I don't own the Santa Clause or any of the characters in it. I only own Eira.
A/N- I was reviewing my stories the other day and I saw a review that asked for more on this story. Since my writing skills have definitely improved since the last time I wrote I will try this. This is an experiment and if more people want more I will write more.
Eira gently sang to herself while she decorated a gingerbread house. The house itself was made by the elves, she was just decorating it. The one she was decorating was a replica of the one back home; a gift from Alex. She was decorating it but half of the toppings ended up in her mouth instead of the house. No matter, it was almost finished anyways. Eira put the final finishing touches on the house then stood up, licking the frosting off her fingers.
She carried it up to Uncle Scott's room. He needed the sugar more than she did. She opened the door with her back and placed it on his desk. Buddy ran up to her and hugged her leg. She giggled and ruffled his hair. It had been a whole three years since she first came to the North Pole, since she first met Jack. A lot had changed since then. For starters, Buddy was four now. He had light blonde hair like Carol and had Uncle Scott's eyes and smile.
He was a cute kid and Eira found she, more often than she probably should have, playing with Buddy. Alex and Bekkah had gotten together which made her happy, but the downside to that is they often nudged her and Jack to go on double dates with them, which wasn't really their style. Richard had gotten the job as #2 Elf next to Curtis, his assistant that helped out with anything that was in need of assistance.
Eira had decided that although she loved art that she wanted to stay in The North Pole. Besides what other place could be better to influence and teach art than The North Pole. So she went to the school Carol taught. It was a little awkward at first considering all the elves were hundreds of years older than her and yet they were all shorter than her. But, she quickly got over it.
Eira enjoyed every day she spent with Jack. The two became inseparable. It soon turned into you never saw the two apart unless they were sleeping. Jack and Eira helped regularly in the workshop, making toys and decorating. It seemed that Christmas had become an even more special time with all the happiness that went around the workshop.
Eira picked Buddy up into her arms swinging him a bit laughing at his uncontrollable laughter. It wouldn't be too bad if her and Jack had a kid. But she wasn't ready for that kind of responsibility and she didn't think that they would even get that far for a while. Jack went with the flow letting the relationship happen naturally and letting it move at its own course. If she didn't want to do something he was fine with waiting. Eira couldn't believe how perfect he was, counter to all the things people thought of him.
Eira put Buddy down ruffling his hair one more time then left the room. She walked down the halls enjoying the smells of Christmas.
"Hey there you are Frost Girl. Where have you been?"
It was Bekkah holding a big box of tinsel. She had a mischievous glint in her eyes that made Eira's cheeks go slightly red.
"I was decorating a Gingerbread house, and I just set it on Uncle Scott's desk."
"Are you crazy? Are you trying to give the man type 2 Diabetes's?"
Eira laughing replied, "He's Santa."
"So? That doesn't mean that he's gotta eat a ton of sweets ALL the time."
Eira just laughed and shrugged her shoulders.
"So are you and Jack doing anything special tonight?"
Eira's face tightened in thought. "I think we're going sledding today."
"Why don't you go see a movie or snuggle up by the fireplace and drink hot coco together, something romantic?"
Eira shrugged. "I don't know, and I don't think a movie is romantic unless it's a romance movie, which Jack and I will probably never see unless it's a comedy, you can't talk in a theater."
Bekkah shrugged but quickly added "But you can book the theater to yourselves."
"I just don't want to. Jack and I have always been very open to each other I think if we tried to be overly romantic it would make things awkward. At least if I was the one trying to be romantic."
Bekkah snorted. "You've been dating for three years. Obviously you guys have something special. Especially since its Jack, do you know how many girlfriends he's-"
"I really don't want to know about the other girls he's been with," Eira said with slight annoyance.
"I'm just saying that he's never had a girlfriend as long as you. 8 months was the longest."
Eira nodded a little happy with this information and they walked onto the workshop floor. Like usual the whole place was filled with activity. Elves walking, building, decorating, and laughing; the place was bustling with life. Eira even after three years still was amazed how the elves could walk so closely together but still maneuver in such a way that they never touched each other or had to stop to avoid anybody.
Walking near Bekkah a pale arm grabbed Eira and pulled her away. Eira giggled feeling that familiar chill.
"Hey gorgeous. What have you been up to my little elf?"
Eira giggled. Jack had started to call her that ever since she had started help make toys. That and he never fully got over wanting to have an army of little yes men. "Hey Frosty, I was just decorating some pastries."
"Were still up for snowboarding aren't we."
