A Christmas to Remember
by Agent Spooky
It was their first Christmas in their new house. The woman entered holding a five-year-old boy's hand and a man came behind them caring a huge Christmas tree. The man put the tree in its place and the woman closed the door.
"Scully, next time we buy a tree let's make sure it's smaller then our living room."
"Don't exaggerate, Mulder. Besides, it was your son who chose it."
"But it's a beautiful tree, daddy," the little boy said looking sad.
Mulder crouched in front of him so he could be more or less his height and said: "I know it is, big guy. Daddy's just kidding. Besides it has to this big to put all your presents under it, don't you think?"
The big smile on Will's face was his answer.
That night after dinner, they decorated the tree and put all presents under it. Will was seated on his mother's lap with his father by their side, staring wide-eyed at the many boxes under the tree.
"It's still missing one present, daddy."
"The one I asked for Santa. I can't tell you and mommy. It has to be a surprise."
"Well then, I guess we will find out tomorrow. Come on, time for bed big guy."
Very early the next day, Mulder and Scully woke up with a little boy jumping up and down in their bed, shouting "it's Christmas, wake up! It's Christmas!"
Knowing it was no use trying to get back to sleep they got up and went after Will who had raced ahead and was already ripping the paper of the boxes.
"Hey! Don't you wait for us?" Scully said tickling him.
"You're too slow!" the little boy said laughing.
Scully got a rectangular box from under the tree and gave it to Mulder.
"Merry Christmas," she said kissing him softly.
"Merry Christmas," he said kissing her again. "What's this?"
"Why don't you open and find out?"
Mulder opened the box and inside it was a little pink dress with pink little shoes.
"Thank you, Scully. But pink is not really my color."
She rolled her eyes and said: "What I'm trying to say is..."
The look on Mulder's face was one of shock, delight and love. He didn't know what to say so he hugged her as tight as he could and kissed her for several seconds.
"I have one gift for you too," Mulder said and took from his pocket a little velvet box and inside it was ring.
"Scully, will you marry me?"
"Yes," and after putting the ring on her finger he kissed her again.
Their son who was watching this with great interest started to laugh.
"What's so funny, huh?" Mulder said, tickling him.
"Remember I said I asked Santa for one more present?" at his parents nod, he continued, "I asked for a little sister."
"Well," Mulder said hugging them both, "this certainly is going to be a Christmas to remember."
Merry Christmas to all of you and a Happy New Year!
