The Dragon Clutch

Santa had called upon the Faerie queen to user her magic to find the baby dragon’s clutch.

The baby queen

The queen had  looked into her enchanted pool and immediately saw the baby’s brothers and sisters on the side of an outcropping in Wiarton, Canada.  She showed the image to Santa.  “I assume you will take the baby queen home, Santa.  I will provide you with a potion for the clutch to protect the queen from whoever stole her from her family.”

The queen busily began pullin sage leave, mandrake root, and other herbs and plants from the air.  Soon, she had a bubbling pot the size of a penny boiling over a tiny fire.  The Faerie queen stirred the potion until Jessie thought it smelled like a skunk and then pronounced the elixir was ready.

:”You must give the potion to the baby queen when she is with her brothers and sisters.  It will bind them together.   If you give the potion to the creature before hand she will die along with her family.”

Santa grimaced.  He knew that it was important to save dragon clutches.  There were very few left in the industrialized world but he didn’t realize he would have to go to the clutch himself. He had thought he could fly the animal to its home and have a dragon scientist replace the queen in her nest.

Santa sighed.  “All right, Jessie and I will start on the trail tomorrow. Is there anything else we should keep an eye out for?”

The Faerie queen shifted and brushed her long hair back behind her temple.  “Only, that if your dog drinks the potion she will get very sick.”  The queen stared at Jessie who was sniffing the vial with the dragon’s potion inside  At the Faerie’s words she backed away into the corner and hid her head.

“Thank-you,” said Santa. “We will do the best we can to save the clutch.  We’ll leave late tonight so that we can be at the clutch at daybreak” Continue reading The Dragon Clutch

August 1st – Christmas in July Celebration (almost)

Santa fiddled with the bow tie Molly had attached to his neck.  It was lime green with polka dots.  He thought it looked very cheerful against his drab black tuxedo.  He was waiting on the couch with Jessie for Molly.  She had already changed her dress three times and Santa was trying not to dose off.

The Christmas in July ball, which because the holiday Monday in July had fallen on August 1st, was something Molly looked forward to every year.  She loved to get dressed up and to talk to the Faeries.  She spent hours shopping and preparing her outfit for the celebration.  She had spent all morning at the hairdressers getting her hair dyed and fashionably cut.

July 31st – North Pole’s Christmas in July Sidewalk Extravaganza

Jessie sat on a couch with Santa.  She was hot, bored and itchy.  Early in the morning Molly had woken Jessie and put her ugly Christmas sweater on.  Then she had dragged Santa and Jessie to the town square for the Christmas in July Sidewalk Extravaganza.

Molly,Santa and Jessie had shopped in almost every store in town.  They picked up stocking stuffers for Molly’s family and a few small trinkets for Molly’s elf friends. But, Jessie thought that the real purpose of the sale was for the town residence to gossip and socialize.  Jessie had heard three times this morning that the Post Office Pete had fallen and broken his nose.    She’d also heard four times that another leak had been found in the manufacturing facilities walls.

Jessie yawned and stretched.   Her eyelids drooped as she rose from her bed and trailed behind Santa to the kitchen.  When Santa opened the door Jessie’s eyes opened wide.  Sitting on the stove was the fairy queen Felicia.  Pots and pans fell to the floor from a rack hung over the island.  There was a clatter of falling pots mixed with the cuckoo clock striking once.
