Today, I thought I would write another short story in exactly #fiftywords. This is not an entry for the current challenge by @miniature-tiger, if you like 50 word stories please check out his current challenge, you can also find my entry to the current challenge (my story is called "Brat!") here

Early each morning he strolled through the woods, alone.
“I hug trees,” he said. “I can feel their energy.”
His wife - not a morning person - was unconvinced.
“Stay in bed. Cuddle me. Feel my energy.”
He smiled, shook his head and left
His wife - cheeks damp with tears - slept on.


You can read a follow up story "TreeToo" (written in less than 240 characters as part of zappl-fiction) here: https://steemit.com/zappl/@felt.buzz/-treetoo-an-original-work-of-zappl-fiction-in-less-than-240-characters-as-a-follow-up-to-my-tree-hugger-story

I have a collection of more 50 word stories on my page and some much longer ones (including one about an ancient god down on his luck living in modern times, and another one about a tiny UFO that lands in a garden)

I really appreciate comments and any support you can offer!

Thank you!
