“The Special Girl” is a story about a girl who has the gift of talking to animals. Because of this gift, her parents believe that she should not speak with children or anyone who would see her as different. One day she escapes from her bedroom and goes off into the woods where she finds a boy who is injured. She helps him by getting one of her horses to carry him to a nearby village. When she returns home, her nursemaid locks her in her room for disobeying her parents’ wishes. Instead of being upset, she is perfectly calm and ready to do what she has always wanted to do: leave to begin her own life.
