Mark wasn't sure what woke him, but the faint lights that shone into the hallway brought him to instant wakefulness. Christmas fucking morning and he had intruders in the house. Well, the bastards would get a rude awakening.
Mark didn't celebrate Christmas, hadn't since the accident had robbed him off everyone he held dear, so there was nothing to steal from under his tree. He hadn't put one up in years. What was the point of it all?
Grabbing the baseball bat he kept by his bed he crept down the hallway and yanked the door open, ready to do some damage, but he froze instead.
It couldn't be. Christmas fairies didn't exist. There was no fucking magic, yet here, right in front of his eyes, a naked, beautiful woman danced around a tree in his living room—a tree that shouldn't be there.
She placed a glowing star on top, and then danced toward him, her laughter like Christmas music in his ear. Feather light caresses touched his skin and melted away the frozen layers surrounding his heart.
She disappeared with a whisper of a kiss and a promise in the air.
"Time to live again, Mark. Merry Christmas."
