"You'll never figure it out."
"Figure what out?" Jack asked pulling his hands away from the tall,wrapped box next to the tree.
"Butter wouldn't melt." Daniel replied and went to the kitchen of Jack's D.C. townhouse.
"I know something that would." Jack called back.
Daniel chuckled and put a snack together grabbing a beer for Jack before returning to the livingroom.
"If you're a good boy maybe Santa will grant your wish." Daniel smirked and dropped onto the couch.
Jack accepted the beer and settled beside him.
"I've been very good Santa." Jack leered at him.
"Uh-huh." Daniel rolled his eyes.
They ate their snack and turned in to await Santa.
Turns out,Jack was a VERY good boy afterall.
Daniel woke the next morning hearing noises.
Checking the clock he groaned then got up and pulled his sweats on,donned his glasses and followed the noises.
"Merry Christmas baby!" Jack grinned,kissed him and placed a mug in his hand.
Daniel sipped his coffee and observed his lover with a shake of the head.
Like a kid on Christmas morning.
Oh,wait...it is Christmas morning.
Finishing the coffee,Daniel headed down the hall.
"Hey! Presents!" Jack called.
"Shower." Daniel replied.
Jack pouted a moment then grinned and followed.
After a not so quick shower they sat to open gifts.
Jack tore into the large box,grinning until he reached the third box within.
"Daniel." He growled.
Daniel merely smiled.
Jack finally reached the last box and opened it.
"Archaeology for Dummies?" Jack asked.
Daniel could hear the hurt in his voice.
"Open it babe."
Jack did so and his mouth fell open.
"Her final concert before retiring." Daniel said stroking Jack's cheek.
"Thanks Danny." Jack replied and kissed him.
"Merry Christmas." Daniel smiled.
The other gifts were opened and enthused over but Jack's favorite was still the opera tickets.
"Dinner is included." Daniel said seeing Jack look at them again.
"Dinner,opera and you. I couldn't ask for more." Jack smiled and kissed him.
"This has been a great Christmas Daniel,not because of the gifts but because you're here with me."
"Let's go to bed." Daniel answered,stood and held out his hand.
Jack accepted it and let Daniel pull him up and down the hall.
Thanks Santa,Jack grinned and closed the door.
