santa klaus is coming

Humor / Mystery

Chapter 1

He woke up with blood on his hands, body in the sewers, and the smell of manure suffocating. He could remember her screaming like a banshee in his arms. And the colour red spilling everywhere, bathing them in that cursed liquid. The sun set, and she---

No.  He would find her again.

Even if his older brother Adolf Hitler would not let him.

The red would haunt him forever---the color of blood, of Santa Klaus, of his own red and black armband.

Yet her colour was yellow---the colour of the children playing, the elated sun, and the star which she proudly wore.

He would rise from the sewers later that evening, the colors of a phoenix etched onto his heart and the world around him as it drowned in the fires of rebirth; and he burned, burned, and burned.

And he solemnly swore from that point on, he would find the Allies, and forever commit himself to them-in her memory. But first, he had to find his brother and seek his betrothed status, whether dead or alive. And why the hell he was in the sewers in the first place.


He confronted Adolf and his damned mustache a year later. It had seemed he hadn’t just landed in any regular German sewer-no, he woke up dumped in Peru. So he hijacked a plane, grew a mustache, and landed in Berlin a year later because it takes that long to learn how to fly a damn plane.

“And what brings a hobo to my grand, ruling palace?” his brother said by greeting, not recognizing his younger sibling. “Such a fake mustache by the way.”

“And I suppose yours is any better, Adolf?” he replied, fuming as he snorted his mustache.

Adolf blinked. “I recognize that voice. No-it couldn’t be. I made sure he was dead. Who are you?”

“Yes! It is I, your younger brother, S. Klaus!!!!!!”

“Santa?” Adolf exclaimed incredulously.

“Rearrange those letters and you’ll get Satan.” Santa roared, pulling out a knife. “Where is my wife, Mrs. Klaus?  Did you kill her?”

Adolf gave Santa a vile smile. “Did you prefer her to die in your arms, with a plate of cookies near you?”

“No, I’d prefer her with the cookies and milk.”

Adolf rolled his eyes. “You are an unexpected variable, Santa. I told everyone you died.”

Santa moved the knife forward. “Bah-humbug. I am sure all the children are thrilled.”

He twirled the weapon in his fingers.  “I had the elves make this one.  Don’t you like it?  So much blood---better than your horrendous gas chambers.  Where’s the fun in that?”

Adolf smiled. “Then you’ll be pleased she didn’t die in the gas chambers, then. Don’t you remember you killed her?”

“Nigga say what?” Santa rapped (or should I say, wrapped).”Your boy didn’t touch no one. In fact, I did my algebra-you killed her.”

“What kind of black algebra is that?” Adolf exclaimed in horror.  “You ordered her death because she wanted the elves to build gas chambers for naughty children.  Especially the Jewish ones.”

“But that nigga was Jewish!”

Adolf seemed deep in thought.  He stroked his mustache carefully.  “Actually, no.  At least I don’t think so.”

“So she was a liar?” Santa couldn’t fathom what just transpired. And he was very, very, very angry.  And when Santa is angry, he raps (or, again, wraps).

“I was coming to town, my nose like a hound, searching from naughty to nice, my beloved’s hair full of innocent lice. I was crazy for her and her star, but there were times I wanted her to get run over by a car, so times like that when I don’t wanna have another formula, I just do my algebra.”

“Santa, I know you know that I know that I killed your wife that I know but you don’t know is an actual Jew. Santa, what really brings you to town?”

It was Santa’s turn to stroke his mustache. “Well, I know you’ve been naughty, Adolf. So I have to light you up like a Christmas Tree.”

And that was when Adolf’s head suddenly blew up, blood splattering over Santa once again.

And that was how Adolf really died, it’s just that he was more naughty than nice. That year.

M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...

Sinhala-Kella (aka Scandal Mania): Hey Fazio, I LOVED your story! The bus - I don't watch Grey's but that was vividly shocking! And the last paragraph where you said April was engaged to one man but rushed in to save another. It was sooo cute the way Jackson won April back - there were so many lovely bits - 'Shonda' (LOL!).You nee...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

missmary: This story sucked me in from the start and kept me reading when I should have been in bed. My only disappointment is how it ended. While I have nothing against Sherlock/John pairings- and this was well done- I kind've hoped it would come out a little different just for a change. Still, this was w...

CurlyRed: I read this entire book in just under 4 hours I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! i found myself emotionally attached to the characters and making personal connections that i had never experienced before while reading a book! I was constantly wanting to read more, every chapter left me on a cliff hanger tha...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

summerstone: Seriously this is one of the best books I've ever read. The plot is intriguing, I love the narrative style. Its very descriptive and unique, with minimal cliches.
