Wherever She Went, Love Followed

She was so lovely!

He loved her.

She did not know.

Even if she did, would she have cared or reciprocated?


She cared for her books.

They were her love.

Even he loved to chew on books.


Once he had tried making his presence felt.

She shrieked.

Even he got startled!

When she decided to move homes, even he decided to make a move.

He sneaked in with her books.

They always gave him comfort and nourishment.

When she would unpack that box and set her books on the new shelves, he, the bookworm, would also get a new place.

  2. Dear Anita,

    Now there's a true bookworm. Cute



  3. Have never seen a non-human bookworm but I've seen book mites.

  4. Darn those bookworms! This was a fun story.

  5. This was fun!

  6. This is Granonine. At first I thought, "Mouse." Then I realized it was a bookworm, and had to laugh at the ingenuous use of the little creature :)

  7. fun read. i love your sense of humor.

  8. James McEwan. I enjoyed the humour and the easy flow of the story. At first I thought 'mouse', but yes, bookworm is perfect.

  9. Bookworm! Great idea. And I love how you explained this one! Cute. Nicely done Solothefirst

  10. I have a little love who likes to chew on books. It's her "You're not paying enough attention to me." We had to put a board along the bottom two rows of the bookshelf. I love the way this played out. It almost felt like a riddle creeping toward a conclusion.

  11. I hope no books were hurt. Cute tale. I enjoyed it immensely.

  12. Oh, I was expecting a rat. So glad it was just a bookwork. Great fun!

  13. I love this love story. At first I thought it was a ghost and was confused at eating the books. But a bookworm, that’s clever!


Your words mean a lot to me.
