A Christmas trifle from Devon/Dee.

The holiday spirit has forsaken Simon Harris. A recent reminder of the man who used then left him sends lonely Simon on a glum visit to his club to while away a few hours. A breath of fresh air in the form of Christopher Andrews is about to enter his stale life.

Performer of many talents and faces, Christopher gained entrée into the club to win money at cards. Unfortunately, he’s losing. But the evening needn’t be a complete disappointment as he strikes up a friendship with a gentleman which ends in a bedroom.

Simon and Christopher enjoy a few hours of pleasure together, never expecting to see each other again, but Simon’s newfound resolution to change might just transform both their holidays.

A short story, which includes a brief excerpt. Simon and Christopher’s future will appear in our next short: Will and the Valentine Saint.

Story Review:

This was a very cute take on “A Christmas Carol.” I loved the characters and quickly connected with both Simon and Christopher. I loved the way they connected with each other and for such a short tale, I never once questioned their intimacy. This story was fun and emotional and highlighted the loving nature of Christmas time. I look forward to seeing more from these men in the next installment of this series.

Narration Review:

Cornell Collins did a fantastic job performing this story. His character voices were unique for each person and he really brought out the emotions this story contained. He captured the essence of Simon and Christopher and really brought out the best in this story. I am excited to listen to his rendition of the next tale in this series.
