Early Christmas Gift
Sherry Birkin looked at her clock on the wall. It was 6:45 Claire was going to be here soon. Her and Claire were going to the Christmas Party that the BSAA were throwing. She really didn't want to go but Claire begged her to and told her it would cheer her up. She had been down ever since she came back from China 4 months ago. She missed Jake she hasn't seen him in 4 months. She hoped he was doing ok and that he had a warm place to stay.
Sherry shook her head no she wouldn't think about him now. She walked over to her closet and grabbed the dress that her and Claire picked out shopping. She smiled as she remember they spent hours before Sherry finally found the one she liked. She decide to pick a sky blue dress that hugged her curvy figure. It showed the skin of her back and came down above her knees. She got undressed from her sweats and changed into the dress.
She walked over and sat down in front of her dresser. She looked at herself in the mirror and began to put her make up. After that she then fixed her hair she made the ends of her hair flipped out. She add a light pink lip gloss to her lips. She opened her Jewelry box and took out a necklace with a tear shaped Blue Zircon along with matching ear rings. She looked at herself in the mirror.
"I think that's good enough."
She walked over to her closet and grabbed her see through white wrap. She wrapped it around her shoulders and let it fall loosely. She looked at the clock it was 7:30 now the party started at 8. She was about to grabbed her white flats when there was a knock at her door. Sherry grabbed her shoes and walked to the door. She opened it and saw Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy standing on the other side.
"Sherry you look amazing!" Claire said with a smile as she hugged her.
"Thanks." Sherry said as she closed the door after Claire and Leon walked in.
Sherry looked at them Claire was wearing a dark floor length purple dress. Half of her hair was pulled back with two curls hanging down by her face. She was wearing a diamond necklace and ear rings. Leon was wearing black dress pants, with nice black dress shoes, a red shirt with a black tie, and a black jacket. His hair was still long he smiled at Sherry.
"You do look great Sherry." Leon said.
"Thanks I'm almost ready to go. Just let me put my shoes on the we can leave." Sherry said.
She started to put her flats on but Claire stopped her.
"What are you doing? You can't wear those." Claire said a little shocked.
"Claire I won't be able to dance in the ones you bought me to go with this dress." Sherry said.
"That's why you bring your flats with you. I have mine in the car. Here I will take those and you go get the other ones." Claire said as she stuck out her hand.
"Fine." Sherry said as she handed Claire her shoes.
Sherry heard Leon say something, but didn't pay attention to it as she walked back in to the bedroom. She walked over to her closet and grabbed the 4 inch heels Claire picked out. My feet are going to be killing me by the end of the night. Sherry thought to herself and she put the shoes on. Once she had the on she started to make her way hearing the clicking on the hard wooden floors. She was surprised she could walk in them. Normally she wasn't the high heel girl. Yea she wore boots with heels but they were thick heeled. These were skinny and she would be lucky if she didn't break her neck tonight.
Sherry walked into the kitchen and looked at Claire.
"See now doesn't that look better." Claire said.
"Yea it does but my feet are going to be killing me by the end of the night." Sherry said.
"No they won't, do what I'm doing. I'm wearing them for the 30 minutes to an hour then I'm changing into my flats. I want to dance tonight and I can't do it in these heels." Claire said.
"So we are dancing tonight?" Leon asked Claire.
"Yes you're my date. So you should dance with me." Claire said with a smile.
"Alright just don't yell at me when I step on your feet." Leon said with a laugh.
"Are we ready to go?" Sherry asked as she walked over and grabbed her wallet.
"Sherry your not going to wear a jacket it's cold out there." Leon asked.
"Yea. I am. Your just in the way." Sherry said to Leon with a smile.
Leon moved out of the way so she could grab her jacket. She took her black coat from the coat rack. She took off her wrap and put her jacket . She threw her wrap over her arms. She cut the light off and locked her apartment.
