:) He doesn't really say a word in the story. "a while lie" is my own interpretation of the story. I wish this story can be a representation of hope or "change and growth"(like what you said). hope you like it^_^ Thank you!

@01:39That perspective change with the flower was amazing, it was incredibly smooth and believable but everything about this was clean.

Very nice!

It makes PLENTY of sense. ^_^

So he didn't want to tell the story of sadness, instead he just wanted to tell her the story about something happier. Awww. How sweet.

So I take it that you're a student in animations? Wow, I hope you'll be a successful animator. Billions of viewers will be thrilled with every inspiring piece of work from you. Hope to see more animations from you, then! 8D
