This story is about a young couple, Ned and Letty Childers, that live a bit secluded. On Chrismas Eve Ned needs to keep a lot of money from his employer in his home.

This suspenseful short story is worth the app. 15 minutes it takes to read. Perfect for when you have to wait for a train or something like that. Recommended.
