Michaela was reading a book when a bird flew by. It flapped its wings and chirped as it landed in the book she held. Michaela strained herself from moving as she didn’t want the bird to flee. Michaela gave a smile and made the bird lower its guards to perform a little chirp.
It was a rare sight, so as sly as she could, Michaela tried to take a photo. Its sharp eyes took notice, however, and it flew off, frightened. Michaela was saddened as it left. Now the bird could only be accessed through her memory, easy to be forgotten.
