"Are you real?" the little child asked surprised.

The Unicorn nodded. The unearthly beauty was something the child had never witnessed. His mouth stayed wide open in amazement.

The Unicorn understood the human language. After all, how could he forget the long association with this much dreaded species. Thousands of years ago the humans had cut off his ancestors' horns, depriving them of their magic and treating them like horses. It was then that the remaining unicorns decided to be invisible to mankind, except children who have pure hearts.

"Look Dad, my new friend."

"I can't see anyone son."
