The Gift

Christmas Elf 

 Clarissa walked over to the dresser, opened the bottom drawer, and took the box out. It was a small silver box, with a small but elaborate silver bow on top. She sat there for a long time, holding it in her hand. She eased the top off slowly. really not wanting to see what was inside, but knowing that she needed to. Inside was an elaborate ring … an engagement ring.

Antonio was dead … he died not long after giving her the ring. The gift that he left her was priceless … the gift of freedom.
