It seems like it was yesterday when Sam saw the big black circle above her in the sky. She was walking to her house when she noticed a weird smell in the air. She kept on going when suddenly a beautiful raven flew to her right, she took out her smartphone and start taking pictures of the stunning bird.
Then she heard strange noises, when she came closer, she understood it was the voices of many blackbirds hovering above a blue car. Next to the car, there was a dead raven laying down with some unhatched broken eggs on the sidewalk. Sam was shocked, speechless, and scared at the same time. she had to do something, she picked up her phone and while she was taking picture of the event, she started crying and felt sorry and sad because of the situation.
After uploading the footage to her social media, she heard a sharp noise of motorcycle wheels coming to her direction. It was one of the members of the "Crow Crew". The man got closer to the dead body, and the screaming of the birds started to get lower. He picked everything up from the floor, put it in a cotton-like bag, and start walking to a certain tree, leaving the bird and her eggs on a sturdy branch.
The man thanked Sam and start driving back. Sam had nothing to say this whole time, it was one of the strangest things that have ever happened to her.
