"Decorations" Life on Mars drabble

Title: Decorations
Fandom: Life on Mars
Character: Sam Tyler-mentions of others.
Rating: G
Notes: Written for the Weekly Drabble Challenge at lifein1973. Prompt-Lights. Submitted for Day 17 of consci_fan_mo.
Summary: Close to the holidays and far from home.

Sam wakes up, blinking away vague images of coloured lights.

Wake up, Sammy. Please come home for Christmas.

He closes his eyes again, desperately trying to will himself out of this nightmare to absolutely no avail.

Soon enough, he’s back at work where Chris is attempting to untangle a dusty string of fairy lights and Ray brandishes a bedraggled sprig of mistletoe and an especially filthy leer for the unlucky WPCs who cross his path.

Gene lumbers out of his office wearing an utterly incongruous Santa hat as he announces yet another grisly murder.

Mum’s prayers will have to wait.
