It was a cheerful ending to a brilliant Christmas Eve. But when Fenestra showed up to take her home, Morrigan was surprised to realise she felt a certain amount of relief.
She adored Hawthorne’s family. She really did. She loved the way that Cat and Dave teased each other. Homer made her laugh all the time, and even though she’d only just met Helena, she liked her already. She didn’t even mind being tyrannised by Baby Dave. And Hawthorne, well…. he was her best friend.
But, although she would never have let it show, being around the Swifts all together like this made Morrigan feel a tiny bit… what was it? Not jealous, exactly. Just…
Well, yes. Jealous. If she was being honest with herself.
