Worms Can Be Brave by pome lover
    100 Word Dash Contest Winner 

Luther Lettuce looked up at the tomato vine. Tess Tomato, the beautiful object of his affection, was being attacked by a bird! If only I could move, he thought. He is devouring her. I am devastated!  

Finally, the bird flew up into a tree. Slowly, Tess turned. SHOCK! Her whole backside was gone.

Luther sent a mental SOS to Wilbur Worm, who chewed through Tess’s stem. She tumbled to the ground, landing beside Luther. Wrapping her in a lettuce leaf, he held her close.

Wilber inched away, trying to hide. Too late. He'd done his best.

The bird saw him.
