‘Tis the season to be jolly….

I have managed to get my story in early for once. Thanks go to Rochelle for picking up the baton of Friday Fictioneers and to Rich Voza who supplied the photo prompt for this week. You can read more Friday Fictioneers if you follow this link

I know my way around.

The door I need is at the end of the corridor.

I get a call whenever he’s in town, although he only ever wants to see me in the afternoon.  He is a nice guy and I am used to odd requests.

There is the usual glass of champagne and a beautifully wrapped gift waiting for me; the dress he has chosen is laid out across the back of the chair. I change quickly.

I drink my champagne, put his gift in my bag then walk through the doorway to ‘Santa’s Grotto’.

    • I mentioned earlier that I was out of my comfort zone writing this, It is really interesting to see how most people have interpreted the story the same way that you did. Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment.


    • Dear Doug
      Thank you. I tried a completely different approach this time – out of my comfort zone really. I was interested to see how folk would interprete the story and most thought of a “naughty Santa” when they had the option to see a girl, working for an agency, taking up her usual Christmas job working in th afternoons for “Santa” in his grotto in the toy store
      Good to hear from you as always


  1. Ah! I see now where people said two of us had gone along the same track. A gift and a dress! Hope she gets paid as well. 😦 Original take on the prompt (if I do say so myself.)


  2. A new dress or two, Chanel #5 perfume, gold jewelry, Godiva truffles…Caribbean cruises….Hey, why not? Every woman should have a “sugar daddy” Santa at least once in her life. Makes for great memories and flash short stories.
