A/N: We were blown away by the generosity of Team Whitlock-Masen in the Eclipse Fandom Gives Back. One of the incentives we offered was 10 drabbles for every $100, which was supposed to end up with a 60-drabble arc. As you can see, these particular boys had a lot more to say We want to say thank you, Team WM, for your contributions to such a worthy cause, and we really hope you enjoy this story!

Thank you as always to EchoesOfTwilight, kimberlycullen10, and theladyingrey42 for prereading. You ladies rock!




"Hurry up, Emmett. I need to have this order finished sometime today."

Emmett grumbles under his breath, struggling to open the new container of sugar syrup for the last batch of candy we'll be making today.

We've already worked through seven batches, and we're both down to our undershirts.

Emmett grouses about the heat as he pours the syrup in the boiler, and I chuckle, telling him to take a minute to cool down and dry up while I watch it.

When he comes back, we switch, and I gulp down water before wiping my sweat-drenched face with a towel.


Happy New Year, from SorceressCirce and naelany! We hope y'all have a happy and healthy year ahead.
