A Wish Upon A Christmas Village
Sort of rockstar, Hunter Harris, is returning home for the holidays. Does it count if you play guitar for an indie, adult contemporary, hipster band that only soccer moms listen to? Maybe rockstar is a bit of a stretch, but after calling it quits and leaving life on the road, he can finally spend Christmas with his family. Ah, the joys of being a normy. Buying presents for people you don’t know, dealing with your neurotic parents who think they know best even though they want you to become a freakin’ cart boy while you attend classes at the local university, meeting your eighteen and a half nieces and nephews for the first time. If you were wondering, the half is because some of them belong to new boyfriends who haven’t wifed up your sister yet. May Santa have mercy on their souls.
He’s looking forward to all of it, even the same ten Christmas songs playing at the mall being sung by different artists. Tradition doesn’t seem so bad to someone who’s been missing out on it for years, at least you know what to expect. What Hunter doesn’t expect is to run into an old flame, the flame that got away, but never died out.
Kellie Bradford hasn’t changed a bit, she’s even with the same tool she dated in high school. That’s not entirely true, he’s not a tool, he’s the perfect fiancé, at least he was before the accident. Since then, Kellie’s become a mother to an overgrown man child who plays video games all day and night, doesn’t leave the house, doesn’t cook, doesn’t clean and by the time you’re reading this, will probably want her to change his diaper. Just to be clear, he doesn’t actually wear a diaper, his injury wasn’t that bad but you get the point. All she wants is the man she loved. And all he wants is a kid, times seven, a whole litter of them running around for her to take care of while he sits around with his thumbs up his… well, let’s face it, they’ll be glued to his controller.
She’s not looking forward to any of it. This isn’t the life she expected. But how can she leave this perfect little Christmas village she’s built for herself where everything will surely work out in the end? How can she suppress the feelings she’s ignored for years when the one who got away comes strolling back into town, more dreamy than ever?
Let the holiday festivities begin.
