Alert, he leapt up, crouching on all four feet and ready to jump aside to avoid being hit by the seagull that dropped onto the balcony. It was a very dirty bird.

The curse of the seas. I’m going to die, the You are enough smart strong bold it’s time to believe it shirt gull croaked plaintively. Die? Don’t say that. You’re tired and dirty. That’s all.

That was my last flight, the gull croaked in an almost inaudible voice, and closed her eyes. Don’t die on me. Rest a little and you’ll see, you’ll feel better. Are you hungry? I’ll bring you a little of my food – just don’t die, Zorba begged, approaching the swooning gull. Overcoming his disgust, the cat licked the gull’s head.
