"Mommy! They came!" Madison yelled loud enough to notify the entire neighborhood.
Jeannie rushed to the door as two very snowy men walked in. In spite of the snow, she hugged them both. "Mer! John! We didn't expect you today."
"Mommy said there was too much snow!" Madison hopped up and down in glee. "She didn't think you'd get here!"
"We hitched a ride," Rodney explained with a glance upward for Jeannie's benefit.
Jeannie nodded understanding. They had gotten the Daedalus to transport them here.
"A ride with who?" Madison demanded. "Did Santa give you a ride?"
John and Rodney looked at each other. John took off his wet jacket and Jeannie took it to hang up.
John knelt down and asked softly, "Can you keep a secret?"
Madison nodded solemnly.
"We got a ride from Rudolph and Olive," John said. "In Santa's sleigh."
"Olive?" Rodney asked, confused.
"Olive the other reindeer!" Madison said. "Don't you know, Uncle Mer?"
Jeannie giggled and John smiled at Madison.
"Yes," John said. "But you can't tell anyone."
"It's a secret!" she agreed. "Did you bring presents?"
"Madison!" Jeannie scolded.
"Yes, we brought presents," John said. "But they're for Christmas. You'll have to wait."
Jeannie sent them upstairs to their room, to settle in and change to dry clothes.
To maintain a level of secrecy, the Daedalus had dropped them off in a sheltered space in the park down the street.
They had walked through foot-deep snow to get to the Miller's house.
"Who the fuck is Olive?" Rodney demanded.
"You know the song?" John grinned.
"Yes, yes, everyone does," Rodney grumbled. "It's a damned ear-worm."
John sang, "All of the other reindeer, Used to laugh and call him names..."
Rodney looked baffled.
"All of... olive..." John enunciated.
Rodney hit him with a pillow.
