"Why don’t we just do Christmas here?" Jasmine wondered plaintively. "Like always.”

“I don’t live here anymore, Jazz,” Matt reminded gently. “I explained all that to you.”

“Oh,” she said, nodding, doing her best not to sneak a peek Carl’s way, even as that’s precisely what Elizabeth and Cory did at Matt’s words, while Carl stared back defiantly at them all.

“I’ll drive her over as soon as we’re done,” Lila told Matt coolly. “I’ll give you a call when she’s ready.”

“I can wait for Jazz to get changed,” Matt said.

“We’re in the middle of something,” Lila hissed. “Show a bit of respect, Matt. If not for your mother, at least for your daughter.”

“It’s okay, Mama,” Jasmine hurried to appease. “I can get dressed super-duper-fast. Don’t worry. Don’t fight.”

“Your daddy and Jeanne can wait. And we aren’t fighting. Are we, Matt?”

He hesitated, taking in the squirming Jasmine, the nervous Cory and Elizabeth, the torn Rachel and… Carl. Did Carl actually appear to be enjoying this?
