13. December 25th, 2016 (Epilogue)

Marvin yawned and sat up, looking around. They were back at Kaity’s mansion, after having successfully solved the case. It was nearly a week later. But then… why did he feel so incomplete?

    They’d barely spoken of the kiss since the night of the dance, and that had been a while ago. It was almost like it had never happened. But Kaity was warmer to him now- more gentle. They’d be sitting together, and her hand would brush against his, and he’d know that she acknowledged it, and was just waiting to find a way to come to terms with it. That didn’t make things any less uncertain. 

    He tried to remember what was so special about today. Kaity had been very excited… but about what? She was usually excited… 

    Then it hit him. It was Christmas. 

    That should have made him smile, but it didn’t. He missed his home- a place he would never see again, thanks to Kaity. 

    He wanted to tell himself that it wasn’t her fault. She’d only been trying to help. But she was helping from a problem that she had started in the first place. He didn’t want to hate her for it, but on days like this, it got hard.

    “Maaaaarvin!!!!” Kaity’s voice floated up to him from the floor below. “Come on, Marvin! I have a surprise for you!” 

    He rolled out of bed, wrapping a blanket around himself for warmth as he walked towards the stairs. There were lights below- he wondered what the ‘surprise’ was.

    He entered the mansion’s living room, and his mouth dropped open.

    The room was lit by a multitude of small lights hanging from the ceiling like stars. The floor was covered in a series of metal plates. Plants decorated the corners of the rooms, and a massive tree stood in the center, bedecked with small orbs of light. It looked just like the grand festivals back at his home.

    He turned in disbelief to see Kaity sitting near a mountain of presents. 

    “Merry Christmas, Marvin.”

    “All of this… how?!”
    “I thought you’d be homesick, so I set up the decorations to look like your home. I thought you’d like it.”

    “I do… but… why?”

    “Because I love you,” she winked, spreading her arms out. “This much.”

    A smile came onto his face. “Thank you, Kaity. You don’t know how much this means to me.”

    “You’d be surprised.” She patted the floor next to her. “Come on. Let’s open presents.”

    His smile grew as he sat next to her. “Merry Christmas, Kaity.”

     She leaned over and kissed his cheek, and he was warmed to the core. “Merry Christmas, Marvin.”

    In that moment, there was nowhere he’d rather be.
