Two characters in search of a story

Randy Rabbit sniffed at the ground.

“Yum, bird seed,” he said. “My favorite.”

“It’s a trap!” Saffron Starling called from above. “Why would there be a pile of seed in one place?”

Randy considered this. “A trick of the wind?”

“No! People! Humans!”

From some distance away, a dog barked.

Randy ate a few kernels of seed.

“It’s tasty,” he said.

“So are you, they reckon.”

“You think?”

Somewhere closer, a dog barked twice.

“You don’t have to tell me twice,” Randy said, scooting away.

“Literally, I just did,” Saffron shouted at Randy’s tail as he bounded away.
