Here's my first one-shot. Doesn't really have a plot, mostly just Channy fluff. (And I know it's past Christmas, I was just really busy.)
Disclaimer: I don't own anything
Sonny was in a terrific mood for two reasons. 1) Her dad was finally coming to California to spend Christmas with herself and her mother. 2) Because it was Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year! There were some other reasons but she wasn't going to list those.
Sonny looked at the food in the cafeteria, gagging at each item. The Mackenzie Falls cast they got to have Christmas cookies and other tasty treats, while the So Random cast got nothing but mystery 'food'.
"Obsessive much?" a voice asked. She turned around to face Chad.
"What do you mean by that?" she snapped.
"Uh, you're wearing a red jumper, sleigh bell earrings and holly in your hair," said Chad, picking at the holly in her hair.
"I know. Isn't it great? I'm wearing holly in Hollywood!" Sonny laughed at her joke. Chad stared at her like she was crazy.
"I'm sorry you don't have joy in your life," she said.
"Oh, I have joy. This Christmas I'm going to be so joyful because you'll be out of my hair."
"I feel the same way. I'm gonna be so glad you're gone, that this smile will never leave my face."
"When do you not smile?"
"Whenever I have to see you."
"Oh really?" he asked.
"Yes really," she answered.
"Well, while you two bicker, I'm going to be packing for Paris," said Tawni.
"Oh yeah, that's cool," said Sonny.
"When you're rich and pretty you get to do stuff like that," said Tawni, picking an apple and walking away. "See yah."
"Bye," Sonny called after her.
"So, are you going to that Christmas party?" asked Chad.
"Yes. I can't wait. It sounds like fun," Sonny giggled. "Hmm, who did you get for the secret Santa?"
"I can't tell you."
"Oh, whatever, it's probably you and you'll get me something stupid, like a picture of you!"
"If it was you (which it is not), you already have two pictures of me. So I won't get you another one. That would be rather lame."
"Well, I got Portlyn, so I got her a bunch of lip gloss."
"Nice....whoever the lucky girl is she gets to get an awesome present from moi."
"So now I know it's a girl."
"Wait –what did I say? I never said it was a girl."
"Yes you did." Sonny paused, then quoted Chad's words, "'whoever the lucky girl is she gets to get an awesome present from moi'."
"Ok. Fine but there's plenty of girls in the studios," Chad said, stating the obvious.
"Yeah, but So Random is exchanging with the great Mackenzie Falls. And there's a thirty-three percent chances that you'll get me. And because you're the greatest actor of his generation, you probably swapped so you got me," Sonny explained.
Chad smirked. Sonny saying Mackenzie Falls is a good –no, great show. And saying he was the greatest actor of his generation, gave him a huge confidant's boost. His already big ego went up twenty percent. Ah, what a great Christmas this was going to be. He shoved past Sonny to get his food.
"Hey, I was in line!" Sonny yelled.
"I'm more important. And you just said before I'm the Greatest Actor of his Generation," said Chad. "So I get to have my stuff first."
"Whatever," she mumbled. "I thought we agreed to be friends at the talk show, not enemies."
"Yeah, I know. We agreed not to fight. But still, it's so fun to tease you...because you're so innocent."
"I'm innocent?" she said in disbelief.
"Yes. You don't know Hollywood like I do. You're so naive and innocent...it can't be helped."
Sonny sighed. Chad still had his moments where he would just be a jerk. But he was trying to be better. The arguments were now few and far between. And he wouldn't say as many cocky things. But he was so used to being a jerk and got to say whatever crossed his mind, it was hard to stop.
"Well, for the past month you have been kinda nice to me," Sonny started. "So I guess I can let it slip, one time."
"Oh, I know. I can manipulate you to do whatever I want."
"No, you can't."
"Really, Sonny, really?" he asked, staring deep into her eyes. Sonny became silent and got lost in his eyes. Chad smirked, "Told yah."
"Shut up. I was doing that...." Sonny had to think of a lie, "Because it's Christmas."
"What kind of answer is that?"
"I...don't...know. See you at the Christmas party," said Sonny and ran away.
The Christmas party was awesome. There were great Christmas songs you could dance to. And the Secret Santa game was coming up soon.
Sonny peered around the room looking for Chad. The game was about to start, but he wasn't here.
She sighed and continued to dance and hang around with her friends.
"Hey there," said a voice, coming from behind her.
"Oh, look who decided to make his guest appearance," said Sonny, looking at Chad.
"You know I'm always fantabulous late."
"Well, the Secret Santa is about to start, so put your present on the table."
"Oh, I already had someone do it for me."
"Greatest actor, greatest perks," said Chad cockily. His trade mark smile plastered on his face.
"'Greatest actor greatest perks,'" Sonny mimicked, using a high voice.
"Oh that's real mature."
"Shut up. It's time for presents."
The two teen stars walked toward the table with presents.
"Now here's a present for Sonny," said Tawni, handing Sonny a gift.
"Thanks," Sonny replied, walking over to a table. Chad followed Sonny and stared at her. She opened the present quickly. It wasn't a picture of Chad (like he said). Instead it was all five seasons to Mackenzie Falls with Chad's autograph on the front.
"Wow thanks, Chad," she said sincerely. "I only have the first four seasons....Oh!" She tried to catch herself, but it was too late.
She just admitted to Chad she liked Mackenzie Falls.
"I-I m-mean my– uh, er –best friend Lucy likes Mackenzie Falls," Sonny managed to stutter. "Yeah, she just loves it."
Chad snorted. He didn't believe her at all. She was a terrible liar to begin with and that had to be the most over used answer ever.
"Sure," he said, sarcasm dripping in his voice. "I'm sure 'Lucy' just loves it to death."
Sonny sighed. "Chad, follow me," she said and led him outside of the room. "Look," Sonny said, once they were outside the room. "I did like Mackenzie Falls. And I still sort of do. But please, please, please, don't tell my cast. They'll kill me, Chad."
Chad looked down at her and ran his fingers through his blond hair. "Alright, I won't tell your cast," he agreed.
Sonny and Chad stood in silence until Sonny's phone went off.
"Oh, I just got a text massage from my mom. I have to go," she said.
"Oh," Chad exclaimed. "I have a short cut...so you don't have to go through everybody."
Sonny bit her lip. She didn't really trust Chad. She didn't think he was going to do something bad. But he might pull a prank when they're alone and humiliate her.
"I guess we can go your way. But I have to say bye to my friends first," said Sonny.
Chad shrugged and followed her back to the party.
After she said good bye to all her friends, she left with Chad. He wrapped his arm around her shoulders and led her to the short cut. When they got in front of a door he stopped and looked up. Sonny followed his eyes and looked up. She gasped. Up on the ceiling was mistletoe.
Oh no! Sonny thought. This is a trap!
When Chad saw Sonny's reaction, he smirked.
"So are you going to kiss me?" she asked, slowly.
"Well, now that you said that the answer is no," said Chad.
"So...if I said I didn't want to kiss you, would you have?"
"Nah, I'm not that desperate that I have to use mistletoe to get a chance to kiss you."
"Don't worry. You'll get your chance...someday."
Sonny stood there awkwardly. "So is this a short cut?"
"Yes. But only to the Mackenzie Falls exclusive parking lot."
"Okay. Merry Christmas, Chad," said Sonny.
"Merry Christmas, Munroe," he replied. Darn, Chad thought as he walked to the car. I should have kissed her when I had the chance....But there's always New Year. And with that comment, he smiled.
Please review and Happy New Year!
