able to get it off, and even if he did... it was no skin of the Nam's teeth. So instead he just put his arm out farther, letting the streaming sunlight hit it and reflect just enough to draw even more attention from the niffler.

"That sounds like the best. Did you come to work with your sister often?" If Noah worked in a place like this, Evan would have requested to go with him for work EVERY day.

Lia only had eyes for the niffler that was slowly making its way towards them. The way it was sniffing all around was the cutest thing ever! Watching how it seemed to be attracted to the slight shine that was coming from Evan's watch now. "I think you're about to make a friend," she whispered softly, not wanting to startle the little niffler. As much as she wanted to reach out an scoop the creature up into her arms, she resisted the urge for the time being. She wanted to give it a chance to get closer to them on its own.

"It really is great. I hardly ever turn down spending time around creatures." If it was up to her she would probably come here everyday. Maybe. "As often as I could. I went to work with my papa all of the time too. There's a lot of us kids so sometimes we had to take turns." Coming here with Hady though was much easier than all of the kids going to her papa's shop since the zoo is way way larger.

Evan's attention was also fully captivated by the little creature cautiously making it's way towards them. There was a soft smile on his face as it got closer and closer, sniffing at his hand - particularly the watch. He fought the low chuckle that wanted to escape, and instead slowly nodded his head at her words. "I might also be about to lose my watch." Not that it would matter that much to me if the niffler did manage to steal it away, he had others at home.

"I don't blame you." He would have wanted to spend all of his time here too. "Do you ever get to help your sister take care of the creatures too?" A vet sounded like a really cool job too. It was not something he had yet considered for his future, but maybe. Psychology and study of the human mind did still hold more of a fascination to him though. "Your dad worked at the Menagerie?" Or was he mistaking that? "Has it ever been hard to have to share resources with so many siblings?" And by resources, he really only meant time.

She was sure to have something even if it was a hair clip or a glitter pen. Now that the niffler was super closer to them, Lia reached out her hand slowly and cautiously so as not to startle it. Speaking of which.. hello bracelets and rings that she normally tended to wear?

"Erm.. that really depends," she answered quietly. "Usually not here. If it's one of ours or a family friend or perhaps one she's brought home for a bit than yeah, sometimes." Hady took her job very seriously and it was all about the creatures and their comfort and safety first. Lia nodded. "Uh-huh. That was years ago though.. when we were still little." She really missed when he worked there and getting to be there ALL day long. That was a place where she had gotten to help with all of the creatures. "Resources?" There was a slight tilt of her head a questioning look in her eye. "What do you mean?"

There was a slight tilt of her head a questioning look in her eye. "What do you mean?"
He smiled at her and the offer, shaking his head in response. "It doesn't matter much. My Appa buys me a new one every birthday." Mainly because he didn't know what Evan's interests were, and one could only buy their son so many notebooks before realizing they were piling up. Though for some reason that seemed to escape him on watches. As if someone needed more than one?? The niffler's attention seemed to swivel to her, and Evan gave another small laugh. "Might want something glittery to distract him from your jewelry though." And now that the niffler had turned, slowly reached his hand to stroke it's back.

"That makes sense. I would expect they're pretty particular about that here?" Which made sense. These were not all common creatures, and would need an expert and probably not want a novice assistant, even with as skilled as Lia was with animals as well. "I bet Sir Frederik is especially healthy with your sister around, huh?" It was probably really nice to have someone so good with animals around when you had your own pets. "How old were you when he stopped?" He asked curiously, before she was questioning what he meant by resources. Even he would have to admit that was probably the most awkward way he could have asked. "Uhh... I guess I meant like time with your parents and your siblings? I imagine it would be hard taking you all everywhere...?"

Though for some reason that seemed to escape him on watches. As if someone needed more than one?? The niffler's attention seemed to swivel to her, and Evan gave another small laugh. "Might want something glittery to distract him from your jewelry though." And now that the niffler had turned, slowly reached his hand to stroke it's back.

"That makes sense. I would expect they're pretty particular about that here?" Which made sense. These were not all common creatures, and would need an expert and probably not want a novice assistant, even with as skilled as Lia was with animals as well. "I bet Sir Frederik is especially healthy with your sister around, huh?" It was probably really nice to have someone so good with animals around when you had your own pets. "How old were you when he stopped?" He asked curiously, before she was questioning what he meant by resources. Even he would have to admit that was probably the most awkward way he could have asked. "Uhh... I guess I meant like time with your parents and your siblings? I imagine it would be hard taking you all everywhere...?"
She was about to open her mouth and ask if he was sure, when he explained that he gets a new watch every birthday. "Really? Do you.. like watches?" Lia tilted her head curiously at Evan, wondering why anyone would really need more than one or two unless they collected them. Or perhaps he liked to wear a different one with clothing? She did that with her jewelry all of the time. As the niffler turned its attention towards her she smiled. "It's okay, nothing on this hand will really upset me if he managed to get it off." Yet she still reached into her bag with her other hand to rummage around inside and see what she could find for the niffler to play with.

