STORY IDEA #315: Men of Bees

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#315: The Men Of Bees

Long in the future. Post-
apoc. People are living in small communities.

One small township --
Kaybel -- has a perimeter wall, and beyond that lies a river.

Legend has it in the town that one should never cross the river, for that is the end of the earth, and all who've crossed have disappeared.

There are others though, on the other side of the river. Odd looking people who walk in smoke and hum like bees.

"Don't look at them," the
A young girl goes to the river and sees one of the men of bees. It lures her and she falls in the river and is dragged downstream. Maybe she has to find her way home through a man-sized bee-hive? I have no idea lol.
Kaybel town-folk say. "For they will take your eyes and boil them into a syrup."
