During Christmastime!

By Laraine Smith All Rights Reserved ©

Fantasy / Romance


Inspiration came from both Dennis DeYoung and the YouTube video "Nena's Christmas Village" by Ronald Walsh.

Chapter 1

During Christmastime, Jeffrey and his family enjoyed a train ride around the Christmas tree at the square! They also went ice-skating! They saw the houses around them! They seemingly glowed with magical candlelight! Seeing this especially touched the hearts of Jeffrey and Lilly Louise! The two shared a kiss on the lips, which brought smiles to the faces of their two kids Baxter and Sandy Sue!

While they were walking around town, Jeffrey and his family spotted a ballroom! They heard and saw couples dancing to Christmas music! All of their hearts started melting! Lilly Louise and Jeffrey themselves became inspired to start waltzing to this music! For Lilly Louise, this brought back memories of when she and Jeffrey danced together on their wedding day! This also helped her remember how they would dance together on their anniversaries! Seeing their parents dancing together brought more smiles to the faces of Baxter and Sandy Sue!

That night, a full Christmas Moon came out over the square! Jeffery and his family were able to spot Saint Nicholas and his reindeer waving to them! They all waved to him back! They all knew that this would be a truly merry Christmas!

Nanasha: I thought I'd written a comment on this story, but for some reason, I guess it didn't go through. Anyway, so this story is intensely addictive.

Ro-Ange Olson: This is such a different romance story. I loved it. The book was very long and could be split into 2-3 books in my opinion, but I'd hate to have to wait to read the next part too.
