RP: Home Again, Home Again
DATE: 24 December 1999 CHARACTERS: Belle and Alexander Derrick LOCATION: Their cottage SUMMARY: Celebrating their first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs. Derrick COMPLETION: inComplete
Christmas was even better when one was married to undoubtedly the best baker in the entire world, Alexander thought as he settled into the corner of the couch with his stolen brownie. In the week that they'd been home they'd managed to decorate the entire cottage, but the living room was undoubtedly his favorite. Especially the tree.
It was nearly crowding the ceiling, but Alexander didn't care. It had been the perfect tree, and now it was covered in the perfect decorations (but not the stuffy ridiculously matched kind he'd grown up around). (And sue him, he liked Christmas decorations.) He also had a tiny, Slytherin-covered tree in his office.
Now, where had he put Belle's present? He wasn't always the greatest at buying gifts, but he'd certainly made an effort.
