He had Holly for Christmas by Dana Littlejohn



Running away from her problems isn’t something that RaKeesha Holly Black usually does, but this problem couldn’t be worked out unless it was out of sight out of mind. Little did she know that while she was hiding out in the cabin in Vermont licking her wounds that a snow storm would trap for her just what the doctor ordered for her healing to begin.


Holly wrapped the towel around her and walked to her bedroom. Inside the coffee table from the living room was beside her bed with a small smorgasbord upon it. Seeing and smelling the food she realized she was hungry. She dressed in jeans and a sweat shirt then ate as if she hadn’t for days. Under the glass of juice was another note. Smiling and giggling to herself she picked it up.

Now that you are fed and relaxed,
come to me when you are ready and we will
spend our first Christmas together, certainly not our last.

She finished her juice and took a deep breath not knowing what to expect when she went in to the living room. When she reached the living room she poked her head into the room to see Logan on the couch sketching away. He looked up from his book and smiled.

“Hey, sweetie.” He crossed the room to her and took her in his arms lifting her with his kiss. “Merry Christmas.”

Again she was dizzy from his kisses. “Merry Christmas.”

“How do you feel?”

“I feel great, Logan. Umm, thank you for everything. It was wonderful.”

“You’re welcome, but you don’t have to thank me for what I do for you. I want to do these things for you. I want you to understand that what makes you happy and makes you feel good is what I want to do for you.” He pulled over to the couch and into his lap. “How can I get that across to you?”

“I don’t know, Logan. I guess I’m just not used to that.”

“Well, I’ll just have to get you used to it. I looked up the weather and it looks like they will have the roads clear for us to leave tomorrow. So, I want today to be the first day of our forever. Today is the first of many days that I will dedicate to your happiness if you let me.”
