I wrote this for over a year to post on FF.net, and decided I’d share it with you guys here on Tumblr in its entirety. :D
The girl practically exploded from her homeroom, the hem of her puffy yellow dress trailing behind her. She couldn’t wait!
In less than a minute, she was there. Her breath hitched in her throat. With tremendous strength and resolve, she faced the heavy double doors and shoved them open. She was greeted with a warm light, accompanied by a flurry of glittery snowflakes and…pine needles?
“Ouch!” she cried as one poked her in the eye.
“We told you so,” two voices said in perfect synchronization.
“Quiet!” another voice hissed. “It’s all a part of the plan…”
When the light (and the pain) dimmed, the girl gasped in glee and surprise: assembled in the center of the room were the seven handsomest men she’d ever seen! “Welcome, ladies!” they said in unison.
The young man in the center, wearing a red suit and cap, looked directly at her, his violet eyes filled with sympathetic tears. “Oh, sweet darling,” he crooned, holding a mittened hand toward her. “I pray you weren’t hurt too badly. It would be a shame to see a lovely young lady such as yourself come to any harm.”
The girl squeee!d in delight and practically threw herself at him. He chuckled (after giving the twins a victorious smirk). “So tell me…what is it you want for Christmas this year?”
