Two people thrown together in an airport coach station and sharing a brief, blissful time. It was two weeks before Christmas and I had been compelled to swap the heat of the Caribbean, where I was living, for the chill of England. Family business. A funeral, in fact.

Nativity figurines and wreaths accented the small apartment. The apartment had been small and bland when she first rented it, but Nia was creative and could make even the plainest apartment look like a winter wonderland. Sophia loved seeing her granddaddy.
