It was nearing midnight and the dawn of a new year.

Mister Smith sat on the lush grass of the temple garden where it always seemed to be Spring, his back resting against the trunk of Aille's favorite tree. Stars twinkled high above in a crystal clear sky.

The twins were sleeping on a soft blanket nearby, not at all concerned that they were going to miss the turning of the year.

At his right side, Aille leaned against him, her head on his shoulder, her hand toying with a button on his shirt. Rose leaned against him on the left and struggled to keep her eyes open. Midnight was well past her bedtime but she was determined to stay awake and share it with her family.

"What time is it now, Daddy?" asked Rose.

He glanced at the pocket watch resting on the grass and smiled. "Ten more minutes."

"Will there be fireworks when the new year comes?"

"There might," he said. "We'll see in a few more minutes."

With his arms around his ladies, he gave them both a hug that pulled them even closer. "Thank you for making this the best year of my life. I love you."
