Where have you been all of my life? Bug Night #6

There was a recognition. Each of them felt it immediately. Everyone is special to someone but this was a unique situation. The Bug Night-er and the insect looked at each other through their simple and compound eyes, respectively.

“I love your creeping welts,” said the Bug Night-er, “and your prolegs are divine.”

“I love that you didn’t think that I was an Empididae,” said the divine Athericidae, “So many people don’t take the time to appreciate my strongly segmented body and my lovely, strong colouration.”

“I see all that and more,” purred the Bug Night-er.

“Has anyone ever told you—that although you have only two—your legs are long and athletic?” asked the Athericidae.

“No one has ever taken the time to notice,” said the Bug Night-er with tears welling in his simple eyes. He had found his soul mate.

“What are you doing after Bug Night?” wheedled the Athericidae, “There’s some denatured alcohol left and we can turn the lab lights low…”
