They stood toe to toe.
Black patent leather lined up against Lightening McQueen Red.
One white gloved hand reached out for the other and I’d swear later that a smile passed between those palms.

I took in their Mutt and Jeff version of their holiday namesake as they compared fur covered collars and white snowballs hanging like ornaments from their furry hats.

Twinkling blue eyes met inquisitive chocolate ones.
“It’s me…” a tiny voice whispered.

“I know you…” the jolly voice answered.
Because that’s what happens when someone believes in you.
