FFfAW – Woody and Wanda

The newly married termite couple, Woody and Wanda gazed lovingly at their new home. Woody squeezed Wanda's hand and said,

“It's air conditioned just right. We will never get too hot.”

Wanda affectionately gave Woody a hug.

“We are so fortunate to have such a lovely home. Thank you so much Woody for making this possible for us.”

“Aww, think nothing of it. I worked hard for weeks building this home because I love you so much.”

“Yes, you certainly did! And I love you too!”

Wanda sighed,

“Do we really have to share it with millions of other termites?”

  1. Hi PJ,
    it’s early in the morning when I read this story.
    It is so sweet. It makes me smile ๐Ÿ™‚
    Wonderful imagination and this last line depicts feelings of love that Woody and Wanda have in their hearts for each other. I LOVE IT…

      • Hi PJ, sorry we didn’t talk earlier. I have been back in WP recently, not writing much but catching up with everyone ๐Ÿ˜ how have you been ? โ˜บ

        • It’s nice to have you back! I’m doing well. I haven’t been reading very many blogs because I am kinda burned out. I am keeping up with my flash fiction challenge and that’s about it. Are you through with school?

          • I hope you are keeping well. Your stories as I feel are still awesome as they used to be โ˜บ yes, I am still doing my masters, one more year left ๐Ÿ˜

          • Thank you Ady! I wish I could feel the same way about my stories. LOL! That’s wonderful you are getting your masters degree and you only have 1 year left! That is awesome!!

  2. Beautiful one, PJ. BTW, usually snakes like cobras make the termite hills as their homes. So, Woody and Wanda better watch out for new slithery roommates.

  3. You brought a wide smile to my face, PJ. This is an adorable story. I can imagine them having
    the exchange. The last line was the best. Sometimes, you don’t want to share just hold onto the precious peaceful moments together.
