Back at the North Pole Santa was busy preparing for the monthly gathering of the Guild of Legendaries when suddenly there was a jingle at the door. “Come in!” Santa cheerfully called. Holly the head elf urgently entered, her normally rosy cheeks flushed with concern. Santa’s eyebrows furrowed, “what’s the matter Holly?”
She walked anxiously towards the window and pointed towards the front entrance. There was a huge crowd of Santa’s penguin patrol armed with cannons of fish at the ready. He realized that his guests must be waiting outside at the gate. Santa laughed good naturedly and told Holly to send Mittens the messenger to tell his penguin patrol to stand down.
Santa had a knowing feeling that his newest troop of the penguin patrol were just eager to prove to Santa how brave they are. Mittens small, but quick, swiftly relayed Santa’s message. Santa watched the exchange from the window in his study as his troop disappointedly ushered the cannons away from the gate…that is, all but one determined little penguin. He was the fluffiest little penguin Santa had ever seen. Santa made a mental note to meet the little penguin as he greeted his guests.
PS the name Guild of Legendaries is up for discussion! 🙃😉
