A/N: So, another story, popped outta no where! O.o
This one's Christmas-y so I'm happy(:
I might be writing a back-story-ish thing or something from her fiancée's point of view or something, but that's just a might.
Anyways, as Always, Enjoy and don't forget to Review(:
I woke up to find a thin layer of snow covering my beautiful New York City.
It was Christmas eve, so it's nice I get a lovely white Christmas.
Thought one most important thing is missing.
I stood at my window for a moment, looking over on the snow covered city, then I heard the soft mew sound of my kitten Amelia as she snuck through my cracked bedroom door.
I walked over to her and picked her up.
"Morning Mia." I smile, rubbing my nose in her soft neck.
She purred and meowed again, looking at me with her stunning emerald green eyes.
I took the meow as a 'I'm hungry' so, I took her down to the kitchen and fixed her breakfast, along with mine.
I finished eating, then went back upstairs to get dressed, then I came back down and collapsed onto the couch with a sigh.
"What to do, what to do…" I said to myself quietly.
Of course, there's always something to do on Christmas Eve.
I could go to one of my friends Christmas parties, I could go visit my brother downtown, I could go see my family or I could lounge around like a bum and watch sappy Christmas movies all day with Mia.
As I was sitting there, Charm came and hopped onto my lap.
Then Max comes trotting down the stairs and clams his place beside me on the couch.
Charm and Max are Mia's parents, Masen got me Charm and Max a couple years ago, so I wouldn't be lonely when he was gone.
Sooner or later Charm had a litter of kittens and we gave away all but one, my Mia.
I petted Charm with one hand and Max with the other, while I tried deciding on what to do.
Finally, after a good long time of thought, I picked Charm up off my lap and stood up, setting her down in my place.
Then I went over to the door and grabbed my long grey coat off the hanger and put it on.
Taking my keys, I walk over to the kitchen and put more food out for Max and Charm, then I say goodbye to my cats and head out.
It's nice that I can just walk down a couple stairs and hop right into my car.
After getting in my car, I decide to head downtown to my brother's coffee shop.
I adore my brother, epically since he owns a coffee shop.
Family owning coffee shop = free coffee, whenever I want, YEEAH!
From the apartment to his shop is probably a five to ten minute drive, depending on the traffic.
Lucky for me, the traffic was very dulled out, seeing as how it was Christmas eve and all.
I got to my brothers shop within five minutes, maybe less.
I look at the closed sign in the window and laugh.
"Of course he forgot to flip it over." I say to myself as I open the door and walk in.
"Morning Josh, you forgot to flip the sign to open, again."
"Ahh! Not again!" he says, smacking his forehead.
I walk over to the counter and to the end, lifting up the door and walking back to get myself a cup of coffee.
"Good morning Josh." I say again.
"Morning Lexi." he says mocking my tone, therefore making us both laugh.
After I got my coffee, I made him a cup and we walked out and sat at a table by the window.
We usually do this early every morning, seeing as how the morning rush doesn't start till nine-thirty or ten.
"So, how's Claire and Ari?" I ask as I sip my coffee.
"Claire's good, though she hates the early morning sickness and the mood swings." he pauses, taking a drink of his coffee.
"Ari entered the school talent show, and I quote 'to get ladies.'" he laughs.
"For a five year old, he catches on fast, just like you." I laugh.
He sips hie coffee, then looks up at me.
"How's thing's with Jack?" he asks.
"He's still in the army, he promised to quit before new years though."
"He still not home?"
"No, I haven't seen him in almost three months." I say, looking down at the gorgeous ring on my hand.
"He's lucky to have you, he'd better treat you right." Josh smiles, putting his hand on top of mine.
We sit and talk for a while as we sip on our coffee's, then as nine o'clock comes around, I figure I'd better go and do something productive.
"Oh!" I say just before I leave, stepping away from the door and running back to Josh.
"Here are Claire, Ari and your presents." I smile, setting the three wrapped gifts on his counter.
He grins. "Thanks sis, Merry Christmas."
"Merry Christmas to you too, Bro." I smile, as I run back to the door and walk out into the cold.
I decide to go shopping for a couple hours to kill time.
By the time I'm shopped out it's about four-thirty.
Yes, seven hours of shopping.
