Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 04. Christmas Cookies.

A/N: Because this really isn’t clear, these drabbles span two Christmases. At the time the senshi and shitennou were introduced, all four boys lived together. At the second Christmastime, the housing arrangements were in smaller groups – Nico and Zory (plus Ami, eventually), and Ken and Jed.

***


To Nico’s greater surprise, Lita showed up the next day with a plate of Christmas cookies in hand.

"I brought cookies," she said with a smile, gesturing with the foil covered plate.

Whatever Nico had planned to say in response was cut off by Jed elbowing him out of the doorway and taking the plate of cookies from Lita’s hands. "Sweet, thanks," he said, rummaging under the foil to extract a snowman cookie.

Lita covered her mouth with her hand, trying to hide her amusement at the dirty looks Nico was shooting Jed. "Save a few for Zory and Ken," she said. "I feel bad I didn’t really get to meet them yesterday."

Nico went from shooting Jed a dirty look to giving Lita a look of disbelief. "Don’t be," he and Jed said in almost perfect unison.

"Oh, cookies. Thanks, Mako-chan." Mamoru joined the three of them in the doorway, reaching over Jed’s shoulder to grab himself one. "Did you make any of those ones with the coconut and the cherries?"

Nico took the foil off the plate at Lita’s nod. "Which ones have cherries?" he asked, stealing two off the plate once she gave an indication. Mamoru stole one as well, leaving Jed to shrug and take the last one.

"Yup. I still don’t like coconut," Jed said, making a face as he ate the rest of the cookie.

Lita laughed. "Mamoru just said they had coconut in them. Why did you take one, then?"

Jed grinned. "Cause Zory loves coconut."

Lita laughed again at that. "Now I feel terrible."

"These are really good," Nico said. Unlike Jed, he had waited until he was done eating to speak.

"I told you," Mamoru said with a grin. It struck Lita how different he was around these shitennou. He seemed happier - proud, even. It was such a change from the still slightly hesitant way he acted around the senshi. Now she understood Usagi even more. She wasn’t desperate to have them accept the shitennou in some misguided effort to revive some millennium-old romance; she was doing this for Mamoru. These boys were his friends. It made Lita even more determined to accept these boys for who they were, and not who they had been. She understood how important friends were.

"Thank you," she said to Nico, giving him a genuine smile. That smile turned to an even bigger grin when she realized that Mamoru and Jed were bickering over the last cookie on the plate. "I guess I’ll have to get used to cooking for boys - I thought I had brought plenty," she said with a laugh.

"You did," Nico said, smiling back. "Jed’s just being a douche."

She looked over at Jed and Mamoru, who appeared to be half-wrestling over the last cookie. She laughed again. "I guess Ken and Zory really aren’t getting any cookies."

"Guess not."

"I took you out of that rock. Don’t make me put you back in it."

"I’d like to see you try, asshole."

Lita shot Nico a look of disbelief as Jed tackled Mamoru to the floor, cookie completely forgotten at this point. "Welcome to the madhouse," Nico said dryly. Lita giggled.
