Submission type:

Chez-Spivey.

 

'Twas the night before Christmas 

And all through the house, 

Not a creature was stirring

Not even a........ knock knock?"

 

Joe sighed, put down his book, his brandy, and answered the door.

"Hello Uncle Joe.!"   said Tuki.

"Hello Mr.Spivey." said Taiyoko

"Hej!"  said Hyle.

"What the..... " said Joe. As the others filed past and into the hallway.

 

Another tap on the door. Joe reopened it.

Finny smiled with her hands clasped behind her back. 

"What the ..... "  said Joe. As Finny slid past and into the hallway.

 

The next voice was very familiar, but this time it came from the stairs landing above.

"Hellooooooo everyone!"

"What the....  " said Joe. As Kirsten made her grand entrance down the stairs, her evening gown flowing behind her

 

Followed Silja, in unfeasibly high heeled boots and matching skirt ensemble.

Followed Anneka, pushing past the unfeasibly high heeled boots and flowing gown to join Finny.

Followed childish screams, then slightly more adult hugs and welcomes.

 

"What the..." said Joe. The thought of a peaceful smoke and brandy fading into the distance.

 

"I told you all about the party this morning !" Narrowed almond eyes jogged Joe's memory.

"Ohhhh.... "  said Joe.

((Lol, love it.

(No wonder Joe looks old and haggard, look at all the women he's surrounded by.)

Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.

Later, Hyle joined Kirsten on one of the opulent blue and gold sofa's in the lounge. Sipping fine brandy they chatted about this and that while baby Ichiro slept peacefully nearby.

The others were in different parts of the house, Tuki and Taiyoko were in Joe's study inspecting rows and rows of books. Joe was in the kitchen with Finny and Anneka, becoming more exasperated as the duty of childcare had fallen to him.

 

"So where did Silja go?" Hyle asked Kirsten. 

Kirsten smiled a knowing smile, answering the question with one of her own. "Dont you think her outfit was a little elaborate for a mere party?" The smile crept from one corner of her glossy lips.to the other.

"Åhh."  Hyle smiled."The thought did cross my mind now that you mention it. En kæreste?"

"Maybe." Kirsten kept the calm nonchalant smile as she offered Hyle another after-dinner mint.

Hyle took the offered sweet and leaned forward, turning slightly more toward Kirsten. Her curiosity had been piqued. Kirsten found herself leaning toward Hyle also as the conspiritorial huddle began in hushed tones.

"Do we know who?"

"Well... I think it is the grocers son, he's a nice kid in fact."

Hyle smiled under raised eyebrows, her expression clearly saying 'do go on.'

"Silja's got her self a nice bunch to hang around with Monika, Meike, you know the girl of the librarian?..."

Hyle nodded.

"...And Uwe."

"Oooooo, Yes!" Hyle trilled as she recalled the boy in question, then looked around to make sure her exclaimation had attracted anyone else's attention. Particularly Joe.

The huddle, and the discussion resumed. As Tuki returned with Taiyoko from the study she saw Hyle and Kirsten in the huddle, she smirked and diverted Tai to the kitchen to keep Joe occupied. And the kids..  obviously.

 

 

"So where's Mon and Meik?" Uwe asked as Silja arrived fashionably late.

"Oh, Monika's Dad's holding a party. They can't make it tonight. Just me."

Silja glanced right, Monika and Meike were leaning against a wall out of Uwe's sight, stifling the giggles. 

"Oh. Pity" Uwe looked a tad disappointed for a second but as Silja came closer he brightened up. "Ermm, nice outfit, Sil."

Silja obliged with a twirl. Monika and Meike made clandestine thumbs up to Silja from their cover then made themselves scarce.

"So what are we gonna do tonight without Mon and Meik, Sil?" Uwe looked a little lost as half their bunch were not going to be there.

"Ah, we'll think of something." Silja chirped.

 

Boys have absolutely no idea how girls work, do they.

I would rather die peacefully in my sleep, like Grandad, than screaming, like his passengers

((And if the boys are sensible they won't try and figure it out because they'll only get it wrong. So? Do we have some new characters here?

Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.

((Well, he's cute enough. But going on what happened with Silja's previous amour, once Joe finds out about him...
