Petals unfolded softly, revealing the corona. Bringing the flower to full bloom. The bee had been waiting for days. visiting anxiously. Impatiently. Today, finally, was the day. Today was his chance to make the pass. At the sight of such beauty, though, the sting weakened. Today, pure love strengthened. In admiration, whirling above her, careless of his thirst - the bee let go of his life. Leaving the flower's chalice to become another's.
