The mouse with a house on the River Louse, was walking in a field one day. He had his head down, nose buried in a stack of hay.
He was searching for some small sticks to take back to his home; his house on the River Louse.
Now that Winter was settling in, Mr Mouse wanted to light a fire and needed some sticks to form the pyre.
Mr Mouse had his head down and therefore not looking where he was going.
Along came a lady Mouse called Hilda with a bag full of shopping. She was happy and singing and dancing, twirling and hopping.
Hilda was unaware of the Mouse with a house on the River Louse being in the vicinity. She was feeling hopeful, full of sanguinity.
Mr Mouse still head down looking for sticks didn’t realise Hilda was around. He had his nose firmly pointing to the ground.
Both mice continued with their missions. Oblivious to each other and the weather conditions .
Mr Mouse, head down turned to his left, Hilda twirling and hopping turned to her right. Suddenly they clashed and caused each other such a fright. Hilda clutched Mr Mouse very tight.
Mr Mouse apologised and pulled Hilda up off the floor. He offered to show Hilda to his front door, Mr Mouse was very proud of his house on the River Louse.
The two mice had afternoon tea and sat warming themselves by the fire. Soon it was time for Hilda to retire to her own home but they made plans to meet the very next day.
This time Mr Mouse would not have his nose in the hay. They would walk and talk and have plenty to say. Until the light faded from the day and the Moon came out to play.
In less than 2 months they had fallen in love and were married on the river by a dainty turtle dove.
Now they were together night and day. Mr Mouse still searched for sticks with his nose in the hay.
Hilda still did the shopping all the while twirling, dancing and hopping
Together they had 12 children of their own. Now they always had company, and neither ever felt alone.
I have written several stories about the mouse with a house on the river louse and his friends and thought it would be fun to write an episode where he meets his wife.
I hope you enjoy.
