In a short part of the story that I am writing, there is a scene in which all the characters are sitting together and asking a female character, "how does she talk to the animals?"
The whole world is made up and set in medieval times, so how would one understand the animals?
I have written the scene, I want to confirm that the details I have written are correct. If you read the two bold texts, you will notice I have changed the verb of the sentence: from talk to understand. That's the same difference the character points out. She goes on to says, "I don't talk to them — I have spent so much time with them that I understand what they mean from the way they behave. I feed them, take care of them, and protect them... they do the same for me." If you move ahead in the story, at another instance, she explains how from her childhood she has been with them: playing with them and training them.
The reason, why other characters are asking her these questions is because her animals point out the location of the base of other players (it's a kind of game), like the birds would circle the area or sometimes a mouse would come up to her and nibble her hand, guiding the MC to the players' location.
So, what I am asking: is something like this is possible? Does this make sense?
PS The MC does not live like Tarzan, she has mommy issues. Therefore, she spends most of her time in the nearby forest
