There it was, it came from no place. Well no place in particular. Like fiction riding a metal leaf from the towers high above. Where it started out, no one knows. At first one might of thought it were a silk butterfly, but an unhinged torn dragonfly may of been a more potential answer. Though no one knew for sure, not at first anyway. All they could remember is, it danced in the mid-day sun, they truly could not tell what it was, even might be. All guesses, every witness had a different story, and yet they were all gazing up at the same thing. The possibility of everyone being on drugs, or drunk was slim, but they all came back positive for an unknown chemical. It is almost as if something rained down on them before they saw what they saw, but what did they see. All they can remember is the sky grew dark with fluttering shadows, but that they all collapsed on to the ground. When they arose, the entire seventy story building was gone. How can a building with such stature be taken in such a way. In past forty-eight hours twenty buildings of various shapes and sizes have, have just vanished from around the globe. Something similar happened a hundred and fifty years ago, back then a few witnesses spoke of a bird-man dressed in black after some rain in which they saw those around them collapse to the ground. He came with a cage which contained a black bird, with thousands of other birds tethered by ropes. The cage grew to an enormous size to contain the building, so did the black bird. The witnesses simply said, they picked the building up in the enormous cage, to but fly away with it. How is it possible, a bird man dressed in black, to flyaway with an entire building?
