Daily Story Challenge-Month 4-Christmas Time

Here's the December 2012 DSC. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and a small notice:
This is being published in January because I took part in No Movella December.


16. Day 15

"What...?" it slipped from Victoria's mouth as she cast her eyes over the brightly-decorated living room, the sparkling tree, the piles of presents... And what was that? Dinner? But she'd given up doing it...
"So, what do you think?" came an unusually cheery and warm voice beside her. "Do you like it?" her mother came closer and smiled at her. Victoria only stared back in wonder.
"But, why?"
"Because I am sorry. I wanted to make it up to you," she told her with a nervous smile.
"What about my brother?"
"He's at a friend's house, an old friend's house," and with that, she turned and handed one of the presents to Victoria. "Here you go, sweetheart."

She pulled back the folded gift tag and read the familiar scrawl of her mother's.
'To Viccie,
Merry Christmas, Darling...
Lots of Love,
From Mum'

Tears threatened to spill from her eyes. Maybe it was a Merry Christmas after all.
