The Bee and the Hawk

One day a bee sat on a log. Then the bee saw a hawk swooping down.

“Stop!” said the bee “I have a better way to settle this!”

“Okay” said the hawk. “Good.”

“Okay” said the bee “Now, if you can scare that horse, then you get to eat me, but if I win, then I get to eat you, fair?” asked the bee

“Fair,” said the hawk. The next day the bee said

“You go first.”

“Okay” said the hawk.” So the hawk flew next to the horse and flapped his massive wings. But the horse did not fear the hawk. Then the bee swooped and stung the horse. The horse ran and ran.

“So, shall I eat you fried or boiled?” asked the bee.

“AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!” said the hawk as he flew away.
