Mischief Makers 2020: Prologue

I’m not sure this is a good idea after all.” Santa stood at the launchpad looking at two of his top Mischief Makers, Figgy Frost and Pixie Powder.

Twas the night before mischief and Santa was having second thoughts about their plan. Joe, one of Pixie and Figgy’s assigned kids, had caught the elves in the act of mischief making at the end of the season last year. At first, Santa had agreed to Pixie’s idea of letting Joe help with the shenanigans, but now he was having second thoughts. 

“But he was so excited last year, Santa!” squeaked Figgy.

“And we have so many fun ideas!” Pixie piped in.

“Oh Santa, we have to let them try,” said Lil, one of the Chief Elves in charge of the Mischief Maker program. Her partner, Nim, enthusiastically nodded her head.

Glitter, their reindeer and sidekick, stomped a hoof and voiced a concern she’d been having since the previous December. “Santa, if we do not at least try to work with Joe, we would have to give up the house entirely and be reassigned. Jake has not seen us in action. Do we really want to leave him wondering what happened to his elves?”

Santa eyed Glitter with a rosy grin and shook his head. “Playing on my weakness, Glitter?”

Glitter snorted cheerfully, she knew Santa would never willingly disappoint a child.

Figgy, Pixie, Nim, and Lil all held their breath hoping Santa would say yes.

“Ok team, but this is a trial run. I don’t want other Mischief Makers thinking they can do the same. It’s too risky.”

The team cheered and Figgy, Pixie, and Glitter zipped into the night sky, eager to get started on the season. 

Nim and Lil crouched, ready to spring up and follow them into the dark and starry night, but Santa stopped them.

“Ahem. Aren’t you forgetting something?”

Nim and Lil had gotten so caught up in their friends’ enthusiasm, they had forgotten their responsibilities as Chief Mischief Makers. Their shoulders slumped. 

“Of course,” sighed Lil. “Come on Nim, let’s go train the new recruits.” 

Santa watched Nim and Lil trudge towards the training area with concern. He had noticed over the past year that they were not as excited about their duties at the North Pole. Perhaps it was because they spent most of their first year helping Figgy and Pixie with their solo assignment and hadn’t had time to get used to their new roles.

He would have to keep an eye on them.

Breaking News! Mischief Makers’ New Partnership
By Sparkly Sprinkles

This just in! 

In an unprecedented move, Santa approved Pixie Powder and Figgy Frost to recruit their own assigned child as a new Mischief Maker! Joe, now 9 years old, discovered The Truth about Figgy and Pixie on their last night, putting the entire program at risk. 

Luckily, the team salvaged the blunder and came up with a plan to keep Christmas Mischief alive in Joe’s house. 

Joe, still reeling from the shock of finding out the elves really do exist, agreed to help them plan and carry out next season’s fun. 

When asked why he made an exception to the Mischief Maker Code, Santa hemmed, hawed, coughed and then began a round of Jingle Bells, Batman Smells. Soon, the whole crowd of elves joined in and this reporter was unable to uncover more.

Powder and Frost decided that just because Joe knows about their magic, doesn’t mean their fun has to stop. After all, he doesn’t have to know everything
