So, I’m currently working on the last two chapters of Redeem Me. The first should be ready to post by the end of the week. In the mean time, I thought I’d share this wee one shot.

It’s short, rough, messy and pretty raw, but it’s also very close to my heart so I hope you enjoy! 

Shout out to @happytoobserve​ for encouraging me to write this! 

P.S. - It was originally inspired by the song Colder Weather by The Zac Brown Band! Listen to it here. 

Summary: Following a devastating loss, Jamie is consumed with grief. He retreats into colder weather, distancing himself from those who care about him. Even Claire, the love of his life.
