You Ring My Bell
By Erin Wade
A quick Christmas story that has lots of wrappings. It’s sweet, funny, musical, and it pushes all the right buttons.
A short story for the holidays from bestselling LGBT writer Erin Wade. When Avery Denton discovers that her partner and life-long friend Jim Steel is planning to divorce his beautiful wife, Mandy, she is angry and distraught. A former Miss America, Mandy had worked two jobs to put Jim through med school. When he solicits Avery’s help in duping Mandy out of her share of their community property, she is aghast that he would stoop so low. All Avery sees for the month of December is heartache and misery for all concerned. Caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place, Avery must choose between the man who has always been there for her and doing the right thing, a decision that could destroy the life she has so carefully built for herself.
