On a couch near the fireplace, Bran is playing scales on the golden harp. It feels right, somehow, to have it with him again.

Mary cranes her head hopefully, to see if Bran has her book of harp music in front of him.

(The book began with scales, Mary is almost sure.)

"You are welcome," Mary says, looking solemn and pleased.

"Noswaith da, Bran. And Merry Christmas - although it might be late for that for you."

Mary nods.

"I am going to plant them once it is spring in the garden in Yorkshire - I am saving them for now. They are in my drawer waiting for then."

"It is very soon - in a day or so, but not yet," Mary admits.

"I did have my birthday, though. I am eleven now."

Mary is (justifiably, she thinks) proud of this.

"I expect eleven to be very interesting," Mary says, honestly, "but I do not think it could be more interesting than ten."

A lot has changed for Mary, over her tenth year.

"What happened when you were eleven?"

It is not hard to deduce what Mr. Lyon and Will have in common.

"Had you known about Magic before?"

"You never know if stories are true, though," Mary says, thoughtfully.

"It is different seeing it - or trying it. Stories do not have to be true, though it is better if they are."

"I did not say they might not be true. That is what I meant - they might or they might not."

A small shrug. "I did not have friends until I came to Yorkshire. I read lots of stories. I liked them better than people."

Mary makes a face.

"That is why I do not want to go away to school. The people I know here are all much nicer."

"I am always meeting new people," Mary says, a little startled.

"There are lots and lots. The newest person I met was called Tommy and he made evil computers."

"I have heard of them going evil before."

A small shrug. "Duo fought one once. It hit him and he came in all bruised."

"I do not know much more than that either," Mary admits, "so it would not do you a great deal of good to ask."

A curious pause.

"Bran? Is it Christmas in your home too, now? I do not think you said."

A small shrug.

"I was only curious. It is an important time."

Mary, of course, does not know just how important.
