It was just like David had imagined. The fire in the hearth was roaring and crackling merrily, sending sparks up the chimney, a burst of color and flame. The snow was falling just perfectly outside, so soft and peaceful.

The only crimp in his plan was the other man that had taken David's place, with his arms around the girl of David's dreams, his lips on hers. He gazed through the window for a moment longer before turning to leave, crestfallen. His only consolation was that the gentle snow would soon erase his footprints, wipe out evidence of his visit.
