“Most humans flatten poor innocent insects, you know,” said a tiny, feminine voice in a crystalline, almost choral, tone.
“I know. It’s a crying shame, for none of them mean a shred of harm; except wasps, of course.” Harriet looked all over the lily flowers again. The owner of the voice was still hidden in the foliage.
The little voice giggled. “Wasps are always in a bad mood. I tried to cheer some of them up once. You should have heard the rude words they called me. It was enough to make my ears curl.”
“I’m not surprised, rotten little devils.” The old lady sat back, placing her hands in her lap. She decided to stop looking for the owner of the voice in her flowers, realising she would show herself when she was ready. “I’m Harriet, do you have a name?”
“They call me Buttercup Lily.”
