Merry Christmas

   (3 reviews)
Sub-genres: Drama, General Romance

After years of self-deception, Dan had finally seen the proverbial light, thanks to some caring friends. Scott was a game-player, brazenly wreaking havoc with Dan's heart, and he had let him. Christmas be damned, it was time to reclaim his dignity, and accept that he deserved better... much better.

This isn't just a Christmas story.  It is a story for all seasons, all times, because most of us have common experiences.  What stands out most for me is courage and determination to leave a toxic relation and start a new life. This Christmas gift to himself is the start of a bright, promising New Year for the main character. There is no hate in this story, just understanding and determination to create a better future. This story stands on the realistic situation and dialogue created by Headstall. It's a great story that leaves me hoping that Dan, the main character, will get his reward for his courage and determination. For me this is a great New Years read.  Maybe before the resolutions are made?

Response from the author:

This is a story about what's possible to come as much as it is about the past. I agree it fits as a good read for New Year. Thanks for the great review, buddy. I hope others will see fit to give this short story a read. Cheers!

A sad story of the end of a relationship, we've all been there at some point, but if you're an optimist like me you will see the hint of future hope and the happiness that is possible. A story to be read and one to look beyond. A definite recommended read.

Oh just one warning though, have the kleenex ready.

Response from the author:
