“One day as the sun draped lazily on the horizon The Bitterness Of Time got restless and rode a leaf all the way to the Canyon Of Strife. Unbeknownst to Bitterness, Love happened to be playing in the canyon. Love was a wonderful thing, full of fun and more than a bit wispy.
“Why are you sad” said Love, who was known to be friends with Sympathy and on first name terms with Concern.
The Bitterness Of Time just grumped in that way he had, his face all sour and grey. Love just chuckled, the sound like a chorus of rainbows, singing in tune, like they always do.”
Love & Co will be making a visit to the world of a cheeky Aardvark very soon…
