CHAPTER 243 – Best. Gift. Ever.

CHAPTER 243 – Best. Gift. Ever.

Abigail pondered what to give Dad for Christmas. Bentley had access to a closet, so he could go “shopping” for something for Dad. But the doors to the closets on her floor were closed, so she couldn’t do that. Just then, she heard Dad singing off in the distance, “All I want for Christmas is for my bunny to poop and eat. Poop and eat. Poop and eat.” It never failed, if a bunny was going to stop eating, it would be right after the vet closed for a holiday weekend.

Abigail had an idea. She thumped to get the attention of all the buns in the house. “Alright guys, tomorrow is Christmas. Let’s give Dad a stress-free Christmas. Nobody get sick or stop eating, OK?” Enzo and Turbo looked at each other and shrugged, “OK, we can do that.” Mocha and Hobo were on board. So was Bentley.

But Abigail had a special gift in mind for Dad.

The next morning, Dad came into the living room and said, “Good morning! Merry Christmas!” Enzo bounded over to greet him and Dad gave him a pet. Abigail stayed in her spot and screwed up her courage. As Dad came over to Abigail to give her a pet, she circled his feet, which was unusual. “Good morning, sweetie. Did you have a good night?” asked Dad as he started to pet her. A silent communication happened between them. Dad sensed something different this morning and asked, “It’s Christmas. May I pick you up and give you a hug?”

Abigail felt his hands close around her tiny body. But she didn’t run off. “Yes, Dad, you may!” she thought. Dad slowly picked her up and clutched her to his chest, stroking her tiny little head and ears. “Aww, that’s so sweet. I love you!” he said as he gave her a kiss on her head.

Though it only lasted for a minute or so, it was a magical moment. “Merry Christmas, Dad. I love you, too!” Abigail signaled she wanted down, so Dad gently set her down on the floor. She hopped away, but not too far.

“Thank you, Abigail,” said Dad.

Best. Gift. Ever.

For Christmas, Abigail lets Dad pick her up and hug her. Best. Gift. Ever.
