The constant cawing would take its toll, Voracio knew that, but he also knew that his voice was his single biggest asset and that without his cawing prowess he was doomed to live in oblivion. Things hadn’t been easy for Voracio for the last many months. It was in June last year that he had lost his place as the evening entertainer in the best bird-club in town, to a rooster. He knew it would happen one day, but he didn’t expect it to happen so soon. Voracio was a rapper and these days rock was the in-thing…especially among the birds. Hip-hop was something that didn’t suit Voracio’s voice at all, so his options were somewhat limited.
Had Voracio been the carefree bachelor of the year before, this wouldn’t have irked him so much. At the beginning of last year, he had fallen for his beautiful crow and proposed. His decision of marriage had shocked Voracio almost as much as it had shocked his friends, but then until you’ve experienced the full force of love, you’d never understand it. Any way, the long and short of it all was that Voracio was facing difficulties in making both ends meet. This was especially painful because just recently Mrs. Voracio had given birth two two beautiful chicks, a boy and a girl, and Voracio was extremely worried about his ability to pay the remaining EMIs on his nest. If the nest went, it would devastate the family.
While Voracio was just a very normal kind of crow who didn’t have any special talents (except that he could rap,) he had a trait that very few in this world possess. He could persevere and persist. Perseverance is something that often spells the difference between success and failure; and Voracio knew this. So he went flying from bird-club to bird-club, hoping to land a job that will help him pay his bills. Nothing worked out, for a very long time, until just last week he landed a job. He had to rap twice a week, in one of seedier bird-clubs, usually frequented by the birds of prey.
It was here at this club, where he first met Grouchy Gordon, an owl so ancient that he had stopped looking any older. Gordie was sitting at table in the shadows, on a branch that was jutting so out of the tree that no other bird ever sat on it. He asked Voracio to join him at his table, and then asked him if he wanted to do something different, something that was more thrilling than singing rap songs to a half-loony audience.
While Voracio wasn’t very comfortable talking to this shady looking character, he decided that listening won’t harm him, and so he listened.
“I’ve heard that you can be persistent. Have I heard right?” the Owl asked.
Voracio thought of his incessant requests for an audition and his continued followups with the club, and nodded.
“Work part-time for us. All you’d be required to do is snatch away the notepaper that this poor lovelorn individual uses for writing, or snatch away the written love-notes, and you’ll be paid a gold coin for every notepaper written or blank, that you bring back.”
He obviously couldn’t refuse. If only he could get five gold coins a week, he’d be living like a king!
