Days turned to weeks and Rosabel was happier than she had ever been. She was still staying at Neverland with Michael, Janet, Mac, Elijah and Simone. It was now the middle of December and Rosabel was getting più and più curious about Christmas. She had seen it snow for the first time, had her first snowball fight and built her first snowman all in one day. She had seen countless adverts for Natale presents on TV and had already made her letter for Santa. The peculiar thing was that Neverland House still wasn't decorated. When Rosabel had asked Michael why the house wasn't decorated, he told her that he was waiting for his Natale helpers. In a way he was. Janet had told him she had got someone to help them decorate the house. She wouldn't tell him who though. He had asked her to get someone because he wanted to surprise the children da completely transforming Neverland overnight.
That evening, when Rosabel was getting ready for bed, she couldn't help asking about Santa one più time.
"Are te sure Santa is gonna come?" She asked, while Michael was tucking her in bed.
"Absolutely. He told me himself. He might even stay awhile and decorate the house."
"If he comes will te wake me up and tell me?"
"Maybe. He gets real shy around children though. Do te want to know a secret?"
"Promise not to tell?"
"The quicker te get to sleep, the quicker Santa will get here."
"Yep. So te better sleep quick." Michael finished tucking Rosabel in then gave her a goodnight baciare and headed downstairs.
When he got downstairs, he noticed that there were several cardboard boxes in piles all over the lounge. He suddenly heard two voices that seemed to be coming from the hall and it sounded like their owners were making their way to the lounge. The first person that entered was Janet, holding a box filled with decorations and the person behind her was carrying a stack of boxes that covered their face.
"Who's this, Janet?"
"You really had to ask?" The person said.
Michael went over to the person and took the box that was covering their face. "Elizabeth!" He exclaimed. "Do te want a hand?"
"That'd be great."
Michael took other boxes from Elizabeth and started looking through them. He found all sorts of decorations from different coloured tinsel to the stella, star for the Natale tree. The heaviest box was filled with neatly wrapped presents.
"So what did te get me Elizabeth?" Michael asked playfully.
"That's for me to know and te to find out."
"Is it a super soaker?"
"Two super soakers?"
"How about three super soakers?"
"No. You'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out."
Michael was about to protest but then a small white dog came running into the room and it sat down da Elizabeth.
"Oh God." Michael muttered.
"What's wrong Michael?" Elizabeth asked. "Don't te like dogs?"
"They're little but they bite." Michael replied, sheepishly.
Janet and Elizabeth laughed at his remark.
"Don't worry, she won't cause any trouble."
Once all of the decorations were unpacked, the three of them decorated every inch of Neverland house and they didn't finish until 2am. da the time the last decoration was hung up, all of them were exhausted and they all fell asleep almost immediately.
The successivo morning, Rosabel woke up to find her room heavily decorated with Natale decorations. There were chains of silver snowflakes hanging on the walls, glowing angeli in the corners of the room, sparkly baubles tied together with ribbon and even multicoloured twinkling lights that were spread out all across the room. Rosabel rushed downstairs, without bothering to change and went into the lounge where everyone else was. The lounge was even più beautiful than her room. Tinsel and bells hung from the ceiling, statues of snowmen and elves stood in the corners, ribbons and baubles were attached to the furniture and successivo to the fireplace was a giant Chritmas tree. It was draped with lights and decorations and on the superiore, in alto it had a oro stella, star that gleamed brightly.
"Merry Natale Rosabel!" Michael said. "Come and sit down with us." Rosabel did as Michael detto and sat successivo to him in front of the Natale tree. "Oh, and this is Elizabeth Taylor."
Rosabel gave Elizabeth a quick wave then started playing with the decorations at the bottom of the tree. She noticed the huge pile of presents underneath the tree.
"Are we gonna open the presents soon?" She asked.
"We'll do them right now." Elizabeth said.
"I'm gonna be Santa and give them out to everybody." Mac said. He picked up a present wrapped in red wrapping paper and read the label. "This one is for...Michael." He detto and gave it to him.
Michael took it and opened it gingerly.
"I knew it!" He said.
"What did te get Michael?" Elijah asked.
Michael held up a brand new super soaker and laughed as he saw everyone's shocked faces.
"Who's bright idea was it to give him that?" Simone said.
"Now I know how to wake everyone up in the morning." Michael detto mischieviously.
"The successivo one is for...Rosabel." Mac said.
Rosabel was handed a present that was wrapped in sparkly rosa wrapping paper. She tore off the paper and found herself holding a large black box. She took the lid off and her mouth fell open as she saw what was inside. In the box was a black fedora, on superiore, in alto of a sparkly white glove, which was on black trousers with a white stripe down the side, a white shirt, a black sparkly giacca and at the bottom was a pair of black loafers. She looked at the label and saw a little message. It said:
Merry Christmas! I hope te enjoy celebrating your first Christmas. I know you'll Amore this present.
All my love,
"I'm gonna try it on right now." Rosabel said. She took the box and went upstairs to change while the others continued opening their presents. When she had finished changing, Rosabel went back downstairs and moonwalked into the lounge. It fitted her perfectly.
"So that's what Michael got you!" Janet said.
"Do te like it?" Michael asked.
"I Amore it!"
"Maybe te could dance for us later."
Rosabel sat down again and opened the rest of her presents. Suddenly there was a knock at one of the doors.
"I'll get it." Michael said.
Little did he know, the person at the door was the last person he expected to see.
