Nolan glanced down at at his watch and said quietly "10." He slowly started to walk away, hoping that the priest would follow him. "No need to worry, my friend. I've used more complex components than this before... it should be cake. A nice little warning sign at best. A few frightened people, but can you blame them." He trotted along, holding up his hand. He slowly began to lower his fingers until he got to his thumb. "One." He lowered his finger.

On cue, the bomb detonated, sending people around the base several feet forward. One of the columns had a large chunk of stone taken out of it. While the people around it were panicked, there was little to no real harm that it was capable of doing. A small explosive, a small warning. Written on the side of what's left of the candy cane was written "SANTA is coming for you."

Nolan turned to the priest and smiled. "Now then, you had a plan?"

Joy was picking out a more festive table cloth when she heard the explosion. She ran out to see what happened, her uniform giving her a way through the crowds. Once she got to the scene she saw the message, "SANTA is coming for you." "This will just not do." Joy said to herself. She was the only Elf agent on the scene at the time so she pulled out her caramel apple H-phone, and called for a clean and cover crew. They got there almost instantly and began to close off the section, spreading a story about how a fuse box blew out.

There would be no bombings reported in the News only the one of the malfunction. But she would get to the bottom of this before they had any more chances to ruin the spirit. She knew who she had to call. "Yule there was a bomb set off in the Holly mall. You know what to do."

Yule hung up his cloak as the day ended and retrieved his hat and cape.  Walking out into the street, it began to snow, light fluffy natural snow as opposed to the rough ice chips the machines produced.  No matter how far they pushed, the artificial never quite measured up and he enjoyed the moment for what it was.

Later, he would have dinner with his regulation wife and his two regulation children and sit around the regulation fire.  He wouldn't enjoy it nearly as much as this moment, mostly because the family was just another trimming to his position, but partly because he was turning things over in his head.  The bombing had been bad enough, but other things were tugging at his head.  Present had informed him of eleven calls reporting unauthorized gifts brought home by children.  Doubtless there were more that hadn't been reported.  Something was happening, and he wasn't sure whether to be excited or apprehensive.


December 17th, Eight Days to Christmas

Yule woke to the sounds of explosions, and the feeling didn't go away.  Things were getting interesting.

Joy woke up at at precisely at six am. It had been a late night after the bombing, she still had to bake the fruit cake and other sweets that night. She smelled the perfect smell of mauled cider brewing and of course hot chocolate for the little ones. She knew from a young age that she would never be able to have kids of her own, but thanks to her postion she was able to adopt two of her own. Most of the time when parents are found to be naughty and sent to camps their children are given to Elf officers. They are the best suited to take care of children, and since she already had the children there was no need for a mate.

She made her way downstairs and turned on the Holly Jolly News network while she poured herself a cup of cider. Eight more days until Christmas. Her mother and children woke up precisely at seven with breakfast ready and waiting. Joy smiled while her family sat down and ate breakfast togeather. It worked like perfect clockwork, just the way she liked it. At seven thirty the bombs went off.

Chris jumped as the explosions a short distance away rattled his windows.  Letting out a sigh, he adjusted his snow white tie and headed out to work.  "Who was the bomber today?" he wondered.  Yesterday's debacle was almost without a doubt the work of Nolan, he could tell that much from what he had heard.  Others in the department would surely notice as well, so Chris had no choice but to reveal his findings.  After all, it'd be suspicious if one of the leading officers of Christmas Past suddenly was unable to gather any information on GRINCH's work.  Of course, as far as his report or anyone else was concerned, it was just the work of one of their many unnamed serial bombers, identified by their MO but without a face or a name.

But today's bombing was different.  It was unusual for Nolan to hit this many targets in such a short time frame.  Then again, 'tis the season, and Chris new that he was probably not the only one who was keeping busy.  But still, he had his doubts.  It would require furthur investigation once he got to the office.

Shaking snow off his boots as a resurfacing machine passed by replacing the trodden snow behind him, he let out a long sigh and stode chipperly into Spirit Headquarters.

Alexander got up early to deliver his sermon in his current makeshift church, he did so every morning not just Sundays, church is really all some people had anymore and many counted on it to get them through the day. Once he he finished he once again dawned his cross, revolver and akruba and headed out. For the past week he had been capturing and torturing SANTA agents in hopes of obtaining important information. However the grunts only held small pieces of information and GRINCH would need more intelligence on the rumored new weapon SANTA were planning to employ.

