The Best Christmas Present (Newt Scamander x Reader)
“I’ve got the best Christmas present for you this year,” You told him as you kissed his cheek.
“I wouldn’t put any bets on that,” he responded with a kiss on the forehead.
You both smiled at each other, basking in each other’s presence.
“I’ll go first then.” You pulled out a white egg from behind your back and held your hands out for him to take it.
“An egg?” The look on his face was priceless and you cracked up laughing.
“Crack it open.”
He tapped it against a table and cracked it open, similar to that of a chicken egg. Inside was a folded piece of paper and a gold ring.
“Is this a proposal?” He was even more confused now.
“Sweetheart, look a little closer.” The wait was starting to kill you.
Upon closer inspection Newt noticed that engraved on the outside were the words, ’Proud Father.’ On the inner ring were ‘Loving Mummy’ engraved.
Next he unfolded the paper, you had memorised the words written inside.
I thought about this for hours, erasing my words because they couldn’t do my feelings justice. But then I realised, no words could express the way I feel towards you. Instead I’ll tell you every day through my actions.
I wake up with a smile knowing I get to see those gorgeous eyes again.
I can sleep peacefully knowing that you’re right beside me.
With you in my life I feel complete. I don’t have much to give you, except for my unconditional love.
You already make a wonderful Mummy, and I know you’ll be just as amazing as a Dad.
So this year for Christmas, I’m giving you something we have been talking about a lot lately. From tonight onwards you are going to be a Dad.
I love you.
Merry Christmas, yours always,
He paused for a moment, digesting everything he just read. His heart beat wildly; his thoughts were filled with love for you. That not only your words were perfect but you were also.
“You’re pregnant?” Newt’s eyes met yours, both his voice and gaze filled with awe and love. You nodded.
“Which means I’m going to be a Daddy?” Shock was written on his face, but soon a smile slipped onto his lips as he gazed at you with adoration. You nodded your head lightly, a huge smile on your lips.
“I thought you wanted to be a mummy.” You teased him, smiling at him.
“I can be both.” We both laughed at the teasing banter.
“This is absolutely splendid.” He kneeled down and placed his hands on your stomach, lifting you shirt up so he could touch your skin. He peppered it with kisses.
“You hear that baby; I’m going to be your daddy. I’m going to teach you all about magical creatures and we can travel all over the world.” He spoke to your belly, even though your baby hadn’t developed yet. It still filled your heart with warmth upon hearing the loving words Newt spoke to your unborn child.
“You haven’t even entered this world yet, but I already love you indefinitely.” He gave it one final kiss before standing up. Newt picked you up by the waist, spinning you around in circles. You were both smiling wildly while you laughed at his excitement.
“Now what were you saying about your present being better?” His face lit up as he remembered his gift for me.
He reached into his coat and pulled out a white box wrapped in a black ribbon. You took it from him with a questioning gaze. Untying the bow and pulling the lid off. Inside was a book.
Not just any book but Newt’s book. Well the first transcript of it. Placing the box on the closest coffee table you held the book in your hands, running you hand along the spine of it.
Newt came up behind you and wrapped his arms around your waist, kissing your cheek.
“Turn the page,” he whispered in your ear, as his arms tightened around your waist.
The next page read;
Dedicated to my beautiful girlfriend, [Y/N], without her my life would not be filled with this much joy. Before I met her the days did not seem as bright. I didn’t realise what I was missing until I had her.
She is the woman I wish to spend the rest of my life with, just her, me and our future little ones.
I’ll be there for her even at the worst of times, no exceptions. I have found a new purpose in life and that is to ensure there is always a smile on her face. I love her more than anything else in this world.
I write this so all who read this know that she is mine and mine alone, as I am only hers.
Forever and always,
Your eyes gather with unshed tears, as you turn around to face him. Newt unwraps his arms from around you as he kneels down, retrieving a small black box from inside his coat.
Inside was a simple yet elegant ring. It had taken Newt days to find the perfect ring; he wanted only the best for his future wife.
The band was gold and resembled a branch of kinds. The branches wrapped around a misty white jewel. It wasn’t pretentious, or chunky. From the very first glance at it you knew it was perfect for you both, it suited not only you but also Newt with its natural beauty.
“My love, my Light, my Heart, my World, will you [YF/N] do me the honours of calling yourself my wife?” Hopeful eyes looked into yours, as a few tears slipped free.
“Yes! Yes I will. Newton Artemis Fido Scamander I want nothing more than to be your wife!” You jumped into his arms, kissing him passionately. His arms wrapped around you again as he pulled you closer to him.
You told him all your loving thoughts as you moved your body against his. He pulled away, resting his forehead against yours, love in his eyes. Breathing heavy he pulled away and slipped the ring onto your finger.
It was utterly beautiful. All you could think he was perfect, in every way.
What you didn’t know was that he was thinking the same about you.
AN: MERRY CHRISTMAS
