A Gift for Readers: A Case of the Flue

blogpost RoundRobinBlogTour

 

In honor of Christmas, I’m sharing the following flash fiction piece with y’all.

 

 

 

A Case of the Flue

 

“Santa has a fever. Mrs. Claus put him to bed.”  Rudolph pawed the snowy ground. “Who will drive the sleigh?”

“No one,” Blixen said. “We’ll send everything by Federal Express.”

“Belief in Santa is at an all-time low. If we send everything by mail, no one will believe.” Rudolph tossed his antlers, almost skewering Blixen.

“And Santa will feel useless and become depressed.” Blixen led the way into the barn.

LineDrawTrees2“Ready to get hitched?” one of the elves asked. Without waiting for an answer, he began harnessing the reindeer.

Blixen  said, “Rudolph is in the lead. He could grab the gifts by the ribbons and drop them down the chimneys.”

“But what if the children spot the Santa-less sleigh? Then no one will ever believe again.”

“We should go. It’s our best chance to save Christmas.” Blixen stamped his hoof and turned to the elf. “Freddie, go tell Mrs. Claus to tell Santa not to worry, we’re on top of the delivery crisis.”

“Better hope everyone’s cleaned their chimney,” Blixen muttered as they rose into the air.

The rest of the reindeer snickered.

 

And so, boys and girls, don’t feel too bad if you got a lump or two of coal this year.

 

Have a very merry holiday, and be sure to check out the posts of my fellow bloggers

Blog tour day 2: Lisa’s world of books

blog tour day 1:

Today I’m guest blogging at Books in the Hall, where my main character, Keth, shares his diary entry. Here’s the start:


Today was my first day at the school on the base, and I wish I were back with Ardaval and the Aleyni kids. Shaffa is nice, and even Darus is up-front about disliking Terrans. The kids on the base, all except maybe one, pretend to b friendly but secretly would happy to see me wander off and die. Okay, maybe not quite that bad, but they’re not nice. Dad won’t give in, though. He wants me to go to school with Terrans.
