6. Advent Calendar

Now, if you own the snow-importation company in Uzbekistan, I feel sorry for you. Very sorry. Emmy does tend to get a little angry when things don't go her way, to say the least. I heard from the survivors that Emmy's furious, raging scream was what caused and will cause all of the earthquakes in the world. Now that was some scream. Anyway, back to the story.

 

"ARRGH! WHAT ARE YOU STANDING THERE FOR?! DO SOMETHING!" Emmy caterwauled. "GET ME SOME SNOW TO BUILD MY SNOWMAN NOW, PERCY! DO IT NOW! THE JUDGES ARE COMING AROUND TOMORROW AND I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED!"

I supposed that the cacophony was Emmy. I was in with a chance of winning the competition! I had already finished the main features of my snowman and was working on the detail. My snowman was going to be a huge giant like the one from Jack and the Beanstalk. I had even put a lump of snow next to it to look like the beanstalk. Day was just beginning to turn into night when I heard Mum.

"Tea-time, Trevor!" called Mum. I went inside and had my dinner, then brushed my teeth and went to bed. Tomorrow, the snowmen would be judged. Tomorrow, my snowman would be deemed the winner. Tomorrow, Emmy would break the sound barrier. Tomorrow, well, you get the idea.

Zzzzzzzz I went as I snored my way through the night, dreaming of Santa's Grotto.

Bi-beep! Bi-beep! Bi-beep! Bi-beep! Still half asleep, I fumbled across my bedside table and found the alarm clock. I pressed the off button and dragged myself out of bed, which is no mean feat, unless you happen to have Mum by your side up-turning your bed. Once I was dressed, I ran downstairs and checked my advent calendar. I wasn't surprised. It was five days running now. I was thinking of complaining to the advent calendar company for the absence of the chocolates. It couldn't have been my brother, as he was complaining of the same thing. And Mum. And Dad. And Emmy. And all my friends. Coming to think of it, nobody's had any advent calendar chocolates for the past five days. How strange.
