Encounters of the Sleigh Kind
"Theo, wake up," he demanded when his twin barely shifted under the covers.
All that came back was a grunt and Remy was not having that. He let his magic rip and the covers shot off the bed in a shower of sparks. Theo sat bolt upright and stared.
"Remy, what did you do?" Theo asked, still half asleep by the sounds of it, but watching the little sparkles float to the floor.
"Woke you up," Remy said, completely unrepentantly and grabbed his twin's hand. "I saw Father Christmas, now come on."
Time to Heal
"I feel it too," Theo's warm tone soothed the momentary panic rising in Remy and when he glanced at his twin he was given an understanding smile lit by the twinkly Christmas lights around the kitchen window.
"How did Daisy handle this year after year on her own?" Remy let out some of the tension in his chest and his breath whirled in the air in front of him. "It's so...so –"
"Big," Theo finished for him simply, still smiling as he turned to look out into the wild part of the manor grounds.
