Alarmed Santa

Alarmed Santa

A Story by George Love

Santa has a bad delivery


Alarmed Santa


The rooftop sloped sharply on either side, but Rudolph brought them safely for yet another high risk landing.  The other reindeer snorted impatiently as the jolly old elf slid down another chimney, oblivious to the gathering wind. 

            The wind picked up as the reindeer struggled to keep their footing on the slippery roof.  The Sleigh was unsteady as well, and finally gave in to the winds.  Rudolph anticipated the wind and got the team moving quickly and kept the heavy sleigh from crashing to the ground.  His actions left Santa stranded inside.  No sleigh, no magic.

            Without his magic, Santa was exposed!  Who knew the suit was magic?  He stood in his boxers and tried to hide, but when you are five foot nothing and weigh three hundred, that’s hard!   He remembered the pack.  Gone!  Magic there too! 

            The clock chimed!  Never had this happened!  The family was awake!  The sun was rising!  Like vampires of old, he hid his face from the sun!  Somewhere an alarm clock rang!

            “Santa!  Santa!  Awake!  You’ll be late!  The children my dear, remember to smile!”

            Waking he realized it was a nightmare.  To the sleigh!  Why did Rudoph look so worried?
