“Well, Jocquetta, it’s our last day in Paris; what would you like to see,” says Jocko. “See,” she says. “I’m sorry, babe.” “Did you just call me babe Jocko?” “Yes,” he says. “Kiss me,” she says. 

They went for a walk and came across the Aquarium de Paris when Jocko said, “Let’s go inside and walk around, and I can describe what I see.” The first fish they came across were Walleyes; he read the sign to her that said research shows that Walleyes have excellent vision in both light and dark waters.”

“Oh my gosh,” she says. “This where we should be. I’ve never thought about fish when it comes to blindness; it’s been about Owl research; let’s keep going and learn more about the fish that have excellent vision in dark waters.” 

They continued walking around the aquarium, talking about what they would do when they got home when a little girl came up and said, “Are you Jocquetta?” She said, “I am; what’s your name?” The little girl said, “My name is Connie, and my little brother Michael is blind, and my mom said you’re going to cure blindness, and that would be so cool.” 

Jocquetta replied, “That would be cool.” The little girl ran back to her mom when they came across another fish tank with some fish called Barreleyes. Jocko said, “Check these fish out called Barreleyes; they live in some of the deepest waters, and the sign says they have the best vision in the darkest waters. 

She says, “When we get home, Jocko can you help me get all the information we can find on fish with the best vision? That little girl reminded me that it’s not about me being blind; I’ve feeling selfish, thinking I need to cure blindness for myself; it’s about helping the millions of people who are blind around the world. 

He says, “Babe, I will do whatever you need me to do. I love you more than I thought I could love someone.” So they contain to walk around, and Jocko read her what the signs said about the fish, plus what the fish looked like. 

When they got home, she continued to learn everything she could about the fish with the best vision; then, one day, by accident, she discovered the cure for blindness.
