Xmas Surprise and Giveaway: Penny Watson and Klaus Brothers

SWEET ADVENTURE

Holiday Epilogue




TEXT FROM SVEN KLAUS TO ANDI DE LUCA KLAUS:
Hey! How was your girls’ night out? I heard you and Lucy and Kiana closed down Dag’s Bar. Good time?


TEXT FROM ANDI DE LUCA KLAUS TO SVEN KLAUS:
Had a blast. I love my new sisters-in-law.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Dag said you guys got a little bit wild.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
We did Christmas Shooters. Lucy crushed us.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Dag also said you were asking a lot of weird questions about Hendrik. What’s up with that?


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Nothing. Just curious about “elfin culture.”


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Really? Coz Dag said you were pestering him about illegal gambling, production of handmade liquor in the North Pole, and exchange of stolen goods.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Really? We were just chatting. I can’t remember the topics of conversation. I was stewed.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Uh huh.

REPLY FROM ANDI:
What?


REPLY FROM SVEN:
You wouldn’t be trying to pursue an investigative piece in Glasdorf. Would you?


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Bah. Gah. Wha?


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Andi…


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Gotta run. I’m curling today with your Dad.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
K. Have fun. And Andi…leave Hendrik alone. He’s harmless.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Aye aye cap-i-taine!


REPLY FROM SVEN:
GROWL!


***Four Hours Later***


TEXT FROM SVEN KLAUS TO ANDI DE LUCA KLAUS:
Hey you. How was curling?


TEXT FROM ANDI DE LUCA KLAUS TO SVEN KLAUS:
Awesome! Your dad is super competitive. We made a great team.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Glad to hear it. Anything else happen this afternoon?

REPLY FROM ANDI:
Nope. Nothing.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Nothing.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Yep. Nothing.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Really? You can’t think of anything else that happened?


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Not a thing. *yawn*


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Interesting. Coz I got an email from Hendrik.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Fudge-sicle.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Uh huh.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
In my defense, things were looking REALLY SHADY at Dag’s!


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Hendrik said you accused him of illegal gambling, liquor production, and exchange of stolen goods.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Well, first of all I saw him and Gottlieb playing cards, and then he handed him a huge sack of…something…at the back of the bar. He looked suspicious!


REPLY FROM SVEN:
They were playing cards. And it was a bag of magik pebbles. That’s the currency for elves. And it’s totally legal.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Fine. Whatever. Legal-schmegal.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
What about the liquor thing?


REPLY FROM ANDI:
I saw him take a huge jug out of his backpack and give it to Kurt. Kurt sniffed it, then took a swig and smiled. And then he handed him something wrapped in burlap. They were WHISPERING! RED FLAG! RED FLAG!


REPLY FROM SVEN:
That was a jug of homemade eggnog Hendrik made for Kurt’s wife. Egg. Nog.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It was an honest mistake.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
And the exchange of stolen goods?


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Hendrik had vials of something in his pocket, and he looked around the room furtively before making an exchange with Rolf. Rolf opened a small box, and I saw something sparkly. Like stolen gems!


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Hendrik was exchanging honey from his bee skep for a ring. Rolf is a jeweler. And elves barter for everything.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
So I gather.



REPLY FROM SVEN:
Are you going to tell me what happened when you confronted Hendrik?


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Ugh! It was so embarrassing. I burst into his cottage and started taking pictures and peppering him with questions about his suspicious activity, and…um…


REPLY FROM SVEN:
And…


REPLY FROM ANDI:
And he was proposing to his girlfriend! He’d exchanged the eggnog for a bottle from Kurt’s champagne collection. And he was offering Gertrud a sack of glittering magik pebbles and a diamond engagement ring. And…I wanted to crawl under the Christmas tree and die. EMBARRASSING!


REPLY FROM SVEN:
So, maybe you overreacted a bit.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Yeah, maybe.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
Hendrik wasn’t mad. He said you made their engagement evening “unforgettable.”


REPLY FROM ANDI:
He and Gertrud sent me home with gingerbread cookies, eggnog, and some magik pebbles. Cripes.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
I think you need a new project.


REPLY FROM ANDI:
I already started one. I’m writing about the history of eggnog for the ELFIN HOLIDAY NEWSLETTER. If you hurry home, you can help me with the taste test.


REPLY FROM SVEN:
On my way. Love you, Pit Bull!


REPLY FROM ANDI:
Love you, Shaggy Lion! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
