The temperature was dropping fast, the blue sky turning grey and windy, as another storm approached from the west. The daytime birds moved from perch to perch, trying to find the better spot to shelter for the night. A crow watched her from high above, its head tipping every time she made a sound, like it wanted her to know that it saw her, and was not scared.
