This was more difficult than Elijah thought. He stood in his bedroom as casually as was possible for him on a full scale day. His suit jacket was left flopped upon the lush king size bed and with his sleeves rolled up he stood there contemplating. His arms crossed over his chest and just his socks upon the carpet under his feet. For the sake of holiday cheer he would have to decide which pair of shoes he would have to sacrifice to the lounge downstairs. They would be set next to his siblings' shoes along the crook of the fireplace. Not close enough to burn, but they would have to be among the gift giving area.
"Why didn't we stop this tradition when we came overseas?" Elijah asked himself. He then shook his head and decided. Bending lightly he took up the polished brown dress shoes in his right hand and in a trained motion his black pair were slipped on. Taking up the suit jacket, he slipped it on and then made his way out of the room.
It was when he came to the lounge that his heart seemed to melt a little bit. As much as he couldn't stand this old French tradition of leaving shoes to ask for offerings on Christmas Night…. Seeing Niklaus' sneakers and Rebekah's night slippers there brought a sense that the family time was appreciated. Still cherished despite all their back and forth banter. Just a few days ago he ended up in a bit of a punching match with Klaus but still there were his shoes. With a smile Elijah stepped forward and placed his own shoes there along with there's.
They beat him to it as usual… Now just to figure out what to get them -- aside from shoe offerings.
