A horrible rumbling growl wakes me. I jump out of bed looking for the big cat about to attack me. Anabel, Birch, and Ben are the only ones in the room. It must have been a bad dream. 

Then I hear it again. Oh boy. It's my stomach. I need to find something to eat. I quietly open the door surprised that I haven't already woken Ben. There's a softly lit lantern on the floor (actually a bright companion) and a fragrant pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Sebastien found a way to use all the morphing pumpkins collected by the ghosts and provided me with a perfect middle of the night snack. I pick up the pie, cream, and lantern which automatically dims a little more when I enter our room and slip into bed with my bounty. I'll worry about the crumbs and spilled cream in the morning.

Ben and I thoroughly clean up all the pie crumbs and cream, practice water conservation and dress for breakfast with Belle and Sebastien. As we pass through the game room, I see many ghosts sporting an avatar with Pegasus. Sebastien makes sunny side up eggs and bacon while we all catch up. 

"The Queen isn't doing well. She's missing her mate tremendously and is losing the will to live. I understand her sadness but I don't know how I can help her unless I can find her mate. I have no clue where to begin."

"Hon, don't worry about that now. This break is so you can reconnect with me and your personal needs."

Belle noticed my wistfulness when I entered the kitchen, "Poppet, what is making you slightly disappointed?"

"I missed out on the Pegasus avatar and I love it. It reminds me of your immortal duties and time we've spent caring for your charges."

"Sweetie, the castle challenge is still occurring and we'll help you get caught up. There's a day and a half left."

I jump up from the breakfast table and run to the game room to my computer. I look at the tasks and my shoulders slump. There are a lot of ghost collecting tasks which take so much time. Sebastien walks up behind me and softly says, "I'll make sure Salty knows he needs to lose at dice if he wants Zarknorph to let him keep his liquor license." I beam. Maybe I have a chance.

I hit the first ghost task and yellow ghosts line up to float across my screen; my daily quests are all 3 of 3 different candies; blue, violet, green and azure ghosts all line up to float across my screen. I'm more than 2/3 through the challenge but I've reached the red ghosts and there's not a single one in the castle. Oh no! I need to think of a strategy.

In the Mandrake Kingdom....

Though there have been many meetings on the issue, they have yet to come up with a solution.

”I am their queen, that should be good enough.”

”Majesty, please try to remember that for thousands of years they did not have a queen.” Lord Septen says.

”But they did have the lower ranked royals. What happened to them? Did they abandon the people?” Antheia asks as she realizes that she is speaking to a few of those lords.

”We did not abandon the people. Instead, we watched over them and let them rule themselves. Might I suggest we take a more democratic move and let the people decide who they want to rule over them?” Lord Gineran says.

”Why would we do that?”

”It might placate the people and put these protests to bed.” Lord Septen answers.

Much bickering ensues among her council as Antheia sits back to listen to what is said and contemplate the idea of an election.

The sound of the twins crying wakes me out of my depression long enough to remember that they still need me. I take care of their needs then pack them up to go to the store.

The walk takes a bit longer as the fall ghosts are back and I have to dodge and duck the houses. We get what we need then stop by the sheriff’s office for an update.

”Sorry Ma’am, but there hasn’t been any sign of Galen. Perhaps it is time to contact the guardians.” He turns and walks away.

Despondent, I take the twins home.

After putting away the groceries, I send a note to Lucius and Gray Nightwalker.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, no one was stirring not even the dogs. The boys were all snuggled in their crib with care, who knows what stirred in their heads. Missing Galen, I settled down for my winters nap. I in my flannel pajamas and warm woolen socks had just closed my eyes when there came a clutter.

I got up and opened the shutter and what did my eyes see?  9 different reindeer ghosts playing with a sleigh in the yard. They pushed and pulled and tried to make it fly. It brought a smile and a need to laugh I hadn’t felt in a long while.

I went back to bed but wasn’t there long when there came growls from the living room. Up once again, I went to see what the dogs had cornered only to see an overgrown elf. All dressed in red with white trim, he quietly tried to shush the dogs while he laid gifts under my little tree. Just when I thought he was done, he pulled two more out; bones for the dogs which he gave to them.

Then he turned and spotted me there. He gave me wink and then disappeared. As I headed back to bed, I could swear that I heard “ Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.”

l know that I am a little late with this, but it didn’t come to me sooner.
