618. the tortoises’ reconciliation

mr tortoise came to ms tortoise and said, “can we have a temporary togetherness in the middle of our temporary separation?”

ms tortoise said, “yes, but only for a moment.”

but as they snuggled up together, and the snow began to fall on the village, they remembered old times and, for the first time in awhile, kept warm with each other, instead of inside themselves.

congratulate the tortoise!
