4.5 heartwarming Christmas stars
Very sweet and adorable story about the mourning Jamie and Alex who helps him to heal.
“I don’t want you to.” Jamie pushed away, smacked at Alex’s hands when he reached for him. “I’ll see you on Monday.”
Alex sighed, patted his hands together, blowing on them like he was warming his fingers. Buying time, Jamie thought.
“I’m not leaving you alone on Christmas Eve.” Alex shrugged. “I’ve been looking forward to tonight for over a month, planning dinner and picking the perfect gift for you.” He held a hand up when Jamie opened his mouth. “I’m smart enough to see plans have changed. But if you need to be here, I need to be with you. We both stay.”
