“Marie, no. I allow quite a few frivolous items into my lab, but you are not bringing a pine tree into it.”
“It’s Christmas and we need a Christmas tree, Franken,” she argued.
“I fail to see how we need a Christmas tree.”
“Because it is Christmas! We have to have something to put the presents under!”
“What presents, Marie?” Stein asked suddenly suspicious.
“All of the ones we’ll be getting for everyone! I already have Spirit and Nygus’ bought. I know what we’re getting Azusa-“
“You mean what you’ve decide to buy them and put my name on as well?”
“Well, we are a weapon/meister team, Franken. It only makes sense. But that’s why we need a Christmas tree!” her face was animated as she flung her arms out to her sides before gesturing at a corner of the room. “I moved the couches around, and the tree will go right there.”
