Friday Fictioneers: Plant Smuggler


My friend, Bobby, grows the coolest plants in this garden. There was one particular plant I especially like. It’s the strangest looking plant. I can’t describe it other than it looks a little like a virus. I tried to search for the name on my phone but my phone wouldn’t cooperate.

“What is this call?” I asked Bobby once. “I’ve never seen flowers look like this.”

“If I tell you, promise me you won’t tell anyone?” I nodded. “I grew it from a cutting I smuggled from Australia.”

“What?” I shrieked.

“Shh! Don’t broadcast it.” Can you even do that?

Side note: after doing a picture search on Google, I discovered this is Hakea teretifolia, a Australian native plant.
