Manic Monday’s Three Way Prompt – Who’s Been a Naughty Boy Then?

Word prompt: Naughty or Nice.

This short story was written in response to Laura M Baileys Manic Monday prompt:

Last week I wrote a parody christmas song, see here:

This weeks story is also inspired by the following word prompts:

Hotel, breakfast, caught

Who’s Been a Naughty Boy Then?

As I opened the door of the hotel room, I caught a glimpse of movement. A dainty foot slithered over the satin sheets, making a ripple.

I realised, with some embarrassment, that I had intruded upon a sacred moment. The couple beneath the covers were enjoying that moment of enrapture.

There was no ‘Do not disturb’ sign over the door handle to indicate that this was an inopportune, special moment.

I put the tray down on the side table and shouted “Breakfast” then ran quickly from the room.

Gosh, you really do see it all in the hotel trade, but I never expected to see Santa Claus and the Toothfairy enjoying each other’s company. 

What would Mrs Clause Say?

Well, surely that must place him at the very top of his Naughty list this year!

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Probably Santa had lost lots of teeth from eating all those cookies and milk, and that’s how he met the fairy. Carrot sticks and water for him this Christmas, for sure!

  2. Excellent, who would have thunk it!!

    However it reminds me of a similiat moment in the Cotteridge hotel in Woking in 1981!! Not those two, but three others – awkward!!
