Set in Christmas 2049. Post after Thackery.

Maya flicks through the pages of a book, scanning through ivory pages within the text. She would trace an index finger searching and reading, looking for the exact charm to getting started on this Christmas’s feast. “Yadda, yadda, yadda. If it weren’t for that Saint, Helga Hufflpeuff...I swear,” she grumbled in a small rant. “Ah, here we go! Roast goose,” the auror produces her wand from her back pocket, getting to motioning of swishing and flicking to prep the said goose. Maya comes to learn multi-tasking was easier for her as an auror than an unofficial cook. Her lovely cousin, Elvera was a star in the kitchen, while Maya burnt the goose twice already. Elvera can make slice bread look like fine-dine eating, in contrasts to Maya who can’t measure ¾ of a cup without overspilling oil. To be fair, some things she tried by hands and eventually gave in to the magic. In remembrance to the man who had a part in bringing her and Lucca to this world, she had experimented with the muggle way. The third time magic won and made everything come well together as Elvera and the girls would arrive at any moment. Maya invited Domhnall if he was feeling festive, she left him with the address to find the shop in Salem. The Book of Shadow was still very much home after all these years. Carter, Maya was hesitant to invite him. She sent word to him either way if he didn’t come so be it. This was the first time in a long time she was hosting Christmas here and in the current shape he was in these days, there no telling how he will behave. “Thackery, have you finished setting up the table, no sign of Lucca yet? Elvera and the girls?” Maya asked while she put the finishes touches of this holiday, festive, whatever they wanted to call it meal.
“Sh!t, am I forgetting something?”

Thackery sat on a stool flipping through a book he really wasn’t that interested in reading. “It’s been set an hour ago, and no, no sign of Lucca or your cousin,” Thackery vocalize slowly. He talks with a southern drawl that it sounds like he was from the south. Which was odd because he a Salem native-born and raised. Thackery facing the window this entire time so he could perfectly see who was approaching the small shop. It took only a mere second to look up and notify if guests were arriving. “Are you sure he coming, Maya? He says he’s always coming but never does,” Thackery reminds the oldest DeNiro. Thackery didn’t know what it was, but it’s like the guy never liked coming home to visit his sister or sick mother. It’s like he did everything he can to avoid coming home. There had to be a reason behind that, Thackery wanted to know why Lucca didn’t like coming home. “And your cousin, is she coming on the floo network? How long will it take her to get here?”

Sorry it has been a busy week and when not busy i have been trying to catch up with classes/exams/marking


It was Christmas and Elvera was rather excited. Her cousin had offered to do christmas this year in Salem and she was looking forward to it. she had hardly been to America before and the girls had never been.
unfortunately that morning had been a little chaotic. aside from packing presents for the girls and clothes she had also had to organise the animals. Merlin was fine looking after himself, her raven was more than capable of finding food, and summer in new Zealand was like a buffet. her kneesle was also fine on his own, staying in the castle meant that the elves would make sure she he had food and water aplenty. but It was asteria and Teuta who had been problems. they did not want to go into their carry cages and had somehow managed to get themselves hidden under one of the beds where noone could reach them. eventually, they were organised and elvera set the floo powder into the fire sending first the girls, then the luggage then herself off to America.
As she stepped out of the fire she felt herself spin for a second from the stop. floo was not her favourite way to travel but for long distances especially with the girls, it was the easiest. once her world had stopped spinning she looked around the room. she saw the girls standing there looking a little bit grubby bur a big smile on each of their faces excited to be in America or excited to see their cousin or excited as there was, on the other side of the room a boy who was just a little bit older than them. she would never know. she flicked her wand three times clearing the dirt of their robes before stepping over at her cousin and giving her a hug. from the owls they had exchanged she knew it had been a tough few months for Maya and she wished she could have been there to help her through it. but with the school and the sho,p she did struggle a bit with time. "Happy Yule Maya, thank you so much for having us. I hope that you are well" she said giving her cousin a hug. she then turned to the boy. Merry Christmas, it's Zachary right she said hoping that she got the name right.

At first thought, Domhnall was rather excited to be invited to Maya's Christmas party, but then he reminded himself that he hadn't done that particular holiday in ages and that he would barely know any of the other guests she'd invited over. Still, he was pleasantly surprised to be invited to such a party, especially since he was starting to consider Maya as a friend ever since their initial hang out. It was because of this that he eventually decided to attend the party at least for a little while. Thinking that it would be rude to show up empty-handed, however, the man brought two bottles of alcoholic beverages with him. He had been to the United States a couple of times but never in Salem, so figured that he apparate into the town and ask where to find the address his colleague and friend had given him. Much to his surprise, because Domhnall honestly thought that it would take him a little while, he was at the shop before he knew it. Not sure if he was just supposed to enter or what, the Auror knocked on the door and waited patiently for someone to answer it.
