“It’s A Wonderful Tangle Christmas Carol” by Emma Chase in Baby, It’s Cold Outside
I shut the door to our apartment and toss the mail down on the front hall table—mostly last-minute Christmas cards. Nothing says “you were an afterthought” like getting a Christmas card on Christmas Eve. I hang up my
black wool coat and slide the shopping bag with Kate’s new shoes under the table, to be wrapped later.
Unlike me, Kate is good about waiting. She likes to be surprised, so I don’t have to put in the extra effort of
hiding her gifts to keep her from sneaking a peek.
I walk into the living room—and stop dead in my tracks. I was planning on going home only for a few minutes, to let Kate know I’d be at the office the rest of the evening. But those plans get tossed out the window.
Because reclining in the chaise longue is a gift that beats the hell out of anything I’ve ever seen sitting under
My wife, Kate Brooks-Evans.
Kate Brooks-Evans in lingerie.
Kate Brooks-Evans in see-through, Christmas-themed lingerie.
Her smooth legs are crossed at the ankle, bare except for the spiky heeled, shiny black boots that end below her knees. A sheer red nightie, trimmed in fluffy white fur, covers tiny red panties—held together by two silk bows tied at her hips. A shiny black belt cinches her flat stomach, and more white fur embellishes the strapless
neckline, bringing my attention to her perfect breasts and pink nipples pressing against the gauzy fabric. Kate’s
luscious dark hair falls over her shoulders, curled at the ends, and a fleecy red-and-white Santa hat sits on top of her head.
She smiles mischievously. “Welcome home, Santa.”
“Mrs. Claus,” I smirk, “you’ve changed.”
