Cupid lay beside Blitzen, his face turned toward the wall, sheet drawn up to his chin.
“What is it, Cupie? Is something wrong?”
“I’m…just tired. That’s all. I’ve got a lot on my mind.”
“It’s okay – let’s just snuggle”, Blitzen lazily stroked his back with her hooves. “There’s always tomorrow morning,” she whispered in his ear.
Cupid tossed back the sheet and sprang from Blitzen’s reach. He pulled her bra from his antler – tossed it to her. “What about Donner. Won’t he be expecting you home?” The beauty of having an affair with a married doe was that he wasn’t expected to serve breakfast. The stolen moments were quite enough for this buck, thank you very much. He paced.
“He’s out-of-town. Helping a ‘friend’ with a business deal,” Blitzen snorted. “I can just imagine. That slut Vixen is conveniently out-of-town, as well. I tried to set up an emergency meeting, and she’s ‘unavailable’. I know a load of doe diarrhea when I hear it.”
“Yes, Santa’s getting out of rehab…the Sheriff has been nosing around, wanting to know where all the reindeer are. Someone must have tipped him off. Rudolph hasn’t been seen in weeks. Then that ransom note. There’s only 10 days till Christmas – we need a plan.”
Cupid continued pacing. That last meeting of the Reindeer club had been quite the…well, the only word that came to mind was “cluster”. Damn it. They were running out of time.
