~Christmas in Oslo~
*Husband!Norway X Wife!Reader X Child!Iceland*
~Drabble #2 from ‘All I want for Christmas’ series~
The (h/c)'s female breath came in visible puffs as she made her way through the hectic masses of people moving to a side to another caught in the holiday's spirit.
The (f/c) purse hanged on (Name)'s shoulder,different coloured shopping bags in one hand,as she hoped she would be able to get home soon,away from the several groups talking,doubled over by the noisy engines of the cars which passed by,traffic jams as the main road was busy over the limit.
It was rather easy as a pedestrian to make your way in that holiday atmosphere the capital city of Norway was enveloped in - because if you were a driver,roads were blocked and the traffic was coordinated by several police officers,who kept everything in order.
At night,things would calm down,the illuminating decorations hanged on the electrical poles sending their lights on the powdered paved streets,playing a symphony of everlasting greens,scarlett reds,ocean blues and golden yellows at which the passers smiled - it might have sounded childish,but it was rather plesant and surprisingly enough,Chrsitmas always brought that childish side out of people,thing which was amusing for the younger ones.
Reaching the said house,(Name) opened the door with a soft movement,almost inaudible,putting the bags down as she heard the youngest Nordic descending excitedly the stairs - the female couldn't explain how Emil managed to know when she was to come home,as she paid extra attention not to disturb the silence - but as if that was his sixth sense,he always knew - not that (Name) minded.
The silver haired boy stopped dead in tracks at the last step,his innocent purple orbs widening as a smile tucked at his lips - and in the next instant he jumped in the female's arms.
"I see that you're glad to see me,Emil!" (Name) said with a giggle,maternally enveloping her arms around the boy.
"Uncle Matthias is horrible!Don't you ever leave me alone with him,please!" the apparently silent boy spoke up,tightening in his small fist the female's creamy white coat.
"I won't baby,I promise!" the girl said,placing a ginger kiss onto his head,at which the smaller boy responded by kissing her cold,rosy cheeks.
"Has your big brother came home,Ice?" (Name) asked,seeking with (e/c) orbs for any sign of her husband being there.
"Not yet!But don't worry,(Name), bror won't miss being with you and me on Christmas!" Emil assured her,lifting up his tiny arms for a better embrace.
"Thank you!What if I make you some hot chocolate?Does this sound good to you?" the female asked,placing the Icelander on the sofa,gathering different shaped pillows around his tiny form,to keep him safe.
The purple eyed boy nodded,grabbing his puffin plushie,which also was his favourite.
"Good!Then wait here for me and I'll bring it to you!" she bent,placing a kiss onto his chubby cheek before making her leave.
Patiently waiting for the chocolate to cool down a little,the female started preparing the dough for the ginger cookies,which soon enough was put into the oven at a medium temperature,placing on the table a large plate,the frosting which she made that morning and Emil's favourite sprinkles which he liked to add himself.
(Name) was just about to return to the living room,to pick little Emil,but an arm snaked around her waist,the hand of the owner resting on the female's swollen belly.
The (h/c) haired girl greeted with a soft,loving expression the navy blue eyed male,who gave her a small peck on the lips.
"Welcome home,honey!" (Name) broke the silence,returning the kiss.
The oven's clock rang,anouncing the fact that the cookies were ready.Lukas took a kitchen glove,carefully taking out the hot tray,placing it somewhere where little Emil - who sat on a chair and sipped on his hot chocolate - couldn't reach.
Not that the small nation was reckless,just that precaution wasn't bad.
"Sorry for being late,(Name)!" the Norwegian finally spoke up,loosening his tie with his index finger,a sigh escaping his lips.
"I haven't even got the chance to buy presents!" he awkwardly scratched his neck,his head bowed in guilt.
"It's ok,really!Don't overwork yourself with small things.I've already done that!" (Name) said,giggling,placing a ginger kiss onto her husband's pale cheek.
The ends of the Norwegian's lips twitched into a smile,a sincere and heart warmingly one.(Name)'s heart skipped a beat when he did so,causing the girl to blush and to place dreamily one small palm onto her burning cheek.
"Are you ok?Does it hurt?" Lukas asked,a tint of worry in his voice.
"Uh...Oh,no,I'm fine!It's just that...I'm happy you are home!" (Name) responded,reassuring the blonde male by giving her best smile - which always put the said one at ease.
"The cookies!" Emil interrupted the lovely glances,capturing both adults attention.
"Can we decorate them now?" he continued,at which (Name) giggled and Lukas chuckled.
Putting the different shaped cookies on the porcelain Christmas themed plate - presents,stars,Christmas trees,Santas,reindeers,snowflakes and snowmen -,the smaller nation caught the sprinkle tube in one hand,waiting for (Name) to envelope the cookies into either chocolate or vanilla,or some strawberry flavoured toppings as well as caramel - which she did and Emil closely assisted her.
"Have you already asked Santa for your present this year?" the female asked,while she worked on some cookies.
"Mhm!" the male responded,focused on his task.
"And what might that be,if I'm allowed to know?" Lukas watched them both,a content smile onto his lips.
"Initially I've requested a female puffin,because Mr.Puffin feels alone when I'm not with him.But I thought well and I asked Santa for your and bror's baby to be healthy!Uncle Matthias said that this would make you both happy!" the Icelander continued,raising his arms in the air to show the importance of what he had said.
Tears gathered in the female's eyes and in the next instant both males were at her side,asking what was wrong.Wiping away the tears,she brought the younger one into an embrace,cradling him soothingly.
"Thank you,Emil!That was the best Christmas present ever!" (Name) said,caressing the Icelander's locks with her soft palm.
"I hope you won't love me less when the baby is born!" Emil pouted,causing the female to giggle and his older brother to ruffle his hair.
"Of course not,silly!You are my first baby!" she merrily answered,loosening the embrace as Lukas caught the boy in his arms.
He protested at first being taken away from the female's warmth,but he didn't despise his brother's hug either.
"Don't complain,brother dear!It's enough that my kjære has to carry the baby." the Norwegian symphatized with his wife,causing her to laugh.
"To bed now!Little angels have to sleep if they want Santa to bring them presents!" (Name) played along,at which Emil gasped and urged his brother to bring him to his room.
Watching the peaceful face of the Icelander boy who was now tucked under the warm covers,the Aurora's light playing onto his platinum hair,the female reminisced every single moment she had lived with her husband and his younger brother.
A silly smile played onto her features,as a long stiffled yawn escaped her lips announcing that it was time to sleep.
Sweet dreams on a silent night!~
