Commander Eric Myers sat alone in his bedroom, glass of whiskey in one hand and his beloved Quantum defender in the other. Looking up at the calendar on his wall he growled at the large red circle and the date it concealed;

December 25th

The one time of year that the whole world goes crazy, the supposed time of good cheer and brotherly love that only made Eric laugh. If there was so much good will and Christmas cheer in the world, he wouldn't be sat alone in the dark praying he wouldn't have to face the night. Swallowing the last of his drink, he let the burn of the whiskey pull his mind away from the darkness until he wasn't aware of the room around him.

"For god sake Eric every year, you'd think I was forcing you to jump head first off a cliff? it's just my fathers Christmas party not the end of the world" growled Wesley Collins as he entered the room making Eric hiss as Wes forced open the curtain and let the light into the room.

Wesley James Collins was the only son and soul heir to Alan Collins COE and founder of Bio Tec Labs, it had been only a few years since Wes and Eric had been part of the Time Force Ranger's but in that time they had become closer friends and stronger lover much to Mr Collins dismay but despite their differences Mr Collins and Eric had found a common ground shortly after Eric fell pregnant with Wes's son Sky.

So reluctantly Mr Collins had relented on his opinion of Eric and allowed him to accompany Wes to his Christmas party, only to discover that despite his bravado Eric was truly petrified of those who travelled in Mr Collins's circle of friends. So after this discovery much to Wes's happiness and Eric's dismay every year after both he and Wes where invited to the party at the Collins mansion.

"Yeah and every year the same thing happens, we get there I look out of place, you leave me with the kids, someone get to drunk on that expensive shit you drink and me and the kid have to leave because 'we don't apparently belong there' not this year Wes" growled Eric as Wes sighed and sat next to his lover, taking Eric's hand in his he lent over and kissed him.

"What if I told you this year will be different, that I had a plan to get back at my father for making a fool of us both?" said Wes with the trademark 'Collins your fucked' look on his face making Eric laugh before returning the kiss from earlier.

It was approaching 10 pm and once again Eric found himself stood alone in the corner, dressed like an idiot and being shot the dirtiest looks ever. He was about ready to call it a night when Phillips the Collins's butler announced that some unexpected guests had arrived.

"Ah Phillips that would be my fault, dad sorry about this but seeing how you didn't give Eric and I time to decline your invitation due to the fact we had prior plans I invited them here" said Wes slyly as Eric watched Alan Collins growl but grudgingly reply to his son.

Suddenly Eric realised what Wes had done when he saw the familiar green hair of the young man Eric had come to call a friend.

"I believe you remember the other Rangers?" said Wes with a grin as he watched the guest cringe at the appendance and multi-ethnicity of the Rangers, Eric on the other hand was delighted with both his lover and his plan and settled in to see how the night unfolded.

"Told you I had a plan," laughed Wes just loud enough for Eric to hear as he wrapped his arms round his lover.

"Yes you did," laughed Eric

"After this stunt I doubt we'll be invited back" laughed Wes as he kissed Eric ignoring the looks.

"Oh poor us" said Eric as the best part of the night walked in making all eyes fall on Mr Collins.

"Got to love Alex and his entrances," laughed Wes as he and Eric left and headed to find their children, sometimes revenge was sweet and sometime it was just perfect.
