Smash! The ear piercing sound of glass shattering, woke me up. “Mum, Dad! Was that you?” 

There was no reply so I crept downstairs hoping that the creaking of the floor won’t wake my parents. 

I hid behind the kitchen wall hoping that no one will see me. I heard a sound like someone eating, then I took one little step to get to my room. But that’s when I noticed a little elf and Santa’s red clothing. 

I yelled from the top of my lungs, “Santa’s real!” 

He studied me with a disappointed look on his face, and disappeared.
