Christmas in the Loft

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Justin thinks heís past needing the outer trappings of Christmas.  Trees and holly, decorations and wreaths, delicious smells of orange and cinnamon, cookies and spiced wine - these seem childish and unnecessary now in this streamlined grownup life he leads.

So itís Brian who buys the tree, sets it up, then demands his help and expertise to decorate it.  Brian who buys and bakes the cookie dough then coaxes Justin to create frosting artwork - santas and snowmen and elves.  And itís Brian who decks the loft with strings of colored lights.

And when he sees Gusí face, Justin understands why.
