James hid it under a log hoping to forget, but the memory taunted him. He returned to work as if nothing had happened, but that cawing crow; it never left him alone. He could hear its call while he moved boxes in the warehouse. It glared with its beady yellow eye when he left the building. He cringed at the sight of its long haggard wings racing him home. When he looked through his dirty windshield, the crow was perched on his roof waiting – for him.
He had to face it.
He bolted from the car, sprinted to the log, and rolled it over.
There it was. The winning lottery ticket.
Kind of an interesting ending, but I am sure that winning has freaked out more than one lucky person.
