A little budgie opens his eyes for the first time and barely sees his mom through the dark. "Peep peep!" he cries out and his mom cradles him against her chest.
"Rest now little one, there's a storm outside of the box."
"Why can't I stay up?" he counters.
"Because I love you and you need your rest." She adds as he falls swiftly asleep.
It is the first day of leaving the nest and he leaves last. His siblings take their first quick flights and leave. Are they going to just leave mommy like that?
he thought. Fluttering clumsily toward the nest he peers in. His mom is still in there sobbing over letting her babies go.
"Mom?" he asks worried.
"OH you should have left by now! why did you stay? Hurry now! Leave!"
his mom says through tears.
"NO!" he disobeys.
"I'm not leaving!" he demands.
"Not without you!" lastly added.
His mom rushes toward him with the best smile a creature with a beak could muster. She tells him she loves him only now he finally realizes more than ever that he loves her too. They fly off in the unique patterns the budgie flies in. Not as an individual, but as a whole.
This is my first story and PLEASE tell me what you did or did not like about it and if I should continue!!!
