12. December 16th, 2016 (Part three, Marvin)

Marvin gritted his teeth as he pushed his strength through the air towards Kaity. This was all he could do to help, and he was determined not to mess it up. Kaity was tough, but she’d let the ghost have her. Without him, she’d be down. 

    He tried not to look at them. He tried to tell himself that it was just the ghost’s miasma. But seeing Kaity kiss it made him sick to his stomach. He couldn’t look… but he had to keep her strong, or she’d pass out, and lose her chance.

    That thought made him angry. Some ghost thought it could get the best of Kiaty?! That was impossible. He wouldn’t let it happen. He couldn’t. He gritted his teeth, pushing his strength into her. Exhaustion began to seep into his limbs, but he didn’t care. Kaity had to be strong. His strength didn’t matter. She had faith in him. He wouldn’t let her down. 

    “Hold on, Kaity,” he growled between his teeth. “Hold on.” How long did the kiss have to last? How long did he have to watch this?!

    Abruptly, there was a bright flash. Marvin was temporarily blinded, and he threw a hand up in front of his eyes. Panic surged through him.

    “Kaity! Kaity! Where are you?!”
    Her voice responded distantly. “I’m… right here. I think we did it.”

    He blinked the spots away from his eyes, and there she was. The ghost was gone. The temperature in the room increased several degrees. Then she smiled at him, and all the heat rushed to his face. He approached her, and she hugged him, catching him off guard.

    “We did it, Marvin!” she said happily. Then she drew back, frowning. “Are you… okay? What’s wrong?”

    “I just…” he sighed uncomfortably. “Seeing you kiss that ghost boy…”

    “The ghost boy?”

    “The one you danced with. The one you had to kiss to end the case.”

    “I didn’t want to. I don’t love him. I wanted to kiss you, Marvin.”

    More heat. He was sure his face was bright red by now. “What?”

    “I could only do it because he had your eyes,” she added, her voice dreamy. “And I told myself that maybe kissing him would be like kissing you- if you would kiss me.”

    “You’re still being affected by the miasma,” Marvin said, trying to hide his embarrassment. “Just wait. It’ll wear off.”

    “You’re not listening to me!” Kaity said, her voice filling with frustration. “Why won’t you take me seriously? You never take me seriously.”

    “Okay, okay, I’m taking you seriously!” Marvin said, trying not to laugh. Kaity was pretty funny when she was still being affected by the miasma- even if she was being weird.

    “I love you, Marvin,” she said dazedly. “I love you THIS MUCH!” she spread her arms wide, and smiled, like she was expecting applause or something. 

    “That’s great, Kaity…”

    “You don’t… you don’t like me?” she asked, eyes widening. “You don’t like me at all?”

    “No, Kaity, of course I like you!” Marvin replied, wondering how he’d gotten into this situation.

    “Do you love me?”

    She sounded like she was drunk, but her eyes had a sharp intensity to them. Slowly, Marvin nodded. 

    “Yes. Yes I do.”

    Kaity’s eyes lit up, and then they were kissing. Marvin could feel his face flushing, but in that moment, he didn’t care. He didn’t care that he was just Kaity’s assistant. He didn’t care that anyone might be looking at him. All he cared about was that he was here, and kissing an amazingly beautiful girl. Everything was perfect. He had Kaity. She loved him. Even if she was suffering from the effects of a miasma. it didn’t matter.


    He broke away from the kiss, and turned to look. Standing behind him was Alex.

    “Alex! Thank you,” Marvin grinned.

    “No, thank you, man,” Alex smiled. “I’m glad you’re with her.”

    “Who’s that…?” Kaity asked.

    “That’s Alex. He gave me some advice,” Marvin shrugged.

    “I just wanted to come say thank you,” Alex added. “I have to go now.”

    “Go… where?” Marvin asked.

    Alex didn’t answer. He only smiled. And then he dissolved into light.

    Marvin stared in disbelief. “He was… a ghost?”

    Kaity’s voice sounded behind him. “Not all Christmas spirits are malicious, you know!”
