Given Sight

Share

There was a woman to lived in a poor village.
She was healthy, yet unhealthy because of stress.
One day she heard of a legend, about a hero who was able to give one a "eternal life".
At first she thought to herself that this "eternal life" would relieve her stress.
She later became curious about this "eternal life" and also the hero himself, but she did not know his whereabouts.
She kept searching for clues, until one day she heard a gentle, calm whisper.
"Here I am.", said the voice.
The woman looked about and did not see anyone, so shrugged it off and ignored it.
As she kept searching, the woman continued to hear the soft whisper till she acknowledged it.
"Who are you?" she asked.
All of a sudden a traveler came along and asked the woman "Excuse me, who are you speaking to?"
The woman answered "I can't explain it myself. I keep hearing this whisper in my heart and mind, yet I doubt it is my own thoughts...."
The traveler again asked "What is this whisper saying to you?"
"It's saying "Here I am. "" said the woman.
The traveler's eyes widened and eagerly said "Oh I think I know. Do you know the legend about the hero? In the places which I have traveled, people claim that this hero is present everywhere. Some claim to hear his voice while others do not. Maybe it might be true for you!"
The woman asked, "Is this true??? Sir, how can I answer to this whisper?"
The man replied, "They say to listen. Carefully listen to that whisper."
As the days and months past the woman listened to the whispers.
Her life have changed and the stress she once had was conquered.

It's as though the woman was blind and she could not see.
But with the help of the living hero, he gave her sight.
A sight which goes above what other's can see.
She obtained the "eternal life" but she also obtained someone much greater which was the hero, himself.

thanks! :)

aww this is really cute, very well drawn

It would seem Robyn doesn't know how to give an interesting opinion, so i'll do it for you. I was a little confused at first, but the story you put in the description kind of summarizes what's going on here. A blind girl is given back her eye sight. I think the story certainly sets the mood. I don't see one problem with this. Well done :3
