Dear Elves or gnomes or anything else,
I believe in you. Are you real? Please respond.
PS - My name is Angela. Do you have a family? And what is your name?
Thank you for believing in us. As for what is real, that is something you decide for yourself. But we think you know that we're real enough to receive a question. And yes, we are part of a family, and have lots of names. People have been calling us "Elf" and "Gnome" and "Fairy" and other nice names too. Because you believe in us, whatever name you want to give us will be fine.
