The Man Who Came To Stay For Christmas
Twas the night before Christmas and Princess Clarissa was all alone in her castle. Another year had gone by without a prince to come and marry her. But a horrid snow storm was brewing and with it the bitter winter winds brought a strange unconscious man to her doorstep.
Waking up, this haggard man had no recollection of who he was. As there was nobody else around who could help, reluctantly Princess Clarissa takes him in for Christmas.
As Christmas moves on and the princess gets to know the injured pauper. As she resists her feelings toward this man, she attempts to keep him at arms length. But as the festivities drawn to a close and the strange man’s memory starts to thaw, will Princess Clarissa live to regret not being able to follow her own heart?
Tune in tomorrow for another Christmas Writing Challenge.
