Flash Fiction: Message

I need to fly fast. No time to waste. But which route do I take?

If I take the route through the hills, I will make it in another day. However, I might get caught in mean weather. My trimmed feathers will not be able to take the cold. I might die and then my mission would fail. I’ll rather take the path through the villages. It will take me an extra day, but I will make it for sure. The letter is most crucial though, I must not waste an extra day. But, what if I die? Left or right, left or right? Which one?

Ooo..those pigeons look pretty. I’m sure they would want some company.Right turn it is, then.

Hey ladies….

The Old King continued waiting for the crucial message sent by his allies. The pigeon should have been here a day ago.

Maybe, we should use Ravens instead?
