Flash Fiction: Fly Like An Eagle

Staring out his bedroom window, Andrew wished he had zigged and not zagged, listened to his corner rather than charging forward like a bull, but now all he could do was think about what could have been with his leg in a cast and an ice pack that rarely moved from his head.

In the distance, he spotted two eagles perched on a branch; their power was evident even while not in flight, awakening Andrew to work necessary to eventually return to the cage.

Soon, he looked forward to beginning physical therapy; the road to recovery started in the mind.
