For Your Consideration
Status: open, concluded
Setting: On a family farm outside a town with two barns, a huge fenced in field, a three story house with many windows and rooms, and a chicken coop beside a pond
Scene: Qi is in the process of her morning tasks around the farm.
Qi sat on the fence, watching the farm animals on her parent's farm. The pigs were tethered down to the food troth so they could eat. The cows were sorted by flavor--the pink cows were her favorite, she decided. Mmm strawberry milk... She sighed and picked up the basket her parents had given her. They were full of wattles--for the chickens. She jumped off the fence and used her free hand to take the younger siblings' hand. She walked to the chicken coop and peaked inside. She threw a handful of wattles into the coop and the chickens went crazy! Feathers flew out the windows and rained onto the ground around them. When it calmed down, she threw another handful. She repeated the process until all the wattles were gone. Only then did she walk in to finally collect the eggs.
Oddly enough, once the chickens had the wattles on--now roosters, they only wanted to sit on the roof, allowing Qiturah to go in and get the eggs undisturbed and without being threatened. She handed the basket to her brother--now full of eggs--and sent him into the house. She grabbed a bag that was hung near the door to the coop and climbed onto the roof. This part, she didn't like to do. She began to try to pull the wattles back off the roosters but they did not like those red sacks to be touched. She was in the mists of a struggle with a rooster when another's wattle fell of. The chicken freaked out and ran into Qi, sending her sprawling off the roof, and into the small pond next to the coop. Qi flailed in the water, shouting at the top of her lungs.
