CHIDI YOUNG: Smell of Freedom


Conscience called. I listened. Sun up, my captive was released back into the wild. Few leaps away from the cage, he paused, filling up his lungs with a whiff of the sweet smell of freedom. One leap forward, and the squirrel was airborne, caged between the talons of a hawk.

Chidi Young lives in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria.
