Twelfth Day of Christmas
By: Dawn DeBraal
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me. Twelve drummers drumming, eleven pipers piping, ten lords a-leaping, nine ladies dancing, eight maids a-milking, seven swans a-swimming, six geese a-laying, five golden rings. Four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree.
"Quit bringing me stuff. I have no more room!" Dana shouted at Eddie. His face fell. He wanted to make this the best Christmas ever. Dana wondered why Eddie wasn't in jail yet. He started with animals and then graduated to human beings. Eddie was a serial killer.
