This story was inspired by my friend Jane who had a shocking experience of her own.

Once upon a time there was a little Beetle Bug, she was just a regular beetle bug, nothing special about her. She would play in the yard everyday having fun with her friends.

One day it began to rain and Beetle Bug found a branch in a tree where she could hide from the rain, as she waited she fell asleep.

Beetle Bug heard a loud bang which woke her up and threw her out of the tree. She landed on the ground just under the tree. She was so stunned she didn't know what had happened to her.

Suddenly her friends rushed over to see what had happened. Beetle Bug looked up to see all her friends staring at her in a strange way. Beetle Bug asked her friends, "What are all of you looking at?". Her friends took her by the hand and they all walked to a little puddle where Beetle Bug could see her reflection. Grasshopper said, "We are going to call you Glitter". Beetle Bug looked down into the puddle to see a very strange glow.

Beetle Bug was given light by the lighting that had hit her tree. Now her friends called her Glitter the lighting bug. From that day on Glitter had a light, all her friends could find her in the dark.

You too can see her playing in the yard on summer nights. Little flicker of light from Glitter the lighting bug, and her family of lighting bugs.
