Two Sides of Scrooge by Christopher Craven

Snowflakes scattered through the air as Carsyn stepped out from his tall office building, the ringing bells of pseudo Santa’s drowned the sidewalks and hums of “Carol of the Bells” echoed from Grant Park. Yes, Christmas was in the air. The holiday, however, never really phased Carsyn Glanders and truth be told--it made him sick to his stomach.

Can a look back with the help of an old flame change Carsyn's future?

Reviewer: RedDragonfly
Carsyn is your typical holiday Scrooge, he has everything anyone could ever want except for love. Can a visit from a not so ghostly person of his past help him to remember that love is just around the corner, if only he takes a chance?

For a short story I really liked it. Carsyn may have come to understand how to change a bit too quickly, but it still worked for this story. Even before he realized he wanted to change he was trying to, in small ways. I’d definitely love to read more about Carysn and Landon.

I give this 3.5 stars, a fun holiday short story!
