Title: Don't Mess with the Princess!
It was a fine sunny afternoon the birds were chirping and the flowers blooming while the Genie Princess and the Genie King were cruising around in their Magical Flying Carpet picking up new wishers. All was well in the world because of the wishes that the Genies had granted, when out of the blue the Genie Princess spotted trouble on the horizon! Santa was out test piloting his brand new sleigh, The SCS7000 ECO, before the gift giving season began and had run into some trouble. This new sleigh was not reindeer powered but eco-snow powered...well at least that's what the salesman told Santa we later found out! Of couse this so called eco-snow powered craft worked fine in the confines of the North Pole where all things were cold. However, once Santa took the SCS7000 ECO into warmer climates the snow started to melt and the craft would lose power. You might think this strange but in the North Pole such things happen all the time!
Our brave and quirky heroine knew exactly what to do - she ran over to the Genie King and told him about what she saw and whispered in his ear. He laughed an almighty guffaw and nodded and off she went to the utility chest. Quickly rummaging through she at last found what she was looking for all rolled up and neat. It was the prototype Magical Flying Rug...no not the masive thing they were riding on but a small sleek one person ride....in fact it was so small that you could only stand and use it like a surfboard! Gliding through the cold air she swiftly gained speed, knowing that every second counted in her quest to save Santa but our brave and quirky heroine had no idea how to stop the sleigh!
Seeking help for this dilemma, our heroine landed the SurfRug and hid it from prying eyes and headed down the road to Santa's right hand man...err elf, The Blog Elf. The road passed thre creatures - each more interesting than the next, The first was the was the Merfish...with the legs of a man and the head of a fish. He had a glass bowl over his head with some tubes and bellows to help him breathe on land! The second was a Centaur but also in reverse...he had the legs of a man and the head of a horse! Talk about a horse face! The third was a car that could talk...it kept babbling something about it's name being KNIGHT 2000 and that it was banished to the woods after his show, Knightrider, got cancelled! Our brave and quirky heroine ran the rest of the way, and when she got there she got another surprise!
Santa! I thought you were up there in trouble with your new sleigh! Our hero exclaimed!
Ho Ho Ho, that was not me you spied, but the blog elf. He must have taken the SCS7000 ECO for a ride and also borrowed my spare suit to keep him warm. I warned him not to use it but you know the Blog Elf, he's such a mischevious fella, but obviously he couldn't resist and is now in trouble! But I've saved him using my remote control device and that's why I'm here cause he's due home any minute! Santa answered.
I was on the Magical Flying Carpet, when out of the blue I spotted you, or who I thought was you, in trouble and was so worried that I knew I had to save you or Christmas might be lost forever, our brave and quirky heroine said, knees shaking.
Could you spare me the walk through that strange path and give me a ride back to my Surf Rug?
And so it passed that Santa gave our brave and quirky heroine a ride back to her SurfRug, but not before she gave the Blog Elf a good dressing down for his antics that caused her so much anxiety. Santa was a little more lenient and said that if the naughty Blog Elf had not been up to his tricks who knows what would have happened if Santa himself was using the new sleigh at Christmas with a heavy load of toys. In fact Santa said that he will just stick to his trusty reindeer from now on and no more new sleigh as he sent the genie Princess back to the SurfRug AND then she hopped on the SurfRug and hightailed it back to the Genie King and the Magical Flying Carpet riders to tell them her tale and that all was well!
You might think it strange but in the amazing Land of Faraway, such things happen all the time!
