Author’s note: This story was originally written to be an entry in this year’s Christmas story contest. Unfortunately, when I checked the rules, I discovered it doesn’t qualify because there are sex scenes between persons under eighteen years of age. I tried to think of some way to rewrite it, but the story line just won’t allow for that. So here’s my non-competitive Christmas story in its original form. Maybe next year I can come up with something a little more, um, appropriate.
