Liza took in the lush Douglas fir draped in white lights and colorful ornaments. “It’s missing something. Wait.” She opened the coat closet and took out a box while repressing her grin. Carrying it back, she announced, “We need a top for the tree.” With great flourish, she pulled it out, proudly holding it up.
Justice’s expression contorted somewhere between laughter and horror. “What the hell is that?”
“It’s a Christmas Chicken. Obviously.”
“Baby, there is nothing obvious about that.” He swiped it from her hand, holding it up. “Where did you get this?”
Liza had to admit, it was…different. It was formed from metal into the shape of a chicken and stood about five inches high. It had a jaunty red Santa hat on, and once it was plugged in, all the feathers lit up in green and red lights. “Online shopping.”
“No way are we putting this on the tree. This thing is an insult to Christmas.”
Liza stared at him in mock outrage, not willing to admit it had been one of her rare impulse buys. Chickens always made her think of Justice and his closeness with his grandmother. The woman had died before Liza met her, and yet, through Justice and this house, she felt a real connection to her. Or maybe it was just that she wished she had the kind of relationship with her grandmother that Justice had had with his. Of course she could tell him that, but it was more fun to tease him. “You haven’t heard the story of the Christmas Chicken?”
“No such thing.” Justice pinned her with his stare. “You’re making that up.”
“I am not.” Busying herself with repacking the unused decorations, she tried to think fast. “Come on, you have to have heard this. The one about…” Think! “…a chicken named Henrietta who heard the boys talking. She was going to be Christmas dinner. The chicken runs away and goes on a series of adventures.” Wow she was ripping off almost every children’s Christmas tale she’d ever read.
“Is that right? A chicken all by herself?”
She didn’t dare look at him or she’d bust up laughing. “Well, not by herself. She finds friends. You know, um…she rescues a deer after discovering him with his hoof caught in a fence.”
“Is that right?” Silky derision flowed in his tone. “Let me guess, a reindeer?”
“Sure.” Getting into her story now, Beth carefully closed the box lid. “Only the chicken hasn’t seen deer before, so he doesn’t know that this is a very special deer—”
“I call bullshit.”
She spun around, feigning outrage. “Are you doubting my Christmas Chicken?”
“I think you’re lying through your pretty teeth.” He advanced on her.
Liza backed up. “Nope. Totally the truth. I can’t believe you’d accuse me of lying.”
“I’m accusing, sweetheart. And I’m going to prove it with a little truth test.”
