I jumped off the top of the building and flew to the ground. At the last second, as I would've smashed into the pavement, I glided through the air into a tree. I was in the form I had learned a few years ago. I was a squirrel- a flying squirrel.
As my eyes scanned the street for wrongdoers, I noticed a man suspiciously look around the street beside him. His eyes were narrowed, and he looked out of breath. Now, I'm sure no self-respecting man would hold that bright pink purse he had around his shoulder there. So I looked in the opposite direction, and sure enough, I saw a woman running frantically toward the man.
Narrowing my eyes, I jumped high off the tree and glided toward the man. He saw me coming and shrieked like a little girl. At this moment, I took my paw, and snatched the purse with it. Luckily, it wasn't too heavy, so I just changed course and took off again. I hid behind the tree I'd been in earlier and waited for the woman to catch up. I then jumped up in the tree, and when she saw her purse lying on the ground there with nobody around, she was confused, but that was okay. Another life had been helped by the mighty Flying Squirrel.
But that wasn't the end of my day, oh no. At that moment, my ultrasensitive ears heard a scream. A scream of terror. My eyes flew to the nearest bank, where I saw two men running into a car with full bags in their hands. I jumped instantly, gliding over to their car. Right as they were about to go, I jumped on the windshield, scaring them enough to stall their car, and the police who had just arrived to grab them. This was just a normal day in my life.
I felt that I had to go home to my family. So I stole into an alleyway and transformed back into a human. What I didn't know at the time was that there was a man hidden behind a dumpster behind me.