Eira thought about what Bekkah had said and then answered, "Actually, Jack I was hoping that maybe you would like to do something a little different."
Jack raised an icy eyebrow, "What would that be my little icicle."
"I was hoping we could just spend time at your place tonight, maybe watch a movie or two."
Eira was blushing a bit from the embarrassment of asking and Jack's amused stare and all the pet names didn't help.
"Hmmm I like that idea snowflake. Will it fit in your schedule if I pick you up tonight at eight?"
Jack gently cupped her face and gave her a soft kiss. A pleasant chill ran through her nerves followed by a warm blanketing feeling and she eagerly leaned into the kiss. Jack pulled away, a little too soon for Eira's taste, and he gave her a promising smile and walked off his dress shoes clicking on the tile floor.
Eira took a deep breath and walked off with a happy feeling. That hadn't been as bad as she thought it would be. Eight o'clock soon came and with a little not really needed but insistent help from Bekkah she was now in an elegant evening dress. It was simple, blue with snowflake lace on the bottom and top ridges. But it fit Eira well, her personality and her figure. Bekkah pinned her hair up in a bun then did her make up.
Stepping back admiring her work Bekkah said, "You look beautiful. Jack is going to be blown away."
Eira smiled lightly then remembering something got a mischievous grin.
"Weren't you supposed to meet Alex at the town square? Bekkah was wearing a green with red trimmed dress with her shoulder length hair curled. Bekkah letting out a 'eep' ran for the door and with a 'good luck' closed the door.
Eira laughed before looking herself over in the mirror one more time. Bekkah had done a good job and Eira made a mental note to thank her later. Her eyes had a light brown eye liner with a light blue and white shadow. It was just enough to complement her features without it covering her features. Pulling on her black boots and a white cotton jacket she stepped outside.
Jack was waiting on the other side of the door when she opened it and Eira stepped back a little startled. Jack chuckled and held out his hand.
"My lady, you look stunning tonight." He brushed his lips against her knuckles and a thin layer of frost appeared.
"So do you sir." Jack was wearing his normal suit just more formal and his hair was slicked back.
Jack held out his arm with a charming smile and Eira wrapped her arms around it and laid her head on his shoulder. At his house the smell of chocolate was everywhere.
"I made some coco. I thought it would take away the cold that always seems to follow me."
"I like your cold. I've always liked your work Jack."
Jack smiled. He always was happy and filled with joy to know that Eira had always been his biggest fan. He went into the kitchen and picked out two mugs and filled them to the brim with coco. He walked over to Eira who had seated herself on the couch and handed her the mug.
"Careful it's hot."
Eira gave him a look then took a sip. As soon as it hit her tongue she moaned from the delicious flavor. Jack always made the best coco, sweet but with a slight hint of spices and peppermint that tasted fantastic. She often hammered Jack about telling her his recipe so she could make it all the time but he would always waggle a finger in her face and say 'can't do it icicle. Maybe one day. But for now you'll just have to wait for me to make it.'
Even though this annoyed Eira it was always worth waiting when she had that first sip.
Jack chuckling, practically purring, asked, "Good?"
"Mhmm," Eira said her face still in her cup.
"I'm glad you like it. So I have a few movie's here…"
Jack listed off the movies and Eira smiling chose the Rankin Bass Jack Frost. Jack popped it in and it started to play. Eira laid her head on Jack's shoulder through the movie with Jacks arm wrapped around her waist.
"And you said you never had any TV specials."
"I said nothing of the sort; I said that Santa got more than me."
Eira just mumbled something about never being satisfied and went back to watching the movie. At the end Jack sat back pulling Eira a bit closer to me. Eira had had a thought through the movie and wanted to know if it was true.
"Was she a real person?"
"Who was a real person?"
"Elisa. Did that really happen between you two?"
"No, no, that never happened it's just a story. Spring comes with Mother Nature and I've never wanted to be human for anybody. Except if it meant being with you."
Eira blushed and Jack took the opportunity to gently kiss her. It was slow at first then it slowly got a bit more intense. Soon the two had to come apart to get some air. Just because your immortal doesn't mean you don't need air. Jack looked at Eira her lips a bit swollen from the make out session. He smiled to himself and reminded his ego just how lucky he was to have her. He lay down on the couch and pulled Eira into his arms. Eira giggled and she snuggled into his chest. He gently kissed her head.
"I love you Eira."
He heard a soft reply of "I love you to."
He smiled and he closed his eyes, content to fall asleep with Eira in his arms.
A/N- As you could tell it was really fluffy. It was fluff ridden. I hope that you guys like it though.
