The Chronicles of Brutis – Chapter X

Brutis running 1crYesterday morning – I was walking in the front yard when I saw Darby, the barn cat, hunting birds from a tree along the side of the house. 

Knowing Mark loves and feeds the wild birds I sprang into action!

I don’t think he saw me so I had him by surprise.  He was perched on a branch in a tree wild birds often use on their way to the feeder.

But then, he noticed me…

He glared at me with green eyes that  suddenly turned red.

I knew without a doubt he was going to try to blaze me.  His eyes burned with a familiar fire.  The flash caught me off guard, and for an instance everything tuned red.

He screamed in agony, but before I released him I made him know hunting birds shall not be allowed.

“Why? Why?” he screeched at me.  “It’s perfectly normal for cats to hunt birds!  You run this farm-yard like a prison camp!”

“The birds don’t think so,” I barked back.  “And remember this, Darby.  Just because I need you to summon a thing or two once in a while, that doesn’t mean you can run around here breaking rules.  There shall be no more bird hunting anywhere in the farm-yard.  You got that?”

“Yes,” he answered.

“Good.  Now beat it before I really do make you melt!”
