Flash Fiction #10 – Belittling Santa (Flash! Friday)

This week’s Flash! Friday is Christmas themed.  This is the second one of their third year, but it’s the first one I’ve participated in.  For this one, I actually used Google Maps to check that I was using real information for location.  However, the events are completely fictional.  Of course, it’s fictional.  This couldn’t really happen, could it?

So, here’s my entry:

Belittling Santa

“We bring you this breaking news tonight from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Is it an epidemic of home break-ins and robberies, or is it a prank? Brent Sabourin has the story. Brent?”

“Thank you, Debbie. Yes, here in the Mayfair area near the intersection of Thirty-Sixth Street West and Avenue C North, seven houses have been broken into. The items stolen? Christmas presents. Someone entered these homes sometime during the night and whisked away nearly ten thousand dollars’ worth of gifts. However, we may have a lead on this heinous crime. Barbara Jensen says she saw something very unusual.”

“I came out of the kitchen at about two this morning and saw someone with a bag standing in my fireplace. I couldn’t believe it! He looked just like Santa, but was only about four inches tall!”

He watched the television flicker as he listened to the news story. The little white-bearded man smiled. “That’s for belittling me, my dear brother.”
