Shadowsan: And so concludes this year’s Secret Santa drawing.
Everyone gathered in a break room while they see their paper with the name of the person who will give them a gift
Shadowsan: Just a quick reminder of the rules: $40 limit, no perishable items, and no mints, Devineaux.
Chase: Fine, more mints for me then.
Gray: Oh, Shadowsan. I would like a $40 gift card to any restaurant that serves nachos.
Shadowsan: I don’t have you, Calloway.
Gray: Not only do I know that you do indeed have me, but I also know who eveybody else has.
Ivy: That’s not possible.
Gray: Perhaps not for an ordinary person such as yourself, Ivy.
Ivy looking at him with angry eyes and Chief reassures her by putting a hand on her shoulder.
Gray: But for the brilliant mind of Detective Sherlock Calloway --I legally changed my name-- it’s quite simply...
Gray rises from his place, standing in front of everyone, next to Shadowsan.
Everyone is confused
Gray: For, you see, Carmen made a face I only recognized from our bedroom, which means that she has Shadowsan.
Carmen holds her cup of coffee avoiding her gaze.
Gray: Zach has Ivy. His eyes keep shifting over to her.
Zach: No, I don’t *Look quickly at Ivy as he eats his cereal*
Gray: Ivy looked disgusted, which means she has Chase.
*Ivy is surprised at the correct deduction*
Gray: Chief didn’t draw a name, nor did she put one in. She doesn’t wanna participate.
Chief: Never do. *drink her coffee*
Gray: Chase moves his mouth when he reads and he quite clearly said Zach.
Chase: I did get Zach!
Gray: Julia has Carmen. She’s hold her paper name-side out.
Julia: Oh, He’s good *she notices her action, blushing a little at her little mistake*
Gray: And I have Julia, which means Shadowsan has me. I’ll be taking that gift card. Daddy loves nachos.
Gray clasps his hands as he smiles and bites his lip victoriously. The entire room goes silent as Shadowsan looks at Gray, thus reaching a conclusion in his mind.
Shadowsan: Should we draw the names again and leave Gray out?
Gray: No! Sherlock wants a present!
