Sleena is a young girl that has been blind for years. Her disability was caused by accident, her mother accidentally spilled acid into her eyes while she was trying to defend herself from Sleena’s father. She has been blind forever since.
She lives with her mother and grandfather. She doesn’t really get along with her mother because of the fact she is always blaming Sleena for her problems.
She does not have any friends and she never gets to go out of her house. She is always working around the house and making sure everything is clean and in order.
She also works making beads to make her own money.
She had never been out of her house until one day her grandfather took her to the park. It was the best day of Sleena’s life. She could not believe how happy she was. She couldn’t see anything but just that smell of being there alone sitting under a tree made her so happy. She met a guy named Gordon, he noticed Sleena was blind and Sleena could feel how he was staring at her. They started talking and they became friends, they met everyday at the park and started to know each other.
Gordon is really kind and treats Sleena very good. Sleena is falling in love with Gordon even though she can not see how he looks like or anything.
