1) Lunare Valhart: Thanks for the long review for 'Koe'. It really cheered me up!!
2) SilveryKitsune: I'm glad you look up to me!! Keep up the MaRe!!
3) Weeping Angel: That was a beautiful TyTa you wrote. Update it soon.
ME: A short sweet one-shot for the Christmas Spirit.
CS: Since everyone was doing one, she decided to do one too.
Kai: This better be good. Last time, you had me break Tyson's heart and cry!!!
ME: You know, I should do that more often.
Kai hated this time of the year. Everyone was so cheerful and giving and…
It just made him sick.
I mean, can't these people behave normally? It's freezing cold, you can't walk a mile on the slush covered roads and the turkey is always overcooked.
Kai went on grumbling as he cleared the pathway to his house. All the servants had taken their Christmas leave, so he had to do the cleaning all by himself.
He wiped the sweat of his forehead as he finished shovelling the path.
And suddenly he felt himself on the ground, a ball of snow covering his face.
"Geez Kai, you have to learn how to duck," said a cheeky voice, bright and cheerful.
Kai growled as he got up and wiped the snow off his face, "Kinomiya!" he barked, "What THE HELL did you do that for?"
Tyson smiled and plopped himself at Kai's doorstep, "Well, you were looking kinda angry, so I thought of a medicine to cool you off."
Kai groaned. Now Tyson's never going to give him a moment's peace.
"Why are you here anyway?" He asked, curious, "Why aren't you spending the day with Max or Kenny?"
Tyson shrugged, blowing his blue-black bangs off his stormy grey blue eyes, "Max's spending the day with Ray. And if I spent the day with Kenny, I'm quite sure I'll lose my eyesight from staring at the computer."
Kai smirked, "What about your grandfather?"
"He threw me out. Said that I might break the decorations for the tree. Looks like you're stuck with me. Oh, by the way, Merry Christmas."
Tyson smiled, "I take it you don't like Christmas?"
"What's there to like?"
"Aw, come on Kai!!! Don't act like this on Christmas. Cheer up a bit. I promise it won't hurt."
Tyson pouted. He wasn't getting through his thickheaded captain. Suddenly he grinned evilly.
"Catch." With that parting word, Tyson launched a snowball at his captain's stupefied face and ran as fast as he could.
Kai roared and quickly scooped up some snow and ran after the blue-haired teen.
They were at it for some time. Every once in a while, Tyson got the upper hand but Kai always came back with a vengeance. Even Kai was caught up in the euphoria, enjoying the way Tyson would squeal when a snowball came his way, or the way he laughed when Kai missed him (Which, he rarely did. He was born with natural aim)
On top of it all, Kai really enjoyed himself.
And that's a first.
Tyson ran, trying the dodge another snowball, with Kai following him, hot on his heels.
Tyson giggled. He knew his idea of a snowball fight would lighten Kai up.
Too bad Christmas comes once a year.
Tyson turned around to see…nothing?
Hey, where did Kai go?
Kai lunged from behind Tyson the minute his back was turned. His arms wrapped around Tyson's waist, causing the both of them to topple over and roll down.
They tumbled for a while and stopped when they hit the bottom of a tree.
Kai was on top of Tyson and all he could think was how the snow had made an aura around Tyson.
He then blinked, realizing where he was. Tyson was blushing like there was no tomorrow. Kai slowly got up and offered Tyson a hand.
He was still shaken, though.
When did he have feelings for Tyson anyway?
Was it when Tyson brought him back?
Tyson noticed that Kai was struggling with something, but he knew better than to ask what. He looked up and chuckled.
"What is it?"
"We're standing under a mistletoe tree."
Kai looked up. It was an old gnarled tree with small green leaves hung together by a cherry.
"You know what the tradition for mistletoe is, ri—mght!"
Kai cut him short as he kissed the blunette. And for the first time in his life, everything felt right. HE broke the kiss gently and looked into Tyson's misty depths.
Tyson grinned, "Merry Christmas Kai." He said softly.
"Bah, humbug," Kai, said as he leaned in for another kiss.
ME: A nice kawaii fic…
CS: Get the towels.
ME: What for?
CS: Tyson and Kai caught a cold.
ME: This is why we don't get snow in India…
CS: Anyways, depending on how many reviews we get, we might continue this, featuring Max and Ray.
ME: Reviewers receive—
CS: Snowball guns. Dump snow at this end, and it shoots out snowballs.
ME: Perfect for toturing little brothers.
