The First Noel Chptr 5Tanya sat in her seat, transfixed by the images flying past her. Building after dark, ominous building sped through her vision faded into the distance. Before she knew it, the city had slipped away and vast swaths of snow covered trees had her smiling in wonder. Never had she seen such clean, white snow. It had always been a gray mush, something she never touched, never picked up. She had learned long ago that the salt filled snow was too harsh on her fingers, but this, this white fluff was something else. It covered the trees, it was almost magic, a whole different kind of winter than what she was used to. She wanted to hold it, to fall into it, she had to validate that it wasn’t a dream. So she gently patted Jazz’s door, and looked down at her feet as she made her demure request.
“Um, do you think we could stop, please?”
In response Jazz slowed, and came to a stop. Concern colored his tone as his voice issued from the speakers.
The First Noel Chptr 4Tears still slipped from the corners of Tanya's eyes, as she held tight to the giant's leg. She sniffled as she thought of how right daddy had been. God can hear you, even when you don't talk to him. So much had happened to her, she had been so alone for so long, all she could have ever wanted was a friend. She had never known that her deepest prayer would be granted before she even voiced it. Now she had someone to be there, someone who might be able to get her away from mama, someone who could save her from the life she had right now.
She held her hand outstretched knowing that any normal person would back away, he was huge but he had saved her twice now, and his smile had an air of gentleness that told her he meant no harm. So, she pushed any misgivings aside, who was she to question a miracle.
A smile still pulled at his face as he lowered a large finger to her.
As her hand touched the cold metal that comprised his finge
The First Noel Chptr 3Throughout the night Tanya had drifted in and out of consciousness, grasping at images and sounds that only gave her a vague awareness that she hadn't been alone all night. The image of a hulking figure standing over her filled her mind as she slowly came to, it seemed so vivid, she was fairly sure she hadn't imagined it. Aching filled her stiff joints as she stretched slowly, and her eyes fluttered open. The immediate onset of confusion took her as she lifted herself from a familiar black leather seat, and turned to face the same dash board and tinted windows she had woken up to the morning before. She twisted in her seat slightly, and was greeted by a familiar friend. Sitting on the center consul, was the teddy bear her dad had given her just before he left. She knew teddy had been in her box when she left yesterday. How had they both ended up here?
Skepticism had her reaching cautiously for teddy, she pinched his ear making sure he was real, and yanked him cautiously into her arms.
The First Noel Chptr 2Tanya rolled on her side and reached out for teddy only to feel her hand rest on the smooth, warm leather that had cradled her through the night. She propped herself up and rubbed at her eyes as the sun lanced through the heavily tinted windows around her, it pricked at her already groggy senses. She turned a drowsy gaze to the floor of the car and slowly scooped teddy into her arms as she soaked up the gentle warmth around her for one last time before venturing back into cold. She had slept later than she wanted, and knew she was pushing her luck by staying in the warm car. Bracing herself for the icy wind, she wrapped one arm around her chest as she pulled the handle and heaved the door open.
She shuffled through the dirty, gray snow that had formed a thin layer on the pavement over night and headed for her box. A rumble erupted from her tummy, and she bent down to sift through the damp plastic bags she had stuffed in the back of her home. No food, and mama hadn't come home yet. Mama

Winter in Detroit was always a bitter, biting cold that Tanya had become all too familiar with. The piercing frosty day was turning her small fingers numb as she sat huddled inside her make shift home close to the wall of a brick building. She was only 7, but she had learned quickly where to find warmth. She pulled her hole ridden gloves from her hands, and held them up to a vent in the wall. Warm air was continuously flowing out, and providing a faint comfort to the area around her, but she couldn't stay there. Mama had left a w
