Bia is an outgoing, assertive, talkative girl, the school´s best soccer player. Maia is shy, quiet, artistic and loves drawing and making up fairy tales. How could they ever become friends? It so happens that Bia twists her foot and, by chance, ends up sharing the bench from the schoolyard with Maia who is drawing, as usual. Bia is fascinated by Maia´s dragons and castles, whereas Maia gets to play some ball. This lovely short tale depicts the start of a most unlikely and incredible friendship.
