When a monkey in Lingding Island of Guangdong
Province was three-month old, it was abandoned by its own
mother and became homeless since, living alone in the fringe
of the monkey community.
By the time it was found by human rescuers,
it was nearly dead. After spending sometime in an animal
hospital, its physical health has gradually recovered,
but not its emotional and mental status. It seemed mortally
wounded in spirit, disillusioned and depressed, to the
point of having lost all its will to live.
Then one day a miracle happened. A dove paid
a chance visit to the hospital and met this suicidal monkey.
Nobody knows for sure what kind of life wisdom that the
winged volunteer passed on to the furred sufferer, but
the amazing result of their brief encounter was observed
by every humans around: the little monkey has been reinvigorated
and soon regained its appetite and strength.
Since then, the winged and the furred spent
all their time together, communicating through body language
and cuddling each other like a pair of affectionate lovers.
Maybe they were lovers in their past life, but are forced
into adapting different forms of existence this round.
Can’t help but wonder what they had done to one another
