A 2017 Christmas Story.
This story, as it stands, was written in 2017 for Christmas. The first in various stories that will be coming as I post them up and play catch up on this site. Thank you for taking some time to read some fluffy little family story.
Mild warning: Talk of family dysfunction and mental illness. Nothing to up in your face, but discussed.
