A Dream Shattered – by Musk Oxen

A date thingy? Ah! Calendar

December 2012

Okay, its down to the last three stories. So let’s get on with it.

Okay, I just did that so you would pay attention. Today’s not one of those… oh so bad days. More of a slinky up and smack you on the butt days(if that makes sense. No? Never mind.). Today, I’ve toned it down to just a smidgen of smutiness (oh how I love alliterations) to ease you gently into a new week. So for your enjoyment — no please, I insist — here’s Donner!

But before you delve into the story, don’t forget, there are others stories waiting perusal by your magnificent selves.

Day 7. I’d gone against Doctors orders and taken a bath. I couldn’t greet the Reindeer I idolised smelling like crap. How I’d spent many a night tucked away in my bedroom as a young Ox, fawning over her photo calendar. December was always my favourite month. Oh, if only.

No. I couldn’t get distracted. Donner wasn’t the Reindeer I remembered her to be. ‘Twinkle. Huh!’ Just another sad tale of desperation. But I spruced up my bed-sit all the same.

The doorbell chimed out ‘Last Christmas’. She was here. I scurried around the room, lit a few candles and then opened the door.

Homemade Mince pie and Mulled Wine

Oh how I love that smell.

She stood in the doorway, smelling of mince pies and mulled wine, dressed in a deep-red fur coat and black patent thigh-high boots. Damn, she looked sexy. She picked up the large, crocodile-skin bag at her feet and sauntered into the room. It took all my strength not to pounce on her.

‘I don’t do that baby-mother shit,’ she said, pointing at my arse. ‘Not unless you’re willing to pay double?’

Stupid heifer, couldn’t she tell the difference between a bandage and a nappy! My bubble burst. ‘You killed Santa, didn’t you!’ I blurted out.

She turned and faced me. ‘So you’re the nosey reporter. Look, I’d stop asking questions if I were you, the boss isn’t happy. Anyway, why would I kill my sugar daddy? To do this!’ She gestured at me then stormed out the door.

Sugar daddy!

    I liked the opening line of this one. Made me smile straight away! (always a good sign I find!) Loved the mix up of nappy and bandage 😉

  2. Santa as Sugar Daddy? Oh, I should have known!
