It was Christmas Eve, but it didn’t feel like it. Just a couple of weeks ago, Ryo had been so excited, looking forward to seeing his mom and dad again. They’d been in Europe for months on a buying trip, and although they’d kept in touch by phone, it hadn’t been the same.
Sinking into a chair, he tucked his feet under him, remembering. He’d never got to see his parents, at least not alive, and now he’d never see them again. They should have been celebrating Christmas together, but instead he was all alone. He missed them so much.
