I have something special to ask you. It's about a young man called Mark, who loves animals, dancing and dressing up as a pirate.
If I could take you to meet him, he might seem shy. He certainly wouldn't say much - he doesn't use words to communicate what he's thinking and feeling. You'd get the distinct impression, though, that you were welcome to come along and see what he's doing that day, on the farm where he works. He'd be very proud to show you.
And perhaps, after you'd spent some time in Mark's company, watching while he helps to feed the cows, or round up the sheep, he might get used to having you close by. And you would get a sideways glance and a little smile that would warm your heart.
