Christmas Innocence

Marta awoke to the sound of Maggie sobbing. Rolling over on the lumpy mattress, she hugged the child to her.

Sighing with despair, Marta wished that were the only reason Santa would have no presents for the girl this year. 

This story was written for the weekly 55 Word Challenge flash fiction photo prompt.
