A few minutes later Noel comes downstairs wearing a silk red robe.
Kris notices, his eye brow raising.
“Well hello,” he says smirking.
“So I didn’t have time to get you an actual gift, you know what with getting into a car accident and loses my memory and all.”
“Right,” Kris says nodding, a smirk on his lips.
“But I made you a card,” she says handing him it.
Kris turns the card over and it reads-
“Merry Christmas! Unwrap me.”
Noel stands there as she holds her hands out, an expression of expectation on her face.
“Well…whataya say?” She says laughing.
Kris laughs walking over to her, he unties her robe showing off her lacey red lingerie.
“I know we’re not in a hotel, and it’s not exactly like our usual tradition, but…”
“It’s perfect,” he says pulling her into a kiss and then lifting her up over his shoulder as he rushes up the stairs. Noel lets out a squeal.
Kris and Noel collapse onto their bed, exhausted, bright smiles on their faces.
“Best Christmas gift, ever.” Kris says looking over at Noel.
She laughs as she climbs back on top of him, “Let’s do it again.” Smirking, he pulls her into a kiss.
Later that night by the fire, Noel sits on the floor, near the crackling amber flames, dressed in one of Kris’ green and red plaid pajama tops. Kris wearing just the matching bottoms.
“So…I’m sorry I have to ask…did it feel different?” Noel asks slightly nervous of his response.
“It felt exactly the same,” he says smiling up at her, as he leans in kissing her cheek.
“I have to admit as excited as I was to be with you- and believe me I was very excited,” she says laughing. “I was also nervous. I was just worried that I wouldn’t know what you liked, I didn’t even really know what I liked.”
Kris smirks, “Oh, I know what you like.”
“Yes you do,” she says smiling as she kisses him, cupping his face.
He pulls away to look at her.
“What?” she asks.
Kris smirks, pulling her rings from his pajama pocket.
Noel smiles happily, “You found them!”
“No, I stole them.”
Noel looks at him confused.
“Why would you…”
Kris gets up on one knee.
Noel realizes and covers her mouth, her eyes beginning to water.
“I know that I haven’t been the easiest husband to handle throughout all of this. I wasn’t my best self right now and I feel like I made one hell of a poor impression. But it’s only because I lost my mind when I thought I might lose you. I spoke to the officer in charge of your accident, and I was so relieved to find out that the accident was ruled an actual accident. But that still just goes to show that anything can happen at any time. I just got so scared. And in the mist of all of that I’ve been so afraid that you would not want to even be near me and that we’d lose all we have. When I actually ended up pulling away out of fear of hurting you. And I know by doing that, although it wasn’t intentional, I know I made you feel bad and I’m so sorry. The truth is I just love you more than anything. I know you might not remember how this all happened the first time, so I figured it couldn’t hurt to do it a second time for the woman I love.” He says smiling. “Will you marry me…again,” he asks laughing.
Noel smiles brightly. “Absolutely,” she says as Kris slides her rings on her finger. She places a kiss on his lips.
“Now let’s go celebrate,” she says grabbing his hand and rushing off to their bedroom as he laughs.
Noel and Kris are laying under their red comfy covers, Kris kissing her as she sighs grasping at the sheets.
Noel suddenly has a million flashes of different moments of her life. She freezes as Kris notices, he stops and looks at her.
“Noel…baby…are you ok?”
Noel smiles, and cups his face, kissing him.
“So I guess we’re already working on babies, like we planned, huh? We’re not even married a full month!” She says.
Kris looks at her.
“I remember.” She whispers.
“Did you have another memory?”
“No, not just one, I remember everything,” she says smiling.
“Just like that?” He says confused.
“Well your power of seduction is just out of this world.” She says smiling.
“You really remember everything?”
Noel nods happily, “I don’t know it all just came rushing back at me.”
“What’s my middle name?”
“Kringle. Your parents had a sense of humor.”
“Baby… welcome back!” He says smiling and laughing as he kisses her.
Noel kisses him back, peck after peck after peck.
“I love you so much.”
“Mmm I love you too,” he says his voice husky.
“Looks like I got my husband back just in time for Christmas.”
“He never went anywhere.” Kris says kissing her.
A few months later- Valentine’s Day
Noel and Kris sit at a restaurant enjoying their dinner.
“So I have something for you.”
“Well I have something for you too, but I thought were were exchanging gifts at the house.”
“I can’t wait,” she says excitedly handing him the gift bag.
“Ok,” he says laughing, as he shuffles through the tissue paper. He pulls out a small white baby onesie that reads, “I love my daddy.”
Kris’ bright blue eyes shoot up locking with Noel’s sparkling brown eyes.
Noel nods a bright smile on her face.
“We’re gonna have a baby!” She says happily. All eyes turning to them.
“Oh my god,” he says smiling brightly, getting up he rushes over to her, pulling her into a kiss. As onlookers smile and clap for them.
One Year Later- Christmas
Noel and Kris walk into their living room, Noel holding a beautiful, pink, rosey cheeked bundle in her arms.
“Merry First Christmas sweetheart,” Kris says kissing his daughter’s cheek. “Daddy and mommy love you so much.”
“Babe let’s hang up the stockings,” Noel says pointing to a storage bin near the fireplace.
“Yes, absolutely, come on baby girl, let’s hang up your stocking,” Kris says walking over toward the fireplace.
“Hold on, hold on, let me take a video for you!” Holly yells rushing in the room.
“There’s Aunt Holly!” Noel says smiling.
Holly holds up her phone as she records- a sparkling ring lays on her left head. Kris hangs up first his stocking, then Noel’s and then the third one-displaying the name- Joy.
“Yayyy!” Holly says smiling. “Hi pretty girl, Merry 1st Christmas! Beautiful.” she says putting her phone down and giving her niece a kiss on the forehead.
The doorbell rings and Holly rushes over, “I’ll get it,” she says happily.
Holly opens the door to find Jack.
“Hey you,” she says smiling.
“Merry Christmas baby,” he smirks, kissing her.
“Merry Christmas, come in, come in.” She says happily waving him in.
Just as Holly is about to close the door, a voice is heard.
“Hey wait for us!”
Holly stops and re-opens the door to find Rebecca and Griffin rushing up.
“Hey, Merry Christmas,” Holly says hugging them.
Noel and Kris sit around their kitchen table covered in food.
“I would just like to propose a toast,” Kris says holding up his glass, as everyone holds up their glasses. “Cheers to a beautiful holiday with an amazing group of people. Noel and I are happy to call you all family. Cheers to our greatest gift ever, our baby girl Joy. Cheers to Holly and Jack on their engagement, (Holly smiles at Jack, who leans in and kisses her cheek) and cheers to Rebecca and Griffin on their upcoming little bundle. Joy can’t wait to have a friend to play with. We love you guys so much, Merry Christmas!”
“And Cheers to my husband for finally opening up his own auto body shop, Joy and I are so proud of you baby,” Noel says kissing him.
Everyone cheers exchanging I love you’s and Holiday greetings. as the fire place crackles, Christmas music playing in the background and family love all around.
Have a Very Merry Christmas!
