"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.

Johnathan Brandon has spent every Winter Solstice alone. And each year his crazy college roommate sends him a Christmas present. This year said present comes with a set of instructions. It’s a mini figurine of a bare-chested Santa. To activate the tiny Santa he needs to make a wish at the first strike of midnight on Winter Solstice. At the last strike of midnight, Johnathan blinks and finds himself on the floor in front of a life-sized version of the statue. Bare chest, tented red velvet pants and all.
