Here’s my latest from last week’s FlashFriday photo prompt:


“Number Six please take a step forward. Say ‘Ho, ho, ho.’”

Her face contorted as must Santa to get down his chimney. “I don’t think so.”

“Thank you, Number Six. Please step back.” He looked at Janet. “Well…”

“I know, I know. I can’t tell. They all look the same, sound the same.” She buried her face in her hands and cried. “We’ll never find who did it…”

“Don’t worry Janet, we’ll catch the bastard.”

She threw her arms, tight at her mom wrapped her ribbon, around his waist. “That’s all I want for Christmas.”

Officer Dan opened the door to the lineup room, pulled out his revolver and shot every single Santa in the head, returned to Janet, and said, “See, I told you we’d get him.”

Janet took one of the Santas in her hands and ripped off its head. She took the Officer Dan doll and smashed the second Santa, looked to her therapist and smiled.
