Adam had forgotten one of the most important lessons that the bees teach: only sting when necessary, for it can do more damage to you than your target.

He could go home. They would forgive and accept him.
Tempting as it was, he didn’t belong there. He had gone rogue, and a rogue beekeeper he would remain. He would make up for his mistake.
But he needed allies.
He needed bees.
He walked into the woods.
