A Christmas Story

I was just only a little orphan girl.At our home we never got to celebrate,Christmas.Since I was born I had nothing in my pockets. It was tough living here with not much to do.But hey who am I to complain many children don’t have a home like me. Simon the cat was my friend. The others called him my boyfriend. Since I was so upset  I kind of felt that way. Usually Christmas carol singers will knock at the door and sing for us. But for no reason at all the care workers would slam the door and tell them to stay away. I mean how rude is that how would they feel if someone did the same to them.

As the sunset  had risen I knew that it was nearly time for bed. All the children would rush upstairs and fight over who would enter the bathroom first. I didn’t do that because I knew that it was wrong and I will just end up in trouble. So I Just sat waiting for them to finish. Finally it was night . I wanted to see the pebble corner Big Christmas Tree so badly.For the past years I had never got a gift from Santa Claus. I think that we didn’t get gifts from Santa is because we had never celebrated. It just wasn’t fair.

Every care worker said I was a good girl and they trusted me more than their friends.When they say that I smile and say it was true. Simon my pet squirrel [my talking pet boyfriend] loved to tell me stories that one day Santa will give me a present but I knew that would never happen. She also told me if you only believe the magic happens. I had repeated that phrase over again in my head and from there I had always believed.

I wanted to sneak out to go to Pebble corner and see the Big Christmas Tree. I knew many people would be there and stare at the lights and decoration. I wanted to do that also,to experience the Christmas spirit. The stars would be twinkling in the sky and they will shine so bright people would even be taking pictures. First of all I put on my clothes and packed some food and I was all ready to go. This was the time. To live the dream I had always wanted to live. I had to do it now or never. As I opened the door my body shivered with so much fear. I knew this was so wrong, but I had to it otherwise Santa Claus won’t like me but I liked him he is such a wonderful man. Everyone called me the good girl, I didn’t want that to change.The more I thought about it more guilt came to me. It was a big risk but I had to take it.

Pebble Corner wasn’t far from here it took only five minutes to get there. I closed my eyes and took a deep breathe. I couldn’t stop smiling as I didn’t think that I made it . The place I had always wanted to go. Finally as I opened my eyes I drifted to another planet. The tree was there standing tall and proud. My hands shook so fast that I had a headache, but I didn’t mind my Christmas miracle kicked through the air. My heart beamed with joy. The lights were so bright that it made me feel so blessed and special. I cried because I had never in my life had seen something incredible and wonderful in my life. I stayed there for a long time admiring everything. People started to leave,but I wanted to stay there forever. God had blessed me with something so overwhelming.I had the chance to believe and let the magic happen. As I looked in the sky I could almost see Santa with the presents . But that wasn’t all Christmas was all about. It was about the birth of our new king Jesus and sharing the amazing time with your family. That was what I wanted everyone in the house to be there with me. I knew that it would of not happened, but hey what can we do.

It was time to head back home. I had heard rustling but I pretended it was nothing. I saw someone in the distance. As turned back I found Father Christmas behind me. I reached to give him a hug and he smiled with delight. He gave me a present. I said to him that I will hide it and open it on Christmas Day. Then he told me to look in my pocket. I knew that I had nothing in my pocket since I was born but I believed and let the magic happen. I reached into my pocket and found  a crystal star. He told me that only good children get stars and from there  I knew that I was always a good boy and by the way Santa Claus liked me [yes I am so glad].

    Good afternoon Yohana,
    What an interesting story. I liked how you described where the christmas tree was- Pebble corner. I also liked when you were describing how you felt when you saw the tree. Many people don’t do that. But try to avoid using The end at the end of your stories. Overall, amazing story.
