Devika: SYRINX!Syrinx: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt your little holiday cacophony practice. A letter to Miranda got mixed up in my mail last week, and I wanted to make certain that she got it.
Devika: How uncharacterisically kind of you! Awww!
Miranda: What, does it have anthrax in it?
Syrinx: Tragically unlikely.
Miranda: You really hate me a lot, don't you?
Syrinx: Yes. Yes I do. But this letter was much too important to burn while cursing your name, like I normally do with your mail.Miranda: Nice.
Devika: So you already know what's in the letter.
Syrinx: I have a pretty good guess...though it had more to do with reading the return address label than fortune telling, really.
Devika: And you wanted to make sure she got it, which means...
Syrinx: It means, I forsee a great catastophe for Miranda. And THAT means, that maybe Santa really DID read my letter this year.
Devika: Is that really forseeing, or wishful thinking?
Syrinx: As with all fortune telling, Devika, it is some of both. Anyway, happy holidays to us all. Why, mine appear to be getting happier already... farewell.
Miranda: Oh no.... oh NO...
Devika: Miri! What is it?
Miranda: Oh God, this can't be happening! And that rotten Syrinx held on to it long enough, there's not enough time to MOVE!!!
Devika: Miri, what on earth?
Miranda: It's Ariel. She's COMING!
Devika: Ariel? Like Ariel your sister?
Miranda: She's not JUST my sister, she's my EVIL TWIN!!!
Taelyn: Um, Mister Thorne... how could Miranda have...
Thorne: Don't, Tae. Just don't.
Miranda: Okay, if we left EVERYTHING behind and got into the Jeep RIGHT NOW we could make it to another state by the time she got here.
Devika: The letter only says she'll be here "soon".
Miranda: And that was last WEEK! Oh, Vee! What are we going to DO?!
Miranda: But VEE!! You don't KNOW!!!
Devika: No, now stop it. We're just going to make the best of it and have a great Christmas anyway. (quietly) I hope...
