Christmas Season Cuddles

"It's snowing out," Enid said as she sat up in bed. Her bare back was covered in goosebumps thanks to the bedroom window Carl had left open the previous night.


She turned around and a smile spread across her pale face when she saw him slowly waking up. His eye fluttered and he raised his palm to his eye and rubbed the sleep out of it.

She'd never get over how adorable he looked when he first woke up and she'd seen it every morning for the last few months.

Alexandria was flourishing and so was their relationship. It was friendship. It was happiness. It was love. If you asked either one of them whether or not they thought it possible to find true love at barely sixteen they'd both blush and nod shyly.

They were in love.

"It's snowing out."

"Really?" he asked as he sat up in bed.

"Yeah…my mom used to say that the first snowfall was the beginning on the Christmas season." Enid said.

"I can't remember the last time I've actually had snow during Christmas. It didn't know a lot in Georgia." He chuckled.

Enid let out a breathy laugh, "It snowed all the time in Minnesota."

She felt his warm hand rest of the small of her back and her body warmed up almost instantly like a fire was crackling right behind her back.

She let out a squeal when Carl snaked his arm around her and pulled her back down beside him.

"What are you doing sport?" she giggled as she nuzzled his head in her hair and kissed the base of her neck. "Don't you want to go play in the snow?"

"Maybe later," he said, "Right now I want to enjoy some Christmas season cuddles. Unless you want to go play in the snow?"

She snuggled against him and rested her head on his chest. "Nah this is better…much better."

So as the snow fell to the ground, blanketing Alexandria in a thick layer of snow, Carl and Enid enjoyed so Christmas season cuddles.
