    Normally, flowers and bees do not get along because bees take the flowers pollen, but this wasn't the case with Molly the flower and Billy the bee.   It didn't matter to them that flowers and bees weren't supposed to like each other all they knew is they had fun together! 
    One day another bee came along, his nick name was Terry the Terror.  Terry the Terror was always mean to Molly, he teased her saying that her petals were not as pretty as the other flowers and that she did not make as much pollen as the other flowers.  This upset Molly very much because she was such a sweet flower and got along with everyone.  Billy the bee was furious that Terry the Terror kept upsetting his friend, even after Molly had asked him nicely to please stop teasing her because he was hurting her feelings. 
    One day, Billy the bee decided he would give Terry the Terror a taste of his own medicine.   When Terry the Terror came  to tease Molly the next day Billy the bee was ready.  He asked some of his fellow bee friends to meet him near Molly because they were going to tease a bully.  When Terry the Terror showed up he noticed that some other bees were laughing in his direction and he didn't know why and it hurt his feelings.  Once Billy the bee realized that Terry was getting his feelings hurt he told his friends to stop. 
    Billy the bee explained to Terry the Terror that making fun of people was not so funny at all and it hurt peoples feelings.  Terry the Terror apologized to Molly and played with Molly and Billy for the rest of the day and found out that it wasn't so bad to have a flower as a friend.  Billy and Molly also discovered that after getting to know Terry the Terror that he wasn't such a terror after all.
