My heart lifted unexpectedly as I walked across the parking lot from the
bus stop and caught my first glimpse of Foster’s Lighting and Decor.
It was beautiful.
For weeks now, it seemed that every single store I passed had been
stuffed full of decorations. The big box stores on either side of Foster’s were
crammed with as much bright red, gold, and silver as they could, filling every
square inch. Honestly, it crossed the line and became tacky instead of festive.
But Foster’s had old-fashioned green garlands with tiny gold fairy lights.
There were several red poinsettias, and a classic wreath made from spruce on
the door. Festive, yet traditional. Much classier. I paused in front of the huge
glass window that wrapped around the sides, enjoying it all.

my own had been rough, but I thought I finally had it all together when I
found a job and an apartment not too far from my best friend, Sasha. I didn’t
think I’d be hunting for a second job so soon, but with rent coming, I was
There was a handful of customers browsing the aisles, yet no one at the
cash register. The man on the phone had said that one staff member was out
sick for several weeks, and another was injured, which was why they had
urgent need of a temp.
As I wandered the aisles, I spotted a man in a crisp dark suit who clearly
worked there. His large frame moved very slowly along the shelves as he
rotated a lamp slightly, then buffed it carefully with a cloth.
As I approached, I realized how tall he was. And how…oh my. Gorgeous.
