Story for Christmas
Story on Facebook
There was an advertisement on my Facebook page for a short story. Generally, I don't bother looking at the "sponsored" items, usually I am not interested but this was for a story and a free story at that! Even more, it was a Christmas story AND it had made someone cry!
So I read it
It was a short story, not flash fiction but nevertheless a short story about a little boy of 10 years old, called Oscar Oliver, whose Mum was not there for Christmas and whose absence had made a giant hole in his life.
Because it was free to read, I was prepared for poor writing, spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes etc., but NO! It was a well crafted story and a joy to read. It started out sad but it ended joyfully and that's all I will say because if you want any more - read it yourself! http://mark-haysom.co.uk/theblog/
ChristmasMemories (They are not my Christmas memories but I think Oscar Oliver's Christmas memories deserve a place here.)
