Today Jo was saying that perhaps extinct animals are not actually dead they just adapted to be invisible. I asked if I could use this for today’s story so here we are:
People were never kind to me, so I hung out in the forest a lot. I never saw any animals but it always felt like I had friends there.
One day I was so badly bullied I just wanted to dissapear. So I went to the forest and I did.
When I got there, the forest was teeming with animals. Animals I’d only seen in books, animals I thought were extinct. They sat by me as I calmed down.
I didn’t know it then but I had adapted. If you are bullied for long enough by people, you have to learn to become invisible.