"Yup, you guessed right. They do offer volunteering programs and internships for older individuals though. That's actually how Hady got started working here." Maybe it was something she would do someday too. "Uhhh, maybe five or six?" (Rper is failing to remember atm lol) she shrugged a shoulder not completely sure anymore. Lia chewed the inside of her cheek as she gave some real thought to Evan's question. "Sometimes? I don't want to lie and say no.. there's five of us younger ones and five adults that are still their kids with their own kids.. so grandchildren. Mum works at the Ministry and papa has his shop, it's a lot already and they really really try. We do lots of things as a family all year around but.. with so many people it does make it hard to get that one on one time sometimes.." she hadn't meant to make it sound like she was upset about sharing her parents but that may have been how it came out.

Default Sunny bunny & Camillo <3
~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Marvel-ous Patronus

Anita thought that the Scamander zoo was a lovely place for date number… what number was it now? She peered over at Camillo thoughtfully. They had gone on so many dates by now that she had lost track. The fun they had had on each of the preceding ones certainly wasn’t something that she had forgotten, however. “It’s been a while since I’ve been here,” the woman admitted. Work, of course, had been the triggering factor that kept her away from having too much free time. For that reason, being back at the zoo certainly felt like a breath of fresh air.

Though not fully fresh because fertiliser, manure and all the other smelly stuff that accompanied a zoo. At that moment, they happened to come across the Gnome Garden. Giggling like a little girl, Anita threaded an arm through her date’s. “Look! That one looks a lot like you,” she teased, pointing a small, fat gnome.

Giggling like a little girl, Anita threaded an arm through her date’s. “Look! That one looks a lot like you,” she teased, pointing a small, fat gnome.
"A very long while since I've been here too," said Camilo cheerfully, giving Anita a smile. If he remembered correctly, his last visit to Scamander Zoo was with his Caerphilly Catapults teammates - yes, THAT long ago - when they decided to give the new kid from Argentina a proper tour around Wizarding Britain. He did not remember feeling as happy then as he did today, and he knew it was all because of the difference in company.

Unbeknownst to himself, the former Quidditch player had been glancing at his girlfriend more than at the wide range of fantastic beasts they passed by. He did want to learn a new fact or two about the magical creatures, but got distracted whenever Anita laughed because he could not resist catching another glimpse of her lovely dimple. The cause of the giggling this time seemed to be a gnome that looked like him. "Haha, well you look like - hmmm, nope none of the gnomes here are pretty ... oh, I got it. Make fun of me some more and you'll be a lot like that one," he retorted playfully as he pointed at a Jarvey in the Gnome Garden.

Since they both hadn’t visited the Zoo in a while, Anita was all in a bubble of happiness that she had chosen the spot for their date. Like Camillo, Annie was thrilled to be here and it was mainly due to his presence. His presence in her life took her happiness to an entire new level. Sometimes, she was still in awe that Camillo had made an impact this quickly on her.

Did her boyfriend think that he was being covert? She had no problem bursting his bubble as Annie had figured it out after she caught him sneaking glances at her. Not to mention sneaking glances at his handsome face was something which she enjoyed doing too. In fact, she enjoyed it as much as she did working on her designs. “Flattery will get you nowhere, Mister,” Annie remarked, giggling happily again. Oh, oh! He thought of her as a Jarvey?

“Then I’m a rabid jarvey! You’d better run for your life unless you want to be bitten!” Cue Anita baring her teeth and bugging out her eyes. Yep. She was totally being silly.

If he knew that Annie was marvelling at how quickly he made an impact on her, Camilo would have reciprocated with a list of all the changes she brought about in him after teasing her nonstop, of course. Just as a few examples, he was happier than ever, and dressed better than ever!

He did think he was being covert, but did not mind that his glances were noticed. After all, he never tried to hide how he felt about her. It was also nice that they kept making eye contact from simultaneously sneaking glances at each other. The covertness though, was just for an extra element of fun. Like his weird attempt at complimenting her by saying how unlike a gnome she was. "It's not flattery if it's the truth," he replied and took a bow like the gentleman he was.

But the next moment, they were back to being silly. Right on cue, Aguilar turned and began to run in slooooow moootiooon while commentating. "Ugly Gnome runs for his life. AAARGH. But wait, Ugly Gnome turns back ... and catches Rabid Jarvey!" He turned back and enveloped Anita in a hug. "The prey becomes the predator! Oops sorry," he apologised upon accidentally stepping on a passerby's foot.

Like Camillo, Anita never bothered hiding how she felt about him. Why should she? This had been the B-E-S-T relationship she had ever been in and she had never been happier. Camillo was quite the catch and not because he was incredibly hot, but because he treated her right and he was always patient with her. And he paid her some great compliments. She beamed so brilliantly, her dimple showed deeper than usual. “Aren’t you the sweetest?” For that, Anita kissed Camillo on his cheek: a loud smack! If it drew attention from other patrons at the zoo, she didn’t care. At present, she felt like a teenage girl again.

Apparently Camillo felt as though he were a teenage boy? He was so silly and such a sport for playing along! Anita legit giggled as she watched him run in slow mo. Really now, this would have been golden to catch on camera. There was more giggling as she was captured in Camillo’s arms. “Rabid Jarvey happily surrenders to Ugly Gnome!’’ Oh no. Her Gnome was causing injury to someone. “Sorry,’’ she called to whomever it was. “He’s just having the time of his life.’’
