Christmas Lights...My Gift to You, Beloved Reader!

I just wrote a Christmas tale based on a real episode in my life - very short, a 3 minute read! It was published on ReadWave and immediately started "trending". Here's a screen shot of the title page:


And here's the beginning of the story:

"I banged on the door like mad. My parents were in there, in the big room where we never went, the room reserved for guests, and I wanted to be with them. Why didn’t they let me in? Brita tried to stop me but I wouldn’t listen to her. I banged harder. 

Dad stuck his head out, he was frowning. “Will you stop that?” he yelled. “Now wait, like a good little girl.” And he slammed the door shut. 

Brita took my hand and pulled me back. I could feel the tears welling up. She kneeled down and smiled. I loved her kind blue eyes and the brown curls of her hair that let her ears stick out. She was the first person I saw in the morning and the last at night. She gave me my breakfast porridge and tucked me in bed...."
