Today I just flipped through the pages and came upon page 136. Haha, I would have also tried licking/eating the walls.
Marietta was bewitched; magic was ingrained into the very fabric of this world.
“The palace, the gingerbread chalets and huts in the town, the marzipan whirls of apartment suites and cobblestones, all of it is locked in an immutable state. Spellbound to remain frozen. If you attempted to eat any of it, you’d break your teeth. Even the moose are wise enough not to take a nibble.”
Marietta was vaguely insulted. “I am certain I possess more intelligence than a moose,” she told Dellara, who shrugged and resumed examining her wardrobe.
To the curious amusement of the man opposite she let out a quick self-deprecating, ‘Hnuh’. Meeting Luke on the train summed it all up – the perfect example of being halfway across the bridge. Fun, sexy, and spontaneous as he was, he epitomised all the things she didn’t want in a man or a relationship. Ironic because he was so like her. They had so much in common. With awful irony, she realised that the type of guy that Luke was to her, was what she’d been to Simon.
“Nutcrackers are brimming with magical powers. It’s long been said that if a wish is made at the exact moment a nut is being cracked, when the stars shine bright and the wind rustles his beard, and you can almost hear the sparkling of Christmas magic in the air all around, the nutcracker will grant the wish. Try it!”
Hohoho Merry Christmas all!
I want to wish everyone a very MERRY and JOYFUL Christmas! I hope everyone is having/going to have a great day (or two days like we have in my country)! May your day(s) be filled with joy, yummy food, happiness, gifts, and love. Yes, the times are not so kind, but let’s make this day/these days something fun, a light in dark times. gives all her readers a big big hug
And yes, that is one of the trees in my home, it is the one in my library attic. And yes, it is filled with plushies.
