December 24th

The next day on the bus to my folks’ place, I see a pair of gumboots across the aisle. They’re cranberry red with a pattern of black spades and belong to a beautiful woman with auburn curls.

Before I can stop myself I say, “I like your boots.”

She looks up as a soft smile forms on her face and begins to speak.
