The Third-Floor Bedroom
“Hurry the show is about to start!”
“I’m coming Alex!”
Alex and his mom were getting ready for a bird show. Alex loves birds so when he heard a bird show was coming to his town he had to go. Alex’s mom came down the stairs running.
And it all began when someone left the window open…
They got into the car and his mom started to drive. Meanwhile in Alex’s third-floor bedroom there was a window that was left open and the Carrier pigeons on Alex’s wallpaper came alive one by one and flew out the window making noisy wing beats.
“Ahh, finally I’ve been waiting for someone to leave the
window open it feels good to be back!” exclaimed Percey.
“Yes yes it feels good,”said Pat, he was the smart one, “But we haven’t been carrying messages for years.”
“Yes. What if people don’t need don’t need us anymore? What if they invented something else? What if………”
Percey interrupted Paul, “Don’t worry, you always worry. I bet someone still needs us!”
“Actually, I believe Paul is right. We have been stuck on that wall for a while. I don’t believe that anyone needs us anymore.” said Pat disappointed.
“Oh come on you guys you can’t say that, look the window is open. Come on. I’ll prove to you that they still need us. Let’s go!!!” and with that Percey leaded the others out the window and they followed him out to New York City.
“WOW!!!” yelled all three of them at the same time.
“See look how much work will have here no one will ever stop needing us!!” said Percey.
“Well what if they invented something else that tops us?” asked Paul
“Oh stop ‘What if-ing’ look I bet…….”.
“Wait guys look down there at that house” interrupted Pat
They looked down at the house and they saw a man he was giving a woman something that looked like a card something that they use to give to people. The woman thanked him and the pigeons charged for the man but the man managed to duck.
“Wow, those pigeons were surely mad. They looked like carrier pigeons Bet they were mad you’re stealing their their job, huh??” the woman said.
The man and the woman both laughed at the women’s joke.
“How’d they know that we are carrier pigeons???” asked Paul
“No idea, but that’s not important right now. What’s important is that we stop that man from stealing our job!!” said Pat heroically .
They followed the man to the next house. He gave the mail again and when the man wasn’t looking they grabbed most of the mail from the guys bag.
“Now we deliver!!!!!!!” they said together.
So the pigeons split up and delivered the mail. After they were done they met back up at the house and went back to the wall
“Right on time,” Percey said proudly as he saw Alex and his mom come back “See told you guys that they still needed us”
“You were right,” said Pat
“I thought we were going to end up like the bird that left 2 years ago and didn’t come back,”said Paul
“Was that a good show Alex???”
They could here Alex and his mom down stairs.
“Hurry!” said Percey.
“Until next time fellas,”said Pat
“Until next time!”said the other two and they went back to the wall where they stayed and waited again for someone to leave the window open.
