“This pattern begun down the iris’s center of the blade, right in the inflorescence. Somewhere between its symmetrical six-lobed flowers. The pattern was adorned with consistent veining and small dots. In the centre of the blade it had a beard full with tiny insects that were crawling around the magnificent, purple flower. The queen bee is assigned with a challenge – to solve the most complex math task that has ever existed.”
