Merry Christmas Everyone!

     Elizabeth looked  up at Noah, memorizing this moment for the rest of their lives. The wedding had been a magnificent affair, but she'd been so distracted by her desire to have it over, she could barely remember the trappings of the event. 
     Now they stood together, man and wife, waiting for the musicians to begin. Noah's face was flushed. She suspected he was nervous with half the county watching them. She squeezed his hand reminding him she was his partner now in all things.
      The first notes of the Bride & Groom Dance sounded, signaling  the beginning of the song and their committed relationship. Carefully, Noah turned her into his arms, holding her closer than Grandma Alice would approve. His voice was a rough parody of his usual gentle tone when he asked gruffly, "Shall we dance?"

Elizabeth's Waltz is a short story I've written in serialized form for my Dream Catcher Newsletter subscribers. The vignette is complete and at midnight tonight the downloadable file will be available for a limited time @ Gem's Place.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!
