The Different Christmas

Introduction

Image
Image


Image
Image


The Richmond Family was well known throughout the suburb they were brought up in. Spending every birthday, special event, Thanksgiving, and Christmas at the same house on 22nd Street, just down the road from the Father's mother who baked them cookies. Mr. Stephen Richmond was the man of the Richmond household, the father, with Mrs. Annie Longly by his side as the mother. Now, some 50 years later after they moved there, the house has grown into a mansion, amidst Mrs. Richmond's additions to the house. Mr. Richmond was a humble architect, as Mrs. Richmond had just started her make-up industry when they were married.

Sadly, Mr. Richmond passed away last year due to heart troubles in his near 70's. Mrs. Richmond is still strong at 68, and is booming in the world of women's beauty. However, this year, the widow has brought home a pleasant surprise for her 5 children.

A new man.

Just how will the family react? Only the Richmond's know.

Reluctantly, the family decided to past their hardships and come together as they always have at the Richmond Mansion for Christmas. Not only does Mom have a secret man, but {Oldest Daughter} has some news, including her recent belief that her husband may be cheating, and {Youngest Daughter} brings home a new face. When will {Oldest Son} bring a girl home? Can {Middle Daughter} live up to her mother's expectations, and outshine her siblings in getting the company? And why is {Youngest Son} so shifty this year?

"Crying? No... Of course not. I'm just... tired." She sounded on the spot, but she smiled to cover it up. Just then, her mother opened the door, and upon seeing the two, practically screamed. "Gosh Mom, you see me every day at work. No need to be so excited." She laughed, before automatically correcting her with, "Allie, Mom, not Allina."

Then someone she didn't recognize appeared. A look of confusion washed over her face as he greeted them both; calling her Allina, of course. So that meant he had been told who she was from her mother. She cringed a little, before brushing hair out of her face. "It's just Allie." She smiled again, ducking her head a little. She hurried inside, out of the cold, and took her time taking off her coat and boots, before turning back to the new - old, guy - just as Beth greeted him. Allie hadn't heard him say his name. Too much was on her mind to pay too much attention. She saw Meghan off in the corridor, sort of hiding behind their dear mother. She sighed, grinning, before the realization of who this new man was sunk in.

Uh oh. Meghan was not happy. Allie sucked in a breath, before hurrying into the living room and placing the carefully packaged items onto the sofa for now. She would move them later. She heard the door open again, and the voice of Matty carried through the house, just as Meghan's harsh words echoed, and she could hear the heavy footsteps of her sister as she headed up to her - their - most closed off room. Their father's study. Allie missed her father just as much as the next person, but she thought that it would be what their father would have wanted. After all, if she died, she would have wanted Nate to have moved on -

But he had. He'd left her, and now she was in an utter mess. There was nothing she could do.

These new thoughts brought Allie to the brink of tears, but she could hear her siblings heading up to comfort Meghan. She would head up too, she supposed, but she had more words to offer her sister than physical comfort. In her experience, that helped a lot more sometimes. She popped her head around the door to see Matty, whose comment made her roll her eyes. "Oh shut up, you flirt." She said, grinning, to show she was joking.

The door opened once more, and it was the final of her siblings - Ian. She smiled and waved a little at him, sighing as she skipped the first two stairs, swinging off the banister to give her the momentum to leap up that far. "Hey, kid." She winked at him before heading upstairs after her siblings. She had completely ignored Mr Calhoun's introduction, so she paused halfway up the stairs and turned back a little. "Don't... Don't worry too much about Meghan, Mr Calhoun. I believe that it's what Dad would have wanted for us all. To have someone else to love isn't replacing anyone, rather sharing our pain and emotions with another member of the family." She explained, thinking to herself that her views were rather contradicting, since she wasn't planning to tell anyone about Nate. She forced herself to smile again, before heading upstairs again. "I'm going to go and explain that to Meg." She announced.

