The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Your Secret Is Safe With Me
“Here’s my wish list for next year.” Katt nudged the notepad.
“Next year?” Santa guffawed. “You weren’t good this year, last year, or the year before that.”
“What’s your point? I expect something special.”
“You’ll get what I give you and you’ll like it!” Santa snapped, turning towards the fireplace. “Now, stop making me late.”
Santa vanished up the chimney. Katt strutted to the tree, found his present: a heated cat bed, already plugged in and warm.
Santa loves us all, even in naughty years, Katt purred as he climbed in. Don’t worry, Santa. Your secret is safe with me.
