christmas with the crew || secret santa assignments


"alright everyone, gather 'round," juliet called to her ten restless room mates.

soft grunts of annoyance echoed throughout the crew. "i don't think you understand the fact that this is a very small room and we are not a very small group," chrissa sighed.


julie rolled her eyes. "if you would kindly shut up, it'd be much appreciated. either way, i've gathered you all here tonight because i have decided to do something a little different this holiday season—we'll be doing a secret santa!"


julie continued. "as you might remember, earlier today indie was passing around a list for everyone, save me, to sign so i could make slips. since there's eleven of us and a gift swap wouldn't really work with an odd number, i decided to keep my name out of it."

lissie piped up. "don't you want anything this year, juliet?"

jules shook her head. "all i want is for you guys to do a group activity together without killing one another. i know, i know, i ask for a lot."


chrissa turned to julie. "if you think i'm spending the next week and a half wasting my time and money on one of these vinyl brats, you're wrong. just put your name back in, i'm not doing this. no way."


juliet and indie ignored chrissa's complaints and cut up the sheet of paper into tiny slips and mixed them up in nutmeg's basket.


"you get first pick, my friend," julie said as she offered the basket to indie.


next she extended the basket towards chris. "your turn."

chrissa snorted. "i told you, i'm not doing this crap."


julie one again ignored chrissa's complaining and turned to the rest of the crew. everyone chose a name without a problem, probably just to keep jules from getting mad at anyone else.


"hey j," emerson said, "i'm actually pretty excited for this. thanks for putting this together mate."

chrissa made an overdramatic sigh. "em, stop being such a kiss up."

emery grinned a little to herself. "stop being such a pretentious bitch, why don't you?"


scarlette chimed in. "okay, we don't need that em. but chris, you have to choose a name."


julie walked over to chrissa and held out the basket once more, this time with only one remaining slip.


"take it," juliet said sternly. "you're going to be a part of this whether you like it or not."

"but you—" chrissa whined.

julie cut her off. "maddie and i are working on getting special gifts for everyone, so don't think i'm trying to get out of this the easy way. take it."


chrissa gave up and grabbed the paper. "there," she said. "happy now?"

julie nodded and tucked the basket back into it's little corner where their little rabbit resided. all the girls, sensing the meeting was over, headed back to wherever they came from. chrissa stayed put and pouted.


emery was the last one on her way out. she stopped by chrissa, who refused to acknowledge her room mate's presence.


"hey, chris," she said. "sorry i called you a pretentious bitch, man. if you want help making something for your person, i'd be more than happy to assist."

emerson waited for a response.


finally, chrissa replied. "i don't want or need your help, thank you very much."

"suit yourself, but don't come crying to me for help when you see what a great gift i get," emerson replied teasingly with a grin, but chris didn't even blink. emery sighed and walked away at last, leaving chrissa alone.

"i guess i might as well see who i got—maybe it's someone tolerable, like jade or kanani."


she unfolded her paper to find emerson's tall, boring, yet undeniably recognizable handwriting. chrissa sighed yet again. 

"you're kidding me."

  3. Wow! A bit of tension there. Chrissa seems a bit of a bully, kind of ironic - all things considered. I'm looking forward to how this plays out with her and Em.
