Legend of the Fall

Man with butterfly receives a visitor ~ N C Wyeth

The beating of great wings announces his arrival but does not interrupt the hum of conversation and the clink of glasses at the conference of beings.
“Name?” the girl at reception, obviously too young to know better, looks up when no response is forthcoming, “Name?”
Her colleague, older, perhaps wiser to the history of the fall, hands him his iD Holo, which classifies him as ‘Delegate’ and smiles an apology.
His expression remains unchanged.
He moves off into the throng of beings, swallowed by the crowd. A single pale grey feather arabesques in his wake to land on the reception table where, unnoticed, it dissolves, leaving nothing but a faint oily patch on the polished wood.

I adopted a baby monkey after I found him on the side of the road next to his mother's lifeless body. The baby didn't know what to do and was sad and crying so I decided to take him with me and help raise him. So I decided to daily post a YouTube video of our baby monkey so everyone can see him. Here's my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYm1jZ-9CFQD1inehrhYcIg
