Willow and Dell: A Love Story (Fun Monday)

I am hosting this week, and the assignment was to write the 1st paragraph of an unusual love story. I admit it was hard, but I am look forward to seeing the results.

Willow would never forget the day he arrived. He came in a large box. Normally when a new box comes, all she could think about was climbing in and exploring the dark recesses; however, when she saw his shiny coat, she was intrigued. They rubbed the thing in certain places and he opened up even further. She couldn't keep her cat eyes off of him. He had a glow about him, and purred strangely when petted, almost a rhythmic clicking. She had to get closer, to really, truly know him. He seemed to welcome her advances. Oh, yes, he was a keeper.

Thanks to all the participants make sure you check out their love stories:

I'm with Willow! It wouldn't be hard to fall in love with Laptop Dell--although studgy old stationary Dell is widdly jealous as I type this. He's threatening to shut down in a sulk? What must I do?

What a pair! Willow appears to be quite comfortable right there in Dell's lap.

Oh, Lord, how cute is that! Love how you gave subtle clues before you showed the picture!

swampy said...

What a cutie !

Thanks for hosting this week. I have to admit, I didn't have much time to spend on my Love Story, as you could tell...mostly just photos. But, at least I did try to follow your rules which is more than I usually do.

See you in the funny papers you silly monkey !

Sayre said...

Oh, how cute!

My story is not nearly as cute as yours - being spun out of weird hallucenogenic dreams... I finally got it up!

Woodlandmama said...

IamwhoIam- Her eyes are lovely, though they've changed color now that she's been growing.

Rayne-It's not as easy as it looks, but you're welcome to host if you want!

Mariposa- Thanks for the late entry. Rayne beat you to it).

Olive- Thanks for the entry. And welcome! We don't let her sit on his lap anymore, she's much bigger now.

Faye- It might be easier for ME to love Dell if he didn't come equiped with Vista!

Grace- glad you're having fun!

Lisachaos- That wass the bit of fiction. The laptop came first.

Alison- We like Willow too, sorry you can't have her (except maybe at 3 a.m.)

Gattina- Robot kittens how'd you guess?

Hootin' Anni, Sayre and {i} Post- Thanks!

Swampy- Oh Dear! Are you allergic?

Robin (PENSIEVE) said...

I started to go with a "traditional" love story, but everything I could think of sounded so conventional.

How fun that you chose the route you did! I love the piccha to go with your furrily sweet.

Thanks for hosting and for visiting my post already!
