I wrote this short story a year ago for extra credit in Algebra II after a Final, so me the not so good at math at all guy, wanted to save his grade. It had to begin with “ ‘Twas the night before Christmas”.
‘‘Twas the night before Christmas and Venus was nervous, practically off her rocker. All she wanted for Christmas was to find out who her biological mother was, being it a failed attempt earlier in the year on her birthday, February 14th. She had always wondered if she looked like her, why name her after the Roman Goddess of Love, do they share the same habits, was Valentines Day her due date, just *always* thinking of her. Her adoptive parents were all for it because her birth mother had given them the greatest gift of all, her. One thing that always bugged her was that there aren’t any records of her mother, it’s like she never existed, all that was left to her adoptive parents, Ophelia and Damon. The letter wrote of how V(Venus) was a special girl and that she needed to be raised by special people. V and her parents had looked everywhere, she was so desperate she was beginning to compare her beauty to that of the homeless. As the day started to end, so did V’s hopes. Starting to loose faith, Ophelia and Damon had taken her to a nearby cathedral, V prayed for a sign, symbol, anything that could get her closer to her mother. She couldn’t take it anymore, she started to breakdown in tears in Ophelia’s arms. As soon as V thought all hope was lost, a nun came out and had looked at V in the most endearing way, she knew exactly who Venus was. She got on her knees and started praying but what they didn’t know is that she was summoning the Archangel, Seraphina. Sprouting out of thin air and blue light, these beautiful wings span out with a raven haired beauty attached to them. Venus, with a look of amazement had gotten teary eyed, with Seraphina displaying the same exact expression. Venus had no doubt that Seraphina was in fact her mother she had been searching for all these years. “Hello my dearest Venus”.......... to be continued. #shortstory
