Samantha was a very shy girl. She rarely left her yard and was so shy that she even refused to go to school, forcing her parents to homeschool her.
Samantha was also a very curious girl. She wanted to know about everyting. But she refused to leave the confines of her yard.
So her parents bought two large window boxes, placed them on the wall that separated their property from the street, and filled them with tall grasses, leaving a very small opening in between for Samantha to peek through.
And that’s how Samantha got to see the outside world.
