The North Pole was starting to get busy again. There were lots of toys to make and toys to repair. Tink had finally got all the money to balance and he was glad to see that they had enough money left over to make more flibbertigibbets! He was pretty confident that this would be the best toy of the year!
Tink happily put away his calculator and put the money back in the safe. He was looking forward to the evening. He was going to take a ride on Dinosauris for the first time, since he had come to the North Pole. Jinx, Jangle, Alabaster and Snowball were going to go with him as well. He couldn’t believe it! He was actually going to ride on the back of a flying dragon! He had met Dinosauris before and he was the nicest dragon he had ever met, of course he also was the only dragon he had ever met!
They all had a great supper that evening. Chef Salvo had surprised everyone with delightful whoopie pies! They were bulging with cream and oh so yummy!
“So, are you ready to go flying?” asked Jinx, with a wink.
“Oh yes! I have been excited all day!”, Tink replied.
The group headed over to where Dinosauris was waiting for them. Dinosauris was smiling, he always enjoyed taking elves for a ride. He was so glad to be surrounded by friends, he had been so lonely before. He was so glad that the elves brought him to the North Pole.
“Where would you like to go? Anywhere specific, or should we just fly around?” Dinosauris asked Tink.
“Let’s just fly!” said Tink, filled with anticipation!
They all climbed up on Dinosauris back.
“Are you all ready?” Dinosauris asked, “Everyone on?”
“Yes! Oops! Wait for Jinx! Jangle shouted. Poor Jinx had climbed up and then fell off the other side. He tried again and made it!
They all shouted “GO!” sounding a little like ducks, when they all go QUACK!
Up, Up and away they flew! Tink was speechless. He was totally enjoying it.
Around they went in the sky, soaring past the marshmallow clouds. They all were having a great time, chatting and laughing. At one time Dinosauris had made a sharp turn and poor Alabaster smacked his head on the back of Tink, making him smack his head on Jinx, and they just all went down the line like dominoes.
They had been flying for quite awhile and were beginning to wonder how long of a ride Dinosauris was giving them.
They continued to fly a little more and Jangle was just getting ready to ask Dinosauris where they were when he started descending.
In a short time he landed at a place where they had never been before.
“What on earth … where are we ? I thought we weren’t landing anywhere that we were just flying around?” said Jinx
“Surprise!” said Dinosauris.
They all climbed off his back. Poor Alabaster fell as he got off, cracking the 2 eggs that he had with him.
“Why did you bring eggs?” asked Snowball, while the others were laughing at the mess all over Alabaster’s hands.
“They were supposed to be hardboiled eggs, in case I wanted a snack. Candy Cane had offered them to me.
“OOPS!” the others said, as Alabaster just shook his head and muttered. “I knew I shouldn’t have listened to Candy Cane, she is sly!”
They all started looking around at where they were at and noticed the house at the top of the big hill.
“Why are we here?” asked Snowball.
“Yes!” said Jinx. “Why?” Jangle, Tink and Alabaster nodded in agreement.
Dinosauris smiled. “You will find a note under the mat in front of the house, which will explain it all. Have fun and I will see you later!”
“La-Later! What do you mean later?” they shouted.
“Its all in the note!” Dinosauris replied and just like that he took off soaring into the air.
The others looked at each other with befuddled expressions.
“Now what?”” asked Snowball, as they all looked towards the house at the top of the very big hill.
