Jupiter and the Bee

A long time ago there was a bee. She was a honeybee. She was mad. She worked hard to make honey. Then people took her honey. The bee wanted help.

 

The bee took some honey. The bee flew to the heavens. The bee flew to Jupiter. The bee gave him honey.

 

Jupiter was king of the gods. Jupiter loved the honey. Jupiter said it was a great gift. Jupiter asked what he could give the bee.

 

The bee asked for a stinger. The bee wanted to protect her honey.

 

Jupiter did not like this idea. But he agreed. He gave her a stinger.

 

But using her stinger will kill her. She has to choose. Will she protect her honey and die? Or will she live?

 

Since then, all bees must make this choice. Do they protect their hives and die? Or do they let people take their honey?
