It was Christmas day. I looked at her. Her eyes were glassy. She coughed. I
hugged her. Baby, are you getting sick?

She coughed again. I think I am.

My arms reached for her.

She leaned into them.

I held her.

That night, I pulled her close. Her body was hot, not with passion, but fever. I
love you, Gin.

I love you more! She coughed again. Its my day! We have our days when we
can love each other more.

I love you too, baby.

That night, the magical night of Christmas, I wrapped my arms around her, and
cuddled her. She was sick, but I didnt care. Shes my wife.

I write this story and cough. I caught her cold, but I dont care. Shes my little
girl. Shes my love. No matter what, I hold her.
