Gory Rory Fangface Needs a Kiss



Gory Rory is having a TERRIBLE day, and the LAST thing he needs is a KISS.

Everything is going wrong for Gory Rory Fangface. First, he ran out of cereal and then his favourite jumper was in the wash and then it rained on the way to school. Does Gory Rory need a kiss?

No, he most certainly DOESN’T.

The day gets progressively worse; he’s forgotten his homework, it’s egg salad for lunch, and then mum is late for pick-up. A kiss perhaps?

NO WAY. On the way home it rains again, there’s homework to finish and the internet is down. Gory Rory has reached the end of his tether – it really has been the WORST DAY EVER. But sometimes... just sometimes... when you really really need them... kisses can make it all better.

A heartwarming story about the power of affection to lighten up even the darkest of days.
