Twas the night before Christmas. All through the highway, not a car was moving. Not even Peter’s. Horns were honking. People were shouting. The blizzard was worse than ever, but Highway Patrol was not letting anyone enter the city that night. Peter pounded on his steering wheel and gave out an aggravated sigh.

The Patrol Officers were making each car turn around one-by-one. At this rate, he’d never get home to Claire and the kids on time. He imagined those heartbroken looks on kids’ faces when wake up on Christmas morning and see that Daddy hasn’t returned home yet.

Peter squinted out of his windshield. Would he able to—? Would the snow be thick enough to conceal him? Will he—? With all of these people around?

He grabbed his overnight bag from the passenger side seat, turned off his car, and exited. His car will be blocking those behind him and it will definitely be towed, but he didn’t care. The other cars can drive around him and he’ll have the money to the towing fees. All that mattered was spending Christmas Eve with his family.

He walked over to the shoulder and took one last look around. No one would notice. Clutching his bag in his hand, he concentrated on floating. His feet left the ground and he entered the sky.

The snow was stinging his face and the wind was whistling in his ears. But pretty soon, he’ll be with Claire, and the twins, Elijah and Arwen.
