Coldstone Chronicles: Christmas Eve: A Retrospective

This is a seasonal story, not related to any game. Just a quick read for those CS cron devotes, where ever they are. 😉 Some of you might recognize this from my Christmas card this year. That said, enjoy! (Ben: this might not be appropriate to the boards, but I'm just trying to resusitate them here. 🙂 )

December 25th

Dear diary

It’s me again, Susie! I’m happy because it was Christmas today, and I got you under the tree. It wasn’t like last Christmas, though, or the Christmas before that, because I didn’t get a stocking. Mommy says it was because Santa forgot to stop by our house. That makes me sad, because I spent a lot of time being a good girl so Santa would be happy and bring me presents. Also, I woke up in the night and couldn’t get back to sleep. Mommy says the lightning woke me up, but there wasn’t any rain.

When I ask Daddy, he just cries and shakes his head.

Mommy scrubbed the living room floor extra hard, with her mop. Daddy went out in the back and buried something. I can see where there isn’t any grass anymore.

Susie again. Did you miss me? I smelled something funny in the yard today, Mommy says it’s the fertilizer. That seems wrong to me. It smells like old beef.

December 27th

Dear diary

A funny little man showed up at our door. He lost Santa Claus, evidently. He thinks Daddy has him, but Daddy wouldn’t steal Santa. He tinkled, like a fairy.

December 28th

Dear diary

Joey next door got a stocking, and it had neat toys. I wish I had a stocking. K next door (I can’t spell her name, she says its a black name) didn’t get a stocking, so I’m not the only one after all. At least there were the tree presents from Mommy and Daddy. The little man came again, he sounded madder.

Daddy doesn’t talk much anymore.

Dear diary

It’s Susie, and I’m scared. Daddy buried something else in the back, I think I heard little bells. The yard smells really bad now.

Daddy keeps his gun on the front table now. He says I shouldn’t touch it, it’s not for little girls. Mommy doesn’ttalk much either, she just cries.

December 30th

Dear diary

I crawled in the fireplace (it wasn’t on) to see what Santa felt like. I couldn’t see up it, because there was somthing that felt like Daddy’s jacket with patches up there. It smelled like metal, like when I bite my tongue too hard.

December 31st

Daddy’s gone. A lot of little men were at the door, it sounded like a bell choir. Mommy won’t tell me where he is. Mommy won’t say anything. She just cries.

January 1st

I found Mommy on the bathroom floor. There’s a wine bottle next to her. I couldn’t wake her up. I didn’t touch her. There’s a little man here, and he’s telling me to come with him. He says that there is a better place I can go to, where everyone talks. He says I can be just like Santa Claus.

Who said that this couldn't be made into a game?

Well, anyway, interesting read.

Ok. You're creeping me out, Celchu. How did the dad kill Santa? And why did he bury him in the backyard? And who else did he bury back there before the elves got him?

You should call it the Psychotic Christmas. 😛

Thank you. 😄

Hmmm...
The words HO. HO. HO. spring to mind.

Not entirely sure why...
