The white bear & the boy
The boy, an ordinary child like you and me, always raises his head to look at the sky in the bustling city. He wishes he could fly one day to search for a different self in another corner of the world.
The white bear comes from a lonely planet. It wishes to encounter his fellows through giving. He has been giving a lot and at last he gave everything to others. In the summer of one year, the boy met the white bear. As the boy saw the white bear was sweating, he divided his ice-lolly into two and gave a half to the white bear. They shared the ice-lolly together happily and were delighted to meet each other.
Since that day, the white bear stays with the boy and becomes his guardian angel.
Since then they support and encourage each other, going forward together to discover the more beautiful new world.
