dashing through the no

Summersweet Island #3

‘Twas the week before Christmas and all through Summersweet,

Tess Powell was annoyed and wanted to retreat.

With a BIC in her hand and a frown on her face,

everyone knew she needed a break from this place.

Wanting the holiday to be nothing but the best,

Bodhi took his girlfriend to the mountains to rest.

While visions of fire happily danced in Tess’s head,

soon she would see she had everything to dread.

Crying kids, singing hippos, and a stalker with a van,

definitely wasn’t part of Bodhi’s evacuation plan.

But all he wanted for Christmas was for her to say yes,

to the question he kept asking with zero finesse.

With some help from new friends and their holiday cheer,

Tess and Bodhi get much more

than they asked Santa for this year.
