It’s not easy keeping two identities straight. Let’s say, for example, that you are tasked with cracking the toughest cases, but only in utter secret.
To do this successfully, you need to have another, separate identity, if for no other reason than to have a ready answer to the question, “So what do you do for a living?”
After all, when you are .007, pint-sized super spy, you can’t very well just go around saying, “I am a ‘black ops’ secret agent!”
So instead you say, “Well, some beings know me as Pearl Cutts, the famous and feathery actor.”
Speaking of which, Love & Feathers is proud to present the world-famous and feathery actor Pearl Cutts in his latest one-avian play:
As the actor’s VIP fans enter the theater, they can see a dusky grey spaceship has docked right on the stage.
It seems to be glowing faintly and emitting a slight hum.
The audience is mesmerized….so much so that, when the feathery star finally does stride on stage, they actually forget to faint (which also means that, for once, the play actually starts on time).
The mysterious large featherless being known only as “Mom” nods her head in assent and disappears backstage.
At this point, a distinctly “toasted” scent begins to waft towards the audience from the docked spaceship. The scent is quite….strong.
The already drooling fans are ushered swiftly out of the theater as the curtain snaps shut.
