Name: Martha
House: Hufflepuff
Ratings/Warnings: 1st-2nd years/None
Title: Perfect Christmas

Eileen used a quill and ink, though it seemed peculiar to use her beloved writing tools on the odd, non-moving cards. She carefully checked off each name on the small list he had given her to insure that no one was forgotten.

The shabby house was decorated sparingly. There was no telling whether he would come and praise her efforts, or rip them down in a rage.

The baby kicked in an almost fretful manner, and Eileen anxiously moved her hand over her swollen belly. This Christmas there was only one thing that she wanted.

Please, let this baby live.
