Twenty Six

Condors built a bridge, seven miles long, made of rodent bones and twigs. Their wingspan gives them knowledge of advanced structural engineering. Wolves are born able to rip you to shreds; condors are born able to differentiate between load bearing pylons and flying buttresses. The bridge was so strong, low-buzzing news helicopters couldn't budge it. Held fast by this growing, flapping mass, we realized too late what was on the other side.
