Chapter 1

'Tis the season :)

I take a deep breath, then ring the doorbell.

I am so excited.

I'm getting to spend Christmas with my best friend and his family. We met 5 years ago when I lived in Northern Ireland with my dad for 18 months. I'm now back with my mum in Los Angeles, but go back to Dad's regularly.

I'd already booked the flights to before he told me he was going to London with his new girlfriend for the Christmas and New Years. Luckily, the McGinty's happily let me stay at their place.

A cold gust of wind whistles past, and I wrap my coat tighter around myself, shivering.

The door opens, and the second I see him, a huge grin spreads across my face.

"Maddie!"

"Damian!"

He engulfs me in a huge hug, lifting me off my feet.

"I've missed you!" I smile once we've parted.

"I've missed you more! Now come inside, it's freezing!"

I re-gather my stuff and walk inside, taking in the familiar view.

"Where do I put my..."

"Oh right, in here." He beams, reading my thoughts.

He heads upstairs, and I follow, lugging my bags up behind me.

What the heck is in here?

Oh, right, pretty much all my belongings PLUS all my Christmas presents.

"Um, seeing as it's gonna be pretty cold, Mum didn't want you sleeping in the lounge so... yeah, you're sleeping with me. Is that ok?" Damian says quickly, avoiding eye contact.

I raise my eyebrows, and he blushes a deep red.

"No, on the fold out bed... ugh, you know what I mean."

"I know I know, just like old times." I laugh setting my things down.

I turn back around and see him staring at me.

"What?" I giggle.

He shakes his head.

"You look.... different."

"In a good way or a bad way?" I ask,

"Oh, definatley good." He smiles.

Before I can answer, the door slams open.

"Maddie, darling, you're here!"

Joanne wraps me in a hug, kissing my cheek.

"Mum, let her go!" Damian moans, rolling his eyes.

She gives me one last squeeze, then holds me at arms length.

"Oh, look how much you've grown!"

I can't help but smile at her excitment of seeing me here, she's kind of like a second mum to me.

"MADDIEEEE!"

Damian's little brother Cooper comes sprinting through the door, brown curls flying, and stretching his arms out.

"Hey little man!" I grin, lifting him up.

"Phhew, you're getting pretty heavy, how old are you now, 15?'

"No, I'm 7! He protests, resting his head on my shoulder.

"Have you been a good boy this year so you can get presents from Santa?" I whisper loud enough for everyone to hear.

"Anything but.." Damian mutters as Cooper nods enthusiasticlly .

I roll my eyes as they stick their tongues out at eachother.

"I think my baking is ready, who wants cookies and hot chocolate?" Joanne announces as I put Cooper down.

We all put our hands up and start heading downstairs, but Damian stops me, pulling my arm and turning me round.

"Yeah?"

He looks like he's about to say something, then appears to change his mind.

"It's good to have you back Maddie, really."

"Aww," I giggle, putting my arm around his shoulders."It's good to be back."
