Friday Fictioneers: The Beehive



Her heart ached as she watched her mother take a bat to the beehive that had taken residency by the rain gutter. It’s their home, she wanted to say but she already knew her mother’s response. “If you get stung, ain’t my problem.”

She swore her mother has made a vow, that she’d still kill every insect that is currently walking this earth. All must die in her presence.

After her mother returned to the house, she searched the yard to find the fallen hive. A few minutes of searching and she discovered the hive nestled among the rocks. “I’m sorry.”

  1. Sad story, some people can’t tolerate other creatures around. Did you twist two words in the second paragraph, Yinglan? I think it should read ‘her mother has made a vow’ but reads ‘her mother made has a vow’
