A hunters will always be lit, but so will a prey with a job who is choosing to use it that night. Like me, or a doctor.
If they don't use it, it won't be lit. A normal prey's will always be dark.
I watched England's window last night.
It was lit up.
And...happy holidays. I hope everyone is feeling better.

Poland, Estonia, Finland, Hungary and any other nations who'd care to listen. I'd like your attention please.
Now then. We don't normally celebrate Christmas until January, but I thought it would be nice if we all got together for a dinner of some sort on the twenty fifth. My sister and Latvia will not be able to join us of course. And....well ....there's well...
[For a moment she thinks she's forgetting something. But no. There's no one....]
Estonia. Of course. I'll expect you there. Don't make me come and find you.
I wish everyone a happy holidays. Please stop by the flower shop someday. We have some lovely flowers for the holidays again. Be careful of the snow though. You never know when General Winter will show up after all.....
A. At home. Ukraine is humming and cleaning things up in the house.
B. You're at the flower shop. Looking around. When suddenly.]
Can I help you?
[There is a Ukraine behind you.]
[C. In the park building a snowman. This is nothing compared to her winters back home. She doesn't seem cold at all.]
ah....Things like that.
Oh, that reminds me. I thought it would be nice if sometime we celebrated some holidays other then American ones. It might stop the town from ruining them t-too,....
So does anyone have any holidays they'd like to celebrate?
....oh and also ...Russia is gone again.

B. Ukraine is working in the flower store. If you come in the store, she'll be arranging some sun flowers. ]
Oh...hello?...Can I help you with something?
[C. Ukraine is outside her house, raking some leaves and singing a song in Ukrainian. Watch out for stray leaves hitting you if you walk by]
Oh. I was thinking of offering knitting lessons if anyone was interested in them. Just call back if you are.
[A. In the house, checking up on her two daughters.
B. Working at the flower shop, just putting some flowers on display.
C. If you're not responding to the phone or seeing her at the flower shop and Ukraine knows you, she is coming over to visit.]
Ah, y-you might know by now....b-but my brother is...here again.
Only he's from before....w-well before a lot. He thinks it is 1812.
She never thought she'd miss being tricked into spending a weekend at his house.
But life goes on, and so does she. Only she's been a lot quieter lately. You can find her
A. At work in the flower shop. She's a little distracted as she arranges some flowers. They're not sunflowers. She's been avoiding those recently.
B. Sitting off to the side in the park on a bench. She's not crying, really. It's just...the light, dirt, something stuck in her eyes.
C. Outside her house, she's trying to cheer herself up by working in the garden, you can find her there humming her national anthem as she works, a little sadder sounding then she usually sounds with this tune.]
Brother, those memories were not real. That boy is just a friend. Do not bother him.
[Filtered to Akane.]
....ah. I'm v-very sorry for brother....and....all that. ....other...things...
[Action: At home Ukraine is in a much better mood then she was only that morning. She's listening to some music in the living room. She got some Ukrainian music back you see. She is listening to it, this song in particular, as she looks through a box of what looks like pencils and small dishes. After a while.]
Ah, hello this is Ukraine. I know it's still a while till Easter and...some people don't have that holiday at all. But I was thinking about decorating some eggs. If anyone would like to learn how to make pysanky, I'd be happy to teach them.
Sister, Garnet.....now even Pamela seemed to be gone. With a sigh she picks up the phone.]
Ah..I'm s-sorry to bother people....b-but has anyone else noticed there....are a lot of people being droned recently?
......Garnet and Pamela are gone. And....so is s-sister....and R-Roshian....
[Trying not to cry so much, it's not working well.
Fail filter to Russia]
Brother?....Sis-sister didn't do anything to get in trouble did she?....
And....and can I come over and see you?
Sister, brother! Where are you. Please tell me you're alright!
[Action: You can also find Ukraine running around town searching for her brother and sister. For some reason she seems to think they're starving... it might have something to do with her present]
If anyone else would like a scarf, or a hat, or mittens to keep out the cold I would be glad to make you some. It's not nearly as cold as winter at home but it's very important to stay warm.
Brother, sister! Remember to wear your warm clothes when you go out. I don't wan't you to catch a cold!
[Filtered/action to family]
Ah Pamela, Garnet. I was wondering, do you have Christmas in your worlds?
Brother...Sister? Where are you?
Please stop hiding from big sister...is not funny.
[All replies will be from tinykiev]
Ah,. Just wanted to say that everyone should be careful. Th-the men in the suits broke into our house ye-yesterday....and killed entire family.
Ju-just thought I should say th-that. ...Probably already know.
[Yes she is shaken.]

Thank you for doing that Sist-....
-am sorry...will understand if you do not wish to hear from me ever again. But just wanted to appologize first.
I...don't know how I could do such horrible things to you.
[Ukraine picked up the phone as she waved to one of her drone children.]
Oh hello? Was just calling to say if there are any people still blind there is a small boy that-
[There's a mumble as a drone comes up to her holding soemthing]
Ah, mail for me? Well mother's on the phone right now sweety...are you sure?....alright....
[She takes the envelope that her child gave to her and starts to open it as she continues]
Ah am sorry, was just saying that this boy is able to heal you if you're.....still....bli-
[And if you're listening on the other end you can hear a shriek of pain as Ukraine falls to her knees.]
[.....she was trying to keep calm. She was trying very hard to keep calm. She is the eldest she needs to be the strong one.....she had to be strong like Vietnam said. Her voice is strained but unwavering. ]
Brother, sister. Are you alright?
Luke....please Roshia. Is Luke alright?
Was anyone else blinded?
