A Very Haunted Christmas

Everyone arrived at Millie's house about the same time---As Charlie and I pulled up, we saw the others going in. The place was decorated for Christmas, and Millie's kitchen counter was covered with cookies and snacks.
Last year, instead of any kind of a gift exchange, Theresa had declared a cookie exchange instead. We'd been ordered to all bring cookies to trade off. She'd decreed the same thing this year, which nobody thought was a bad idea.
"I didn't have time to bake," I admitted. "I brought a can of store-bought cookies. But I can make up for it. I was at my dad's place yesterday, and I brought back some of the local sodas." I placed several cans on the counter.
"A-Treat!" Ailish said. "You told me about those!"
Jen took a can, smiling. "I remember A-Treat."
"That's right, you lived out that way, didn't you?"
Millie tried a blue raspberry one. "These are really good."
"Yeah, they're excellent sodas."
"Well, I want to try a sarsparilla," said Theresa, opening one up.
"I brought presents," said Jen, and passed each of us a special can of cookies and a card.
I smiled. "Thanks, Jen. That's sweet."
"Millie, I love your icicle lights," said Haunna.
"Sometimes, I just sit and look at them," Millie told her. "They're nice to watch."
"So, did anyone get anything from the investigation at Sara's place?" Theresa asked.
Charlie took out her camera. "Only one orb."
"I got some EVPs I want you all to look at," said Jen.
"Let's grab a seat, and go over things," said Theresa. "Lou, you had that overnight investigation with the other team?"
"Yeah," I said. "I was going to report on that. There was some stuff they did pretty well. They worked well as a team, and they were ncie people. But---And I know I'm prejudiced here---I gotta say I prefer you guys. You're my friends, and I'd rather be with you."
"Did they have a kick-ass grandmother on their team?" Millie asked.
I grinned. "No, that's another thing they were missing."
I looked up at the icicle lights on Millie's window. They actually were sort of hypnotic.

You know, I don't mean to be that bossy. ;-D

If you came off sounding bossy in this post, I apologize---I really didn't mean it to sound that way. You're supposed to give us some orders---You're the leader!
