Christmas Day

I woke up this morning to find that the fat man had been inside the house! I checked all the doors and windows and they were still secure, then I saw sooty footprints. Why didn’t anyone warn me about the … Continue reading

Christmas Eve

I’m cautiously optimistic about surviving this caper. I’ve given up getting the ransom, but there’s no sign that the fat man has located us. The rookie seems content either way, so I don’t think she’ll give us away. The deadline’s … Continue reading

Operation Christmas Tree

Operation Christmas Tree was a success. We blended with holiday goers at a tree farm, quickly located our target, and spirited it away before anyone noticed (except for that guard we bribed near the car). The hostage is now at … Continue reading
