Christmas in the Cabin by Sofia T Summers
Driving home for Christmas, I couldn’t outrun the snow or Nick Wallace.
I had travelled the world, but nothing prepared me for that fateful night in his cabin…
Not even for the baby girl who arrived eight months later.
There were secrets pride urged me to keep.
Nick never learned about his daughter, our daughter,
And I kept my word that my father would never know what we did.
Their friendship didn’t need to be shattered like all my hopes.
Now, fate is calling me back home for an extended holiday season.
There will be no quick getaway this time.
People say that time heals all wounds, but what can an all-consuming kiss do?
Everything always looks better under the glow of holiday lights,
But will the harsh light of reality be the end of everything I once craved from Nick?
This Christmas, will I finally stop running?
