No, seriously, she was actually sitting on the time!
...Well, actually it's called a Thym, and it was her pet, but the same thing. They're pronounced the same, anyway.
What? You don't know what a Thym is? What rock have you been living under, dear reader?! A Thym is a type of small domesticated elephant that is notorious for having remarkably weak knees, which make it useless for anything other then decoration and companionship. Thyms spend most of their life in the wild looked for food by, and this is no joke, a complicated series of acrobatic feats with their trunk, which has actually over time evolved into a misshapen lump that, due to loss of habitat, is completely unusable in todays world.
What today, you ask? Tyresh! Of course, under the reign of his Majesty, King Greame and her Majesty, Queen Robin. Our little girl with her little Thym is named Gorigana, or Gorgy for short, and lives on a Southern banana plantation that highers all sorts of workers. In fact, this area is Tyresh's "job farm", because they always have jobs available to anyone who asks.
The day that Prince August meets Jenny (his future wife) for the first time is also the day that Gorgy turns 8 and is given her first Thym, a baby male by the name of Molo.
