This story is a response to the Challenge posted on Friday Fictioneers, which is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. A story inspired by the photo prompt, a beginning, middle and end in just 100 words or below, making every word count. Here goes my attempt, hope you guys like it.
That Christmas wish we all need
“Its Christmas…..but its just you and me dear…no one coming…”

I wanted to be a more desired friend…and here I am “with just you and me… on Christmas”.
Isn’t that a wish most of us need…
