A Gift by Reyniki A Gift by Reyniki
"ARIAS!"

The doctor almost jumped when Xenox shouted at the top of his lung when he was literally a few feet away from him. "I'm right here, no need to yell," Arias rubbed his pointy ears then looked over at the taller man in front of him. He looked quite stiff, as if he was nervous or scared of something. "Um, are you okay? Did you eat too much sugar?" Arias asked. It was Christmas after all, he wouldn't be surprised if Xenox downed a handful of sugar-coated cookies this morning.

"NO," Xenox said, forgetting to lower his voice. "I-I mean, no. Well, maybe a few of the red sprinkle ones."

Arias raised his eyebrow.

"Okay, okay, more than a few, and a couple candy canes but that's not the point." Xenox said quickly. He took a small object out of his pocket and handed it to Arias before things could get any more awkward. "I-I made you something."

Arias blinked. Xenox giving him a Christmas gift? That's like a shark turning vegan for a day. Arias had a hard time believing this was a legit gift. 'This has to be a prank or something. He's probably holding one of those cheap hand buzzer jokes.' Arias thought. However, seeing how nervous Xenox was, Arias decided to give the guy a chance and took the object from his hands.

From the moment he touched it, he could tell it was expensive. 

Arias looked down at what he was holding and his mouth fell open. It was a rose locket with a silver chain. The patterns looked delicately drawn on and the warm yellow parts of the locket looked like real gold. "You made this?" Arias said in disbelief. Where in the world would Xenox find the money and patience to design this?

"Well, um, Elena did the design and Savanna's boyfriend gave me the money, well I actually begged him and he gave me the money to get rid of me, to buy the materials to actually make it. And... I had the local blacksmith teach me how to put it together-" Xenox seemed to get more and more discouraged as he mentioned how this locket was more of a team effort than something he did all by himself, "-but, I did part of it? Look, I'm not a talented person, I'm not specialised in art or crafting or anything other than being an annoyance. I really wanted to make you something this Christmas instead of buying you a card like year-"

"I love it," Arias said, still admiring the beautiful artwork in his hands. He looked up at Xenox who stopped talking and was blushing in embarrassment. "I really do."

Xenox let out a sheepish chuckle, smiling widely from ear to ear. Then Arias took a step closer. At first, Xenox expected a pat on the head or a scratch behind his ear so he lowered his head to the angel...

But then Arias kissed him.

Lovin' these two ;D
The locket design may change and develop later on since this was made in a rush but this is the basic look~
Merry slightly early Christmas! <3

A healthy Xenox would probably just be like: Nommy smile 
Anything else and it would be the blue screen of death XD
