Joe sat and grabbed the remote, turning on the TV as Rafe snuggled up next to him. “Oh, there’s Christmas specials on. Way to go. Tell me you know what Christmas is, Rafe. Tell me that you got time off, presents and stuff.”
“Okay.” Rafe nodded to him, but didn’t meet Joe’s eyes and he knew that meant that Rafe was just agreeing with him.
“Oh, love.” He pulled Rafe closer and pressed their mouths together. He gave his lover a good long kiss before sitting back. “Christmas is wonderful. There’s special foods and lights and decorating a tree and exchanging gifts.” He didn’t usually make that big of a fuss, really. He would make a few things to eat and watch all the specials, but this year they were going to go all out. Lights for outside, a tree, all the trimmings.
“I like lights. Very much. They were my favorite part of working.”
“These are even better than circus lights, they’re all different colors and you can make them dance -- blink on and off, or pulse to the beat of music.” They were going to have to make a trip to the hardware store - it was going to take a lot of lights to decorate the cabin and he wanted to make sure Rafe's first real Christmas was as bright and cheery as possible.
“Dance…” He loved the way that word softened his lover’s face.
Nodding, Joe stood and pulled Rafe up with him, taking his sweet lover into his arms. He began to dance them around the room to the song playing on the show they were watching. “Dancing…”
Rafe was all arms and legs, no skills in the dancing arena, but it made his lover happy, made him beam. Joe kept them moving until the song on TV faded away. Then he just stood there, swaying with Rafe, rubbing their lips together.
“Happy lights and dancing,” murmured Rafe.
“That’s right. And presents. We can buy or make each other things, wrap them in pretty paper and put them under the tree.”
“I like pretty. I like you, Joe. I like you best.”
He nodded, still swaying with his tall, slender lover. “I like you best, too, Rafe. I like you best of all.”
He buried his fingers in all Rafe’s red curls and tugged him into a kiss, their mouth sliding together.
He couldn’t wait to show his lover how to celebrate the season.
It would be Rafe’s first Christmas and Joe's best ever. Merry Christmas to them.
Rafe and Joe are from Fairytale Shifters: Rapunzel
Giraffe has lived his entire life as an attraction at the zoo, moving from his home-cage to the work-cage and back. He’s not allowed to let anyone know he’s a shifter, and doesn’t mean to get caught as a man when Joe comes by his cage. Joe is nice, though, and when he asks Giraffe to come away with him, Giraffe does.
Joe’s interest in Giraffe shifts as he secrets Giraffe away to his home in the country, becoming about more than just saving Giraffe from his cage.
Could it be possible that Giraffe feels the same way Joe does, or will he want to return to the only home he’s ever known?