Let's just say, I shop slow?
After shopping, I grab a take out box at a Chinese place.
After I ate, I headed over to my friend Miya's place to help her set up for her party tonight.
"Aw c'mon Lexi! You've gotta come to my party, it'll be much more fun than sitting at home, eating pop corn and watching sappy Christmas movies!" she says as we put the finishing touches on the tree.
"I beg to differ, there is nothing wrong with eating popcorn and watching sappy Christmas movies!" I laugh, sticking my tongue out at her.
After many more attempts of trying to make me stay, I waited till a few more people got to the party, and I snuck away while she was busy, smart, huh?
As I sit in my car, I look at the clock on the dash.
"Only eight-twenty-five?" I say to no one in particular.
So, after a minute of thought, I decide to head over to my friend Luka's, curious as to what he's doing right this moment.
I pull into a parking space in front of his apartment and get out of my car, stepping out and up onto his stairs, then locking my car with a 'beep, beep'.
I walk up the stairs and knock on his door, and as I'm waiting for him, I look up above the door and I see a mistletoe hanging.
Luka then opens the door and kisses my cheek before I have a chance to speak.
"Luka." I smile as he pulls me into the house and shuts the door behind me.
Warmth and breathtaking smells surround me as I stand there, just inside the door.
"Bella, Lexi." he grins hugging me tight.
Luka likes speaking Italian, ever since his trip to Italy to visit his grandmother, he's been like this, baking sinfully good food and goods, speaking random Italian.
Yep that's Luka for you.
He, of course invites me in and has me taste some of his scrumptious foods.
"Luka, the food was absolutely wonderfully amazing, your getting better and better every day." I said as I hugged him before I step out the door and look up again at the mistletoe.
"Hoping a deathly gorgeous, frozen girl will venture up onto your doorstep, entranced by the yummy smells coming from your door?" I laugh.
"Actually, I was just being festive, but I much like your idea better!" he laughs along with me, then with another kiss on the cheek, I'm off.
Since it was almost nine-thirty-five I decided to head home.
I fell back onto my couch, Charm, Max and Mia joining me.
I turn the TV on.
Titanic's playing, I couldn't refuse, so I got comfortable with my cats and went on watching it.
The channel Titanic was playing ended up stopping it at the half way part, saying 'catch the second half tomorrow, same time!'
I sighed and changed the channel to some random Christmas movie.
In the movie, the mom was putting the two kids to bed on Christmas eve, just as she was kissing them goodnight, the daughter asked her mom if her daddy was going to make it home in time for Christmas, the mom wasn't sure so she couldn't answer.
"We'll see, sweetheart." the mom said softly to the little girl as she walked out of the bedroom, shutting off the light and closing the door.
Then it flashed to her down in the kitchen getting a drink, when she hears a knock on the door.
So she puts down her glass and walks over and opens the door, only to see her husband standing there in his military uniform, his huge bag slung over his shoulder.
She gasped and wrapped her arms around his neck, as he wrapped his around her waist.
I muted the movie and looked up at the clock, it was eleven-eleven, so I closed my eyes and wished with all my heart that my fiancée would come home, hoping that soon he'd come and knock on the door, just like the movie.
Moments later, I ended up falling asleep.
Then I was awoken by a knock on the door.
I got up, yawned and stretched then looked at the clock, it was eleven-fifty-four.
I walked over to the door and wondered who would be knocking on the door this late on Christmas Eve.
I grasped the door handle with one hand and unlocked it with the other, then I open it slowly, only to find my gorgeous fiancée standing there, his bag slung over his shoulder and a red bow tied around his neck.
With his short golden blond hair, he looked like a golden retriever puppy.
I stood there with tears falling slowly down my face.
He then stepped forward into the apartment and shut the door behind him, and setting down his bag.
He wrapped his strong arms around my waist, leaning down and burring his face into my neck and taking in the sweet sent of my hair.
"I've missed you baby." he mumbled softly.
I wrapped my arms around him as more tears streamed down my face.
"I missed you too." I say, my voice shaky.
Then he leans up and looks into my eyes, leaning his forehead against mine.
Just as the clock strikes twelve, he leans in and kisses me passionately.
"Merry Christmas, my love." he says, kissing me once more.
