The Calling Bird

A beggar comes to their house, and she answers the door. She answers as she should answer, not because she’s a good host, but because this is what is expected of her.

She’s by no means a siren, but for the sake of love, she will sing a song; a clever one that everyone knows but can’t understand. For the sake of her family, she will go into a stranger’s house and dance for him for as long as he’s watching and waiting.

There’s a locked door calling her name, and he gives her more than one opportunity to fail. Perhaps he seeks redemption from her, but all she can do is call, and whoever comes to her rescue can also come to his.
