“Ed! Can’t we at least talk about this first?” Roy pleaded the younger man as he was faced with a golden braid swinging full force at him.
“No we can’t!” Ed growled, “I don’t see why we have to celebrate some stupid holiday anyways!”
“Damn it, Ed! Can’t you be reasonable for once?”
“Christmas implies that I believe in what people call God, when you know as well as I do, that there is not a single scientific explanation for such a creature.”
“Christmas is a time to spend with your family and friends…something to show you love people!” Roy hissed in exasperation as his loved started heading down the front hall towards the front door.
“And you can’t do that any other day of the year?” Ed replied in like.
“That’s not what I meant, Ed!” Roy grabbed the boy he loved and wrapped his arms around him tightly, “I love you, and I’d show the world if I didn’t think it would end up hurting you.” He placed a few soft feather kisses on the top of golden hair. “Please…just accept my gift. I don’t expect you to give me anything back. And I don’t expect you to be happy that you’re doing it. I just want to give something to you.”
“That’s not fair…” Ed muttered, “You’re cheating.”
Roy smiled slightly and kissed the top of his head again, “Please, Ed?” He held the small, brightly wrapped gift under Ed’s nose again.
“Damn you, Mustang.” Ed sighed and finally took the gift from his lover. “Do I have to open it now?”
“Please?” Roy used his biggest puppy dog eyes as Ed turned to face him.
“Okay, okay…just stop making that face.” Ed sighed again and slowly started to unwrap the gift. Acting almost as if the thing would jump up and bite him in the face. His face went from apprehension to happiness as the present was finally revealed.
Inside the small box were two things. The first was a small ring. Nothing exceptional. Just a small golden band with an inscription on it saying “Steel and Sparks”. The second was a note saying “Marry me.”
“So…” Roy said, a small nervous smile on his face.
“Yea…yea…I accept.” He grinned widely as Roy swooped up his loved and kissed him passionately.
