This bit of fiction is part of I Saw Lightning Fall‘s (blog) Advent Ghosts 2013 shared storytelling event. 100 eerily inspired words. Here’s my entry. I hope you enjoy it. As always, comments are welcome. Feed my ego please!
We Are Arrived
We roam the night, while you rest snug, secure in your bed,
dreaming of video game systems given.
From the beginning, we have amused you with our antics,
Partied with your dolls,
Eaten your foods,
Crept through your house.
Amusing ourselves, biding our time. Earning your trust.
But the jolly fat man in the white trimmed red suit,
he will be replaced.
We are the elves on your shelves, and we do not poo candy canes.
