Deck The Skull With Boughs Of Holly 1/24
Title:Deck The Skull With Boughs Of Holly 1/24
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Prompt: Ringing Christmas Bells
Notes: If you're reading this on ff.net where I'm posting it within “Say Your Right Words” this is the first of the drabbles I'm doing for advent drabbles... Regular drabble will follow with the return of Bunsen the dog. :-)
Sherlock looked at the decorations that John was putting up with distaste. “What's the point of all this?” he asked as John put some ivy and ribbon around the skull.
“Christmas was never a good holiday when I was growing up or when I was in the service, but now that I've got a home and someone to share Christmas with I want to have a full holiday. The whole experience...” John said.
Sherlock cursed in his head. First he cursed John's bloody parents who didn't exactly warrant parent of the year cards, then he cursed the fact that this meant he'd have to celebrate the bleeding holiday. Which meant that he couldn't use his general lack of following any and all social cues to get out of buying John a present.
He didn't want to buy John a present. John was his best friend, his doctor, and the man that he happened to be in love with but Sherlock had no idea what to buy.
“If that's all right with you of course?” John asked, looking hesitant.
“No it's fine,” Sherlock said forcing himself to smile. John wanted Christmas? Therefore John would have the best bloody Christmas ever, bring on the bleedin' bells.
Deck the skull with boughs of Holly, Christmas was coming to 221 B.
