Fred flew towards the sound of her laughter. There was always food left whenever he heard it.
He swooped in through an open window of the boat, and landed on the table. Fred started gobbling the food down as his feet alighted, ignoring the gasping man.
“You bitch,” the man choked, before the arm reaching towards her shrank, growing feathers.
She strolled to the table. Fred stopped eating when she reached for a piece of bread. Instead he chased the new bird out. No matter how many she changed, he was still her first. Fred flew to her waiting arm.
