A Thirsty Crow (Extended in Flash Fiction)

It was burning sun in the season of summer which drained all the fluid out of living beings.A crow, with his beak open was forcing his wings to fly with an injured leg.All he needed some drops of water to wet his tongue which had got completely sucked by heat..His eyes were running all over which searched for nothing but a glimpse of some water.He was shaky in his flight as blazing sun above him was Cruelly shining like a fire over him.He didn't give up to life and kept scanning with giddy mind and faded sight.At last,his eyes suddenly collided with a pitcher made of mud and some hope ran over all his body. When he ogled the inside of pitcher with widening eyes and and his opened beak which was about to attack the water like a crocidile who opens his wide mouth to swallow his prey he got shocked with an anger out of disappoinment as water was beyond his reach due to narrowness of pitcher. He brought back his senses out of shock and puzzled his mind with different solutions. A trick rang in his mind as he focused pressurily on his mind. He seized some pebbles one by one in small opening of his beak and dropped them in water like one man slips a heavy weight from his shoulder.At last,the pebbles settled down and it channeled the water to rush above. The crow soaked in all the muddy liquid inside his stomach and quenched his thirst.He breathed a sigh of relief.His heart filled with the gratitude of God and the word he could cripped out of his mouth was 'Thank God'.
