The contents of Enel’s keepsake box clattered to the floor as he tipped it upside-down. Battered chess pieces, precious colored pencils, and a few broken bits of candy canes all tumbled out in a rush. He shook the box wildly, and a few scraps of paper floated from the bottom.
Tossing it aside, he sat back on his heels and sighed. He pawed through the mess, scattering pieces in a wide arc around his knees. Cold from the orphanage’s hard tile floor leached through his pants and pricked against his bare ankles. No, no - none of these would work.
He snatched up a mottled pigeon feather and held it up to the slanting evening light. He’d snuck it to the boys’ dormitory under his coat - Mrs. St. Claire didn’t allow the kids to handle germy bird feathers. After a solid washing with soap and water and a rigorous towel-down, it looked less like a feather and more like Noah’s bent and frayed toothbrush.
This was unacceptable. But there was nothing else to choos

Beware the Bacon Tree
Enel wrapped his hands around his cup of cocoa, relishing the warmth bleeding through to his fingers. The fire crackled in the fireplace in front of him, giving Marcus' living room an air of comfort and laziness. He leaned back against the coffee table and breathed deep. Chocolate from his mug mixed with the earthy aroma of woodsmoke. Nearly perfection.
It just needs peppermint, he thought.
Idony and Marcus sat on either side of him, both in armchairs facing the fire. Idony held her hot chocolate close, letting the heat drift up to her face. She closed her eyes as Marcus read aloud the last sentences of his book.
"'May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!'"
As Inony sighed in contentment, Enel couldn't help but copy her. Marcus had an excellent reading voice.
"Enel, don't be so dramatic." Marcus closed the book and set it on the table behind Enel's head.
"But it's such a good story!" Enel said. "I'm showing you my satisfaction

The contents of Enel’s keepsake box clattered to the floor as he tipped it upside-down. Battered chess pieces, precious colored pencils, and a few broken bits of candy canes all tumbled out in a rush. He shook the box wildly, and a few scraps of paper floated from the bottom.

Tossing it aside, he sat back on his heels and sighed. He pawed through the mess, scattering pieces in a wide arc around his knees. Cold from the orphanage’s hard tile floor leached through his pants and pricked against his bare ankles. No, no - none of these would work.

He snatched up a mottled pigeon feather and held it up to the slanting evening light. He’d snuck it to the boys’ dormitory under his coat - Mrs. St. Claire didn’t allow the kids to handle germy bird feathers. After a solid washing with soap and water and a rigorous towel-down, it looked less like a feather and more like Noah’s bent and frayed toothbrush.
This was unacceptable. But there was nothing else to choose from.

“Enel!” The call echoed from somewhere out in the hall. “Are you ready yet?”

Enel clenched his fists and bit back a frustrated growl. He twisted around and shouted over his shoulder.

“NO!!”

He rifled through the pile in front of him one more time. The mess spread across the floor and under his bed. This was all useless.

Heavy, booted footsteps echoed down the hall toward the boys’ dormitory. Enel gasped and hurriedly shoved everything back into a single pile. He tried to shove it back in the box, but it was taking too long. As the footsteps grew closer, he panicked and swept everything under the bed. The footsteps stopped right behind him.

“Enel! What are you doing?”

Enel jumped and smacked his head against the bedframe. Noah grabbed his ankles and pulled him out from under the bed. Enel twisted onto his back, kicking his legs.

“Let go - let go!”

Rolling his eyes, Noah released Enel’s legs, and Enel scrambled indignantly to his feet. He frowned down at himself; the entire front of his shirt was covered in lint and dust bunnies.

Noah scowled. “Are you ready yet? Your stuff’s been sitting by the door since noon, and Mom’s about to leave.”

Enel casted an anxious glance to the floor and twisted the threadbare hem of his shirt. He squirmed under Noah’s judgemental gaze.

“No, I have to find a present,” he said.

With a huff, Noah lunged forward and snatched a package wrapped in brown paper off Enel’s unmade bed. He held it up with a sarcastic expression.

“You have a present, Enel.”

Enel pressed his hands to his stomach and shook his head so hard, his whole body twisted with the movement.

“No! That’s for Avidan! I need one for Velvare!”

“Enel, you don’t need-”

“Oren said if I’m going to the capitol, I need a present for Velvare! But I don’t have anything!” Enel hiccuped and started wringing his hands. “What am I gonna do?”

He took a shaky breath and bit the joint of his thumb. Noah laid a hand on his shoulder, tucking Avidan’s present under his arm and looking Enel in the eye.

“Hey,” he said. “It’s okay. Why don’t we go to the kitchen? We’ll find some cookies or something, but them in a basket. Make them look nice.”

Enel’s face broke into a wide grin.

“THAT’S A GREAT IDEA!!”

He spun on his heels and took off down the hall. He sprinted out of the boys’ dormitory and thundered down the stairs. He passed Mrs. St. Claire by the front doorway, where she knelt in front of a girl showing off a loose tooth.

“Enel-! Where are you going?”

Enel ran by without pausing for so much as a sideways glance. “Kitchen! Be right back!”

Hello TSE fans, and Merry Christmas! I got hbaofficial, and I answered the prompt "Velvare and Enel's first Christmas together as father and son." I interpreted this as the first Christmas after Velvare invited Enel to become Avidan's playmate, but it wasn't until late that I realized it was probably meant to be a Christmas with current-time Velvare and Enel. Whoops. I had fun with it though.

For time frame, I wrote it so it was between when Enel first starts hanging around the capitol, but before Velvare almost dies in the library. Since we don't really know the details of Noah's backstory, I assumed he didn't get all hostile and jaded until after this story takes place, so I made him a mostly benign, grumpy cynic. Pure, probably inaccurate, speculation on my part.

NOTE: I've been really busy these past few weeks, so I didn't get it finished in time, but I'll have the rest of it up either on Christmas or the day after. THERE IS A LOT MORE I SWEAR.

Rules: Tag 8 people you want to know better (How about 3, that sounds good)

Name: HistoricalFangirl , 1stLieutenantTwitchy, Sarai Howard, or, Sarah Howard

Star sign: Pisces

Average of hours sleep: Somewhere between 8-10. When school gets rough, that number drifts more toward 7-8, but I try not to let it get below that. I need a lot of sleep.

Lucky number: Either 19 or 14, but 1776 is also a nice number. (Because I'm a NERD)

Last thing I googled: Whether or not "pry bar" is one word or two. (My dad was asking) But before that, I was researching the Voyager Golden Record for an Astronomy project.

When I started this account: Last December, for the 2015 TSE Secret Santa

Amount of watchers:  2 - I'm actually surprised anyone's watching me, given that I've only posted 3 things!

what do I post: So far, exclusively fanart/fanfiction for The Silver Eye. I am okay with this.

do I run any more blogs: 1stlieutenanttwitchy.tumblr.co… (I rarely use/check it though)

do I get a lot of comments: Not really, but I don't post a lot, so I don't expect many. So far, all my commenters have been fellow TSE fans. I love you guys. :3

why I chose my username: Before I was a part of any fandom, I was a history nerd. I am history's fangirl.

Alright, time for tagging: HappyHS , Capella336 , LydiaHopeDaulton

Um, hi. I'm a fairly reclusive teenager who sometimes suffers from mad fits of the crafts-itch. Most of this has to do with obscure fandoms or the need to sew something.
