Cute twist! And I love your title.
I am smiling from ear to ear here. Great take on the topic with a fantastic ending. There was a real elephant in the room! Gotcha! Loved this one. Excellent.
Your Idea is outstanding, with the real elephant being mistaken for the unspoken elephant-in-the-room. This had incredible potential. That said, you might want to work a bit on showing their feelings and thoughts more than telling us about them. We all struggle with that at times.

I truly enjoyed this piece, and hope you will polish it up for a future publication.

I sometimes will open with a shocking or outlandish sentence to create a good hook.

Keep on writing, you are doing great!
Great story idea to take off with. I agree with Sheldon that with more showing (inner dialogue, mannerisms, body language etc.) to establish the mood/conflict and the opening setting, especially in the beginning - this would be helpful in creating intrigue for the reader. (This isn't always easy to do when there is a word count to abide by!) I see a Christian romance novel in your future...
What a delightful story! Warm fuzzies all around . . .

Please "throw a brick" for others to enjoy, comment and support your writing:

Hebrews 10:26-31 KJV
This is a hoot. I loved the dialog that started in the middle. It brought the characters to life for me. I wish you had started off with the dialog, but once it started I hung on to every word. The one thing you might want to be careful about is don't let your title give away the ending. Though in this case I was expecting the guy not to have the same feelings as the girl did. I laughed at the ending and enjoyed both the literal and metaphorical Elephants. Nicely done.
Wow, I'm amazed at the creativity in this romantic comedy. It made me laugh, and I love the happy ending.
