  • I've been thinking for some time now about what should my first story be about. Maybe about myself, about things I like? Kind of.

    On this very same day, almost 20 years ago, a little girl waited for Santa. She was lying in bed with her father, thinking about when he would come. Suddenly she heard a noise. Her first thought, of course, was "Santa is here!" As she looked through the window, she saw a shooting star. She didn't bother to make a wish, 'coz the only thing she wanted at that moment was Santa's visit. And she did not doubt: her wish had just been made true.

    Now, in 2011, she wasn't expecting Santa. She wasn't expecting presents at all. But two pretty packages under the Christmas tree made Santa's visit come to her mind immediately.
