“I think you lied to me,” she said as they swam to the shallow end of the private lake. “You told me that story just to pull me away from my friends and take me here… They are probably catching lots of fish in the river right now…”
“I promise, I told you the truth! Just wait and you’ll see for yourself!”
“There’s no human here, and there certainly is no human here that speaks our language! You said that this human guarded the bridge and made you feel welcome.”
He tried to catch up with her as she swam away. “I promise the human was here! Maybe she does not like to go to the bridge when it’s raining…”
While enjoying a late lunch, the human and her friend watched from the balcony and snickered often as the otters explored the parameters of the pond. They were glad that the otter returned for a visit and brought a friend to the secret pond!
