The Best Noisemaker Ever
Jim knew it was coming. He could feel it in his bones.
With every tick of the clock, it got nearer.
The anticipation made him tense.
Five minutes to go...
His hand was grabbed, and he ascended.
He was stripped, and guided down onto the cool sheets of his bed.
Then gently positioned, he felt himself become surrounded with heat.
He heard a sigh. Filled with content. With pleasure.
His own joined it.
He never heard the noisemakers, the firecrackers, or the shotguns, that heralded the New Year.
All he heard was "Love you Jim, Happy New Year, Babe" and that heartbeat.
