FFfAW-The Green Planet

When they landed on the planet, Nesbulia, they noticed that green cocoon looking things hung everywhere they could see.

“Look man, this is really creeping me out. There are all these green cocoon things.” Martin pinched his face as he said it.

Luther stopped suddenly and answered Martin, “Maybe these green cocoon things are their homes.”

Both men proceeded cautiously toward the green cocoons.

Suddenly, a deafening noise sounded and they both stopped in their tracks.

“Who's there?” Demanded a voice from the loud speaker.

“We are friendly people here to meet our planet's neighbors.”

“Stop where you are and go no further!”

Two small men stepped out of the cocoons and walked over to the men.

“We don't have any neighbors.”

The green men reached out their hands in what seemed to be a gesture to shake hands. The men reached out their hands to shake and suddenly they were transformed into inhabitants of green cocoons.

Luther and Martin looked at each other noting that the other had become a beautiful shade of green.”

FFfAW – The Letter

Dear Mother,

I have arrived in India and will begin my journey to see the world. Our first stop was in a small village with only about 400 residents (and I think that included the goats). I was greeted by a lovely couple who are also from America, Anna and Ross. They invited us to stay in their home and cooked us a wonderful meal. I do love Indian food!

I have fallen in love with one of the young men who is on this journey with me. His name is Peter and we are getting married tomorrow. Don't worry mother, you would love him!

Your Loving Daughter,

Emma

FFfAW – Staying Safe

My husband works at the Texaco station near Bangle Bay beach and we only live 3 blocks from there. Because of that my husband could walk to work and leave me with our one and only car to be able to run errands with.

Yesterday, as he was walking to work someone shot at him. He dove into bushes nearby and avoided being hit. Someone up the road from his location was hit and is in the hospital in critical condition.

I will be waking up at 5:00 am from now on and driving him to work.

It's worth it.

FFfAW – Waiting at the Dock

Each day right before sundown I go to the dock and wait for my love that left two years ago on a naval mission.

I wait for several hours and leave once the sun has set, determined to return the next day and wait for his homecoming.

My heart skips a beat when a naval ship comes in and my heart sinks when I learn that it isn't his ship.

I won't give up because I know he will return. My heart assures me that he will return.

I will come to the dock and wait. Wait for my love.

FFfAW – Chess Champ

Joey has always been such a brilliant child so it didn't surprise me when he wanted to learn chess. He spent hours playing chess while he was learning the game.

It also didn't surprise me when he wanted to go to the town center and have a match with one of the chess champs. I figured, he will lose but it will be a good learning experience.

Saturday morning I took Joey to the town center and he went up to one of the chess champs and asked for a match. The champ grinned and told him to take a seat.

Joey became fidgety in his seat trying to outsmart the champ. After several hours, the chess champ won the match.

Surprisingly, Joey wasn't upset at all. He told me,

“Mom, I'm going to be sitting out there one day.” And I knew in my heart that he would be.

Joey is now one of the chess champs that sits in the town center. No one has beat him yet.

FFfAW – The Crisis

As soon as Megan hung up the phone, she felt the tears coming. Trying to escape from the pain in her heart, she ran toward the bridge.

“I will end it. I can't live my life without him,” she gasped, trying desperately to regain her breath through the huge lump in her throat.

She came to the bridge and threw herself over the edge.

“I can't live without you!” she cried.

About that time a man was walking by and caught the hem of her jacket.

“What the hell do you think you are doing? he screamed at her.

“I can't… I can't live without him.”

“Live without who?”

“The man I am in love with.”

“Yes, you can and you WILL live without him!”

“Who the hell do you think you are?” Megan asked.

“I am Nolan.”

Megan looked over the edge of the bridge and cried,

“Samuel, You bastard! You don't deserve me!”

Megan forgot about Samuel and lived happily ever after with her new love, Nolan.

No Safe Place to Park – FFfAW

Carolyn parked her SUV at her boyfriend's house while they went on an European vacation. She felt it would be safe there and be undisturbed. But she was wrong.

Robbers broke into the house and stole the computers, laptops, televisions, and other electronic equipment, along with other valuables.

When they came back from vacation, Ray found his home burglarized and stripped of all his valuables. Carolyn found her SUV gone. The robbers had used her vehicle to haul all the equipment off.

The SUV was found in another city stripped of everything.

So much for a safe place to park!
