Noel’s “big girl bed” was my old unfinished futon bed from New York. Splashes of food, drinks, and who-knew-what that had soaked into the bare wood at its foot, ensuring the need for an oversized throw to cover it.

“Read Daddy!” she excitedly urged without whining or offering anything but love for our time together.

Author’s Note:
 
Hi All,

I know this is entered into the Christmas Contest, but it is not specially written for it. It is penned as a part of the ongoing saga of Day’s circle and life. This chapter, unfortunately has some dark elements in it. I know that not everyone likes that type of content, but it is an important part of the overall evolving story.

I just wanted to warn everyone that there is discussion of suicide. I played with ways of trying to signal the content for people to skip over, if so desired. But it seemed to mess with the story, too much.

I hope that fans of the storyline can bring themselves to go ahead and read the chapter—it will make the happier chapters that are coming (I promise!) that much sweeter.

HUGS!

The Twelve Dreams of Christmas

[24th December 2011, Helmand Province, Afghanistan]

The special forces soldier spoke quietly into his radio,
“Leopard One to Lion, come in please?”

“Lion receiving,” came the reply.

“Leopard One is waiting for the Antelopes at 951.”

“Roger Leopard One. Lion out.”

The radio went dead.

The soldier shifted his position slightly and peered out into the gathering doom of Christmas Eve.

Corrected Christmas Story

I HAD to repost a corrected version of my Christmas Dreams Contest story (It's Love). It's not materially different, but I put an embarrassingly sloppy version out before that really shouldn't be out there to tarnish this wonderful site.

Apologies again! There is little reason to re-read it... but new readers should have a slightly less distracting piece to (hopefully) enjoy.

Hugs... and Apologies... and Merry Christmas!
