Just a little harmless research #flashfiction


“What has happened?” I asked my staff of bio-engineering scientists.

“Well sir…”

“Something spilled…”

“Got out of its jar…”

“It seems perfectly harmless…”

What I could ascertain from the words that they dared not say was that the research we were doing to propagate larger and healthier plants had worked. So well, in fact, that when a bee got loose and sucked up what spilled from a beaker we had a bee the size of a house.

“Now what do we do with a monstrous bee?”

I eyed the beaker. The scientist in me considered the possibilities.

This week’s rather large photo prompt was submitted by Jennifer Pendergast. Rochelle is the fearless hostess at Friday Fictioneers where stories are the 100 word variety.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

      1. I agree think of the conversation you generate from doing that, like this comment right now. Great stuff.

  1. Dear Leslie,

    Perhaps this bee will produce über-honey. I agree with Ron, in fact I suspect your story is really English dubbed over Japanese. 😉 Entertaining piece.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
