A challenge, can you identify this short story?:confused:
Any help very much appreciated.

A young woman as part of her University studies obtains from the library bones of varius animals to arrange/reconstruct. She asks the librarian (young man) for something completely different, a challenge. He gives her a bag with bones of a winged creature with an otherwise human body structure. Upon completing the reconstruction she gradually transforms into one of these creatures.:eek: She finds the librarian has also been transformed. They fly away together;) realising they can no longer be part of society.

- The story was most likely written in the 60s/70s.
- It was part of a collection released in Former Yugoslavia, most likely a translation.

Thanks in advance...:D

I deleted your other two exact posts, crossposting is frowned upon. This has more of a Science Fiction sound to it, anyway.
