Spike sat on the couch and eyed the ornaments Buffy and Dawn were hanging up on the Christmas tree. Every bone in his body was urging him to jump up and attack the low hanging tinsel, but Xander's head was lying on his tail and he didn't want to disturb the sleeping puppy.
Xander let out a soft whine, then snuffled, his tail and ears twitching. After a moment his legs started to move like he was running in his dream.
"No, Spike. Don't leave me please!" he cried.
Spike didn’t bother to look away from the tree as he swatted one of his paws at the puppy, waking him up. He was used to Xander having dreams that Spike would have to wake him up from.
Xander let out a growl, but it had no anger in it. "Thank you, Spike." His eyes lit up when they landed on the tree. "Yay! It's almost Christmas!" he yipped.
Spike smiled and kept his eye on the tree as Buffy and Dawn continued to hang up ornaments. Dawn had explained to the kitten and puppy at the beginning of December what Christmas was and even showed them movies about it. The whole house was now decorated in greens and reds as well as cookies in the kitchen shaped as various Christmas things.
Xander huffed when he went up to bite at an ornament, but it was pulled away at the last moment by Dawn. He could hear her giggling and he let gave a doggy grin at the happy sound. He barked and started to jump and bounce around the girls. He then went over to Spike and licked his face playfully.
"Playtime?" his eyes were hopeful and full of life.
Sighing, Spike finally forced his eyes to wander away from the tree and to the puppy. "Yes, I guess we can play. What did you have in mind?" he asked as he jumped off the couch and sat next to Xander on the floor.
Xander thought for a moment before giggling, "Let's play hide and seek. I will hide!" He ran off right after he told Spike what they were playing, he was so excited. He waited until Spike closed his eyes, and he snuck back into the living room and crawled under the tree, and kind of under some tinsel, his wide eyes peering at Spike, a small smile gracing his face.
"19... 20," Spike finally opened his eyes and immediately they landed on Xander hiding under the tree. "I can see you, whelp," he sighed and rubbed his eyes with a paw in exasperation.
Xander growled and glared at Spike, "No you can't! You’re supposed to look around, even if you know where I am." Tears filled his sad puppy dog brown eyes. "Please Spike? If you love me, you will look around."
Spike stared at the puppy like the idiot he was before grumbling and getting up. He started to walk around the first floor of the house as he "looked" for the Lab. "Oh, I wonder where Xander is! Where could he be?" he yelled loud enough for the puppy to hear.
Xander giggled delightedly and before he even realized, he fell asleep under the tree in the tinsel. His light snoring was making Buffy and Dawn struggle not to laugh.
Spike wandered back into the living room, still pretending to look for Xander. He paused when he heard the snoring, recognizing that snore anywhere as the puppy's. Walking over to the tree he found what he expected to find, an asleep chocolate Labrador puppy. Sighing heavily, he crawled under the tree and cuddled up next to Xander, falling asleep as well.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from me and WarpedMindedYaoi!!!
