Helen, the bison, had always been different from the other animals in the forest. She was born with a rare genetic condition that caused her to be completely blind.
Despite her disability, Helen was determined to live a normal life and explore her surroundings. However, the other animals in the forest didn’t seem to understand her struggles and often kept their distance, leaving her feeling isolated and alone.
As the years passed, Helen became more and more accustomed to her solitary existence. She would spend her days wandering through the forest, listening to the sounds of the birds and the wind in the trees.
Although she longed for companionship, she had accepted that her blindness made it difficult for her to connect with others.
One day, as Helen was grazing in a meadow, she heard the sound of hooves approaching. She tensed up, unsure of what to expect. But as the sound grew closer, she realized that it was not a predator, but another bison. His name was Oliver, and he had recently arrived in the forest.
Unlike the other animals in the forest, Oliver didn’t seem to be put off by Helen’s blindness. In fact, he was fascinated by her resilience and determination. He would often approach her and make soft noises, as if trying to communicate with her.
At first, Helen was wary of Oliver. She had never met another bison who was so kind and patient with her. But over time, she began to trust him. They would spend hours grazing together, and Oliver would often guide her through the forest, describing the scenery and the other animals they encountered.
For the first time in her life, Helen felt like she had a friend. She no longer felt so isolated and neglected by the other animals in the forest. She and Oliver had formed a special bond that went beyond words.
As the years passed, Helen and Oliver remained inseparable. They would explore the forest together, and Helen no longer felt like she was facing the world alone. She had found a true companion in Oliver, and her life had been forever changed.
