9th Annual Holiday Contest: The Evil Dr. Gerbil Steals Christmas

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…so I can get cozy on the couch and start reading Susanna Leonard Hill’s Holiday Contest story entries. Not sure where to find them? Head on over here to read all about the contest and find the links to all the entries. I managed to squeak my story in at the last minute, and at 249 words!

It’s time to see what my beloved (or not so beloved) The Evil Dr. Gerbil is up to. When we last left off The Evil Dr. Gerbil managed to escape from prison again with the help of his on again, off again, girlfriend Patty Partridge, a stolen enchanted cauldron, and a little magic. Inspector Wallaby put his best agent, Wonder Weasel, on the case.

Fox Breaking News

Bits of rodent droppings, and traces of pear were found at the scene, Investigators believe this to be the work of The Evil Dr. Gerbil, and his on again, off again girlfriend Patty Partridge.

 Story at 11…

“Oh Gerbs, you truly are the Evilest villain in town!”

“This is my greatest work yet, Patty! I’ve stolen Christmas…Christmas! No presents, no smiling children, no stockings by the chimney. Let’s see what those miserable critics have to say about me now!”
