This is the conclusion to From an Amazing Day to A ….
Night was coming and Alabaster and Snowball were wondering if they would be in the cage all nigbt. The evil fairy had left and not returned.
They weren’t alone though. A group of pink squiirels were standing guard around the cage.
“To think that I thought the pink squiirels were cool. I don’t anymore.”
Snowball agreed. They had lost their charm for sure.
“I would feel much better if they would stop baring their teeth at us. I have never been bitten by a squirrel and would like to keep it that way!” Snowball said, feeling frightened.
Alabaster had his head in his hands. Sometimes he would smack his head with his hand before sighing and doing it again.
Snowball watched him, “A couple more smacks and I think you will have it downpat.”
Saying nothing, Alabaster did it again.
Suddenly there was a loud roar! The elves looked up and it was the most fantastic sight ever. Dinosauris was flying above them looking down at them.
Hope filled their hearts. They would be rescued. But wait, where was he going. He was flying away.
“Wait! Help us! Don’t leave us here” The elves shouted until they saw it was no use. Dinosauris disappeared into the clouds and their hearts sank.
Tbe squiirels had all fled when they saw the dragon, but they were peeking out from behind the trees now and coming back.
Now was one time that the elves wished that Dinosauris could breathe fire. He could have destroyed the squirrels, who were back to jeering at them again.
Sitting in the cage feeling dejected, they wondered if they would ever see their friends again.
“I would give anything to be working again. I would even be glad to muck out the reindeer’s stalls. I don’t even like to work. I like to work at taking naps. But anything would be better than having our unknown fate hanging over our heads. ”
“Well, our fate may not be unknown for long, here she comes.” Alabaster pointed towards the evil fairy who was headed their way.
Their stomachs started knotting up as they waited.
“How are you guys doing? Finding your accommodations comfortable?” She laughed and gloated at them.
“I brought you something that you may like. Its a special concoction I made.”
The next thing they knew a sticky, syrupy substance was falling down on their heads. Alabaster inwardly was groaning. This was totally messing up his hair!
“I know you both are wondering why I captured you so I will get right to the point. I want the keys to Santa’s workshop I want all of his toys and all of his elves to work for me!”
“That will never happen you ugly witch!” Snowball yelled at her.
“A smart aleck I see. Never you say? Well suit yourself … I guess you wish to never get out of the cage. I sent my ransom note to the North Pole, hopefully Santa likes you guys and gives me what I want or…..” and she turned and walked away, but cackled loudly.
Her threat hung in the air like a giant rain cloud over them. Santa would never hand over his keys. Things looked dark and bleak for the poor,poor elves.
THUNK, THUNK … the squiirels were throwing nuts at their heads. They hoped with all their might that Santa would come to their rescue. Surely he wouldn’t leave 2 of his favorite elves in the hands of the evil fairy, would he?
The sun went down and the night grew chilly.
“What I wouldn’t do for some of Santa’s hot chocolate right now.” Snowball said.
“Well hurry up and you can get some!”
What was that? Was he delusional? It sounded like Candy Cane. He looked at Alabaster whose eyes were wide open. He obviously had heard it too.
“You knuckleheads, wake up and get a move on before the evil fairy comes back.”
Wow! They weren’t dreaming. Candy Cane was standing in front of them leading them back into the tunnel.
Quickly they hurried after her. “We aren’t delusional, we really did hear voices. They weren’t in our heads!”
“Well, just because this time they weren’t, doesn’t mean that you guys aren’t delusional!”
They smiled, no insult could wipe away their smile, they were being rescued.
Back in Santa’s house everyone was warming up with hot cocoa and chocolate chip cookies.
Dinosauris had flown directly to Santa telling them where Alabaster and Snowball were.
Jinx, Jangle and Tink had helped with the rescue. They couldn’t leave their friends in danger. Friends stuck together.
They had distracted the evil fairy and led her on a wild chase, far away from the cage and tunnel where Candy Cane had been.
Just as evil fairy was almost upon them they stopped and turned around.
“Do you want one of Santa’s magical toys?” Jangle taunted.
The fairy’s eyes gleamed with greed. “Yes! Give it to me!”
Jangle threw the cowbell at her. “You have to shake it 3x. Within seconds she was shaking it and they all cheered as the evil fairy disappeared into the pink and purple smoke.
Alabaster and Snowball cheered when hearing the story.
What an adventure the day had turned out to be! Now that their fright had worn off Alabaster and Snowball started competing with puns again.
Santa and the others were laughing, even Candy Cane. Though she had laughed harder at the story about the sticky syrupy substance that had fallen onto their heads. They had showered but their hair was still a mess from it. Poor guys. Someday it would eventually wash out.
