Cuddly kissesIt was a chilly December evening in the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario and Princess Peach were at Peach's castle. The two were sipping on hot chocolate, and snuggling in front of the fireplace. Everything was quiet. "Mmm!" Mario said, as he sipped the cocoa. "Peach, this hot chocolate is delicious!" Peach smiled. "Thank you!" She glanced out the window. The lush green grass had been replaced with a shimmering marshmallow white blanket of snow. Mushroom children were making snowmen. Yoshi kids were sledding down hills. Others were making snow angels. Pure bliss, at last. "It's very quiet." Peach finally said, as she broke the peaceful silence. Mario nodded. "Yeah. Normally, your toad workers would be roaming around, but they're going skiing for the day, right?" Peach nodded. "I'm treasuring this moment." She said quietly but calmly. Mario grinned, then nodded. "So am I." Mario looked at Peach, then smiled. "I've never noticed it until now, but your eyes are absolutely stunning!" Peach blushed.
