Sadje over at Keep It Alive provided this picture for her taggees, so I thought I’d pinch it for a little tale.

Once home, they put the stone in their Dad’s shed, smug that they’d gotten away with it.
Next day they noticed it was damaged anyway and were going to throw it away when the stone cracked open and a tiny bird type creature emerged.
‘Oh shit. It’s all your fault! How are we going to explain this?’
‘Can’t we say it’s a parrot and we found it?’ Robby said.
‘That is NOT a parrot,’ said their father standing in the doorway.
