Christmas Writing Challenge #8

The Nativity Movie

Mary is pregnant. She does not remember when it happened. But she is. And now she must do something about. Joe is a slacker. No job to speak of and no life goals. But when he finds out that his sort-of girlfriend is expecting, he decides that he needs to make good.

With Christmas looming, Joe decides that it’s a good time to “make an honest woman” of Mary and he tags along her on the journey to visit her family for Christmas with a view to asking for father’s blessing to marry her.

The journey is long and with train cancellations and buses breaking down the pair find themselves hiding from the cold late at night, in a barn with three strange men and two farmers. Will Joe discover what Mary really wants from him, or will he continue on this pointless quest ? And will they get to Mary’s family in time for Christmas dinner?
