"Happy Santa Claus day!" Abby chirped, appearing in Thomas' door. Thomas coughing violently in response and then he groaned and leaned his head back against the pillows. "Huh. Still feeling poorly?" Abby asked, stepping closer to his bed.

An eleven-year-old Peter was standing in front of his drunken father as the man went on and on about how he was a disappointment to the family. Peter had been the recipient of a rather nasty-looking black eye and Klaus Kempf was of the opinion that Peter should have given the boy who had caused it a black eye in return. Peter wasn't like that. He wasn't a fighter. So he stood in front of his father, his head bowed in shame, waiting for his father to tire of his tirade.

December 24th, 1981

It may have been Christmas, but all was not merry in the Kemp household. Despite the immaculate decorations provided by the help, and the happily twinkling lights, blinking inanely away without a care in the world, the Kemp Manor House seemed to be the very antithesis of 'merry'.

There was nothing more that Abby could do in Bristol. Julian had well and truly proven that if he didn't want to be found, they weren't going to find him. And Joe had Lavinia, Eleanor and Jordan to look after him. Thomas didn't have anyone in his family and while Abby knew he was surrounded by friends, she rather wanted him to have family by his side as well. It was important. And she was damn sure he didn't want other people touching him right now. She would keep him from that as much as she could.

Peter's experience with the drugs that Katherine had given him had put him off wanting to be adventurous again any time in the near future. To be truthful, it had sort of put him off Katherine. He hadn't spoken to her since she'd left his guesthouse after he'd vomited for the third time. Apparently she didn't find vomit half as pretty when it was all over her. Picky.

Malachy's personal belongings had been returned to him, and he had been sent out into the cold world once again, feeling full and with the memory of warmth filling his mind. The memory of warmth won't keep one warm for long, however, and by the time he reached the abandoned building he had Ardal had been squatting in, his teeth were chattering.

And Ardal was nowhere to be seen.

Dublin was full of old buildings, most of which had some sort of vent at the bottom because all the heat generated in the course of the day had to go somewhere.Most of the vents opened up onto the street, however, and they did people like Mal and Ardal very little good. Ardal was a reported run away and if he was picked up by the cops, they would find out who he was and he would be taken right back home to Whitehead. Even if Mal had begun to think that maybe that wasn't such a bad idea for Ardal, Ardal clearly didn't want it.

Finding the tumbledown house that they were seeking temporary shelter in empty didn't worry Mal O'Reilly at first. It was common for Mal and Ardal Quinn to split up when money issues were dire and they figured they would fare better by covering more ground. Mal didn't like taking money for nothing, but Ardal wasn't above asking for it, so he often went and spare-changed people while Mal found somewhere to play. And Ardal excelled at getting people's sympathy too. Something to do with his baby face. When Ardal wasn't in the house when Mal arrived, Mal simply figured he was having a productive day. He certainly hoped so...

"You're acting funny." Ardal Quinn announced into the darkness in the vague direction of his boyfriend, Malachy. The abandoned warehouse they were staying in now wasn't exactly well-lit. Mal stepped into the dim light streaming in through the window and he raised his eyebrows at Ardal.