They walked out into the parking lot, Sherry was happy that Leon told her to wear a coat. It was really cold her see though wrap wouldn't have done her any good. They walked to Leon's car which was a red Lincoln. Sherry heard the click of the door unlocking as she climb in the back. Leon took the driver seat and Claire sat upfront. Claire handed Sherry her shoes to her. Sherry put them on the floor board and looked out the window.
She watched the lights of the city go by. She wondered what Jake was doing right at this minute. She wanted to know if he was safe and out of harms way. Then again he is a mercenary so he most like be in danger right now. It will be almost one year since they first met. That's why she has been thinking a lot about him. When the weather first started to get cold she remember running in the abandoned building finding him there.
She really missed him. His smart remarks, that cocky smile when he would say something smart, his rude language, she missed it all. She closed her eyes and opened them looking out the window again. They arrived where the BSAA were having the Christmas party.
The BSAA deserved this party. They had been fighting BOWS in the middle east for last 4 months. Just a week ago they came home finally. HQ told Chris since they did such a great job they were throwing them this party. Leon pulled into the parking lot of the building and parked the car. Leon, Claire, and Sherry stepped out both girls holding their flats in their hands. Sherry looked at the building.
It was a hotel/ party building. You could through you parties in the room they had down stairs. That way if any guest drink, and didn't have a safe ride home, they could stay there until morning. They started to walk up the steps. Claire put her arm around Leon's and held it.
"I can't believe I agreed to come here." Sherry said as the kept walking up the steps.
They walked through the door they saw a bunch of people walking around talking. They followed a couple that lead them to the room where the party was being held. Sherry walked in and looked around. The room was huge it was dimly lit there were table around the sides of the room. They had white and red table clothes over them. The dance floor in middle was big so you wouldn't have to worry about bumping into another couple dancing. It had a long table with food at the end of the room. Music was coming from the corner as a DJ played Christmas music.
People were laughing and eating. Sherry didn't see anyone she knew she followed Claire and Leon to the table. Leon pulled the seat out for Claire and Sherry. They took there jackets off. Sherry wrapped her wrapped around her shoulders.
"So I have something to tell you." Claire said.
"What?" Sherry asked as she looked at her.
"I'm giving you your Christmas present early." Claire said with a sly smile.
"Why would you give it to me early. Christmas is only 2 weeks away Claire. I haven't even bought you anything yet." Sherry said.
Claire just shrugged her shoulders.
"I'm going to go get a drink. You wanna come with." Claire said as she stood up.
"Yea. I'm thirsty." Sherry said as she stood up.
Her and Claire walked over to the table where the punch was. They were behind a few people. Sherry feet were already hurting her, she decided when they get back to the table she is taking the shoes off.
"So have you seen any guys in here you want to talk to?" Claire asked.
Sherry looked around really quick. Not seeing anyone that peeked her interest.
"No." Sherry said as she looked back at Claire who stood in front of her.
"Why don't you look again." Claire said the moved her up a little bit.
Sherry sighed and turned around now to look behind her. She looked at little then her breath caught in her throat. She saw a red haired guy leaning against the wall, with one foot on the wall and his hands in his pockets. His head turned looking around the room. He was about 6'3 with a lean muscular body. He was wearing a black button down shirt, with the top two buttons unbutton, with black dress pants and a nice pair of black boots.
He looked forward and Sherry saw those steel blue eyes and the scar on his cheek. Jake Muller was here right in front of her. She could see his eyes searching the room then landed on her. She saw him make a slight smile and he pushed off the wall with his foot, taking his hands out of his pockets and started walking towards her. Sherry walked towards him, she would have ran but she most likely would have tripped.
When she reached him she threw her arms around his shoulders and hugged him. She felt Jake wrap his arms around her as he hugged her back. She could not believe he was here. She pulled back a little and looked at him with a smile on her face.
"Jake, what are you doing here?" Sherry asked as she looked at him.
She noticed she didn't have to lean her head back as far to look at him. She came to his chin. She saw he was about to say something but it was Claire who answered the question behind her.
"Merry Christmas Sherry." Claire said as Sherry turned around to see Claire with a smile on her face.
