Wrapping Paper Chaos
Title: Wrapping Paper Chaos
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Notes: Part of Deck The Skulls (13). Also, thanks to everyone who has reviewed, commented, favorited or otherwise kept my muse encouraged to keep writing.
Preparing a surprise Christmas party, even with Mycroft handling most of the planning was hard work. But it was done and Sherlock was sort of pleased. He wasn't looking forward to being social and dancing and he'd already decided on his limit for that sort of thing.. but it would make John happy and that's been the point of this whole season.
John, who Sherlock missed terribly even though he'd only been gone for two nights and would be home today, Sherlock sighed and looked around the wrapping paper laden disaster area that was their sitting room.
Pest was happily playing with some discarded wrapping paper and some bright red ribbons. Sherlock kept getting distracted from his wrapping in order to play with the kitten. He didn't want the kitten to be unhappy, the internet said John's kitten needed play and attention.
John opened the door and burst into silent laughter. Sherlock was sound asleep sitting up on the floor, wrapped presents and wrapping paper debris scattered around him. Pest was asleep, purring contentedly, holding a bright red and well chewed ribbon between her paws.
It was great to be home, he thought, as he carried his luggage upstairs.
The speech had been exhausting and without Sherlock and his endless supply of chaos, John had been terribly danger free and bored.
