The lights of the tree cast magic across their faces. She lent forward.
She passed him a present. Beautifully wrapped in gold paper, and finished with a ribbon and bow. Small but perfect.
“I thought we said..”
“We did. But its Christmas.”
He held it in front of him, and looked across to her shoulder before starting to open the paper. Carefully, keeping the moment going.
Inside, a smart black box. He could feel just the weight of the card.
“What is it?”
He lifted the lid.
“I don’t understand?”
“Its like all the love you’ve given me.”
She looked back to the tree.
