The Center for Endangered Mythological Creatures
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     The sign next to the road said the Center for Endangered Mythological Creatures. "That has to be a joke," said Diego to Uncle Jose as they drove past the sign and the large building behind it.
 
2     "It's run by a rather strange man," muttered Uncle Jose.
 
3     "Do you think we could go there sometime?" asked Diego.
 
4     "Only if you have money to waste," grumbled Uncle Jose.
 
5     "I'd like to see what's in it. Will you take me if I earn the money to pay for it?" asked Diego.
 
6     "I guess so," muttered Uncle Jose.
 
7     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. When they got there, Diego peered at the barely visible figure in the ticket booth, but he never got a good look at him or her. His money disappeared neatly, though, and two tickets appeared as if by magic.
 
8     8They pushed through the heavy double doors into the reception area. "Welcome to the Center for Endangered Mythological Creatures," said a voice behind the two visitors. Diego jumped a bit, and Uncle Jose turned around so suddenly that he nearly fell over.