That day Alexander had a new plan, he would need to obtain information from a higher ranked official. They of course should hold valuable information but Alexander knew it was going to be a risky job. First up he would need to find and identify a higher ranked SANTA agent to capture. And so he headed in to town.

Oly sat in his " home" , a few rooms of abandoned sewer that were deep below the surface, suitable enough to avoid the prying eyes of SANTA, or atleast, the SANTA agents that didn't know where to look. He'd rigged cameras throughout the nearby sewer system so that he'd recieve warning if anything larger than a dog moved so much as an inch too close to his hidden home, " too close " being nearly a half-mile in all directions from his home. Today though, he was woken up by the sound of a new seismic sensor's alarm he had installed going off. Well, that and the ground shaking, of course.

But this was no earthquake. Instead, the reverberations in the Earth were a result of the simultaneous explosions of hundreds of explosive presents on the surface. Oly quickly jumped out of bed, looking over the seismic sensor eagerily despite the fact that he had felt the explosions himself, and suddenly felt like singing to himself a mockery of a famous Christmas song;

" Have a horrid, torrid Christmas,
It's the worst time of the year!
I don't know, but somethin' tells me,
there's gotta be bodies up there!
Have a horrid, torrid Christmas,
And when you walk down the street,
Say hello to all the friends you knew,
and everyone else too.

Oh ho,
the bombs blow,
Hung from the gallows;
You'll need a lotta barrows!
Have a horrid, torrid Christmas,
and in case you didn't hear,
thanks to Oly,
it's a horrid,
torrid Christmas this year!
"

He sung this to himself as he danced around the room, imaging the carnage on the surface, all of it caused by his nefarious schemes, and dressed in his usual garb, preparing to witness it all firsthand. " Damn... I should've put up cameras to record it! " Oly thought to himself, annoyed that the idea hadn't come to him sooner.

As Alexander made his way in to town he heard the massive explosions and even stumbled slightly from the shaking ground beneath his feet. He readjusted his hat and a grimace swept over him. He knew the explosion had to of been a bombing and he knew it had to of been an out of line GRINCH agent. SANTA was harsh but they would never do something so massive publicly.

He marched on slightly distracted from his original goal but he had to see the devastation for himself. He dreaded the thought however as people were surely killed. But he knew he may be able to take advantage of the situation and capture whatever fool comes jollying over to investigate.

Yule stood outside a gaping hole in the side of a house, his caped form cutting an imposing figure among the throng of green Elves.  Presently he was examining a strip of paper believe to have come off the culprit package, it's edges frayed and singed.  SANTA was written across it in almost convincing type face.

"Think Garland's team is moving up to in house peek trapping?"  Asked a junior Future agent by his side.  The lad still wore green he was so new to the division.

"No," Yule answered, holding the strip to the light to show him, "there's no watermark, and the lettering is off.  Observe the way the 'N' is crooked over to the right.  It's probably from the same machine that made the counterfeit gifts we collected yesterday."

"They had the same offset?"

"I haven't the slightest.  But the evidence locker exploded this morning, which certainly tells us something."  He turned and started back towards headquarters, "come along."

"Aren't we going to check for-"

"The weapons man was never here and all evidence in the package was destroyed with it.  As usual, the answer lies in the hearts and minds of our citizens, and we must pry it out of them..."  He slammed his cane across his subordinate's path to halt him, his eyes falling upon a man with a large cross on his back.  "An excellent start, I should think," he murmured, holding a nutcracker shaped camera aloft and sending the man's picture to Past.  He would receive everything there was on the man before long.

When Joy made it to the head courters the building was a blur with activity. While the HO HO HO's main job is internal affairs, they also deal with public announcements. She walked into briefing room, as head of her department she would give the official message about the bomb. She sat down for her touch ups, while her assistant Holly prepped her for her speech and the cameras and snow was getting set in place. There about one hundred bombs went off that morning thanks to what some described as a strange man gave out presents to children coming out of school. Some had reported the strange behavior the evening before and sent in the packages.

When the cameras were ready Joy stepped up to the podium, a beautifully decorated Santa's workshop stood behind her. She looked directly into the cameras with a sad look upon her face, when the cameras started to broadcast.

