The Christmas Gambler

The cunning Christmas Gambler stowed away in Santa’s bag. When the elves spotted him he talked them into a game of chance.
Santa chugged his espresso spiked hot cocoa to stay awake. All while the gambler maniacally laughed as he slew the elves at the poker game.

The undercover CIB (Christmas Investigation Bureau) agents saw through the gambler’s lies and threw him into candy cane jail, saving Christmas. While the elves caught gambling with the stocking stuffers and gifts were sentenced to reindeer stall cleaning duty.

Very short stories I wrote for VSS365 and VSSChristmas yesterday and today on Twitter. The prompts for VSS365 are cunning and lies. The prompts for VSSChristmas are slay and stocking.
