Buddy the elf was trudging through the snow on Christmas Eve. He was returning home to his wife, Jovie and his daughter, Anna. (Just made this name up, in the film the baby didn't have a name)

He had just spoken to Santa about Anna, telling him what Buddy thought where good presents for her. Santa had assured him that Anna was on the good list and was getting some wonderful presents. As Buddy walked through the door he saw Jovie talking to Anna. Anna was going to be one this Christmas, so he wanted to make sure everything would be perfect.

"Is she asleep?" Buddy asked trying to sneak over to where the two girls were sitting.

"Just. She's so beautiful when she's asleep."Jovie answered.

"Can I see her?"

"Yes, of course. Come quietly over here." Buddy tried to quietly walk over to where Jovie was sitting holding Anna, but unfortunately Buddy tripped on the little lamp that was placed on the floor. He tried to steady himself by holding onto a chair, but that fell over too. Buddy lay on the floor dreading the sound of Anna waking up, when she didn't, he tried to shift the chair out the way and sit up. But he had been lying on the lamp and the bulb started to burn him.

"Ouch!" He yelled, jumping up, that made the chair go flying half way across the little room; It landed loudly on the floor.

"Oh dear." Said Jovie, frowning slightly. Both went very quiet, listening for the tell tale sound of Anna waking up. Luckily she didn't.

Buddy sighed and decided to take Anna to her room to sleep in a peaceful environment.

As Buddy lay her down in her bed, she opened her eyes sleepily,

"Christmas?" She said in a baby voice

"Not yet, darling. You just go back to sleep and it will be Christmas before you know it."

During the night Santa knocked at his door.

"SSSHHHH!" Cried Buddy opening the door, "I'm sorry, Jovie and Anna are asleep."

"I'm sorry to wake you all, but there's something important you have to do for me. You have travelled to New York before, and I need you to do it again for me." Santa looked as if he hadn't slept of a million years.

"Ok, when?"

"Oh, umm. Now?"

"What? I can't leave now its Anna's first Christmas tomorrow, I can't just leave them!"

"I know, I wouldn't ask you to do this unless it was important. I can stay with them. You will most likely be back before morning anyway."

"Ok... what is it?"

If you want more please review! I will get back to it later.
