“If I gave you the chance to become a human, would you want to?”

Back then, I simply smiled and said, “I don’t want to become a human. I want to continue being a bird, soaring freely in the skies. That’s perfect for me.”

As things changed with the passage of time, all of a sudden, I really wanted to become a human just once. Thus, I asked the god, “Can I still have another chance to become a human?”

However, the god shook his head, “You’ve already missed your opportunity. Furthermore, even if I gave you a chance now, you wouldn’t live past a single day.”

“That’s fine, even half a day is fine. I just want to be a human for once.”

The short story is really good, you have to try it once if you're fond of stories that make you cry. It shows the story of a bird with the god's blessing and its thoughts on how the humans were kind. The last line is what it makes you tear up. Thus short story is from the author Zi Xingyu. The volare translator timebun translated another four stories from the same author.

I think I'm falling for this author =) they're ever so amazing

So anyway, it's a story about a bird who wanted to remain a bird so that it could be free, but made the mistake of trusting creatures it shouldn't have.

The flow is simple & rather fast. But still makes you want to quit being a human & become a stone in the bottom of the ocean instead =)

I like it. Pure And Innocence bird and Some cruel evil human. Similar to this live full of sh*t and rainbow.

Not really tragedy but ya... Bird abuse.

(I'm French so sorry for my shitty English) 😅😭

A very beautiful novel, very moving, very sad but truly magnificent. 😍😭

It is the story of a magnificent bird blessed by a god who thought that all humans were good and kind but ended up discovering that the older people get, the worse they become. 🥺

The whole story is splendid but the last sentence is definitely the most beautiful thing in this novel. 😍🥰

I highly recommend this novel which is just magnificent! 🥰😘

I must, say, that husband isn't a very good husband.

No, no.

I just dislike him a slight bit.
