"A Christmas Criminal" - Part 20
The apparition of Tom's dead father vanishes as quickly as it appeared.
Tom wonders if it really happened,
whether any of this evening's bizarre events are real.
Real or not, his parent's disdainful rebuke hurts.
It feels as if he's still watching him now from the shadows.
Suddenly Tom feels very small and very foolish
for getting himself into this scrape.
These regrets are abruptly cut short....
