A to Z Random Post # 6 : F - the Friend....







Her friend was  busy with the new home she was building.

She wanted to help, but age held her back.

" I’ll visit her once at least and do what I can, " she thought.

When she reached the construction site, no one was around.

" Oh ! I’ll just have to wait for her return," she settled on that.
  
The night was fast descending and her friend was nowhere in sight.

Her kids were alone at home ; she decided to leave. 


But not before shedding very carefully from her thinning plumage, a beautiful blue feather ;  her contribution to her friend’s new home !!
