Jim & Mowgli
When Jim was a little boy, he once found a book lost in the park and since then he treasured it. First he made his parents read from it, then little by little he learned to read himself, mainly inspired by this book.
It was Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book" and Jimmy loved all the characters from it, but specially of course the main character Mowgli.
He had a strange passion for him, the more he grew up the more often he imagined him, it was a strange, confusing happiness and sometimes he only needed to close his eyes...
"Akela, the grim old wolf who had never asked for mercy in his life, gave one piteous look at Mowgli as the boy stood all naked, his long black hair tossing over his shoulders in the light of the blazing branch that made the shadows jump and quiver."
