Once Upon A December
by Mandi B. Gordon

Kim sighed as she looked at her Christmas tree. It was trimmed and lit to perfection. The white angel on top looked at her with it's sad brown eyes. The eyes reminded her of Tommy, the white gown reminded her of Tommy. Christmas reminded her of Tommy. She sighed again as she looked out the window. Christmas was lonely. It used to be one of her favorite times of the year but now. She didn't know. She missed Tommy with a passion. As she looked at the stars she wondered what he would be doing now if he was alive. A small wind up bear danced by her feet as her hand stroked the painted wing of the angel on the window.

Dancing bears,
Painted wings,
Things I almost remember,
And a song someone sings,
Once upon a December,

Tommy gasped as one last tremor ran through his body signaling the end of the Quickening. The very beginning and end of Quickenings were the part that he could get drunk off if if he wasn't careful. It was the best feeling he could ever have. It was the feeling he always had when he held Kim in his arms. Tommy groaned as he reached for his sword. He looked over his shoulder as Adam Pierson walked into veiw. He smiled smugly as Tommy hid his sword and walked over to him.

"What are you smiling about?" Tommy asked. "Eric Karlos was over 200 years old and you took him out without breaking a sweat." Adam replied. "I'm happy you are alive."

"Yeah well hurrah for our side." Tommy growled as he started to leave. "I have to clean up. See you at Joe's."

"Tommy?" Adam called out behind him.

"What?" Tommy looked over his shoulder and glared at Adam. "Merry Christmas." Adam replied. "I never celebrated but I heard that you do."

"Yeah thanks." Tommy sighed then looked at the stars. "Merry Christmas Kim."

Someone holds me safe and warm,
Horses prance through a silver storm,
Figures dancing gracefully,
Across my memory,

Kim flipped through her picture album as "White Christmas" played on the radio. She looked up when she heard the door bell ring. She wasn't expecting any company let alone her best friends crowded around her door singing "The First Noel" badly.

"What are you guys doing here?" Kim laughed as she let them in. "It's Christmas Kim!" Billy smiled. "No one should spend Christmas alone. Even if they want to be alone."

"And we know you don't want to be alone." Jason placed a hand on her shoulder.

"Thanks guys." Kim's eyes were wet with unshed tears. "This is really nice."

"Kim you've had a very hard year." Zack replied. "We just want you to know that we are here for you anytime you need us."

"Tommy wouldn't want you to be alone Kim." Trini said as she handed kim a present. "Especially on Christmas Eve."

"No." Kim whispered as she hugged Trini hard. "He wouldn't."

Far away, long ago,
Growing dim as an ember,
Things my heart,
Used to know,
Once upon a December,

"You're want to what?!" Duncan looked at the teen in shock. "Tommy are you sure you want to do this? I mean you still have a lot to learn."

"Duncan I just took my third head." Tommy sighed. "I'm positive I want to leave. I just need some money so I can start over."

Duncan nodded slowly and looked at Joe, Methos, and Richie. Joe smiled as he clapped a hand on Tommy's shoulder. Richie looked at the two older immortals and shrugged. Methos just watched the scene with a beer in his hand.

"It's been real Tom." Joe chuckled. "Just remember when you are out in the world. You can always come back here for a drink."

"Or run to Duncan when you need your butt to be saved." Richie chuckled. "He's good at that."

"Thanks guys." Tommy smiled as he stood. "I got to get going." Duncan stood and walked with Tommy to the door of the bar. When they reached it he turned to the teen with a sad smile.

"When you need money just call and I'll transfer it to the bank closest to you." Duncan said as he took Tommy's hand into a warrior's clasp. "Don't loose your head."

"Thanks Mac." Tommy smiled. "And I'll be careful." Duncan watched as Tommy walked to his car and left the parking lot. He smiled wistfully as the red tail lights disappeared around the corner.

"Merry Christmas Tommy." Duncan whispered. "I'll see you around."

Someone holds me safe and warm,
Horses prance through a silver storm,
Figures dancing gracefully,
Across my memory,

Kim gasped as she woke from a nightmare. She dreamed that she was somewhere cold with Tommy and they were dancing. She felt like she was floating on a cloud. He was decked out in a white tuxedo with a silver bow and cumberbun while she was wearing a silver gown. He was about to kiss her when he just vanished. Then all Kim could hear was the sickening crunch of cars crashing head on. Kim looked around her room feeling that something was different. Then she saw it. A card on her bed next to a white rose. Kim's hands shook as she looked at the hand writing. It was very familiar. After she read the card she jumped out of bed and dressed in a hurry. She ran out of the house so fast that she didn't even look like she was touching the ground. When her mother looked in her room she saw the card and read it. "Meet me in the park as soon as you read this please."

Far away, long ago,
Growing dim as an ember,
Things my heart,
Used to know,
Things it yearns to remember,

Kim ran all the way to the park until her lungs hurt. As she slowed down her rational mind set in. Some one was playing a sick joke. She clenched her fist as she started over a hill. All her anger vanished when she saw the figure standing by the lake. The hair was the same, the build was a little leaner and more muscular, and the clothes were different. He wore blue jeans, a green shirt, and a denim vest. Kim let out a high squeak of shock. When the figure turned at the sound familiar brown eyes met hers. He smiled shyly as she stared at him.

"Tommy?" Kim asked.

"Hi Kim." Tommy replied.

"TOMMY!!" Kim screamed as she flew into his arms. "Oh my God! You're alive!" Tommy let the hot tears flow from his eyes as he hugged Kim with all his strength. She was just like he remembered. Soft, sweet, and beautiful. "It's a miracle." Kim whispered. "You're alive. You're here." "It's more complicated than that." Tommy whispered. "We need to talk about it. "I don't want to hear it now." Kim sobbed. "Just hold me. Let me make sure this is real and not a dream. Don't let me go." "I'll never let you go again Kim." Tommy held her closer. "We will be together forever. I promise."

And a song ,
Someone sings,
Once upon a December.

"I love you Tommy." Kim whispered. "I always have and I always will love you with all my heart."

"I love you more than life itself Kim." Tommy whispered. "Merry Christmas Kimberly Hart."

The End
