Andromeda was curled in her armchair in the flat she was sharing with Ted, reading a book. Snow fell outside the window. She raised her head, hearing the door open, and saw her husband stepping in, covered with snow.
“Hello, Dromeda!” he said brightly, shutting the door behind him. “It’s cold out…”
Andromeda opened her mouth to respond, but she was distracted by the large red-and-white stocking cap on his head. “What on earth are you wearing, Ted?”
Ted looked confused. He reached up and touched his head. “It’s… it’s a hat.”
“That’s the silliest looking hat I’ve ever seen.”
“Well, it’s meant to be a Father Christmas hat, Dromeda…”
Andromeda stared, then burst into giggles. “A Father Christmas hat?”
“Well, yes. Haven’t you ever seen one before?”
“Only on Christmas cards,” Andromeda told him.
“Oh…” Ted looked self-conscious. “I’ll just take it off, then…”
“No!” Andromeda shook her head. “It looks lovely. Keep it on.”
That was one thing she truly loved about Ted. He could have silly ideas like wearing a Father Christmas hat, and she felt she could laugh at them without seeming childish. There was no forced dignity about Ted.
It was so different from home.
