All I Want For Christmas Is You



*I don't want a lot for Christmas

There is just one thing I need

I don't care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true...

All I want for Christmas... is... you... *

It was Christmas Eve, and as she listened to Mariah Carey, Hollie Tanner heaved a great sigh. The young woman could relate to the song all too well. She could relate because she was in love. In love with a man she'd never have.

Hollie was 18 going on 19. She was short, and a little on the chubby side, with shoulder-length, bleached blond hair, and stunning blue eyes. The man she loved more than anything was JC Chasez.

She didn't know how it had happened. She'd been a fan of *NSYNC for nearly two years when she found herself inexplicably drawn to the blue-eyed sweetheart. In less than a year, she realized that she was in love with him. She knew it was love. She'd never felt anything as strong. She wanted to give her all to him, but knew it wasn't possible. And she still couldn't get over her feelings.

And every Christmas since then, she'd longed to be by his side.

*I don't want a lot for Christmas

There is just one thing I need*

He was all she wanted for Christmas. All she needed. He'd be the perfect present. But he was too far from her grasp.

*And I don't care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

I don't need to hang my stocking

There upon the fireplace

Santa Claus won't make me happy

With a toy on Christmas day*

Hollie sighed again as she stared sadly at a picture of her beloved.

"I wish you were mine." She muttered. "The perfect gift."

She layed her head against the picture, and seconds later, drifted off to sleep.

*I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true

All I want for Christmas is you...

You, baby*

Hollie awoke to a loud pounding on her front door the next morning.

She sat up in the middle of the living room floor, confused. It was 8 A.M. on Christmas morning. Who could be at the door?

As she stood to walk to the door, she found herself under the mistletoe.

As she looked out the window, she saw a black Jeep in the driveway behind her old Plymouth. All at once, it began to snow, tiny white flakes landing on the two vehicles. It only snowed in her hometown once every ten years, so it was rather pleasant for her to see.

*I won't ask for much this Christmas

I won't even wish for snow

And I, I just wanna keep on waiting

Underneath the mistletoe*

Hollie threw open the front door... and her jaw dropped in shock.

As a child, her mother had always said that if she didn't tell Santa Claus what she wanted, she wouldn't get it. Her mother had definitely been wrong. Hollie's perfect gift was on her doorstep!

*I won't make a list and send it

To the North Pole for St. Nick

I won't even stay awake

To hear those magic reindeer click*

"Hi. Can I find a Hollie Tanner here?" he asked.

"I-I..." She stumbled into her words. "I'm Hollie."

"Hi, Hollie." He beamed. "Nice to meet you." He extended his hand, and as she shook it, she could feel the heat radiating through his gloves. "I thought the Christmas card that you sent to Jive Records for me was totally sweet. About how all you wanted for Christmas was the chance to spend a little time with me."

She blushed. "Yeah?"

"Do you still want that?" he asked. "I was in the next county when Johnny brought the card to me last night. Since I'm not going to be able to go home this year, I asked Johnny for your home address so I can make your Christmas wish come true."

Hollie's heart swelled with joy as blissful tears silently inched out of her eyes.

*Cause I just want you here tonight

Holding onto me so tight

What more can I do

Baby, all I want for Christmas is you...*

Hollie had a quick shower and changed while JC had a cup of cocoa.

When she stepped into the kitchen, she wore heavy jeans, a red turtleneck, red boots, and full makeup. She was quite embarrassed when she realized that she nearly matched him. He wore heavy jeans and a turtleneck, but his boots were black, and he was wearing gloves, as she was not.

"So, Miss Tanner, what would you like to do first?" He asked, placing his cup on the kitchen table.

She smiled and looked at the heavily falling snow.

*You... Baby...*

"Incoming!" JC yelled, throwing a snowball at Hollie. It hit her right square in the nose.

"Ah!" She rubbed the cold stuff off with her gloved hand. "You asked for it, hotshot!"

The tiny snowball smacked against his thigh. "Yi!"

She threw another that landed on his head.

He shrieked. "My hair! YOU RUINED MY HAIR!"

"Get over it." She beamed.

"I'm gonna get you!" He giggled in a high-pitched, girl-like voice.

*All the lights are shining

So brightly everywhere

And the sound of children's

Laughter fills the air

And everyone is singing

I hear those sleigh bells ringing*

The snowball JC threw went down the loose turtleneck.

She screamed. "You have so asked for it!"

She ran towards him, and they soon found themselves laying on the ground. His jeans were somewhat baggy, and she easily threw a ball of snow down into them.

"Yipe! That is cold!" He jumped up and did a little dance, trying to shake it down his pants leg, but it just melted.

As Hollie stood, he tackled her, and they found themselves on the ground again; but this time, he was laying on top of her.

"Whoops." He rolled to the side, but his eyes stayed on her face. "You're a very pretty girl, Hollie."

"You think so?"

"Yeah. Yeah, I do."

*Santa won't you bring me

The one I really need

Won't you please bring my baby to me...*

She could have sworn he would kiss her, but as a car flew by, he just jumped up, helping her up with him.

*Oh, I don't want a lot for Christmas

This is all I'm asking for*

As Hollie stood inside, she looked at JC on her doorstep. She didn't want him to go. She wanted him to stay forever, but she knew he couldn't.

*I just wanna see my baby

Standing right outside my door*

"It was great meeting you, Hollie." JC smiled.

"Yeah. You, too." She sighed.

He pulled her into a gentle hug.


*Oh, I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know*

As she tried to move away, his hands gripped her face slowly.

*Make my wish come true

All I want for Christmas is you*

His lips met hers in a gentle, endearing kiss.

*All I want for Christmas is you, baby*

Hollie trembled as she awoke. She ran her fingers over her lips.

She must have fallen asleep.

It was early morning. Christmas Day.

He hadn't really been there.

As she sat up, she touched her lips again, a lone tear falling from her cheek.

She didn't get what she wanted for Christmas.

One gift that she wanted... and she'd never get it.

*All I want for Christmas is you, baby...*
