If on a Yuletide morn, a reader

Chapter Text

Of course nothing is attached. Of course the story ends there. You know better than to expect closure at this point.

You hear your computer chime; you have a new email. Perhaps it is from your recipient, writing to thank you for telling the story they have always wanted. Or your friend, with another link or a reply to your original tale. Or Nigerian spam. Perhaps it is feedback from another reader, someone random, letting you know that you have written the story they did not know they wanted until they read it.

You are tempted to check, but you put it off for just a bit longer. After all, you need to finish reading your Yuletide story.
