#34 – Beehive

Posted on Updated on

The House Mouse paused.  The long grass around him was sighing and rustling as he gazed up through the forest of green leaves.  So close.

The hum of the swarm shook the air: a cloud of insects flitting to and fro, journeying to distant flowers.  They wouldn’t see him, surely?  Not a tiny mouse like him,…

The honey dripped down the white paint: a golden stream overflowing to the soil below.

“Where do you think you’re going?” The Bee was bent double with age, its forelegs crossed over its sting.

The mouse pouted and turned away from the guard.

“Nowhere.”
