Evelyn frowned and tried not to tremble. She hated to think that her life was so different or unacceptable, and she hated to think what would happen to her little family if she told an adult. But she knew Ness was right, and resolved to talk to Professor Carter in the coming days.

"Would you... I mean if I have to write to my family about Christmas... would you help me write it out? And maybe be with me when I get a letter back?" she frowned again.

"I didn't mean to make your morning all dramatic," she murmured. She felt bad, but was also way too grateful to worry too much about that. "I appreciate it a lot, Ness."

            Ness put an arm around Evelyn, wanting to comfort her now that the idea of a hug had been approved. And as Evelyn panicked, Ness’s arms wrapped tighter around her, and a hand stroked her back, and…... more
