Jimmy lived in Boston, Massachusetts, he was 9 years old, his father´s name was Tommy and his mother´s name was Liz. He went to a normal school, but he had some problems with bullying and he had already told his parents about it. But one day he was tired of everyone bullying him and that his parent’s didn´t pay attention to him, so he decided to run away.
Jerry lived in a circus, but he was doing shows in Boston. The circus’ boss always hit him and didn´t take care of him. He just cared about the money. And one night he also decided to run away from the circus while all the people were sleeping.
Jimmy was walking in the park with a sad face, but while he was walking he heard some snores behind a tree. He walked over there and SURPRISE! He found a baby elephant. That was Jerry.
They spent all night together getting to know each other and telling adventures that they had passed. After a few days they became best friends. But best friends always need to face their difficulties.
One day Jimmy and Jerry decided to split, just for a while, because they had to solve their problems.
Jimmy went home to talk to his parents, and Jerry also went to the circus to confront his boss.
Jimmy´s parents were really scared because he had run away, but then they understood that they needed to pay more attention to their kid, so they promised him to be a real family. And when Jerry arrived to the circus the boss literally hugged him; he decided to forget about the money and take care of his animals.
Jimmy also decided to talk to the teacher of his class, he told her about the kids that troubled him. She talked to the kids, and after that, they stopped bothering him.
All the problems of Jimmy and Jerry disappeared, and they are still best friends.
Moral: You always need to confront your problems, even if you don´t want to.
