The bird strained in his grip. It tried to break free. It acted just like any bird would. It was a normal bird... but a bird who acted suspiciously...
Immediately, he was reminded of his trip to London so many months ago: Lex and Kirstie's visit to the London Eye had been interrupted by suicidal birds.
