Summary: A short story that shows just what a sprig of mistletoe can achieve.
"Jimmy, what in Elvis' blue suede shoes are you doing?" Perry asked as he saw Jimmy hanging something to the ceiling above Clark's desk.
"Heh-heh-heh. You'll see," Jimmy replied, with a devilish grin on his face.
A minute or two later, Lois and Clark came in playfully arguing about Christmas. "How can you say that, Lois? Christmas is the most wonderful time of year. I am telling you, come on over to Smallville with me and I'll show you the magic of Christmas."
"I don't know, Clark. I don't want to intrude on your family time with your parents."
"They would love it if you came. And besides, they already consider you family," Clark insisted as he sat down in his chair with Lois sitting at the edge of his desk.
"Ahem. Hi, Lois. Hi, Clark," said Jimmy.
"Hi Jimmy. Hi, Chief," Lois and Clark said simultaneously.
"So, uh, you guys like my, uh, decorations?" Jimmy asked as he pointed above Clark.
At the same time, Lois and Clark looked up, and then at Jimmy, and said "Mistletoe?"
"Yup. You know the tradition," Jimmy replied.
Perry finally understood and couldn't help but laugh at Jimmy's scheme. Lois bit her lip while Clark was gulping. They both stood up and leaned in to give each other a warm and gentle kiss on the lips. After the kiss ended Lois saw Clark blushing and gave a giggle and kissed him once more, then said "If that's part of the magic of Christmas, I changed my mind. I'll come to Smallville just so that you can show me some more magic."
Clark just grinned and then laughed along with Jimmy and Perry.
