'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Rhymes courtesy of Chero and myself. <3
'Twas the night before Christmas and none were in sight
Save a vampire named Kaname, a creature of the night
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Sasuke soon would be there.

The circle of friends- Chero, Hime, Jen, Mocha, Kiki, Chrysta and Danni- all sat in their beds on the upper level of the two story house. For a long time no one said anything. Suddenly, Chrysta, who was reading aloud, said, "Why is Sasuke a Saint?"

"....Who knows..." Hime blinked. "I mean, he could be...?"

"Poetic licensing?" Jen put in.

Chrysta ignored them both and continued to read.

The fangirls were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of bishies danced in their heads.
And Kira in her kerchief and I in my cap
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap.

Chrysta paused. "....are any of you guys sleeping?"

"No." Unanimous.

"Then this is inaccurate...other than the fact that we ARE in Gin and Kira's house." Hime pouted. "I really wanted to see Santa tonight! I thought someone said the book was magic!"

"It is magic!" Mocha put in. "Why would I lie?"

For a few seconds no one said anything. Kiki spoke up, "Maybe it just doesn't work today?"

Chyrsta started to read before anyone said anything else.

When out on the lawn there arose such a loud cuss,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the fuss.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the pile of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a young, Japanese Santa and a Strawberry Reindeer! (Erm..Mighty Steed.)

"Something landed on the roof." Hime sat up straight.

"How do you know?" Danni asked, eyeing her fishbowl as if she wanted to crawl back into it. "It could've been hail or something."

"Or it could've been ST SASUKE!" Hime exclaimed. "I wanna see! I'll blackmail him into letting me have a ride on his sleigh!"


Chrysta glanced out of the window, mumuring the next four lines,

With a funny young driver, so grouchy and grim,
I knew in a moment it must be St Sasuke!
For a second he shifted, then his face turned icy blue
And he yelled at his reindeer "What the f*ck's wrong with you?"

"Get a move on, strawberry..."

Oh, it was Santa alright- or maybe his son. He looked too young to be thousands of years old, and his reindeer looked more like a boy in a reindeer costume than an animal. He was currently cursing at his reindeer- in Japanese.

"Santa's Japanese?!"

"Apparently..." Chero looked out of the window. "But..I can't go out there. I'm afraid of heights." DX
