It was a sunny day. Topaz was hunting birds in the holly bushes. The blue jays were chittering away. Topaz crept farther out the branch, careful not to warn them.
When Rudy dipped a cup of potion, Topaz leapt, the birds flew, and Rudy screamed. He ran home crying over the ruby droplets dripping down his arm, the spilled potion was forgotten.
