Are we all feeling romantic on this lovely Valentine’s day? I sure hope so because I’m bringing you a slightly unconventional love story, complete with amputated limbs (sort of).
On one side of a tree lives lonely Jonathan. On the other side of the tree lives lonely Martha. Enter cupid’s arrow in the form of a juicy pear.
These two wacky worms decide to fight and end up knotted together. I guess you could describe them quite literally as inseparable. They learn to share and start to enjoy themselves until a hungry bird enters the picture and bites off their tails. In spite of being free to head off in separate directions, they decide to stay together because it’s just so much better that way!
A very sweet, if unexpected love story.
