Scene: Then There Were None

 

[Begin scene]

Dangling from the eaves of a small house is a paper bundle of empty pockets…

The whites, grays, and browns of the papery substance arranged in a honeycomb like pattern…

Once home to a thriving brood, this nest now lies dormant, abandoned…

For weeks the yellow and black wasps would emerge from the cells and continue to work on their elegant home…

As the weather turned, one by one they left, with a queen among the last to launch

And then there were none.

[End scene]
