Raven and the French Fry Dilemma – p.7

September 19, 2011 at 5:26 pm 1 comment

As Raven and Cardinal played at eating food that wasn’t there the gulls began, one by one, to fly over and try to steal it. Raven dodged and grabbed his wrapper with his beak and flew up to the top of a light pole. Meanwhile, Cardinal was coming under attack, too, and made just as good a show of defending his imaginary meal, dragging the container back into the dumpster.

Raven was delighted. Cardinal had saved him the trouble of carrying out phase two of his plan!

Cardinal’s chirps and tweets echoed in the metal dumpster, and he was having such a good time listening to himself sounding so big that when the gulls began to invade, he defended his new territory in earnest, never for a moment understanding that this was what Raven had wanted all along. Eventually, though, the little red bird was overpowered as more of the flock of seagulls made their way in through the side door, and he barely made it out with all his feathers intact.

Raven called to him from the light pole, and Cardinal flew up to sit with his friend. When he landed and looked back down at the dumpster, it suddenly became clear to him what their next steps must be.
