Inspired by today’s Daily Prompt: Stranded
Have you ever wondered what the bee is thinking?
You know, the bee that sneaks into your car when you open the door?
Or when you leave the window cracked?
You know the one.
Buzzing around inside while you’re driving.
There it is, in your rearview mirror, flittering around in the back window.
Wingbeats getting louder and crazier when the bee realizes there’s no escape.
Its little body banging up against the glass.
Bzzzz! Bzzzz! Bzzzz!
Knocking at every corner of that window.
Moving forward to try other windows.
Buzzing its furry, little body along all of the cracks.
Tossing its torso uselessly against each crack over and over again.
And then, the bee finally escapes
Through a window that you opened out of sheer pity (and consummate terror!)
Stranded in a strange new land…
