Sam smiled at Gabriel who was panting slightly and covered in wrapping paper. “Seriously Gabe, how can you make so much mess in less than an hour!” Sam chuckled at Gabriels downcast face. “Its okay, ive got one more present for you, saved the best till last” Gabriels eyes lit up like a kid in a sweetshop and Sam help but pat his head as he walked out the room.
By the time Sam came back in Gabriel thought he was going to burst from excitement. when Sam handed him a small package, elegantly wrapped in a way only Sam could, Gabriel gingerly took it from him. Very carefully he began unwrapping it, (he could be careful if he wanted too) to reveal, bit by bit, a key.
“It’s the key to our new life Gabriel” Sam explained. that was whn Gabriel realised just what Sam meant. he had bought them a house. their own place. the key was as good as the key to Sams heart. Gabriel grinned manically before launching himself at Sam.
“I love it Sammy, thanks” Gabriel smiled, a slight tear rolling down his face, one quickly hidden when he pressed his face into Sams jacket. they both lay very still and contented for a long while before Sam turned his face towards Gabriel and murmured “happy birthday Gabe” before pressing a kiss to the top of his head.
