It started out like any other day, but in this world you just can’t predict the future and what may look like an ordinary sunny Saturday can in an instant turn into a heartbreaking moment never to be forgotten.
I was happily applying my many layers of makeup, when my loving spouse popped around the corner. After recoiling in shock at seeing me without the 17th layer of beauty he recovered enough to tell me that a package was waiting.
I happily ran into the other room and there it was! The delivery I had been waiting for! It arrived just a few days after I had ordered it but it had seemed an eternity. I gingerly picked it up and ever so carefully carried it to a safe surface where I could release the two additions to my family! Such a joy and aticipation I haven’t felt in a long time. I still remembered that moment when I saw them in the online catalog. My heart felt like it would explode at the memories they conjured up, joyous childhood times and carefree moments. Watching these creatures perch, and entertain. My beautiful feathered friends drinking with their dainty beaks.
So I carefully opened the box. I knew something was amiss almost immediately. I could see the red stain on the outside of one box. The horror! One box covered in red while the other remained pristine. With a heavy heart I opened what had now become a tomb for my never to be companion and it was as I feared. It’s abdomen shattered and it’s life force spilled onto the sides. The companion looked on, with no remorse. It was I fear a case of fowl play.
