Friday Fictioneers – Childish Curiosity

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly writing challenge where R0chelle Wisoff-Fields gives us a photo and we have to write something creative to go with it that is under 100 words long.

wasp-nestThis week I spent a bit of time thinking about the type of thing I could write. I fancied trying something different and ended up with a piece of writing that is completely dialogue.

Childish Curiosity (Word Count: 93)

“Oh you’re back! Where’ve you been?”


“No need for sarcasm”

“Mum, why are human children scared of me?”

“It’s your stripes darling. Nature has taught other animals not to go near anything with yellow and black stripes because it means danger”

“So I have to suffer because of the behaviour of past generations?”

“It’s the way the world works love”

“But people don’t run away from bees as much!”

“Ahh the human mind suddenly goes all odd when it sees a fluffy creature..”

  1. It’s funny isn’t it, how wasps have such poor PR. They should do something about it. We never talk about bee-ish behaviour do we, other than in a positive ‘busy bee’ context. Nicely done.
