If you missed Part 2 of “The Secret Mission”, here is the link. The Secret Mission (Part 2) , and now for the conclusion. Enjoy!
Frank and George had been at the North Pole for 3 days and they were finally beginning to thaw out and get used to the freezing temperatures. They had hit it off with Jinx an Jangle and Snowball. They were alike in so many ways it was crazy, almost like they were meeting clones of themselves, besides the fact that they looked very different.
This morning they were treated to another delightful meal from Chef Salvo and their stomach were nice and full. They were all ready to embark on their little journey. Though with a full stomach, Snowball really wanted to take a nap.
They were at last headed out on their secret mission. It would involve a fairly long sleigh ride to the secret spot. Santa Clause had given them a map to follow. He said they would know when they got to the spot, for there would be a sign.
As they were walking to the sleigh, Jinx and Jangle were arguing over who should drive it. Frank and George remembered witnessing them driving the sleigh into the snowbank and were thinking that perhaps they would be safer walking. Only problem was that they really didn’t want to walk a long way in the cold. They were intent on listening to Jinx and Jangle that they didn’t notice Snowball.
Snowball hurried past them and disappeared.
“So how about I flip a coin to decide who drives?” asked Jinx.
“Okay, that sounds fair, I call heads.” said Jangle.
Jinx flipped it, but missed catching it and it landed in the snow. He bent down to pick it up. After he brushed it off he said, ” Its tails! I win!”
Jangle sighed, but then he heard, ” No, you don’t, I do, hop in and lets go!”
Jinx, Jangle, Frank and George turned their heads and to their surprise they saw Snowball sitting in the driver’s seat.
“C’mon slowpokes get in!”
They all laughed, and got in. Jinx barely had his other leg in before Snowball zoomed off. He hoped they would safely make it to where they needed to go!
George had volunteered to read the map to Snowball, but Frank said no. “Remember the last time you tried reading the map, you ended up getting us lost. We ended up in a small town and took part in the carnival that night.”
George nodded his head, ” Oh yeah, the carnival, how could we forget that.”
“Carnivals are fun!” Jangle said, “You guys were lucky! We have a North Pole Olympics event here every year which is a lot of fun too!”
“Hopefully next year someone will remember to Hard boil the eggs!” said Jinx, looking at Jangle, causing Jangle to turn a little red.
“The carnival was fun, but we ended up being at the Dunk Tank Booth!” George told them. Jinx, Jangle and Snowball had a good laugh at that.
They continued chatting away, until George called out, “Hey, I think we just passed the sign!”
“What sign?”, they all asked.
“The one we just passed!” said George. “I think it was where we were supposed to stop. I thought you were reading the map, Frank?”
Frank sheepishly admitted that he had been distracted by chatting.
“Hold on everyone!’ Snowball shouted, and he made a huge donut in the snow and headed back from the direction they had just come from.
“There it is!” said Jinx.
Snowball skidded to a stop and besides Jinx’s hat flying off his head into the snow, everyone else managed to stay in the sleigh.
“That must be the sign that Santa was talking about. It says, “You are Here!”
They all got out, stretched and took a look around.
“I guess that we now can open up the envelope that Santa gave us, to explain what we are supposed to be doing out here.”
“Build a snow fort and make 400 snowballs!”
“400 snowballs! This is our top secret mission!??” everyone exclaimed!
They all looked at each other in bewilderment and Jinx spoke up. “Something smells fishy to me, like maybe a conspiracy going on. 400 snowballs is A LOT!”
“Wow, you are a genius!” said Snowball, ” I wonder if there is something Magical about that number?”
“Hmmm….” and it was silent, while they all were thinking.
“Can’t think of anything, but I sure am feeling hungry for some more of Chef Salvo’s magic chocolate cake!” said Snowball.
“Well we better get busy, for the letter also states that Santa will be here at 4:00pm and we need to be done by then.” said Jangle.
They all shook their heads, still confused, but got busy building and rolling.
At 3:45 they were all rolling the last 5 snowballs. They had been chatting away, but now all that was heard was some sighing and some “…mmm…” groans! They stacked up the last 5 balls and then all sank to the ground feeling very sleepy.
Their eyes instantly opened when they heard a lot of commotion around them and felt snowballs pelting them.
Everyone was gathered around having a huge snowball battle and they were all right in the center of it!
Then they heard Santa’s hearty “HO-HO” as he said, “Secret Mission declared a success!” and the pelting of snowballs began once again.
Frank looked at George, and said, “Do you get the feeling that the big boss is laughing right now? I am thinking this was a Special Payback Mission!”
“…mmm..” Frank couldn’t answer, as another snowball had just hit him.
