Christmas Morning, by Zane Castillo

(F.F.F. Website Story)

Michael shivered as he trudged through the snow. He had worked a long shift on Christmas Eve that extended into the early morning. A loud shriek caused him to turn his head sharply to the sound. Through the window of a house, children raced into a living room. They began to ecstatically open gifts, with wrapping paper flying everywhere. Shouts of delight and wonder reached Michael’s ears, as the children showed their toys to one another. He began to walk again but at a faster pace, as he thought about his family opening their gifts and missing their joyful reactions.
