It's Christmas Eve, and Grady Hobart is feeling anything but "nice." Not only is he working the graveyard shift at the Traffic Town Truck Stop, but he hasn't had a customer in over two hours! All that changes when a comely stripper from the Booty Barn strolls in, still in costume as Mrs. Nasty Claus, complete with a black lace thong, matching bra, sheer red cape and six-inch Lucite heels!
Unfortunately, Cherry isn't there to tempt Grady with her feminine wiles; only to buy her nightly stash of lottery tickets, one more sucker hoping to strike it right with a little bit of luck—and a heaping dose of Santa's good will.
Shortly after Cherry leaves, Grady clocks out and wishes his replacement a "Merry Christmas," only to find Cherry still sitting in her van in the parking lot. Shrugging and zipping up his hoodie for the long walk home, he's surprised when Cherry pulls up to offer him a lift.
He's even more surprised when, instead of driving him home, Cherry whips around to the back of the Traffic Town and parks. Maybe Christmas won't end on such a downer, after all.

Even though this was a short story, it was romantic, steamy and erotic. What was at one time secret high school crushes between Grady and Cherry, the wish to be together became a reality for them on Christmas Eve.
Grady dropped out of college to help an ailing father and began working at Traffic Town, the local truck stop. Cherry was a dancer at a local gentleman's club. Christmas Eve and neither of them had anyplace to be or anyone to share the evening with. Cherry picks Grady up as he's walking home from work and they have a very enjoyable evening to remember.
The author did a great job with this short story. The flow was very smooth and the story was immensely enjoyable.
