The Girl Who Swallowed Bees

A young girl consumed by bitterness decides to take drastic and irredeemable measures to put an end to her continual suffering. After running through a number of darkly humorous options for her demise she settles on the terribly romantic "death by swallowing bees". Intent on her mission, she sets off for the woods where "bees are said to hide". There, in the shade of an impossibly beautiful oak, she disturbs a hive only to discover, much to her amazement, the bees have other plans for her and for her bitter heart.
