Technically a prequel to a WIP novel of mine – since the boys featured here will grow into major characters of said novel – this little story was written four years ago during the last days before Christmas and edited while baking cookies. Befitting the style of other great Christmas stories (“The Gift of the Magi”, anyone?), it’s pretty simplistic in terms of action and more focused on the overall message at the end. Hope you enjoy it anyway.
(And if it sounds familiar – yes, I originally published it as a fanfiction four years ago.)
Oh, and the quote used at the end (in the note) is not mine; it’s taken from Winter Solstice Song by Lisa Thiel.
