Pendleton Queen park

 

 

Pendleton Queens park (P.Q.P) is a 64- ark public park with pine trees, lakes, and fields. The park has strict rule for humans to follow because it is home to many kinds of wildlife: Squirrels, ducks, birds, etc. As such, many people visit the park to feed the animals who live there (mainly the ducks).

  Near the park entrance, there stood a family restaurant. The restaurant wasn’t an eye-sore in relation to the rest of the park in anyway. In fact, they both played off each other quite well: the restaurant modernized the forest, while the forest mystified the restaurant. In keeping with the theme of the forest the restaurant was also made entirely out of wood (whether the restaurant was made from the wood of the park trees or they import it from somewhere else nobody knows).

  The restaurant was medium sized with only enough space to house eight wooden, rectangle tables. As such, it was usually able to fit everybody who came to the park doing the weeks, but doing the latter half of the week (week end), it could not fit even half of the parks visitors. However, it wasn’t a huge problem for people was just as happy to eat outside with the wild animals than inside with strangers.

  Ever since she turned eighteen, Airi has, for the most part, been left in charge of the family business. She wasn’t alone, however, since her two younger siblings, Aaliyah and Destiny, stepped up to help her run the business. The two eldest had previously helped their parents run the shop when they were younger, so they had an easy time keeping the restaurants going even now that their parents weren’t around to help them. If the eldest, for some reason, couldn’t go to work, the second eldest was in charge. However, if she too couldn’t work then the restaurant would be closed for that day since Destiny was too young to run it all by herself.

  Besides some minor incidents, nothing out of the ordinary ever occurred during or after their work hours. However, the story I’m about to relate to you (the reader) is how the extraordinary was interjected into the ordinary lives of the siblings.

  It all began on what should have been a very normal day for the three siblings. They were taking orders and serving their costumers when suddenly what looked like a girl dressed as a bee flew into the building.

  “This place is my new hive!” Shouted the bee girl, “so everybody get up and leave at once.”

The entire building went silent.

“Whose child is that?” Aaliyah asked Airi.

“I don’t know.” Airi replied.

“I’m no one’s child!” replied the Bee.

Walking towards the bee, Aaliyah asked her if she had lost her family.

“That’s none of your business!” she replied, as her cheeks started to appear pinkish.

  Turning her attention to her elder sister, who was behind the counter, Aaliyah said, “I’m going to help her find her parents. I’ll be back.”

  Airi gave Aaliyah the go ahead.

“Follow me,” said Aaliyah. She then preceded to lead the bee down the restaurants lain towards the street.

“Ok bee girl, what your name? you better not say bee girl,” Said Aaliyah.

“My names Byzantine of Hive C-11”

“Byzantine,” said Aaliyah, “That’s a cute name.”

“Thank you,” said Byzantine.

“What does Hive C-11 mean?”

“It’s the Hive I belong”- Byzantine remembered she had been kicked out- “use to belong to.”

“What do you mean use to?”

“I was kicked out… again.”

“Sorry to hear that.”

“I’m making my own Hive so it’s all right.” Said Byzantine, cheerfully.

“I’m Glad to hear that. May I ask where are your parents?”

“My mother is back at my old Hive.”

“How about your father?”

“I never knew him.”

“So how did you get here?”

“I flew here.”

“Really… you flew here. I’m not believing that.”

“I did fly here.”

“I don’t believe you.”

  Using the wings on her back, Byzantine lifted herself off the ground. As she did so, she said, “Why don’t you believe me? Normal everyday bees travel longer distances in their sleep! Why do you think I’m incapable of doing the same!”

  Aaliyah was surprised at Byzantine ability to float off the ground. “How are you doing that?” she asked.

  “If you were a bee all you would have to do is flap your wings.”

“How do you get your wings to move? I thought they were just made of plastic.” Said Aaliyah, as she stared at Byzantine wings going up and down at a high speed.”

“They’re not plastic. I was born with my wings like any other bee.” Said Byzantine.

  Wanting to feel Byzantine wings, Aaliyah stretched out her arm towards Byzantine wings. However, Byzantine moved out of her reach before she could do so, buzzing as she did so.

“Don’t try to touch my wings human!” shouted Byzantine.

“Wow, how did you make that buzzing sound?” asked Aaliyah.

“All bees have that ability, human.”

“Bee girl would you like some honey?!” shouted Destiny from the restaurant door way.

Byzantine quickly flew towards Destiny and asked, “Where is it?”

Destiny pointed to Airi who was opening a jar of honey from behind the counter.

  Using a spoon, Airi scoped up a large amount of honey from the honey jar. She then held it out for Byzantine to eat.

Byzantine wasted no time in accepting the bait: within seconds the part of the spoon with honey on it was inside of her mouth.

“Let’s make a deal Byzantine,” whispered Airi, “If you let us stay here, we will pay you with honey. Do we have a deal?”

Spoon still in her mouth, Byzantine nodded her head in agreement.
