The Gift

She planted a tender kiss on his forehead and looked around furtively before placing the bundle at the steps.   

She hoped he’d be well looked after.  

The door was answered by a little girl.

She squealed in delight at the cute puppy. The card read, “Merry Christmas. Hope you like the gift. Love, secret Santa”


My take for the 55 word fiction theme 'that tender kiss...' for marathon bloggers. This is a week long attempt at 55-ers.


Would love to hear from you :-)
