Santa, by Zane Castillo

He waited until his daughter was in bed before grabbing the stack of wrapped presents and dashing towards the Christmas tree. The multicolored lights flashed intermittently on the tall pine tree as he quietly placed the gifts under it. He then took the smaller presents towards the various Christmas stockings on the fireplace mantel and cautiously dropped each present into them.

As he stood back to look at his handiwork, he heard footsteps behind him to which he turned to see his daughter beaming at the gifts under the tree. He hesitated … then rapidly exclaimed, “Look what Santa brought you!”
