Jim is a work-from-home writer who finds himself drawn to Patrick, a temporary postman assigned to his area in the run up to Christmas. It’s no coincidence that Jim begins ordering extra items to ensure he’ll get a glimpse of Patrick every day, but when it comes to verbalizing his attraction or asking Patrick out on a date, Jim is at a total loss. But he knows he has a limited window of time before Patrick won’t be bringing his package by anymore, and he needs to decide if he can get past his own hangups and take the leap he so desperately wants to make.

This is a fun and charming story, albeit it brief. Jim and Patrick are both such great characters and their interactions together are entertaining and endearing. Obviously there’s more than one instance of ‘package’ innuendo, but that’s part of the fun of a story like this. On top of that, it’s free, so you can’t really go wrong.

I would be interested in seeing what happens after the story ends, though, since it is so short…
