You wander the drunken crowds maybe a bit tipsy yourself, the sheer mass of people overwhelming. You push to the stairs watching the people pass by. they sway to the music and as you watch you notice a little girl being almost crushed underfoot. She is dressed in rags and is clutching a basket to her chest.
You stand and offer her a hand managing to pull her from the crowd and to your side. As you touch her you think you hear the sounds of sleigh bells and carols, but shake it off as a chill passes through you.
The little girl looks up at you smiling happily and yells over the music. &Thank you so much. I&m just passing through trying to see if I can&t get a ride back home. My little sister needs me!& with that you look her over noticing that she is wearing thread bare rags of a dress and there are holes in her shoes. With a smile the little girl pulls out a flower and hands it to you . &thank you so much for helping me I&ll see my sister soon if more people like you help.& with that the little girl slips away the Spirit of Christmas and giving trapped in a very unseasonal place.
~Little Flower Girl
W-wait! I have a car! I could totally drive you to your sister!
