My Christmas Drabble

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words (not counting the title).


“There is no Santa Claus” mommy said. “I told you when you were five. Such a stupid child.”

I hate mommy.

I put out milk, and oreos, my favourite, and carrots. Reindeer like carrots. This time Santa would come, he would.

“What foolishness! Go to your room! Stupid, stupid child.” 

Maybe if I was awake Santa would come this year. But mommy made me drink warm milk.

In the morning I rushed downstairs! No presents. The cookies were still there. Mommy laughed.

“I told you. I've been telling you since you were five. Fifty years, my god!”

I hate mommy.


  1. My goodness, this one is absolutely heartbreaking. What a twist. Well done ...
