Room at the top
 
 
Becker looked up at the lighthouse, holding a hand up to shield his eyes from the sunlight. At the very top, sitting on the railing around the walkway, a Pterodactyl was perched with its wings outspread, sunning itself.
 
“At least it’s not causing any trouble,” Matt observed.
 
As they watched, the Pterodactyl tilted its head, suddenly darting forward to snatch a seagull out of the air as it glided past, devouring it in a few bites.
 
“Okay, so it’s not causing us any trouble,” he amended.
 
Becker squinted up at it again. “How the hell do we get it down?”

Heh! Seagulls are bloody rats with wings, so I bet a lot of local councils would happily hire Pterodactyls to kill off the buggers!

It would certainly make a change to see them flying about at the seaside, rather than those dreadful squawking seagulls.

LOL, poor seagull!

love teh idea of the boys watching it and calmly discussing what's going on.

The boys are probably trying to put off dealing with it for as long as possible.

Great images.

I'd like some Pterodactyls to come and eat our bloody flying foxes.

LOL! That was fun! Can we borrow the pterodactyl next summer when seagulls start plaguing the city centre? I'm sure it would work much better than the hawks and the egg-painting!

Thanks!

We're pretty lucky- we don't get many seagulls in the city, just an army of pigeons that appear to be slowly taking over.

Nothing surprises the boys any more, not even seagull-eating pterodactyls...

This was a lovely little drabble to wake up to! I loved Matt's line "Not causing US trouble." XD I would imagine the the task of getting the Pterodactyl would be simply hilarious for the two of them!

I loved it!

*sporfles* Boys, the sooner you solve the problem, the sooner you can go home and shag...

Now there's motivation for them...

Cutter would say: "Shoot it!" (with a tranquiliser gun, of course) *g*

He probably would.

Thanks!

Lol! That's certainly a dilemma for them *g*

I'm sure the boys will figure something out (or find something to occupy themselves until it comes down of it's own accord)

LOL! Great scene *g* Poor gull :)

Thanks! That seagull should have had more sense than to fly within reach of a pterodactyl...

Hmmm... problem.

It is indeed, but I'm sure they'll think of something.

Or something tastier than seagulls to tempt it down with...
