Shockingly Sinister Shorts #22

* A young man who was on an Amazon conservation expedition had found 2 injured blue macaws in a poacher’s camp. These rare birds are sought after by poachers to sell as high dollar pets. He nursed them back to health and, due to his work background, was allowed to keep the now domesticated rare birds for himself. He planned on heading back to his parent’s house in America so he has them shipped ahead of his visit. He sends a message to his parents explaining how rare the birds are and one is for them and he will keep the other. A few days later, the young man arrives from his long journey at his parent’s home. *

Mother: Oh honey, you are so late, we thought you weren’t going to get here.

Young man: There was a delay at the gate and we sat on the runway for 2 hours! It is so good to see you!

Mother: Well dinner is almost cold! Come sit down and let’s eat and we can talk all about it!

*The young man and his mother enter the dinning room where his father is already seated at the table preparing for dinner. The young man takes a seat at the table.*

Father: Good to see you son! I was afraid I was going to have to eat without you!

Young man: Never fear! I am here now and we can let the feast begin.

*The mother quickly brings out steaming hot bowls of delicious smelling food as the family makes idle chit chat. *

Young man: So father, did you all get the birds I sent?

Father: Sure did! Boy they were some loud ones. We haven’t seen live birds since I was a boy back on the farm.

Young man: Did you manage them ok? I tried to get here fast so you would not have to deal with them long.

Father: Oh yes, we had no problems at all.

Young man: I would love to see them.

Father: Well, here they are now!
