T.H: Hello?

[SILENCE]

T.H: Hello? I’m looking for-

??: Think you got the wrong line.

T.H: No, no! I’m sure I put it in right? Look, I’m looking fo, uh- I got this number from-

??: Have you ever heard of discretion? If you believe this is indeed the number you’re thinking of, why are you trying so hard to reveal every piece of information you know over a line that could well be tapped for all we know, and to a person you don’t even know is here to help you yet, or just some nark?

T.H: I- uh. Yeah, no, you’ve got me there. All I was told is that you might be able to t-to help, you know? Get a bird back with some… wings?

??: We get all sorts of birds back flying, just call us a wildlife centre. Thing is, though, not all birds deserve to be back soaring up in those clouds. If that bird has no beak, how is it going to peck? If the bird has lost its feathers, what can you expect it to fly on? And, of course, if that bird can’t see-

T.H: This bird hasn’t lost anything. It’s as good as the day it was hatched.

??: And the bird has its wits?

[SILENCE]

T.H: If I can- if this bird can fly straight, that’s all that matters, surely?

??: I’m not a bird enthusiast, but I do like the birds I already have, and I don’t want any of them being taken out just because another bird has a ‘moment’ midair.

T.H: That won’t be a problem.

??: I see. Well, in that case, we have a bird market coming up on Sunday, oh-three-hundred hours, Mundan shipyards. We’re an introverted group, not big on getting attention with crowds, so we hide ourselves in the lane behind bay thirty-two.

T.H: Mundan shipyards?

??: What can I say, I’m more of a fan of ships than birds.
