XMAS - Blurb
Marie never expected to wake up in North Pole City, let alone become Santa’s Emergency Replacement. It was a job she never wanted but couldn’t turn down, thanks to Clarence, Santa’s right hand man. Now, Marie has to work with Clarence, who believes she is some kind of criminal who will cause the destruction of everything he holds dear. Trying to prove that he’s wrong, Marie keeps making mistakes that push them even further apart. It doesn’t help that she has a past she’d rather keep hidden. However, trying to keep her past where it should belong isn’t easy. Just when Marie starts to feel like things are coming together, a madman with a bone to pick, and Christmas to ruin, threatens the whole of the North Pole Organization. Marie must rely on Clarence and her new friends to help her face her past before Christmas is gone forever. But does she have the courage to truly be herself when it could mean losing everything?

“Just come back this way, nice and easy. Come back to your room and I’ll forget all this ever happened.” He held the gun with one hand, steadying it with the other. All he had to do was squeeze the trigger.

“No!” she yelled in defiance as thunder cracked around them. Rain streamed down her filthy flesh and unwashed hair. “I’m not going back to that. I won’t be your prisoner. You won’t use me any more!” She trembled all over, remembering all the things she’d been forced to do. All the things that had happened since her parents had disappeared. “I’d rather die!”

“Fine.” He brought the gun to bear as she ran towards the ladder and fired. Lightning lit up the sky with the sudden flash of ignited powder. It filled the night with an almost overwhelming intensity as the bullet sped from the chamber of the handgun.

The bullet struck just left of her chest, near the shoulder blade. She lost balance, twisting from the force. With eyes wide open in shock, she stared at the man who had taken everything away, her freedom, her family, and now, her life. Her feet continued to twist as her head whipped around, sending her over the roof’s edge as thunder rumbled through the air. A scream of agony was forced through frozen lips, and then was silenced as the rain came pouring down.
