The old man called her Faith (not her real name but she didn’t worry about it). She feigned indifference anytime he looked her way (as cats are wont to do), ate the food he left for her.
The yellow bird just showed up one day. She watched him plug in the cord attached to it. It came alive! The wings moved; its head turned back and forth. It was going to attack!
Instinctively, she launched herself from her hiding place in the tree, claws fully extended, aiming for the big yellow head. She had only one thought in mind: Protect!
