"be careful what you wish for"
Johnathon Brandon doesn't celebrate Christmas, instead he
celebrates the Winter Solstice. Since College he's spent
every one of them alone. This year his old college roommate
sends him a gift, like every other year. Only this gift is
different, it's a mini figurine of a hot looking Santa,
with instructions. At the first strike of Midnight on
Winter Solstice make a wish. Johnathon figures what could
go wrong and makes his wish.
After the wish is made, suddenly Nickolas appears. Nickolas
is a sex demon sent to make Johnathon's wish come true. Can
Johnathon trust this is real and if it is real will he like
the outcome of the wish?
Leila Brown's short story Gingersnaps: Summoning
gives the reader a sense of what happens when you don't
word your wishes correctly. You just may get exactly what
you wished for. An interesting short story that brings a
rougher but still very real side to BDSM. It also shows
that no time matters to the magic of Christmas.
