‘Do you think it is a party?’
‘Don’t know, don’t care’.
‘I see some balloons. Quite colorful ones too’.
‘I said, I don’t care. Even if there is one, why would they let strangers in? We are simple folk, not invited, nor dressed properly.’
‘There is food for sure and warm fire too’ rumbled a mumble. ‘I hear some music. Welcome to the Hotel California…’
‘This is NOT California and we are not invited!’
‘But, Jim; It’s Xmas’.
With a pregnant pause, Jim led his sister to the lodge. A big smile, a bear hug reinforced his sister’s trust.

About asarpota

Like to fly, but at the same time, quite on the ground, and do tend to be realistic. Very passionate about what I believe in and do, no patience with idiots, not a perfectionist, but trying to come close to it.... Not a nerd btw, value my friends very much, can criticize and have the b***s to take it on my chin. A spade is a spade!!!

    Such a hopeful and uplifting story. Although… by bringing the music into the picture, you still have all the options, because we don’t know what happens once they’re inside. 🙂

    Good that they weren’t kicked to the curb. That’s usually the case, not all are that welcoming. Enjoyed the optimism. 🙂
