Lydia- The Pet Communicator (Wattys13- Final...
[Re-writting+ Editing] [PG]
Lydia was living a normal and happy life in Cambridge, United Kingdom. She had deep affection towards animals, since a very small age. Lydia built a small space (shelter) for disowned and sick animals back at her home, with the help of her father. She was her daddy's little girl. Lydia's dream was to be one of the best Veterinarian, by completing her studies at the Cambridge University.
When it was the final day of her board exams, Lydia met with an accident while saving a little puppy that got trapped in the middle of the road, because of some weighty trash. Lydia was hurt gravely on her head and she went into coma for six months, since the damage reached her brain.
By surprise, after waking up from coma, the first voice she heard was of a pigeon. The pigeon cooed, while sitting on the hospital's window, "I got some sticks for my nest, great!" Lydia was amazed, shocked and puzzled.
After her recovery, she realized that she could hear and understand the animals, also the animals discovered that she could understand them. But sadly, her world started falling apart when she confessed to her close ones that she could actually understand the animals, excluding her father.
