It’s Froggie time!

for Friday Fictioneers.




I was in the library looking for something to read.   Spotting a book I fancied, I took hold of it, but wouldn’t move.   I pulled, it pulled back!  I heaved. It heaved.  Suddenly it stopped resisting and I flew backward, landing the floor.

I peered under the bottom shelf and spotted a pretty pair of ankles.  I clambered to my feet, straightened my glasses and peeped through the gap on the shelf.  Looking back at me were the sweetest blue eyes I’d ever seen.  ‘Hello, I’m Paige’ said a cute little voice. 

We agreed to share the book and so started a new chapter in our lives. 




Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and CEAyr for the photo.

Prod the frog to join in the fun!

    Oh Keith,

    This story (and the frog) are both adorable. I can’t help thinking of the old Hollies song “Bus Stop” but instead of sharing an umbrella these two are sharing a book. Love it.

      Thanks for reminding me of that great song! I see it’s Froggies turn for the umbrella over at your place this week!

      Me? Actually I was a little outside my comfort zone when writing this! Cheers Susan

    Love it! Reminds me of a very cute young gentleman that I met at the library. We dated for a long time (a few months) back then. 🙂 ❤

    Who needs a book, when you have Paige? May be Paige will read the book to you, if you are nice!

    Lovely and true. the library is full of romance and adventure – lucky he wasn’t in the horror section.

    This one made me smile. There’s nothing better than a beautiful woman with a book.

    Well, the mystery was solved in a most romantic way. I loved this story, Keith. I also love the bookworm frog. He seems to have brought some romance flies with him for a snack. 🙂 — Suzanne

    Just wonderful! A quirky encounter that led to an astonishing future of contentment! This is one fall which would forever be etched in the mind of the ‘fallen!’

    What a great way to meet your soulmate. Over a tug of war on your favourite book. Now that’s common interest.
