The chicken watched me from across the yard. How did she always know?
I ignored her and continued my chores. At least the cows didn’t care what I’d done last night.
The chicken followed me as I made my rounds. I felt her beady black eyes on me. One of the cows nuzzled my shoulder and I tried to return my focus to their food trough. But soon I felt her watching me again.
I couldn’t stand it. I threw down the feed and spun toward her.
“What? Ok. I did it. I saved the princess without you. I didn’t have time to wake you. You were sleeping and all the others were around and…”
She didn’t listen to my rant. My confession complete, the chicken turned her back to me and strut back to her roost.
