If you missed Thursday’s post, here is a link to Part 1. Alabaster’s Surprise
Everyone was in good spirits! Santa had promised a special surprise that afternoon and they couldn’t wait to see what it was. There had been some rumors about what it might be, but no one knew for sure. Well no one, except for Alabaster, Jinx and Snowball. They had even managed to keep the surprise from Jangle.
Jinx and Snowball apologized profusely to the Easter Bunny when he finally stirred in the snow. It had been some tense moments for all of them as they had wondered if he would be okay. Snowball was sure to point out to the Easter Bunny that it hadn’t been him operating the sleigh. Jinx rolled his eyes at him and Alabaster just shook his head as Snowball said that he really hoped he would still get some of his delicious peanut butter eggs! They all helped gather up the eggs that had been scattered in the snow and loaded up his basket. They were able to slip him into Santa’s house without anyone noticing. Santa was very glad to see the Easter Bunny, but he did wonder why he was limping.
They were all sitting in Santa’s house sipping some hot cocoa. Snowball told the Easter Bunny to just sit back and relax that he would get his Hot Cocoa for him. He grabbed a stool for the Easter Bunny to prop his leg up on.
“Here is your Hot Cocoa with some whip cream on top.” Snowball said, as he handed the mug to the Easter Bunny.
“Thank you kind…Ooo!” The Easter Bunny yelled, for Snowball had accidentally kicked the stool with his leg making it move and causing the Easter Bunny’s leg to hit the floor with a thud!
With a red face Snowball quickly put the stool back in its place and gently lifted up the Easter Bunny’s leg again to lay on the stool.
Once Snowball had sat back down, Jinx quietly said to him, “I wouldn’t count on getting any peanut butter eggs, if I was you.”
Alabaster had been close enough to hear him and he chuckled, for he knew he would get the eggs that he wanted. After all he was the one that had helped Santa get the Easter Bunny to the North Pole. He had suggested to Santa that they surprise everyone with a visit from the Easter Bunny, but Santa wasn’t sure they could get him there. Alabaster did his research and Santa was very impressed with the flight route that Alabaster had mapped out for the Easter Bunny. Everything had been going so smoothly, until the final stretch when they met up with Jinx and Snowball’s wild sleigh!
“Jinx, are you all ready?” Santa asked.
“What?” Now it was Jinx’s turn to turn a little red. He had missed what Santa said while talking to Snowball.
“Do you have your game ready for the other elves?”
“Yes!” Jinx replied, with a smile. “Its all prepared, the elves just have to play a guessing game, and if they guess correctly they win an extra special egg.”
“You didn’t make the questions too hard, did you?”asked Santa.
“Who, me?” replied Jinx with a gleam in his eyes as he rubbed his hands together and smiled.
Santa laughed. “Well then I think we are all set! Lets go and get this party started!”
The elves cheered in surprise delight when the Easter bunny appeared.
Jangle was wondering if he had a fever and was delusional when he saw the Easter Bunny. He was too stunned to say much when the Easter Bunny handed him an egg , but when he bit into the coconut cream egg, he knew he wasn’t dreaming!
Everyone had a good time, and were so thankful for the yummy goodies that they had received.
Alabaster was delighted with his special black coffee eggs. Jinx got black jelly beans and Snowball was very relieved to receive his peanut butter eggs.
When the time came for the Easter Bunny to leave, Alabaster was starting to feel a little sick from all the black coffee eggs he had eaten. Jinx volunteered to take the Easter Bunny back to the airport but the Easter Bunny suddenly became very pale when he heard that. Jangle thought of the perfect idea, why not have Dinosauris fly him back. Santa thought that sounded like a great idea and Dinosauris was more than willing to help out the Easter Bunny, for he was a very nice dragon.
All the elves gathered around to see him off, as he hopped up onto Dinosauris back and soared up into the clear, blue sky.
Everyone agreed that the Easter surprise from Santa and Alabaster was a great one! Jinx and Snowball had tried to keep the sleigh ride incident quiet, but word got out about it. They all just shook their heads, glad that the Easter Bunny wasn’t seriously hurt. Plus they all agreed that when Alabaster, Snowball, Jinx and Jangle were involved with anything, one just never knew what may happen!
