Title:Deck The Skull With Boughs Of Holly 4/24 Fandom: Sherlock BBC Pairing: John/Sherlock Prompt: tinsel Word Count:221B
Sherlock finished his rapidly cooling tea and mentally prepared himself for today. He had to go and talk to his brother and since he was going to be asking for a favor, he'd have to be nice. Well, somewhat nice, Mycroft would be concerned if he wasn't sarcastic.
John had gone to work after they ate breakfast and engaged in their traditional play argument about John's boring and dull job.
John had left laughing while reminding Sherlock not to burn down the kitchen again. Set the kitchen on fire once and no one will let you forget it.
Before he could leave he heard the familiar sounds of his brother's footsteps and a knock on the door.
“I could tell you wanted to see me,” Mycroft said, even as he set down some boxes from their childhood down on the living room floor, “After all you're planning a surprise for John, are you not?”
Boxes of old fashioned and fancy ornaments, tinsel and garland... John would be pleased by this although it would mean that they'd have to buy a tree.
“I'm throwing a surprise Christmas Party for John, you're invited,” Sherlock said as he looked anywhere but at his brother.
Before his brother's mask went up, Sherlock had the satisfaction of knowing that he'd shocked his brother.
