‘If you wished to be loved,
Love!’

“Hey!” yells the angry Fly furiously at Bumblebee, who flies happily humming around from flower to flower. “Watch out!” The near-collision causes them to simultaneously fall into the soft heart of the flower. “Can’t you watch out where you’re going?” he shouts in a nasty way.

“S-s-sorry,” Bumblebee stammers, startled. “I didn’t see you.”
But then Bumblebee smiles at the angry looking Fly. “Bad day?”
Fly grumbles: “Grmpf. You can say that! I get chased away or hit on the head with a newspaper. I’m not welcome anywhere.”

Bumblebee smiles: “Maybe you should try to smile more often.”
Why would he? There is nothing to smile about in his live. But because Bumblebee is waiting for a smile he tries to pull the left corner of his mouth up. “Yes!” exclaims Bumblebee enthusiastically. “Now sing with me.

LalalaaaalaBoemBoemlaaala…” Fly first rolls with his eyes but then begins to hum softly. Suddenly his his foot starts to tap to the beat. His fat bum starts to shake from left to right and he hears himself singing along very loudly: “LalalaaaalaBoemBoemlaaala…”

Frome everywhere little bugs come flying, all singing and dancing. Bumblebee winks at Vlieg: “If you wished to be loved, love!”
