    I can almost hear the Pheasant (or perhaps the farmer) saying pluck it.
    Thanks you for the fun!

    Poignant. That last line really hurted. Very well scripted and speaks of reality.

  9. So vivid and well – crafted that I believed…

    Well done. It seems kind of sad, but having grown up in a family of hunters, the gunshot sounds like food on the table to me… 🙂

  11. loved the contrast. the last line is surprising and changes the atmosphere. beautiful.
