Twins, separated at birth. One sent to a freak show and zoo, the other to a loving and caring home.

One to be poked, prodded, laughed at, mocked. The other cuddled, coddled, cherished, loved.

Each dreamed of the other; psychic link forged in the womb.

Tears glistened on Drusellia’s beak, thinking of her sister’s horrific childhood.

Last night Drusellia finally jimmied  the cage door lock and set her twin free.
