It’s release day for Sydney Logan’s latest holiday short story, “The Little Drummer Boy!”
It’s Christmas Eve, and Justin Banks is on the hunt for a last-minute gift for his wife, Megan. With the help of a homeless man and the beat of a drum, Justin stumbles upon the one thing Megan has always wanted. The one thing money can’t buy.
It’s amazing what we can hear if we just take a moment and really listen.
It’s faint, but it’s there. A quiet, rhythmic beat that blends into the night. How this old man heard the sound is beyond me.
“You hear it, don’t you?”
Probably his only possession.
“Shall I play for you?” he whispers.
