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. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are working with a team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. 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 - thanks for stopping by.

  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
