Beatrice Bee and Mr. Egghead…
Beatrice Bee flew around Storyland on a very windy summer day. She was flying around the university and saw an open window. She wanted to get out of the wind so she decided to enter the open window.
“Oh,” said Beatrice, looking around the room. “This looks like a laboratory. There are beakers and Bunsen burners everywhere.”
“Who are you?” asked a voice from behind Beatrice.
Beatrice turned around and was shocked to see a real live hard-boiled egg standing on a table talking to her.
“My name is Beatrice Bee,” said Beatrice.” How can a hard-boiled egg be alive and able to talk?”
“Well,” said the hard-boiled egg. “I am an important science experiment that has gone right.”
“That is amazing,” said Beatrice.
“I am very happy about it,” said the egg. “My name is Mr. Egghead. It is nice to meet you. You won’t sting me, will you?”
“Absolutely not,” said Beatrice. “I would never sting a friend.”
“Good,” said Mr. Egghead. “I am glad you consider me a friend. I don’t have any friends except for the professors that work here in laboratory, Professor Edelamn and Professor Lindley.”
“Now you have a new friend,” said Beatrice.
“Yes,” said Mr. Egghead. “I do and I am glad I do.”
“I am glad too,” said Beatrice.
Professor Edelamn and Professor Lindley entered the lab.
“A bee!” screamed Professor Lindley, when she saw Beatrice.
“This is my friend,” said Mr. Egghead.” Her name is Beatrice.”
“How did she get in here?” asked Professor Edelamn.
“I flew in through the open window,” said Beatrice. “It was very windy so I just wanted to get in out of the wind.”
“She is going to sting us!” screamed Professor Lindley.
“No,” said Beatrice. “I promise I won’t sting you.”
Professor Lindley continued screaming.
“Perhaps Beatrice wouldn’t have gotten into the lab in the first place,” said Professor Edelamn, glaring at Professor Lindley. “If someone would learn to keep the window closed in here.”
“I suppose you are right,” said Professor Lindley, knowing that she was the one that left the window open.
“Funny how life works out,” said Professor Edelamn. “I mean, here we are with an experiment that turned a hard-boiled egg into real life, yet, we can’t seem to get humans to do a simple task, like close a window.”
