    Summary

    “I mean I just figured that since, you know, I had a nightmare and you had a nightmare,” Ruby says wringing her hands together nervously, “..we could like sleep beside each other? Dad said that sleeping beside someone helps in not getting nightmares and I kind of don’t want to sleep alone tonight? But if you don’t want to that’s okay. I mean it’s your bed and..”

    Summary

    The light has almost gone when he arrives at the tiny clutch of houses, and the windows are bright with the flickering glow of lit fireplaces. The streets are empty, but within there is conversation and warmth, casual affection and laughter. Hands are held and hair is tousled; small children nestle close to their parents’ sides. Dinner is brought to tables of rough-hewn wood – not much, for in this season there is never much – but Jack finds his gaze drawn to the sight, regardless, for even this little bit is more than he has. These simple pleasures, these small luxuries so taken for granted, infect him with the ache of longing.

    But tonight, they do not paralyze him here, silent and alone. They do not force him to linger as he so often does. Tonight, even the tantalizing prospect of what he does not have – light and companionship, food and family and love – can be set aside in favor of what is soon to be.

    For tonight, St. Nicholas is coming. Someone will be here for him, and that makes all the difference.

    Summary

    “Ya see, Sandy?” Bunnymund is saying. “Quit your worrying. The kid says he’s fine.”

    And almost, it ends there. Almost, they go their separate ways and let it stand for another four years, or another three hundred, for even Sanderson wonders whether he has been mistaken, after all. But Jack is agreeing with the Guardian of Hope, carrying obliviously onward. “Am I ever,” the boy says, fervently. “The 21st century’s great. You wouldn’t believe what people just throw out these days.”

    The admission comes like a wave striking rocks on a stony shore; it raises icy splashes of dread wherever its spray hits. Three horrified stares – and one that is not so terribly surprised – turn to the boy’s face.

    The spirit of winter falters to a stop, the reaction not the one he had anticipated. “What?” he asks.
