death on the hearth

Yummy ending. Ha ha. Great beat to the writing.

On The Heath

A bird entered a man’s home through a window opening, which the wind pushed shut behind it a moment thereafter. The bird was trapped, and seeing no other way out of the mess it tried to go through a hole in the wall, which was in this case a fireplace. It was an impulsive decision which proved fateful. Its desire to quickly get back out to the fresh air landed it in a situation beyond dire. What it hadn’t realised was that the coal on the hearth was still very hot; so it never made it up the chimney, and became dinner for the man instead.
