ah thank you for this, it was truly beautiful. I love it, so so so so much!
there were just so many things that had me going here. tom being cold, just wishing to be warm, walking through the mall on his way home to get some warm in him. ahhh. and when he wakes up and bill is down arranging stuff and he is all "what?" and bill tells him that they heard him thinking that he wants something better, just food, not much, and that's why he's there. it's just brilliant and heartbreaking and just everything you can ask for. and tom feeling selfish for just wanting some food? oh poor little tom no. you are not selfish my precious little one.
I love how bill explained everything. how it's all connected. how tom's mystery gift disappeared after he stopped believing and just... the whole thing with santa just made so much sense and I love it. It's almost poetic and very well written. and santa-helper bill is my hero.
i also swear my own eyes teared up when tom's mom's eyes did and they had food. and the end note. oh gosh. Bill. bill was so sweet and precisely what tom needed. and i hope tom never stop dreaming again.
thank you so so so so so so much for writing this gooorgeous story!!!
