Sally groaned as she sat up. Everything had been a blur,’and she barely remembered what had happened. All she knew was that her whole body ached horribly… And why was it so dark? And was that a heartbeat she heard? She turned a bit and felt her wings brush the walls of her prison…
It came flooding back. Her capture of Melissa and Cici, their speedy regrowth, her deal with the bee-lady…
She lightly touched her wings. They were still small, not entirely formed. Curious, she reached down to her back pelvis, and sure enough, she felt a bee stinger, sized up to fit her proportions.
She pressed a hand against the front wall. “Hello?” she asked, surprised when her voice came out a bit squeaky.
“Ah, you’re awake,” came Jessy’s voice. “Good, I thought you might have been put in a coma.”
“…Am I in your womb?” she asked.
