Christmas was nearing for boyfriends Patton and Roman. It was their first Christmas spent living together and they wanted it to be extremely special. Unfortunately, with every affordable way of living as well as celebrating, there were expenses on the other side of the coin. There were times when the worry would make Patton cling to his antique teddy bear, Crimson (who has been in his family for many years), before Patton would be held by Roman in a cuddle inception. Patton had been trying to save money through his job at the animal shelter to get himself a bakery, but it seemed the bills needed him more, even after splitting his income. As for Roman, he was planning to do multiple jobs related to creative arts, from caricature artwork to auditioning for acting gigs to even playing his guitar and singing on the side of the road. He felt proud to have his guitar since it was a graduation gift from his Uncle Thomas, who always believed in him. Roman just wished the world took the arts more seriously financially.
The day was Christmas Eve and just about everyone was just finishing up their work at Sky's Chicken Mailers. At the establishment, the packages of prepared chicken were getting sorted to many places (homes, restaurants, shelters, etc.) in many forms (wings, legs, BBQ cubes, even the owner's favorite, buckets of chicken nuggets). As everyone was finishing their shifts, Sky stood on the nearest empty table and grabbed the attention of her employees.
Virgil was never really sure if a higher power existed, but he was certain that if said higher power wanted to punish his mother for marrying someone she never even loved to begin with, then they made a horrible decision defecting the kid. When Virgil's mother, Bethany, was younger, her parents see that much of a future for her, so they married her off to the first rich guy that showed interest in her, which went as well as one would expect. What she saw and what others didn't see was a sexist man who preferred Bethany to be seen and not heard, would threaten to cheat on her if she didn't give him sex, burn her with a skillet if he didn't like the food she made, etc. When Virgil was born and was later found out to be colorblind, Bethany was blamed for it immediately. Apparently from needing accommodations for colorblindness and feeling powerless as his father berated his mother, Virgil's life wasn't too bad. He accepted that nothing could really be done for his colorblindness, but he had dreams in his life of a voice telling him not to make his parents' mistakes and to find someone who would "color his world". He always found the claim ridiculous, but hope did linger in the back of his head.
Everyone expected Roman to have one of the easiest jobs in Thomas's mind since he was the aspect of accepted creativity. Well, apart from the atelophobia (since everyone was acknowledging it), one big issue that nobody really considered was that materializing certain things without help exhausted the Prince. As a result, he didn't often materialize anything that was too big since it would take a lot of time, but handheld objects or clothes were better.
