The Christmas War

By:Carrie Fox and Kayla Gower

It was a few months before Christmas,Santa's elves had a day off. The elves,as cold as it was,were nice and warm in their green coat and slippers.These slippers were the coolest ones around,the flurry 2.0's.

They were about to enchant a snowman when they saw something in the distance.As it grew closer, they could make out the short pudgy body,and the steady ringing of bells on the creature's shoes.But the elves were not intimidated by this creature,because they all knew him very well.They were prepared,they have been practicing all of their lives for this. They all got in a line and marched toward the other elf and another group went inside to get santa.They started screaming battle cries,but the elf just stood there.

Then to there surprise the elf yelled to them " i have come is peace!".All of the elves stopped dead in their tracks and started whispering frantically in confusion.Jack,the leader rushing around,finally got santa to come outside.santa was as surprised as the elves were with their latest visit. santa hesitated before he spoke,"hello,what do you want from me and my friends,that you should come in 2 days before christmas,and corupt everything!?" He continued,"who are you to come in and wreck everything we had going!?"santa exclaimed.

"Please! I have come to offer an alliance, between the north pole santa and south pole santa! said the elf pleadingly.

"And what will become of us if we dont accept?" said Santa, his stare as cold as the snow falling.

Then the elves voice became hard, "Then there would be war, South Santa wants this land, and will have it."

"Then war it is! Charge!" yelled Santa.
