I like the thought of Nyssa drinking 'nog.

Chocolate curls and cinnamon decorate the top of the whiteness inside the glass. Sara watches as her lover inspects the glass, studies the chocolate and cinnamon inside the clear cup. Nyssa doesn't catch a whiff of anything as she holds the cup but, then, some poisons are undetectable by the senses.

Sara simply smiles as she raises her glass cup to her lips, drinking to show the other woman that there's no poison.

“What is this?”

“Eggnog,” Sara replies and finishes hers. It brings back --- she doesn't allow her mind to slip there. “I thought, while we're away, why not try it?” She lowers her cup, sets it down on the bed beside her; they're in a small room. “We're not anywhere but where we want to be right now.

“I saw lights decorating trees, songs blaring from radios and throats. They declared the season at large.

“So why not try this, pretend we're not here to kill someone and enjoy the season?”

Nyssa regards the contents of the cup carefully. “Where did you get this?”

“I made it.”

“Sara …”

“I bought it,” she admitted, slowly. “Drink up and we can walk around to see the lights?”

Nyssa sighs, and drinks.
