I went for a sea story today. Don’t mess with the wasp. Personally, I think they’re evil and have nothing but malicious intent.

The Legend of Hornet Cave (105 words)
“Wasps stung him, his body never found. A half-man, half-wasp creature flies over these parts. The other guy escaped, but died a mysterious death.”
“How?” asked Suzanne, shivering in the canoe.
“He fell from a chair while attempting to kill a wasp,” said Doug.
They pushed the canoe into the sand. At the cave’s entrance, they beheld a nest the size of five human heads. Wasps trickled out. Suzanne pocketed a delicate piece of a wasp nest found in the sand.
Rowing back to shore, wasps dive-bombed their intruders. With one piercing sting, Suzanne screamed and released the nest back into the water.
