It was like dipping your hoof into a pool to test the temperature, only to find that the water had been replaced with bees. You immediately think ‘Oh dear Celestia—-bees!’ but at the same time, you don’t dare yank your hoof back for fear of disturbing them. Then, they start crawling up your hoof, but they’re just being nice, so you give a little awkward laugh of pure terror as goosebumps run up your arm and you stare in morbid fascination, all the while thinking ‘bees bees bees’ as you slowly pull your hoof back and the bees slowly leave your hoof, dropping in clumps or flying off to who knows where, until you can finally clutch your hoof to your chest-—bee free—-and assure yourself that the experience is over.
