Who doesn’t love a good scary story at Christmas? Isn’t that what everyone does at Christmas? Tell scary stories? This is a really good scary story that takes place over many Christmas Days.
Ro, real name Roanoke, is trying to establish herself as a writer. In the Horror Genre. When she meets four different people at a local diner, all of them alone on a holiday, they become a group of friends, in a loose sense, and continue to share a Christmas dinner and gift exchange. At the first one she suggests everyone tell a scary story and boy does Grayson have a good one! Krampus is always a hit!
Ro has her own scary Christmas story. And it is going to tie in with one of these people. But, which one?
Years later Grayson asks to host Christmas and it turns bad quickly. This is a short story but I loved it! The author is so good at writing scary stuff and this one is just perfect.
