Roses

Prompt: The story of a flower that has made men mad

Ezra frowned as he glanced around at the roses that filled the garden. He glanced at the chief of staff and gave him a tight smile. “There’s a story on Shynia,” he said.

“Oh?”

“If you stare into the petals of a rose, you lose your mind,” he said, nodding.

The chief of staff blinked. Then, he looked chagrined. “It’s… supposed to be a sort of cozy meeting place.”

“I know,” Ezra said. He smiled and shrugged. “Just thought I’d mention it, because… well, it might not be a good place to meet with Shynians.”

“No, I suppose not.”
