Iggy stopped to rest. His legs trembled with fatigue. He was parched for a drop of water. After a second, he fluttered his wings again and resumed his endless journey.

Just as he got to the hole, the cable started to move. It rapidly took him right back to where he had started.
He took a breath, fluttered once, closed his eyes, and died.
