"Young Madam, your friend has just entered the gates. Would you like to send her in?" the butler informed Angela while she fixed a sparkly silver ribbon on the tree.
She set down the box of ribbons on the table and picked up a white gift bag—her gift for Nina. "It's okay, Elias. I'll meet her out front. Thank you."
"Heyyyyyyyyy!" Nina greeted as Angela emerged from the house. The trunk of her car opened as she got out. "What are you guys doing? Are you having fun?"
"We're decorating the tree." Angela's eyes widened upon seeing the trunk full of presents. "Wow. Did you become Santa Claus and forgot to tell me?"
"I had to send Rudolf to the vet because his nose didn't light up, so I'm driving instead." Her voice was sing-songy and full of sarcasm.
They hugged each other and giggled. Nina greeted Oliver who followed his sister out, as she handed over three gift bags for them. He promised to give her one sometime this week.
