  1. Exterlude: Ylva

    “Merry Christmas, hon.” The waitress, Ylva thought, felt bad for her; at least, she’d been letting her sit there for hours nursing one cup of cocoa, all she had change for right now. “Here, we’re gonna throw the soup out anyway, have a little.”

    “Thanks,” she murmured, wrapping her hands around the soup.… Read on

    Regine made, he had to admit, a token effort at the holiday experience. Knowing it was solely for his benefit – his Mistress thought celebrating Christian holidays was foolish, since they were descended from older gods than the Christian – made the whole thing a little awkward every year.… Read on

    I’ll politely decline
    These words taste like poison
    I made mistakes but I’m taking them back now

    As fun as his time with Ivette had been – mind-blowing, earth-shattering, blissed-out fun – Jamian was enjoying spending Christmas afternoon cuddled against Ty, thinking about his conversation with Mark and basking in the warm presence and surprising approval of his Keeper.… Read on

    Christmas Day.

    They had exchanged presents with the crew the day before – although most of them had lavished their attention on Mabina’s twins and little Min – but, at Conrad’s suggestion, Kai and Conrad had held off their own exchange until this morning.… Read on

    Blood’s thicker than the mud
    It’s a family affair

    They decided on not-black, which taxed both of their wardrobes. Emrys did all right with it; he had put on black slacks nevertheless, insisting that the pants didn’t count with regard to the outfit’s color, and topped them with a charcoal buttondown.… Read on

    Knock, knock.

    When the first knock came, Emrys was sitting on his bed, turning the folded square of cloth over in his hands. What did it mean, really? He couldn’t just ask her, of course. Shahin had had nothing more definite to go on than he did; she was out for a bit, anyway, talking to some of her other friends.… Read on

    It’s all that I have to give.
    I give you my all

    In a crew as full of Workers of huamu as Shiva’s crew, it wasn’t surprising to find the suite hung with pine garlands, the spruce tree growing in the corner draped with living decorations of holly, the poinsettias on every flat surface.… Read on

    Don’t you know, it’s not easy
    When you gotta walk upon that line
    That’s why – you need
    That’s why – this is what you need

    Kai clutched her bag of gifts nervously as she headed to the gym on what would normally be their training time.… Read on

    Not to take this lightly
    So do not underestimate
    A token of affection

    Shahin couldn’t ignore the small rock of dismay in her stomach, feeling more than a bit ill at ease as she walked through the halls, hand in hand with Emrys – with her fiancĂ©.… Read on


  11. Interlude: Conrad

    “Have you tried just asking her?” Luke’s face had the dyspeptic expression he reserved for his Students’ relationship problems.

    “Flat out, you mean? I couldn’t do that. If the answer is no, she’ll think I’m clinging and becoming too attached. If it’s yes, she’ll wonder why I didn’t just ask the other question.” Conrad shifted uncomfortably in his chair as he looked around his Mentor’s office, at everything besides Luke’s face.… Read on

    Remember who you really are
    Do what you, what you want

    “Come on,” Shiva urged, tugging Jamian’s hand as if he wasn’t going along on his own. “This is going to be fun! Thanks for coming with me – Niki gets… cranky and Magnolia gets catty and Ty gets sulky when I make them come with me.”

    Jamian almost balked on reflex as she explained her motivations.… Read on

    The future’s looking rosy
    And I can see us spending every Christmas
    Together

    “I’ve never really done this before,” Kai admitted, as she and Conrad walked into the Store. “I know I say that a lot,” she added, “but I think that this is a bit stranger than most.” For human values of “strange.”

    “You’ve never gone shopping?… Read on

    Here but for the grace of God go you
    You’ll be merry
    I’ll be merry
    Though merry ain’t in my vocabulary

    “I don’t understand what you want me to do here, M… Shahin.” Xaviera’s frustrated complaint as they entered the Store was muted, but it was still a complaint.… Read on


  15. Prelude: Tya

    Sneaking out to spend time with DJ had been easier than Tya had expected: she’d told Shiva she was going to DJ’s, and Shiva agreed to cover for her.

    Sitting with Eryk balanced on her lap and Siriana in a basket nearby, Tya knew, with a little stab of guilt, why her former Kept had been so willing to help her out.… Read on
