Disclaimer: Don't own Chuck, if I did, it wouldn't end like it did.

Sarah woke up cuddled to her husband Chuck. She smiled thinking about last night's activities. She loved when Chuck took charge in the bedroom. Usually it would be her that initiated something, but last night Chuck had surprised her with what she came to call "an early Christmas present". After several months of dedication, she had finally gotten her memory back with help from Chuck.
She didn't think she could be happier than right now. She turned around in Chuck's arm and lightly kissed him on the lips. When he didn't respond, she started kissing him on his chin, neck, before moving to his ear sucking on his earlobe.
She whispered sweetly, "wake up Chuck".
Chuck finally started coming back from his dream, blinking and rubbing his eyes. He turned his head and looked straight into the most beautiful eyes he's ever seen.
"Good morning honey", he said then proceeded to kiss her on her lips.
"Morning sweetie", she replied putting one arm in his curls which she loved doing. He had let his curls run free again and she loved it.
Chuck tried breaking the kiss but Sarah held his head in place and kissed him harder. He secretly loved it when she was a little needy. He was of course perfectly fine with it.
Eventually the need for air broke the kiss and Sarah quickly slid out of the bed.
"Where are you going?" He asked.
"I'm making us breakfast. You just lie still."
After breakfast, Chuck went into his office to work on his Christmas-present for his loving wife. Actually, there were several gifts. He had bought her a charm for her bracelet with a golden heart on it. Sarah always wore the bracelet which he was happy about. Whenever his eye caught the dangling charm bracelet on her slender wrist he would instantly fill up with happiness. It looked perfect on her. Especially every now and then when she would lightly fiddle with each charm, remembering the stories he told her about each one.
But the big gift he had bought was a house. Not the one they considered buying before she lost her memory. Sarah had made it specifically clear that she didn't want to live in a house that holds those bad memories and to be honest, he didn't really blame her. It was a rather rough time. Therefore Chuck decided he would find a new home, one that would be even better. While still keeping in mind her choice of a 'cozy, homey and simple' house.
He honestly couldn't understand how he managed to keep it from Sarah for that long. Especially since the last time he had done the same, she had seduced it out of him in matter of seconds. He carefully wrapped the charm for her bracelet in golden Christmas paper and put it in his desk drawer.
Sarah was tired of waiting for her husband's return, so she decided to go find him. Once at his office she leaned against the door frame and smiled looking at Chuck staring straight ahead at apparently nothing. She walked up behind him and put her arms around his waist, hugging him close.
"I missed you" she murmured against his neck.
Chuck laughed out loud briefly then turned in his chair. "Honey, I've been gone for like.. 15 minutes!"
She pouted. So. "And that's 15 minutes of Chuck-time I'm never getting back." She stated as-a-matter-of-fact.
Chuck smiled and started talking about work and shopping and Sarah decided that the best way to stop it was kissing him. Chuck forgot what he was talking about altogether.
"Sweetie, your rambling" Sarah said looking into his eyes. She always thought it was cute when he did that.
"Let's go buy some groceries" she continued and smiled at him. She then took his hand and walked out of his office, pulling him along gently.
"Okay honey, whatever you say" he said following her out the door and to her car.
The local store
Sarah had her arm intertwined with Chuck's walking around the store. She would occasionally drag him along when she spotted something they needed. As a little girl she would never do stuff like this. It was always the annual Salvation Army-con job with her dad. She didn't regret it though. It was her way to feel close to her dad and Chuck would of course understand something like that. Her sweet and caring Chuck. She looked at his face as he looked around the store for threats. The instincts from their spy-days were still with them. She leaned close and kissed him on his cheek.
"What was that for?" He said turning his head to look at her again.
"Do I need a reason to kiss my husband?"
"No…no of course not! I was just surprised that's all." He smiled his signature grin that made her knees weak, which she of course returned with her own.
Chuck didn't know how long it took before he got 'back' to the real world as Sarah snapped her fingers in front of him.
"Umm.. what?" He asked, feeling a little confused.
"What were you thinking about?" She asked seductively
"How beautiful and gorgeous you are." He said looking into her eyes.
Once again her knees felt weak. She loved when he complimented here because he was always so sincere and honest.
She leaned up and hugged him close and then whispered with emotion. "I love you Chuck. I know I say that every day but I love you even more than words can describe. Thank you."
He looked puzzled and asked. "What for?"
"For never giving up on me. You are my rock Chuck. I don't know what I would do if it wasn't for you." She had a small tear in her eye now.
"Oh baby, don't think like that." He said before he carefully brushed her tear away.
"You are my everything Sarah. I need you as much as you need me. We need each other."
"I can't believe I'm standing in a store and crying." She wiped beneath her eyes "I'm so embarrassed." She looked down on her shoes and blushed a little.
"Hey" he said and lifted her chin so he could look her in the eyes again. "Showing your emotions is something that you never have to be embarrassed about."
"I know Chuck, but I was used to locking all my feelings up inside. You are the one that had the key to open it again. You continue to amaze me every day with your kindness and openness." She looked around and noticed some stares from other customers. Turning back to him, she took his hand in hers. "Let's go and pay so we can get home."
"But we aren't finished yet. There is still stuff that we need." He protested.
"All I need Chuck is the man standing in front of me. Besides we have so much already, we don't need anything more."
"Okay honey, let's pay and go home." He said and slid his arm around her waist.
AN2: I decided to split it into two chapters. Don't worry, I will get it finished by Christmas.
