Another story published today and again it was at Microhorror.
The story is based on a true life experience. A few weeks ago, there was a bird waking me up around 6am every morning with an annoying song. Unlike the one in the story, this song was not sweet and lovely, it was off-key and grating. One night I dreamt that it flew down and landed on my hand, digging its claws in so hard it couldn’t fly away again.
The next day I wrote this story. A few days later the bird stopped singing outside my bedroom window.I presume it finally accomplished what it was singing for and is doing something else with its life now – maybe a backing vocalist for someone.
Anyway, the story is called “Ma Petite Piaf” and can be found here.
