The owl that got away

One of the three monkey-faced owls that Bennie of Bagtingon kept as pets decided to try gliding to lower grounds and other trees further away, away from Bennie's house while they were out on Sunday mass. It took some time for Bennie to find the one that got away when she realized that one was missing at feeding time for the birds with some fish from the market.

She found it perched atop a fruitless mango tree in a neighbor's backyard. But the owl instantly recognized her sweet amo, boss, flew right into the woman's waiting arms after some playful prodding. The poor owl got some gibberish scolding from Bennie that only the two of them understood.

Reunited and it feels so good
Reunited 'cause we understood
There's one perfect fit
And, sugar, this one is it
We both are so excited
'Cause we're reunited, hey, hey
