When The Choir Came To Town

(INSERT @vm2904 PHOTO HERE)

Holding something small in his tiny yellow claw, Spotty Brown suddenly stopped in his tracks and stared out into the distance towards the ocean, where he could see a group of black birds, cloaked in secrecy as they all huddled about, heads pointing toward the rotting timbers of the pier, while a very official looking tall figure with very thin legs dressed in a light gray overcoat was standing with his back to the group, looking as if he were contemplating something very seriously.

Curious, Spotty stood there and stared, trying to figure out what was happening and trying to decide if he too should go and join the group.

(INSERT @papilloncharity PHOTO HERE)

Then suddenly Spotty saw one black beak tilt it’s head up in the air and screech into the wind.

Spotty’s eyes opened in fear as he realised it was the local choir practicing and decided to stay where he was, away from the inevitable cacophany and drama when the new conducter in his gray coat realised that none of them could sing in tune.

Thanks so much @wrestlingdesires for the notification and curating this great contest and to @papilloncharity and @vm2904 for the use of your fantastic photos for the fun contest!

I hope that you all enjoyed my little story about When The Choir Came To Town

Haa yes, well the look on Spotty Browns face was just too perfect to ignore. The shock and fear in his eyes...

Yes and did you notice the cane he was holding?

No, that's because he likes to suprise his choir before he thwaks them on the hand with it...

I have a story for friends in this community, here it is :

Empty
Max is an old kestrel who lives in a luxurious building in the middle of the city, other birds respect him very much because max is a great lawyer, he can win any tough case, but they don't know behind his success, there is a tough woman who patiently accompanies him, Kay, his wife.

Max is very sad, his wife has just died of illness, his a lot of money can't afford to buy a life for his wife.
Max feels his life is empty and meaningless, no one will listen to his complaints anymore, no one will cook his favorite pea soup, no one will stand by him and give him encouragement when facing cases that are impossible for him to win, but thanks to the advice and his wife's ideas, he can win them over.

They have a pair of children who are very smart and it seems as if he can see a bright future waiting for his children, he insisted on sending them to schools far away, to become doctors and lawyers.
But after all his children were successful, he felt alone, felt left out, was this the kind of life he wanted? away from the warmth of the family.

Old Max could only cry in his heart, crying over his decision because he had sent his children far away to another city to achieve their dreams.
If he had listened to his wife's words, so that his daughter Lay would stay in this city, maybe he would not feel as lonely as now, someone would call him "grandfather".

Children come to visit only during holidays, everyone is busy with their own business. For some reason he missed the sound of his grandson's squeak, calling him grandpa, Max shed tears holding back longing.

“Honey, when I leave later, stay strong and keep the spirit going through tiring days, facing a world that looks sparkling but is actually quiet, because whatever happens, in the end we can only rely on ourselves, sometimes there are times to regret our decisions because of regret always comes late, but it's not too late to correct our mistakes”, Max burst into tears, recalling his wife's last message before leaving him….

Max had just realized the deep meaning of his wife's message, he smiled to himself.
"My wife is right, I can't regret my decision, the most important thing is how I have to rearrange my life, I can't rely on anyone to survive," Old Max flapped his wings, facing the sunset.

That is a somehow sad, but very realistic story... it was with his best intention that he made his decision, he shouldn't regret it (although that is a feeling that cannot be helped).

Ghad, I am unsure if the second picture is some kind of Owl but I will assume that it is 🤣.


The Forest of Laughter


Grandma Owl always warned us.

"Children never venture deep in to the Forest, the Mystical Being is there and will play with your souls."

The children lowered their heads but one came forward and spoke up,

"But Grandma, no one has ever seen the Mystical being!"

Grandma sighed, as she put her wing on the little owl's head and said,

"Hush now little one, if by any chance you got lost deep into the forest — remember, when you see the Mystical Being, sleep till you don't hear it's laughter anymore and never play with it!"

The Little Owl too sighed,

"Okay, Grandma,"

Grandma flew away leaving the children to their devices but the Little Owl decided to see for himself what the Mystical Being is really like.

In the dead of night he flew deep towards the Forest keeping his senses sharp trying to make out anything that spells the Mystical Beings approach and soon enough he heard little children's laughter echoing through out the Forest. Ahead he saw a glowing balls of light slowly approaching him, fear crept up his feathers and all his resolve turned to dust as he dashed towards the highest tree branch and pretended to sleep.

The Little Owl heard a kaleidoscope of small voices.

"Oh, Little Owl have you come to play?"

A faint light came across his closed eyes that made the dread more unbearable, he wanted to scream and fly away as fast as possible, but realizing his Grandma was right kept him from doing so.

"Little Owl, are you asleep? Wake up now... we are lonely and need someone to play with."

He ignored the Mystical Being the best he can but a part of him wants to see.. there is a deep thought that lingers in his consciousness that wants to play with the Mystical Being, but her Grandma's words is stronger.

"Hmmmm, Little Owl when you change your mind come see me again... I'll wait for you."

The light slowly faded and the laughter slowly got drowned out by the silence of the night. He opened his eyes and the darkness of the forest felt like a warm welcome to him he flew like he never flew before straight back into the safety of his family.

FIN


Thank you for reading😁

But I've lived here for last 216 years, and haven't heard anything unusual.

Transformation for deeds;

Thinking about the vastness of this water, Herson sniffed the terror. Why has he been sent into this feather-holding world

what if he remained a fish?

How the spell worked was unknown to him but he found changes in his body, to streamline body transformation into a bird-like body. He felt suffocated in the water and it was the right time to leave this water media. He remembered his mom's voice to remain connected; he promised that he would visit him each weekend. The strange sound took him back to his present life. He had everything for which a bird would desire but still the emptiness of his soul continued alarmingly.

He could fly very well if he wanted but he was missing the swimming. His story was unknown for his realm but he knew very well how his honest behaviour caused this penalty. He attempted to remain silent on the issue of fish death but his soul was restless. He went to the Guardian of water and told him that there were few octopuses pertaining to this pollution. They were trained by human beings and their goal was to eradicate the population of clown fishes. For sure they all were getting rewards but to his surprise, no one listened to his statement. Instead, he was being asked for the information he sources. The Guardian requested him not to misguide the community. But before he could show the evidence, Kejopta 🐙 did on spell on him. He left the home along with the truth hidden in his heart. Thank God they couldn't alter his heart. He was sobbing as he was helpless. He refused to migrate with his flock but there was no hope of meeting with his family.

In this grief he realised some waterfowl were making noise, so he attempted to listen to the clash they were having. Herson realised that they were fighting and giving blame to each other for this punishment. But why are you being punished? Herson asked surprisingly, one of them replied, we were humans but Lord gave us punishment as we were involved in the wrong act. What was it? Herson asked, we added poison in the water to assassinate the clownfish. An aftershock happened and Herson was having his streamlined body back but that cruel humans were still in the a miserable state i.e waterfowls.

Sorry was trying to find this notification from a while ago! I finally got it.

I'll go with the second picture! :D. Apologize for the bit of vulgarity LOL

"See Tom, right here we have Example "A" here. Right here in my claw!

This here is the amount of fucks I give about your argument in favor of wind turbines. We are getting decimated as a species when we fly close to those damn things! Didn't you see my cousin Pete dead below the one on the mountain back in Chicopee? Give me a break!

Look what happens when I open my claw! It's entirely empty. That means I don't care! I would rather see a little coal being mined than getting killed by that thing!"

Funny set of pictures this week!
