Wednesday’s Words: the littlest virtuoso

100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#69 

The prompt ~ Bah Humbug!



The Littlest Virtuoso

From the moment the little bug had finished his metamorphosis, he had loved to hum.  In his short time on earth he had learned to hum the many different melodies he had been exposed to.  Such musical masterpieces as Handel’s Messiah, or Debussy’s Clair de lune, were happily hummed in perfect pitch.

One day when visiting a lovely nearby garden, he landed on a fragrant rose.  Becoming drunk off its lovely fragrance he began to hum loudly and most contentedly.

The gardener happened by and noticing him there, reached out to squish him.

“Bah, you Humbug!” He muttered with satisfaction.
