First of all, I’m not sure if I’m following the correct format as stated in the rules. So if I am doing it wrong, will someone please inform me so I can rectify my mistake.
Secondly, and most importantly, this post does contain scenes classed as inappropriate for younger viewers (I’d hate to be the one to spoil the illusion!). If you still wish to read and comment, then please do, carry on. But don’t forget to check out my fellow passengers stories, as well. You’ll find the links on yesterdays post.
I managed to con my way past the armed guard at the North Pole, scooping brief interviews with the Reindeer involved in the not-so-secret fiasco of last years horrific event, which saw the untimely death of the most famous icon in history. Santa himself. Christmas operations cancelled, children worldwide cried hysterically. Their angered parents vengeful, without ‘The Big Man‘ around, what excuse could they use for forgetting little Bert or Mo’s present.
People everywhere had failed to understand the ‘no comment‘ answers from the shameful culprits. Their sleazy, Wolverine lawyers’ adamant of their innocence. Lucky for me, I found Dasher cowering in the gents toilets in the flight observation tower. He appeared reluctant at first to comment. However, a handful of fresh, peppermint hay coaxed him from the stall.
Dasher, a once proud and lively reindeer, leaned against the wall, dishevelled, antlers broken, his breath reeking of Candy-Cane Ale.
I gave him time to steady himself, before hitting him with the important question… ‘Who caused Santa’s death?’
His bloodshot eyes blinked slowly, a solitary tear glistened against his dirty, brown face. Then he answered… ‘It wasn’t my fault. I needed the toilet, okay!’ He screamed, galloping haphazardly from the room, wailing like a banshee. I ran after the inebriated coward, who dashed to the fire exit and vanished in a puff of golden elf-dust.
So, was it Dasher, who caused ‘The Big Sleigh Catastrophe of 2011’? He acted guilty, but I couldn‘t be sure.
