Ainara had always dreamed of being a doctor. However, the blood was very disgusting. He studied hard and got very good grades, but he couldn't get over his fear of blood. He had tried everything to get it, but nothing seemed to work. She had dyed her hair red to get used to the color of blood, she helped her mother in the kitchen to prepare meat and fish to smell the blood, she watched movies about blood-sucking vampires ... But nothing, it still grossed her out.
The science and biology classes they were his favorites. The skeleton in the classroom was among his best friends. Ainara called him Bones and every day she greeted him by bumping her hand. He knew all the bones of the human body by heart. Muscles and organs were no mystery to the little girl, either. Ainara used to explain to her classmates how the digestive system when they ate lunch. And it also reminded them how important it is to breathe well when doing gymnastics.
But the most important thing was that Ainara always wanted to help when a friend fell or felt bad. I shook hands with them, held the ice in the bumps, he helped to bandage the legs and arms that were bruised at school ... But when there was blood he had to move away and he could do nothing. That made her very sad.
It was then that her friends and colleagues wanted to help her. Each one had make tasty blood with food that Ainara liked the most. So when I see blood I would think about how delicious strawberry syrup, jelly, plum and cherry cream, ketchup or tomato sauce are. They all made rich and appetizing red dishes that looked like blood.
They blindfolded Ainara to try all the dishes without being able to see them. The little girl was delighted. They were all delicious. When he took off the blindfold, he saw that on the plates everything looked like blood, but since he knew it was all very good and he even wanted to continue eating more, he was not disgusted. This is how Ainara, thanks to the help of her friends, overcame her disgust for blood. Now she was ready to become a great doctor.
