Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt12Chapter twelve:
When Branch eventually reached the pod of the purple troll he knocked on the door, it was opened a few moments later by Creek, his eyes went wide with shock at the sight of the other male troll and the guru said with clear surprise. “Branch…Your colours?!”
The survivalist grins at the spiritual troll, as a joy shot through him and said to the guru. “I know it’s wonderful isn’t it?”
“Yes…When and why did this happen?” Creek asked him gently smiling widely at the troll he loved, glad to see the grey troll looking happy and gestured him inside the pod at the same time as he spoke to the survivalist.
Branch took off his warm outside clothing, he hung them up while saying to the other male troll. “My colours started to come back yesterday…As for why they started to come back…” The grey troll didn’t finish speaking he closed his eyes and kissed Creek on the lips instead, slowly putting h
Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt11Chapter eleven:
Branch worked on the next gift for Creek until it was time for bed, having had his thoughts occupied by the troll he loved made while he had worked made the small amount of happiness the grey troll had been feeling lately grow. It was on his way to bed for the night that the grey troll noticed something was happening to him, his grey colouring was fading becoming more of a blue grey instead. Awe filled Branch as he realised that being with Creek and giving him these gifts was making him happy once more and starting to bring his colours back. Branch had always thought that the return of his colours would mean forgetting his grandma and what had happened that day so long ago, but now he knew it didn’t it just meant that at all instead this just meant that a new chapter was starting in his life. The grey troll couldn’t help but think that if his grandma were here now she would have been happy to see him find a troll he could love with all of his heart and this
Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt10Chapter ten:
As the time for Creek to arrive for their date drew close Branch made sure to hide all of the evidence that he was his gift giver away as he had when they met previously. The grey troll was happy that he had finished drawing the mandala for Creek as their first gift as a wooing couple and he hoped that the other male troll would like it. Once the survivalist was happy all of the clues he was Creek’s gift giver were hidden he made his way into the kitchen, Branch brought out a tray placing it onto the side in the kitchen, he got the cups ready for their tea and placed them onto the tray. After this was done the survivalist got out a plate for the chocolate biscuits he planned to serve to Creek with the tea and also placed this onto the tray with the two cups. A few moments after this knocking came on the hatch to the bunker, this brought a smile to the face of the grey troll, Branch made his way up to the entrance to his home and opened it up to look up at Creek.
Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt9Chapter nine:
When Branch woke up the next morning he felt more at peace than he had in a very long time, the survivalist lay in bed and let himself bathe in this warm feeling. After a while the survivalist got up, he dressed, then washed, the grey troll took the time to comb his hair this morning something which was unusual for him, but Branch had to admit that he wanted to look good for Creek even though the other troll wouldn't see him hiding in the leaves as he did every morning. As the survivalist thought this he decided that he would also comb his hair again before their date tonight as he wanted to show the other male troll that he really wanted to be all that he could for him. Once Branch was happy that he was ready for the day ahead he made his way out of the bedroom, made some toast, then sat at his table and ate his breakfast.
After the grey troll had washed up from breakfast Branch made his way over to the tree decorations he had made for Creek, he gently wrapped them in so
Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt8Chapter eight:
Branch spent the rest of the evening thinking about what Creek had said to him, he could hardly believe that the spiritual troll really wanted him of all trolls to woo him. The survivalist could tell that Creek had been very serious about his request to him, this fact left him wondering exactly what he was going to do with this new information, the grey troll knew that he loved the guru and if Branch were honest he wanted to spend the rest of his life with the purple troll. Still the survivalist was so stunned and confused that he was very glad that he already had the eighth and ninth gifts ready for Creek as it gave him time to think. When Branch at last went to bed that night his mind was still firmly fixed on the purple troll and the feelings he had for him, as well as the ones which Creek clearly had for him.
The grey troll woke the next morning with the guru still plaguing his thoughts, though during the night Branch had managed to come to a few conclusions about wh
Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt7Chapter seven:
The survivalist spent his day in the bunker working on the ninth gift, he was making these gifts out of beads the grey troll slowly but surely worked purple, blue and green beads into a snow flake based on the colours of Creek, he then made another of green and purple inspired by Creek’s father Rain and then one of purple and blue for Creek’s mother Hope. He’d only just finished making these three snowflakes when he realised that he needed to be gathering himself together to go to see the guru for their tea and cupcakes, as well as the fact that he was going to be late for their meeting at three o’clock. Quickly Branch dressed for the cold winter weather, he hastily left the bunker, then made his way to the pod of the purple troll and when he arrived there the survivalist knocked on the door. Creek opened the door a few moments later, the grey troll gave him an apologetic look and then addressed the guru. “I’m so sorry that I’m l
Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt6Chapter six:
When Branch woke up the next morning his mind was very much focused on Creek and the fact that he now knew he was in love with the purple troll. The survivalist wasn’t sure what he was going to do about these feelings for the other troll as yet, after all the purple troll and himself were just starting to become friends again and Branch didn’t want to ruin this by making a confession of feelings which it was highly unlikely Creek would return at this time. After much thought on this subject the grey troll decided in the end that he wouldn’t say anything about his romantic feelings to Creek just yet, instead he would try to be a good friend to the other male troll, and if in time he felt that the guru might love him in return then he would confess at that time. With his decision on what he was going to do about his feelings now made the survivalist carefully wrapped up the coat up in deep blue paper which was decorated with silver glittering stars, he put
Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt5Chapter five:
The grey troll had spent some time finding the place which felt right for the crystal, Branch had never done something like this before, now Creek had told him he had a spiritual side the survivalist was trying to listen to it and eventually he found the crystals home in his bedroom on his bedside table. Once this was done in preparation for the visit of the one he was giving gifts to Branch hid anything which might give away he was the one giving the other male troll gifts. At three on the afternoon on the fifth day of the twelve days of midwinter gift giving Creek knocked on the hatch of the bunker, then waited for an answer, sure enough a few moments later the hatch opened up and Branch appeared before him. “Hey come on in Creek.” The grey troll said gesturing him inside.
The guru followed the other male troll into his home, Creek was surprised to find that it was much lighter down here than he had been expecting, the bunker was warm and it was also very ho
Midwinter gift giving Creek and Branch pt4Chapter four:
When morning came Branch had his fourth and fifth gifts ready for Creek, the grey troll carefully wrapped them both in red snow flake covered tissue paper, then he slipped todays gift carefully into a gold fabric gift bag, with this done Branch dressed for the cold weather and then made his way out of the bunker heading for Creek’s home. As he had been going for the last few days the survivalist placed the gift in front of purple troll’s door, then the grey troll concealed himself in the nearby leaves and waited for Creek to come out for his next gift very much looking forward to seeing the reaction of the guru to his latest present.
A short while later the spiritual troll opened the door, he instantly looked down, the guru was well aware his gift giver came to him early everyday and Creek had to admit that he was rather impressed by this fact. The guru carefully lifted up the gift bag, he gently slipped the tissue covered object inside of the bag out of the g
