This week’s prompt: He realized the child had seen him.
It was Jim’s first tour of duty in South Korea, and he was homesick. The Korean people, their religion and traditions were very different. But thanks to the American servicemen, they knew about Santa Claus. Jim wanted to play Santa for a family who lived in a cardboard shack. The little boy coughed and wore only rags. On Christmas Eve, Jim filled a plastic bag with toys and food. He couldn’t leave it outside where stray dogs would find it. But as soon as he opened the door, he realized the child had seen him.
“Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas!”
