His strides ate up the expensive Oriental carpeting. When he was a mere twelve inches from her, Colette’s neck craned to look up into his face. Now, so close to his glittering eyes, every nerve in her body lit up like the sun. Her heart thundered against her ribs, and her teeth grabbed her bottom lip—probably more to have something to do rather than chatter.

“Hello.” His voice matched his eyes—deep and assured.

With a small wink, Charlotte scooted away, and the room constricted, narrowing down to him as if all the people around them had been pushed away by invisible hands.

“Hi. I’m …” Why was she having such trouble forming words? As a foreign language translator, she was usually much quicker with them—in four languages.

“Colette. Yes, I know.”

Of course, he knew. Everyone in the room likely had a dossier on her already—something with big letters that said, “Look, but don’t touch.”

Alexander’s club application was akin to filling out a college application—and one that only allowed her entry to tonight’s introduction party. Nothing beyond. Apparently, to join the club officially, one must have a background check worthy of the CIA.

The masked man held out a hand, which she took.

Warm flesh engulfed her hand. “Enjoying yourself?”

She nodded. Enjoying wasn’t the word she’d use, but it’d do.

“Anything in particular catch your eye?” His hand kept possession of hers.

Okay, small talk was underrated anyway. “I’m not sure yet. But nothing I’ve seen has me running for the hills—yet.” She tried to sound light, flirty. Instead, her voice came out thin and little more than a squeak.

“I’m glad to hear it.” He studied her face. “You look beautiful tonight, Colette. But then, you always did.” He flipped her hand over and pressed a small card into her palm. “Think about it.”

He then released his handhold and strode away.

Wait a minute. Always did? She glanced down at the little card he’d given her. It read:  Griffin Miles Storm.

Her brain froze along with every part of her body. He couldn’t be.

On the back, he’d written a note in large-scrolled handwriting. My office. Thursday. 12 noon.

No address. But he didn’t need to give one, did he? She knew exactly where his office was. Knew who he was.

Holy. Shit. She glanced around, her eyes searching for him, a man she hadn’t believed she’d ever see again.

Christmas Letter from Club Accendos

Alexander Rockingham, from the Elite Doms of Washington series, insisted on writing a Christmas letter this year to catch everyone up on what club members are up to. If you haven’t visited the world of Club Accendos, read more here.

~~~~

Friends, Family, Lovers,

From my home to yours, Happy Holidays. The Tribunal Council members send warm greetings and wishes for peace and joy this season.

Let us start by reaffirming that the Tribunal Council remains steadfast—as I do—in ensuring Club Accendos is a year-round welcoming and safe place for you, our chosen family. The holidays can be difficult for some. Per tradition, Club Accendos will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week between December 1 and January 1. You have a place here.

Also consider this letter your invitation to our annual Christmas Eve party, Christmas Day lunch, and New Year’s Eve ball.

Clothing is optional at the New Year’s Eve ball but mandatory for all Christmas events due to children’s presence. (I mean it, Lina.)

Speaking of children, Derek and Samantha announce they’ve had another baby girl—Clementine—who is as beautiful as her mother. Clementine joins my perfect godson Alexander and equally-perfect, first daughter Lilibeth. Derek’s message on the family news is as expected: all potential suitors of Clementine and Lilibeth can forget it—in advance.

Samantha’s dance studio, Aerobesque Dance Studios, continues to empower women through movement. Invitations to perform keep rolling in–including from the Kennedy Center and The White House–but Sam’s focus remains on her students, after Derek and her children.

Sarah, Steffan and Laurent expanded their family as well this year with two West Highland White Terriers, Bonnie and Clyde. Bonnie has Steffan wrapped around her little paw and has distracted him enough for Clyde to regularly rifle through Laurent’s closet. Clyde apparently prefers the Harry’s of London brand socks to chew over all others.

Check out the two dog’s Instagram and TikTok accounts. They are the face of Sarah’s new clothing line, Westillioux, now being worn by Oprah and Jennifer Aniston.

Carson and London visited Singapore this year to study sustainable architecture for their third house and designed by her brother, Benny, a remarkable architect whose client list is ever-growing. London holds out hope for comfortable furniture in their new home. Carson doesn’t understand but London loves him anyway.

Kudos to Carson’s legal nonprofit, Youth Freedom, which landed on the New York Times Non Profits to Watch in 2022. He’ll be angry I included this tidbit. London would be angrier if I didn’t so… Congratulate him when you see him. It’s good for him.

Marcos, now fully retired, and Isabella have been working on expanding her Garden Grace Foundation, which brings trailblazing green designs to developments and communities. I’m told pencil skirts and high heel boots are now all the rage in garden wear thanks to the recent paparazzi photos of her working in their home garden. Marcos also was happily cleared of all allegations he was behind certain photographer’s sudden career slumps.

Club Accendos was very lucky to have Isabella make time in her busy schedule to work on our gardens this year. Happily, our Monarch butterfly visitors have grown because of it. Check out the art gallery in the main hallway. Eric’s paintings capturing the molting of the last few who graced our grounds.

Jonathan and Christiana’s Foundation, which works with mental health issues of our youth continues to flourish. Their focus on ensuring no child should ever have to worry about their safety, future, or who they love won two new awards this year. The couple also opened their home to several new foster children. I have serious doubts any of them will ever leave. Expect to meet several of their kids Christmas Day at Accendos.

Daisy, their first adopted daughter, turns fourteen on Christmas Day. She shares Christiana’s entrepreneurial spirit, and now offers baby-sitting services for club members while they go “on a (play) date.” Club members sign NDAs stating they will never mention of what the date entails. Correct, club members?

Ryan and Yvette say there is nothing to report in this year’s letter. According to them, the fact two bedframes in Room B3 had to be replaced means nothing.

As for me, I remain blessed beyond what I deserve thanks to the love and dedication of Eric and Rebecca. Eric continues to paint and will be showing his latest collection on New Year’s Day at the grand opening of the refurbished Arts & Industries Building.

Yes, Eric, you are. You’re welcome.

Rebecca continues to dangle vacation trips before me. She argues I can leave the Club in Sarah’s very capable hands. She’s right on the latter, though I would miss all of you if I go away for too long. Clarisse has informed me the plane for the Mediterranean leaves January 2 regardless of my attitude. I am to be on it, which makes Clarisse the only person on the planet who can tell me what to do.

Then again, where Eric and Rebecca go, I go.

We look forward to hearing your news heading into 2023. In the meantime, as we ring in the New Year, remember this: You matter. You are important. You are loved.

Now be good. I’ll be watching.

~Alexander Rockingham III
