The Center for Endangered Mythological Creatures
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     The sign next to the road read "Center for Endangered Mythological Creatures."
 
2     "That has to be a joke," said Diego to Uncle Jose as they drove past the sign and the large building behind it.
 
3     "It's run by some nut case," muttered Uncle Jose.
 
4     "Do you think we could go there sometime?" asked Diego.
 
5     "Only if you have the money to waste," grumbled Uncle Jose.
 
6     It took Diego some time to earn the money, but he finally had it all together. Uncle Jose wasn't exactly pleased to take him to the Center, but a deal was a deal.
 
7     The ticket seller was odd. Diego tried to see the barely visible figure in the booth, but he never got a good look at him or her. His money disappeared neatly though, and two tickets appeared magically.
 
8     They pushed through the heavy double doors into the reception area.
 
9     "Welcome to the Center for Endangered Mythological Creatures," said a voice behind the two visitors.
