It feels like I’ve said this before, but…here’s
another very late Christmas Gift for Alyx’s yearly Christmas Exchange. Hope it makes you smile.
Also, special thanks and kudos to Mishi for, as always, beta-reading my work and making sure I don’t slaughter your language (too much).
“That’s enough cookies, you two. They’re Santa’s cookies. And besides, with all that sugar, you’ll never be able to sleep.”
Ryan and Syd looked at each other and burst into laughter. Both were halfway through their fifth or sixth Christmas cookie, a bowl with the rest of them sitting on the couch between the two. Brigitte Watcher stared down at them from the doorframe, arms crossed over her chest and with a raised brow.
“Honestly, love, I hope you have had a fair share of cookies yourself, because I’m not planning to let you sleep anytime soon. Not before I’ve had some fun with you,” Sydney shot back at her girlfriend, wriggling her brows with such a naughty twinkle in her light blue eyes that her friend Ryan grimaced and hit her with a pillow.
“EW! Get a room!”
“This is our house, just for your info!”
“Enough, Syd, you’re making Ryan uncomfortable.” Brigitte scolded, stepping closer to get the bowl of cookies and pull it out of the reach of the two brats.
Sydney rolled her eyes but smiled at Ryan when Brigitte disappeared back into the kitchen door.
“Don’t worry, the guest-room is far enough from the master bedroom that you won’t risk hearing anything you don’t want to.”
“Gee, thanks. That’s quite a relief. Now I just need to get this whole conversation out of my head.”
