B is for Balance

Pardon the swearing. The sentiment fit.
Boistrous bullies bragged belligerently about beating up on Little Ben Brown, but Ben bravely bellowed. Bugs and bees buzzed. Birds brandished beaks. Beasts bounded, and suddenly Ben had backup. A bear bounced a ball, baring big teeth. A boar brayed, “Baratheon!” A baboon belted boulders. And an itty bitty bunny rabbit nibbled at a bloody pile of bones. The Bully boys backed away bowing because beastly brethren balance brutality.

The sentence, "Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo," is actually grammatically correct. Isn't that weird?

What have you taken on, girl! Your K, Q, X and Z posts should be quite a challenge. In fact all the letters are going to something to behold. Talk about taking on a Challenge and turning it into a bigger challenge!

You did well with B.

I am blown away, I mean super impressed. How do you do it? So many letter B words and they all work together to form a perfect and interesting piece of flash fiction. I've always admired writers who can produce quality flash fiction, but you take it to another level. I am amazed that you could take all those letter B words and produce a cohesive story that I enjoyed reading. That is creativity.. Well done.
