Red Rose On A Snowy Bench

Hondrea sat on a bench in the snow storm. As she watched the flakes flutter by wonder filled her mind.

She thought about the notes that had been left in her locker, admiring her and telling her how lucky she is. The last one had said, “Meet me in the school parking lot on one of the benches.”

She saw someone come towards her. Her heart began to thump as he sat and turned to her.

It was Gregory. He was the smartest guy in her class and she had, had a crush on him for a while now. He handed her a red rose and asked, “Can I walk you home?”

She dropped the rose and took his hand. When she looked back all she could see was the red rose on a snowy bench.


Look Out

The blue-ringed octopus is extremely toxic. Being bit by this thing would be a disaster considering that there is no anti-venom. As upsetting as that is there is a chance not to get bit if you know what to look for.

Brown and small you would think nothing would tip you off but there is something quite significant about it. When made mad this octopus’s rings begin to glow blue. That is the warning sign.

If you do get bit because you didn’t see it telling you to back off you had better get to the closest hospital because its venom is fatal. You can make it if you do but instead of taking that chance just look out for the glowing blue rings.
