50 Words Thursday #19– The trophy room

And here are the words:

`What do you call yourself?’ the Fawn said at last. Such a soft sweet voice it had! – Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

Fawn and her mom were visiting great uncle Gerald. He lived in a huge house and had retired from the army around thirty years ago. The whole of the family stood in awe of him because of his hot temper. Though now that he was nearly ninety, he still had the power to intimidate others by just looking at them. Fawn’s mom was her favorite niece so she was invited to spend the Easter break with uncle Gerald.

Fawn was exploring the house when she cam upon the trophy room. She was horrified by all the stuffed animal heads mounted on the walls. It was barbaric and revolting to her delicate sensibilities. And amidst all this evidence of cruelty, she saw a beautiful Myna in a cage. As she went towards it, the bird started to sing .`What do you call yourself?’ Fawn said at last. Such a soft sweet voice it had!

The bird’s song was so melodious that it gladdened Fawn’s heart. But she still couldn’t ignore the hunting trophies on the wall. And the bird was caged too. She decided to take up the issue with uncle Gerald. Cage in hand, she went to find him.
