Rose the Bug
Rhiannon Hemsted

Issue #24 (August 1983)

Once upon a time, there was a small bug. Her name was Rose. She lived with her Mom and Dad in a bush under a fruit tree. They had lots of plants around their home.

Rose was finished with school. Rose was nineteen years old. It was summer - nineteen years past. Rose had seven friends she liked to call on the telephone. She went to the beach, played in the sand, went to Disneyland, Marineland. At last came a sad sad sad day for Rose; her Mother and Father died.

One day Rose was walking far away from her home. A boy was playing near his house. He saw Rose. He picked her up with his hand. He wanted to kill her. He also thought it would be too hard the way she was. He ran inside and got the hammer and killed her, and that was the end of her life.
