His Naughty List (#Wattys2016)
"You're on the naughty list." He says jokingly and I roll my eyes.
"Yeah but not on Santa's." He says his turquoise eyes brighter than city lights.
I drop the dish cloth and look up at him with my hands at my hips.
Hates the cold and doesn't know how to enjoy the holidays without criticizing how cheery, jolly and annoyingly peppy the world is this time of year.
Loves the snow and making people smile. He's a boyish jokester who loves to let go and have fun. Especially in the Christmas season.
So what happens when Clarity witnesses River walk in her mother's bakery and light the place up like he's the energy the place needs?
Is he more or less the energy that she needs as well?
River loves to make people smile.
..and the next person on his list is Clarity.
