He rushed to the windows, waiting for his daily glimpse of her. This was his favourite time of the day.
The beautiful girl enthralled him. He wished to dance alongside her, have a closer look at the red highlights in her hair and flecks of green in her eyes.
However, fear kept him caged up at home.

When her pet bird passes, he takes the opportunity to reach out.
The brush with life transforms him.
