December is always difficult. So many family events. So much business work to do. Plus school and homework and the host club.

Add in assisting Juni over Akinori-sensei, and the appearance of one Orihara Izaya, and things just got interesting.

I should probably have a record of our newest guests, but frankly, I'm behind. I hope to catch up at some point.
