As I take a step toward the wood stove, I feel her hand on my arm. “Are you sure it won’t be any problem for you to bring a guest to dinner?”

“Definitely not,” I reply. “Besides, my sister’s bringing home her fiancé and I need a reason not to be too hard on him.”

“So you’re saying you need me,” she says, her eyes narrowing. “You aren’t asking me out of pity just because I’m by myself on Christmas Eve?”

I shake my head. “Of course not. Besides, what’s the fun in having chips and salsa by yourself when you can have all you can eat turkey and ham to go with that wine of yours? Or if you’re a vegetarian, sweet potatoes or green bean casserole.”

“I’m not vegetarian.”

“Is that a yes then?”

As she smiles, I’m suddenly struck by how beautiful Summer Avila is when she’s not on the defensive.

“Yes.”
