[Boone snaps awake, instantly alert of his surroundings. He rolls over to look at Alex, who was sleeping. Careful not to wake her up he slinks away from the bed and to the place where he hid his gift to her. He pockets, sets the coffee machine, and slides back into their bed. He gently touches Alex on the arm, speaking lightly.]
Hey Al, you awake?
Merry Christmas.

*Alex stirs. She tries to open her eyes but she closes them again. She breathes deeply and mumbles.*

No, I'm not.

*She turns around, eyes still closed, and speaks towards Boone. She tries to open her eyes again and looks up at him, he looks happy and excited and she smiles back at him.*

Merry Christmas. Our first Christmas morning ever.

[He Smiles back at her.]
I knew you'd be sleepy, so I put some coffee on.
But before I go get it, I'd like to give you this.
[He pulls out a small and square black box from his pocket. He places it in front of her, eagerly waiting for her to open it.]

*Alex widens her eyes. She stares at the box, her heart unmistakably stopping for a second. She feels it racing as she sits up and grabs the box. She looks up at him, smiling in eagerness and leans in to kiss him.*

Thank you. I love you.

*She smiles and then takes the box and opens it, her hand shaking slightly.*

[Boone quietly waits for her reaction, anticipation spreading throughout his body.]

*Alex gasps. Her hand shaking slightly as she places her finger carefully over it.*

Boone, it's amazing.

*She looks up at him and a smile spreads big on her face.*

Oh Boone! How did you even manage to get this? It's beautiful, I love it!

[He smiles back, absolutely delighted that she loved it.]
I thought ahead, bought it in a fancy shop at Madagascar.
[He kisses her on the forehead.]
I'm glad you love it.
Alex: all smileslisten_to_locke on December 26th, 2009 04:31 am (UTC)
I do, I love it.

*She kisses him, her lips just only touching his. She smiles.*

I will wear it tonight! It's fabulous, thank you!

Now, let me get you that coffee.
Alex: prettylisten_to_locke on December 26th, 2009 04:40 am (UTC)
*She smiles and lets him walk out. While he's out, she sneaks out of bed and goes over to the lower part of the closet, where she hid his present in a shoe box. She brings it over to the bed and smiles up as he comes back. She grabs her mug from him with a big smile.*

Thank you!
Come back to bed, I have something I want to give you.
ifoundsomepens: Oh you~ifoundsomepens on December 26th, 2009 04:45 am (UTC)
Oh, do you?
[He jauntily slides back under the sheets and waits.]
Alex: curiouslisten_to_locke on December 26th, 2009 04:49 am (UTC)
*She smiles, puts her coffee on her bedside table and moves the shoe box between them.*

I put this together for you. It's taken me a few weeks, and I've had to ask John Locke for a few things, too. I hope you like it, but most of all, I hope you find it useful.

*She takes the shoebox lid off and takes out a carefully wrapped rectangular box, and passes it to Boone.*

Merry Christmas.

[He unwraps the gift, folding the wrapping paper back up and putting it off to the side. He opens the shoe box, brows shooting up.]
Alex: all smileslisten_to_locke on December 26th, 2009 04:53 am (UTC)
*Alex bites her lip, waiting for his reaction.*

Don't worry, I made sure it could be resealed.
ifoundsomepens: Smileifoundsomepens on December 26th, 2009 04:59 am (UTC)
[He picks it up, his eyes shining with laughter.]
This is great Alex.
[Boone turns it around in his hands.]
How did you fit all of that stuff in here?
Alex: shy smilelisten_to_locke on December 26th, 2009 05:02 am (UTC)
Hahaha, it took a few weeks for a reason!

*She smiles, tucking her hair behind her ears.*

I made sure to include some first aid stuff, you have a compass, and a whistle and some fishing basics, a razor blade, some aspirin, also a map of the island... it was my mother's map.

I'm glad you like it.
ifoundsomepens: Laugh cuterifoundsomepens on December 26th, 2009 05:06 am (UTC)
[He raises a brow, she fit a map of the island in there. This girl was amazing at packing.]
[He kisses her.]
Glad you like your gift too.
Alex: prettylisten_to_locke on December 26th, 2009 05:09 am (UTC)
*She smiles as he leans back.*

I love you, I love this Christmas. Thank you so much, you're amazing.

[He sinks into the pillows, still fiddling with his gift.]
I can say the same for you. You know?
Alex: Satisfiedlisten_to_locke on December 26th, 2009 05:38 am (UTC)
*Still smiling, she leans down against him, her head on his shoulder. She chuckles.*

I would expect no less from you, you know.

*She lets him wrap his arm around her and with her hand on his chest, she traces the patterns of his shirt with her finger slowly. She closes her eyes and begins to consider going back to sleep.*
