He'd smile at Kimi. "You're never intruding Kimi. You're always welcome here."

A few moments later he walked in with Carmen. "Who's not intruding?" he asked with a grin. "Merry Christmas everyone!"

She smiled. "And I can't believe how big Jasmine's getting," she said. She grinned when Thomas and Carmen came in. "Good morning! Merry Christmas!"

She grinned, feeling so peacefully and happy now that most of the people she cared about were surrounding her. For now she was content to just smile and say nothing.

She'd smile at everyone. She was the youngest...(well except the babies that didn't count). "So...can we open present now?" It was apparently a question she'd asked more than once this morning.

"Please, everyone, come in and sit down," she said, doing just that herself. She looked at Melinda, then over at Ash. "Can you go get Faith?"

He'd nod and head out. "Don't wait for us though...go ahead and start."

She giggled at Melinda and came to sit down, this year for once she wasn't really bothered about presents though, the real gift was everyone around her.

She chuckled. "You can hold her if you like, but I think Melinda has already done that," she said with a grin. She passed Aria over to Carmen.

He took a seat next to Carmen, enjoying seeing Carmen holding their new niece.

She'd nod. "Everyone has a pile. Kimi...yours are there's beside Emily's. Carmen yours are there, by Thomas'. Ash's and Charity's are...back there behind the tree a bit. Faith's..." She'd pause. "They're over in that chair." She'd grin, tapping the presents sitting next to her. "...and these are mine!"

"Wow, pretty good organisation skills," she grinned. Jasmine was still asleep so she managed to hold her in one hand whilst opening a present.

Kimi, Emily would both open little baskets that had spa elements-- facial creams, special sponges, bath salts... Thomas opened up a package of 'his and hers' towels and washcloths.


AdultThomas2

She'd nod, starting to open hers. "Yup!"

"And so are these, thanks so much! I need a proper relaxing spa set with all the hassle this one gives me," she laughed, stroking Jasmine's head. She didn't really mean it, of course, Jasmine was as good as gold.

-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:44, February 23, 2016 (UTC)

She grinned. "Of course." She went to start opening up her own presents, so that Carmen could open hers.

Melinda got a series of differently-shaped canvasses from Thomas-- a hexagon, a circle, a trapezoid. She also opened up a series of nail polish colors from Charity.

She'd nod at Thomas. "These are great! I'd never thought about that before."


Game Master

Melinda had gotten Thomas and Carmen a little cat made of glass. It was about half the size of a normal cat, and looked well crafted.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist

She'd grin. "I saw it in Hogsmeade. It's supposed to come to live and keep pests like mice and ants and stuff from your house."

She followed Ash in and took a seat near the edge of the action... closer to Emily than anyone else and she started opening her presents.



Melinda Adult

Melinda had gotten Faith a gift certificate to Flourish and Blotts. She'd gotten Charity and Ash a set of baby monitors. "I'm...hoping they work even with the magic. I mean...they're supposed to work like a radio...and the radio seems to work with magic...?"

Kimi stuck her hand up, "Yeah, I can confirm that they work, and they're a huge help. Especially in a house like this," she laughed.

She grinned. "Thanks, sweetie," she said. She knew they wouldn't be quite as necessary in the cottage, but she didn't want to be critical of Melinda's gift.


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable

 – 17:04, February 23, 2016 (UTC)~

She smiled. "Thanks, Melinda." She opened up a few new things for an apartment from Thomas. "Did I get your reject stuff?" she asked with a joking smile.

He rolled his eyes. "No. We went and picked those out at a store like normal people do."



Melinda Adult

She'd look between Faith and Thomas curiously. "...what'd you get?"

Kimi happily blended into the background for a moment and shuffled over to Carmen, where they both cooed and giggled over the babies together.

"The towels from Charity... The cat from you..." he opened up Faith's gift, which was a gift certificate to a clothing store. "And this from Faith."

"Books and stuff for my apartment," she said with a shrug. "And the gift card.... I figured it would help with expenses for the wedding, even if just marginally."



Melinda Adult

She'd nod happily.

"So I guess Mark stayed at Hogwarts again, then?" He looked slightly disappointed. "Maybe I'll make a trip up to Hogsmeade to see him or something..."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:33, February 23, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah he's got..." She'd glance at Faith, then frown, and try to change her sentence on the fly. "...N.E.W.Ts...he's already...needs to study for."


AdultThomas2

 – 17:35, February 23, 2016 (UTC)

He chuckled. "NEWTs huh?" He figured he knew what that was code for, and dropped it. He could ask Mark himself, later.



Melinda Adult

She'd glance back at Faith hoping she wouldn't be glaring. It was Christmas and Melinda didn't especially feel like fighting again today.

She was doing her best to just be as invisible as possible. She didn't like being around so many people... especially when Ash had already noticed her wrists. She pulled the sleeves of her hoodie over her hands, gripping the sleeve from the inside.



Ash Coryn
Ash Prince - Business Man

He'd notice Faith's fidgeting, and turn to address the rest of the group. "Well everyone, thanks for coming. We love having everyone here...it makes it feel like Christmas. Feel free to hang out, get some snacks...talk...whatever. We'll have lunch in a couple hours."

She took that as her allowance to slip upstairs again.

She'd follow Faith up to go change out of her pajamas.

"Actually, Charity, I wanted to talk to you...privately...if that's okay," she said, sort of awkwardly and she stood up with Jasmine in her arms.
