Enjoying the early bird songs Athena sat perched on the window sill of the little boy’s room. When down in the yard a rabbit appeared.
Without deviation the rabbit hopped through the grass and disappeared into the house.
Curious Athena turned, flew over to the door and went outside, downstairs, to see what the unusual visitor was doing.

In the livingroom, at the couch, there it was. Gently hopping along, inspecting the space betweencouch and floor.
Hooting her Hello Athena swooped down and perched on the couch just above the visitor.
“Hello.” The rabbit returned, pulling out an intricately painted egg from under its fur, gently rolling it under the couch, all the while Athena looked on in curious amazement. “What are you doing there?”

“Hiding eggs with presents, I’m the easter bunny.” The rabbit replied, amazed at Athena’s ignorance. Still the rabbit produced another egg and rolled in her general direction.

“Happy Easter, Athena!” The rabbit smiled hopping away again, out the door.

After a few moments the artful egg began twitching, rocking back and forth, and bounced around until its shell broke and was flung away in arches revealing a tiny hatchling snowy owl, called Lilly.
