“What do I look like in your imagination?”
But the person’s mouth kept as closed as the eyes were ever since birth. Instead of that, skilled hands scribbled something down on a piece of paper that was around. What came out wasn’t a drawing, though.
I could hardly decode the letters, but the note said
“what do you think my voice sounds like?”.
After a second of wondering what that had to do with my question, I answered:
“I cannot really imagine what your voice sounds like.”
Of course, most people will think you are a grey and old man, that’s my stereotype of a blind person. But the author didn’t even mention if you are male or female until now. And even from appearance, it is hard to judge over a person’s voice. Some people have even told me that the voice changed their first impression after hearing a person. Kinda like the ugly people in casting shows that get standing ovations for singing really well. But what kind of double superficiality is that? Respecting someone for their voice is just as shallow as going from their looks.
“I do understand what you mean now. It does not matter to you at all, does it.”
“Yup. Firstly, the concept of looks is not in my mind. I am sure it would be great to see, but as I have been born blind there isn’t something I am missing. I get around well, and when it comes to people I can see into their heart more easily than a seeing person.”
And until now I cannot remember what the person’s voice sounded like .inspired by Tommy Edison and Sophie’s World
