I knew it would come to this... by toeknuckles
Rat was so beautiful that it drove Crow, the jealous lover, out of his mind.
Eventually he was driven so insane by the whole world looking at Rat that he imprisoned Rat in a bottle.
In the middle of nowhere.
A couple of times a year, he would fly to look admire how beautiful his rat in a bottle was, then fly away again, leaving Rat as a prisoner for all eternity.