She had missed Matty and Beth's words of comfort, but she was sure what they had said would help. She edged towards the door, and knocked gently. "Meg, sweetie? It's Allie. Can we come in to talk to you?"

To say she was upset.. that was much of an understatement.

"You're really shaken up about this. Things will be okay she isn't replacing dad she just wants someone to be with. She's a people person Meghan. None of us are here only on holidays. Give her some slack."

First, it was Beth. Geez, so annoyingly a Momma's girl, Meghan had to fight the urge to just punch her right there. Then, Matthew. Oh, sweet, charming big brother rubbing her arm.

”Aw come on Lil. I just got here and you’re already upset.”

Lastly, Allina. Big sister having to see what was going on too.

"Meg, sweetie? It's Allie. Can we come in to talk to you?"

" Guys, I love you all, but we seriously do not know the term 'personal space' at all. Maybe I'm the only one here sane. We'll never freaking know, because you know, I'll be the next one to be freaking replaced." She snapped, and stood up, after hugging Matthew for a minute. "She acts like the man that made all of us possible has never existed in her life! I'm sorry if I'm blowing this up, not really, but at least I know my hospitality. Maybe it's just me.. Mom never seemed to.. take to me like she did you guys, yet I'm the only one with a normal boyfriend, and thinking about a family, and marriage, and have a job, and... " She started harshly rambling to herself, and was regretting every second.

Where was Brian? She needed him.

"I'm so sorry.." She finally broke again, and just sat back on her father's chair, looking at the fabric, becoming tear-stained. "I miss Daddy so much." She whimpered.

He had been left in her room sitting for a moment in the new environment that was about to fill with people he hadn't met yet and really rather should have already by the stage of relationship Meg and him had. But he must've slipped to off to sleep without realizing from jet lag because he woke to shouting downstairs.
It sounded like Meg's emotional shouts.

He rushed downstairs leaping over the last few impatiently and froze finding two new faces with Ms.Richmond-Anne-he made a mental note on the emphasis. "Uh...hi. I'm Brian," he re-introduced, transforming his approach to a more casual pace and extended a hand to the two men. One: very close to his age and two: older. Around the mother's age...maybe. Argh, he shouldn't assume.

He looked around anxious to find his distressed girlfriend, scratching his jaw. Brian was hereby torn not to appear rude to the present family members but was also busting to tend to Meg who probably just needed a little cuddle and cry. "Do you know where Meg went?" he asked softly and apologetically rather than straying around the mansion. He'd have to dismiss himself a little early from this encounter to find her.

Beth looked at Meg. She seemed a bit ticked off but everything was quite hard on the family right now. Since they just lost their father they were in some quite pronlems. She wasn't close with any of her family. Mom nor Dad. She wanted her own but her husband was no where close ready and she was losing her chance every day.

She had an eating feeling that he was cheating on her with his sexy secratary. I looked at Meg as she spoke to the others and me all around the room. "Come on Meg, we all miss dad. Okay. And normal I wouldn't know about." She muttered under her breath the last part.

Annie watched as everyone was busy with their own thing. She felt an aching pain. Her kids hated her and she needed comfering but she couldn't until she spoke with the kids she looked up at Adam. "We will go get a tree i guess soon so thanks for being here Adam I am going to speak to the kids."

She gave Adam a kiss and walked to where most of the kids were. As she listened to the last part of her speech she walked into the room crossing her arms across her chest. Looking at her kids she smiled then looked at Meg.

"I love you all a lot. And I am not replacing your father Meghan. I loved that man so very much but he's gone. I miss him but Adam has been there for me. We grew more then friends. I just want you to know that this kind of needs to stop. You may like Adam if you give him a chance. Please try for me. It is Christmas afterall."

She didn't appricaite this all drama. She walked to the doorway and sticked her head out. "I found her Brian, come on in comfort your girl." She said smiling at her family. "Ian you might as well get in here with your other siblings as well come on."

Yelling in the hallway now it sure was the family back together.
