Honey Bee by Melissa Chadburn

One summer, in a day plump with moisture she went in search for him. The treacherous journey took her through thickly padded bushes, distracted by the unbearable scent of a rose… she stopped. There he stood, his skin exposed. Forgetting her inhibitions, she dove for him. He thrust her toward imminent death. Her sting remained. He was allergic.

  1. Why was she searching for him? I would have thought she’d search for honey but maybe was distracted by the scent of his cologne?

    Unexpectedly dark ending. Well done!
