Every child wants to appease Santa. All except one, that is.

Cassandra once again ruins a Christmas Eve celebration and is lectured by Santa for her bad behaviour. She receives the standard punishment -- a single lump of coal -- but baffles everyone by smiling the entire time. Could Cassandra have an ulterior motive for her naughtiness? A humorous Christmas short story totalling around 3,100 words.

This comes with a bonus short story, 'Coal New Problem', where Santa wages war on the bad children of the world and ends up on the receiving end of the fight. Another humorous Christmas short story at 3,200 words.