"I am very sorry to say that over three dozen families life's were lost today. The families that died failed to replace old outdated Christmas tree lights. After being left on the recommend whole night the old non-regulation lights exploded. This could and will happen to any of those still out there with non-regulation lights. This is a great tragedy, but also let it be a reminder that all the rule are there for a reason. With that said Merry Christmas and remember to be nice!."

The bombing was far larger than Chris origionaly suspected, and definetly not the work of Nolan.  He had sent in his report on his findings for yesterday's bombing already and was in the process of sifting though the profiles on past bombings when the call came in from Yule.  Looking over the picture, he immediatley recognized the subject.  The cross, the black hat, it was Father Alexander Burton.  As far as the records went he was an normal, if somewhat mysterious, citizen, though Chris of course knew better.  He made a point of knowing most of the prominent GRINCH operatives, even those like Burton who he had not yet met.  Still, regardless of his connection, Chris had to send out the report, lest he look suspicious himself.

Chris sifted though photographs of citizens who matched the profile of the image sent in by Yule, standard procedure for IDing unknown subjects.  After all, why would Chris know off the top of his head who was in the picture?  After eventually locating a match, he called up Yule with the intel.

//Yule.// he said once the other end of the phone had been picked up,  //It's Noel, Christmas Past.  I've got the intel on the photograph you sent us.  Subject is a Father Alexander Burton, a preacher.  As I'm sure you've gathered, he's a devoutly religious man.  Our info on him is a bit sparce.  He's kept fairly quiet and has managed to remain off our radar for the most part.  I don't imagine he'll be any trouble.//  Chris paused for a moment before delivering a last piece of information.  While it may be damning for Burton, Chris would not be able to overlook it unnoticed.  //That said though,// he continued, //Images from the bombing yesterday place him in the area nearby when the attack happend.//

As Alexander walked the street gazing upon some of the devastation he walked by some SANTA agents investigating one of the blown up houses. One man in particular looked very intimidating, Alexander knew he had to be a higher up, no one else could get away with wearing such dark clothing. There were far to many people around to even attempt to capture him as many others were also investigating the house.

Alexander knew he looked suspicious, faking jolliness was in no way his forte. So he continued as innocent looking as possible, he knelt down and said a small prayer for those who had been killed before standing up and resuming his walk.

Garland slept roughly the previous night. The events of the previous day and had him unable to sleep to the point where he actually requested his guard to not sing him to sleep. The explosions of the morning broke him out of the uncomfortable sleep to a much worse feeling. The explosions sounded like nothing of his work, almost causing him to be sick right there in his bed. After checking in at his office, he sent a message to the Ho Ho Ho department.

Joy, next time there is a suspicious incident of gifting, please alert me immediately. We can not afford to be so lax as to wait even one day this close to the Day. Sure, we have been lucky in previous years, but the events of Christmas Past are no guarantee of a safe Christmas Future.
Joyous Blessings to you,
Garland Wassail, Caroling Special Presents Squad.


With that finished, he immediately left to see one of the bombing sites for himself. With him were a few additional elves.

"These marks, the scorching pattern and splintering... Surely these were powerful explosives, but they were not a quality bomb."

The elves that were not singing started taking some notes.

After Oly finished dressing in his traditional jolly coat and hat, etc, he made his way up to the surface, going over Phase 2 in his mind repeatedly, even though he could practically recite the entire plan verbatim. Shock and Awe, respectively Phase 1 and Phase 2. Climbing out of the sewer after looking around to make sure no saw him coming out of the manhole, he resumed his usual joyous behavior, skipping to see Nolan, his smile bigger than ever as he passed the sites of the explosions, making sure to keep his distance, well aware of the principle that criminals like to visit the site of the crime after the act. Just because someone is insane, doesn't mean they're not logical... well... occasionally yes in Oly's case.

When he reached Nolan's home(or apartment?) he knocked on the door loudly, singing, " Have a Holly, Jolly, Oly Christmas, Nolan! You better show yourself and be a man! Fear not, for it is I, the greatest of the great, the best of the best, yet the worst of the worst and the most belittled of the belittled, Oly! "

Nolan strapped on his remaining tools under his repair-man uniform and quickly glanced at the door. He quickly went over to the door and opened it. He smiled after hearing Oly's rhyme and nodded. "Oh I'll be there, don't you worry. In fact I'm getting prepared as we speak."
