(I have no words for this. I’m so sorry. (not really) I hope you like it!)
It was the most ferocious war that the world had ever seen. Two opponents, bonded by blood, were locked in a fierce combat, and were set to skirmish to the death. The time? 10am, Christmas morning. The place? Holmes Mansion, living room three. And, as historians would document for centuries to come, the cause of the epic battle was…
“I WANT TO PUT THE STAR ON THE TREE!”
Mycroft glared at his little brother. “You can’t put it on. You did it last year. It would not be fair if you did it this year.”
Sherlock scowled. “But I always do it!”
“All the more reason for someone else to have a turn.”
Mycroft stood on tip-toe, trying to put the ornate golden star on top of the Christmas tree. Sherlock pounced on him, knocking him to the ground and wrestling the star away – he lunged for the tree, but Mycroft snatched it back, putting the decoration up his shirt. They faced each other, fire in their eyes.
“Mycroft, gimme the star!” Sherlock shouted.
“Shan’t!” Mycroft retorted. “Get your own star!”
“Boys, boys!” Mummy Holmes sighed, putting a hand to her head. “Stop fighting, the pair of you!”
Sherlock pouted. “But Mummy-”
“I said stop.” Mummy frowned. The boys fell silent, and she smiled. “That’s better. Mycroft, take the star out from your shirt.”
Mycroft cautiously pulled the decoration out. “Sherlock, don’t you dare steal it.”
His brother’s eyes gleamed. “I’d never do such a thing.”
Mycroft glared at him, turning around to put the star on the tree. Sherlock grinned, sidling to the side of the tree and plucking a long bit of tinsel off.
“Sherlock, what are you- AHHH!”
Sherlock wrapped the tinsel around Mycroft’s throat, squeezing tight like a python strangling its victim. “DROP THE STAR!”
“SHERLOCK!” Mummy Holmes yelled.
“LEGGO!” Mycroft choked.
At that moment, Daddy Holmes walked into the room, yawning and stretching. “Merry Christmas everyone!”
“SHERLOCK, LET GO OF YOUR BROTHER!”
“DROP THE STAR!”
“GET YOUR OWN!”
Daddy smiled. “And a Happy New Year.”
