Picture prompt (Wine)
Rex swooped down, landing on the table next to the salad bowl, and stole piece of tomato. This was wonderful; all these bowls of food, just left here, with no one telling him off when he ate something. He sniffed at a paper cup left on the table. It smelled like fruit, and he licked at the red liquid. Immediately, he coughed, jerking back from it and knocking the cup over. The liquid inside spilled onto the table and over onto the floor. Avoiding the puddle, Rex edged closer to the salad bowl again and pulled out a lettuce leaf.
A loud pop from across the room made him jump and he saw Becker holding a bright yellow plastic container. He knew that it was what had fired the paper streamers that were currently falling all around him.
“Rex, mate, c’mere a sec…” Connor held out a hand to him and he edged closer. He liked Connor.
Rex chattered miserably as Connor draped some of the paper streamers over him like a necklace, drawing Abby’s attention. Casting a disapproving look at Connor, she untangled Rex and he flew away quickly, heading for the safety of the top of the bookcase.
Sitting up on the shelf Rex watched as the people below him drank more of the revolting red liquid and ate squares of food from little pointy sticks. Some of them moved in pairs, swaying to the music, while others just sat together, where they laughed and talked. The music got louder and the people got happier as they drank more from the little paper cups. Rex ducked, taking shelter, as he heard another pop! and streamers landed over the people below.
Humans were very odd creatures indeed, he decided, as he flew down to steal a piece of cake.
