This story was a struggle this week - I would appreciate any comments and constructive critiques. Thank you!
Kaitlinn watched as a dark shadow flew against the pale morning sky,
then hovered magically on thin fluttering wings before settling on the nearest tree.
She remembered seeing pictures of it
in school, told about it, but thought that they were a figment of their imagination.
Yet here it was, sitting in a tree.
A hush grew over the crowd that had gathered around her, staring at the same curiosity.
“What is it?” someone had whispered, both in horror and awe.
Kaitlinn shivered in its wake. “I think it’s called a ‘bird’,” she replied.
