Wendy began working for her new boss Miss Hall. Priscilla was a unpleasant ill-mannered person towards Wendy her behaviour made it clear that she was nothing more then a commoner peasant, she looked down upon Wendy she bossed her around threaten bullied and black mailed her.
Adam proposed a favour to his Priscilla if she didn't mind decorating his home for a Christmas foundation party that his parents were gonna be throwing for important wealthy business class people who were gonna be sponsoring the opening night of the nutcracker production.
Priscilla only agreed to his proposal because it made her feel grand just like Adam her boyfriend, Adam's family were very rich people and well connected to wealthy business class sponsors and associates. Although Priscilla was not as wealthy as Adam she felt like she belonged to wealthy entrepreneur people and it involved her interests to attend all major extravagant parties & luxurious places with Adam at her side.
Adam has had a busy year traveling around places where his parents and their friends have been pumping money into local art and theatre communities, so all he wants to do is have a traditional relaxing Christmas and to spend it with his one true love Priscilla. Adam enjoys the Christmas season as it reminds him of his childhood when his grandmother was alive, Priscilla does not enjoy anything about Christmas, she loathes chaos, disorzination in her life, and people that ain't in the same league.
Wendy presented her designs to miss Hall and explained her ideas about decorating Adam's home based upon his first edition of a Christmas carol which would mean so much to him, because of priceless & sentimental reasons it was given to him by his grandmother. Miss Hall was appalled with them and told Wendy that her designs & ideas were repellent and totally unacceptable.

Although Adam was blind about his trapped elevator experiences and clueless about Wendy's design's he felt like a fool because the more time he spent working alongside Wendy & Wendy's love for Christmas, he too felt a magical spark that took his breath away.
Wendy too also remembered her fluttered moments alongside Adam whilst being trapped in the ele her amazing connection and a magical spark that took her breath away, the only shock was that Adam was the boyfriend off her boss, and he was a down to earth pleasant guy.
