Chapter 4: Skippy The Elf
Jet had already arrived and changed into his Santa suit. The gadgets were on hand... er um flipper. He was about to go out to take his place among Santa's chair when he was stopped by a short yellow penguin in a elf costume.
"Your the replacement Santa I see." The elf said.
"Why else would I be dressed like this?" Jet asked.
"Right, well here's the way it works," The elf started. "I am one of Santa's elves, really. He sends his elves all over the world to listen to what kids want so that he can deliver what they want to them. I know there are not usually penguins in the north but this is just a disguise. As for my name, it's Skippy. Don't laugh it's a family name."
"So your really a elf from the North Pole?" Jet Pack Guy asked.
"Yep!" Skippy answered proudly.
Jet Pack Guy was amused but already on his way out to face the torture of little penguins sitting on his lap to get pictures taken and tell him what they want.
Chapter 5: Chick Troubles
It has been one hour already. Skippy stood by taking notes on everything the little penguin chicks asked for while Jet had to go through kids demanding all these toys, pulling at his fake beard, attempting to steal the candy canes (the ones for eating thankfully), and the occasional lap wetter which was not fun.
A hot pink penguin with a beautiful golden wig sat upon Jet listing off a long list of items. "And I want a doll house, a puffle plushie, a autographed background from Cadence, a Penguin Band poster, and a tiara for my puffle."
"So that's it?" Santa Jet asked.
The little girl thought for a moment then responded. "You know, your right! I also want a couple new wigs and a pink scarf."
After another half hour the little girl was done and it was time for the next child.
"Come here little boy." Jet said picking up a cute little fluffy aqua colored baby chick. "What would you like for Christmas."
The little chick shook his rattle happily and giggled.
"I take it you can't talk yet." Jet said patting the little guy's head.
Then a light green colored penguin stepped forward. She was the chick's mother. "Actually he knows one word."
Santa Jet tickled the baby. "And what would that be?" He asked the baby.
"WHACK WHACK!" The baby screamed then whacked Jet Pack Guy in the head with his rattle.
Jet rubbed his head. "Oh, I see."
Chapter 6: Your Never Too Old For Santa
The next kid a green penguin in a propeller hat and sunglasses ran up and jumped onto Santa Jet causing him great pain.
The red penguin straightened himself then looked at the penguin on his lap in shock. "Rookie?"
Rookie smiled and became really happy. "Santa!!!! You remember me from last year!!!!"
"Last year?" Jet asked silently to himself.
"Yeah!" Rookie said happily. "And the year before that and the year before that!"
"Oh brother." Jet Pack Guy said rolling his eyes. "Anyways, I thought you were seeing family."
"Wow you really do know everything about everybody! My family lives here in Icicle City!" Rookie responded.
"A Rookie, you know your too old for this right?" Jet asked.
"Your never too old to sit on Santa's lap!" Rookie said then noticed something. "You know, you sound a lot like my best buddy Jet Pack Guy but between you and me, your way cooler then Jet."
"Rookie! It is me!" Jet started to say then looked over to Skippy who was giving him a stern look. "I mean it is me!" Jet said changing his voice to a more jolly tone. "Santa Claus! What can I get for you this year little boy?"
"Well it's not so much something for me but for Jet Pack Guy. I really want him to smile for Christmas this year because he is always grumpy. G and I sometimes call him Mr. Grumpypants because he never wears a smile. You think you can help bring joy to his heart for Christmas this year?"
This really touched Jet Pack Guy. It normally wouldn't but something about this made a tear grow in his eye but it quickly disappeared when he remembered his nickname. "Mr. Grumpypants? You know it's not nice to call penguins names behind their backs."
"No no! It was only a joke nickname! Please don't put me on the naughty list!" Rookie begged.
Jet Pack Santa smiled. "You have never been on the naughty list Rookie, and you never will be if you keep up the good work that you do" Jet looked around then changed to a whisper. "for the EPF."
Rookie was shocked. "YOU KNOW ABOUT THE ELITE-"
Jet covered Rookie's mouth. "Keep it down. It's a secret remember?"
Rookie shook his head gesturing yes with Jet's flipper still over his beak.
"Don't worry Rookie your message will be delivered to Santa and I'm positive you will get what you asked for." Jet Pack Santa said as Rookie waddled off waving at him.
Jet smiled. "Little does Rookie know, his Christmas wish has already come true." Jet said to himself.
