“Becca honey, rise and shine! It’s Christmas, and we’ve got a plane to catch…” Gloria sang from the doorway. Becca yawned and stretched. “Your dad just got back, so c’mon downstairs and we’ll have a little breakfast and open presents.”
“Okay, I’ll be down in a minute,” Becca replied. She sat up on the edge of her bed and touched the necklace between her fingers. Gazing at her suitcase across the room, she wrapped her free arm around her middle. The last thirty-four and a half hours away from Caleb had taken a toll on her. At home, if she couldn’t take not seeing him, she could hope to catch a glimpse of him at the ice rink. But if she went to Florida─ that was it!

For the next thirty minutes they took turns opening presents. Becca was intrigued with the last one─ a beautiful diary from Gloria. Immediately deciding she would wait to make her first entry on New Year’s Day, she carefully wrapped it back in the white tissue paper.

Matt answered the door, swooping Ashley from out of the cold into his arms. “Where have you been all morning?” he asked, dangling a piece of mistletoe above her head with a kiss.
Becca stepped into the house and closed the door behind her. She tucked her hands into her coat pockets and gave them some privacy. After Matt returned Ashley to an upright position, he gave Becca a distant greeting. “Merry Christmas.”
Seeing the judgment in his eyes, she took a deep breath. “Merry Christmas.”
Ashley could feel the tension in the entryway. “So where’s your sister?” she quickly asked.
“She should be back any minute,” Matt replied glumly. “She went to pick-up some OJ with her new boyfriend.”
Ashley asked Matt how it was possible for Miranda to have a boyfriend over for Christmas when she just broke up with the guy she was seeing. “They got back together?” she
