Despite the countless calendar variations we live by, Selmak somehow always knows when it’s December back on Earth. Well, I say somehow. It’s really not a mystery, since I pay attention to that particular calendar more than any other and thus so does he.

So, anyway. It’s Christmas again, and Selmak is doing his best to ignore my seasonal grumpiness, but when the chance to head home for the holidays for the first time since my blending comes along, he gently encourages me to go.

So I do, and Selmak experiences the holidays firsthand.

He wants to do everything, and I indulge him. He is truly like a kid at Christmas, asking questions constantly. Though Selmak certainly understands rituals, Earth’s holiday traditions seem to mystify him, which bemuses me. Everything about this is new for him and I find myself smiling at his excitement over something truly novel.

We have a big family dinner, and for the most part, it goes well. Sam, of course, is fine. Mark’s wife is lovely, and the children are more fun than should be legal. Both Selmak and I love them, and they take to us easily. Mark himself, though, well, he’s another story. We might be on speaking terms now, but things are still awkward.

I meet my son’s eyes across the room as I bounce his daughter on my knee and he looks away.

I feel Selmak’s gentle nudging again, but this time, I ignore it. He’ll give me hell about it later, but I’m just not ready for what he wants.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful. I really am. Selmak has given me another chance at life, and I don’t want to throw that way, but even with a symbiote, some damages take a lot longer to fix than cancer.
