I usually just hang out with my many friends and do what they do: nothing much. We usually just stand around soaking up the breeze, looking pretty (although some might say that's questionable). But beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

What I do best, though, is eat. Fortunately, I have a great metabolism (if that's what you want to call it), and it's an all-meat diet. It's actually a staple for me and my friends. One good catch and I'm satisfied for ten days tops. My name is Dionaea Muscipula, but you can call me Venus Flytrap.

    Love it, Michael. Took me a bit by surprise as I had expected something from the animal kingdom. Nice one!

    Yes, me too, I had no idea whether it was animal or something from a horror story. Turned out it was neither. Brilliantly done.

    Thank Drew's "Dead Eyes Still Shine" as the inspiration for this one.

    Really liked this. I too thought it was heading towards "horror" - great ending.
