Blue tints surround her eyes, as well as her hands. The sun had been up for several hours now as Swift opened her eyes. She rubbed her eyes of sleepiness and got up. "YAY! IT'S CHRISTMAS!"
The white wolf walked into the living room. She could see the pile of presents underneath the tree. For her, he gifts came from many people. Her stepmother and father, her best friend, as well as one she considered her sister. But something was wrong. All the other presents were already gone, and the house was empty. The wolf walked into the kitchen where a note was waiting for her.
We wanted you to sleep in so we went out to go see the family. Open your gifts, do the dishes, and sweep the kitchen. Merry Christmas.
"They left me behind again! Bastards!" She had a fit before realizing, "But I GET TO OPEN MY PRESENTS!"
With haste she ran back into the living room. Like a kid, she unwrapped them with ease. One had a tablet inside it, and a laptop was found in a different container. She was happier.
But why was she still sad?
"He forgot…He said he was going to give me a gift through the mail. He said he was sending it two weeks early," She almost began to cry. The one person she loves is the one that got her the gift of nothing. Then her anger rose to a different nasty thought. "I bet it was my step-mom. She must've thrown it away!"
"No, it wasn't" A voice said from behind her back. She recognized the voice…but it was when she turned around that she went in for the kiss.
"Merry Christmas sweetheart," Sly said. The red fox went in for another kiss
"How did you get here?" She asked
"The same way we're going back" Two tickets appeared in his hand. "Now let's get packing and get out of here before our train leaves.
Sly helped Swift pack a suitcase of clothing, then they both got her presents packed as well. "How long do we have till your mother and father get home?"
"You mean STEP-MOTHER!" She growled.
"Yes, but how long do we have?!"
"I DON'T KNOW! WHY DO YOU ASK?!"
"You'll find out when we get back to our new condo" the fox said with a wink in his left eye
Sly let out a big sigh as she finished bagging her gifts. Her stocking was all that remain. "We're splitting that Kitkat, alright?"
"Let's do it!" She grabbed one of the Kitkats from the stocking and opened it. They enjoyed it immensely, then packed the rest of the stocking in an Ataché case. "I got this at my work"
"Cool" She smiled and kissed him again "Now let's leave this dump"
"Before we go. I might as well notify your parents" He grabbed a pen and some looseleaf paper and jotted down a farewell message:
If you're wondering where Swift is, she has gone away….and I didn't force her out of here…Shoot me a call.
He wrote down his number at the bottom. "Alright, let's go. Taxi's waiting for us!"
"Thanks for picking me up from my hole of lonesome," She said and gave sly a long passionate kiss. "Now let's get going to a new life" She grabbed her luggage as sly got the Ataché and the bags. The door was closed behind them and a new door was beginning to open for both of them.
