Flies!! - Flash Fiction 300

It was over coffee that we decided to write a flash fiction story (<300 words) with the line 'A housefly was hovering at the bakery'  in it. However, the line need not verbatim as suggested. It will suffice if it conveys the meaning and this is the best I could come up with

A lone housefly was hovering at the bakery. This was his first posting and far away from his homeland. Born and brought up at the sewers that were full of deteriorating waste and degrading feces, he found this neat and clean bakery to his gentlemanly distaste. But nevertheless, it was his first posting and he had a point to prove. He was a guard now. A scout and a sleeper who will find out and inform about newer sources of food to survive, for the growing population to be supported, to help his kind to flourish and establish the world rule. He would be famous, history would record his most important contribution in establishing a world dominion of the flies and he will be their hero. All possible medals of Honor and valor (that could be awarded) would adore his chest. With this thought, he zoomed around. Then he smelt fresh baked bread. Probably some human or other sane living form would have taken an eternity to let the smell go. But the fly found it repelling; being the connoisseur he was of rich and exuberant pungent odor of the sewers, he resented the smell of the bread. He noticed that there was a source of infinite light from where the smell originated. Out of curiosity, it flew towards the light. Blindfolded, it crashed into the source and was electrocuted bhuzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Sitting in a deep dark corner near the switch board. A mega housefly was muttering in its hands free.

Experiment AZ3235 has also failed. Call a meeting of the head of all our clans. Our nemesis, the light source has arrived.”

this is true fiction
and i really enjoyed reading it.
like the housefly in your story even we the human beings have become the same. we cant digest pure unadulterated food. I am sure we will fall sick if we are to eat food prepared with utmost care and under hygienic conditions.
