Phil was a very charismatic boulder. Phil worked at the zoo in down town Zola. Phil had a twin sister named Phyllis. Phyllis was not only Phil sister, but also his colleague.
The difference between Phil and Phyllis is that Phil loved his job, and Phyllis did not. In fact Phyllis hated the job so bad. She never gave the animals enough food, and she'd hurt them when they got on her nerves. Phil tried his best to make sure Phyllis stayed in line and acted right, but he couldn't watch her and the animals all at once.
But one day Phil got sick, he was starting to erode. So first he asked his sister to help him
"Phyllis, can you please help me get better?" Phil asked politely after work one day.
But being the villain that Phyllis was she replied " No way! You stink!" and she walked away.
Phil was very upset. So next he went to the person he idolized the most, his mother. His mother's name was Georgina.
So Phil went to his mom's house ,witch was immense, the next day. "Can you help me?" he asked when he arrived. And of course his mother said yes.
Georgina took Phil into her home, and into the basement. From there she concealed him in the whole that was located under her home.
Since Phil was gone for already 4 days all his friends and colleagues inference that he was on vacation, which he wasn't.
Phil stayed in that hole until the day the occasion came that left a chance for him to reappear.
Phil was happy, he was all better again. His friends threw a party for him, welcoming them back, even though they didn't know that he was sick.
Soon Phyllis started to erode, like Phil did. She even asked Phil for help. And Phil denied her like she denied him help.
