"It fits you, Chris. Do you like it?"

"What would I do without my hat every Christmas, Granny?" He asked, with a booming laugh. "Have you got a cup of tea for me before I go?"

For the first time "Chris" seemed to notice the extra person in the room. He turned to look at the journalist girl with curiosity and a bit of caution.

"Now, Chris," the old lady began in a pleased voice, "this is Amy, and she's come to be your helper. We've had a very nice afternoon together waiting for you, Chris. Here is your tea."

But Chris was still looking at the girl, both hopeful and a bit dubious. In his life so far, he never met anyone who actually believed he was Santa. He especially never expected anyone to believe enough to join him in the work. Besides, the girl was cute.

Amy rose slowly to her feet, in awe of the whole situation. A growing desire to keep following this story in real life grew inside of her, but she was at a loss for words.

Chris gulped down his tea and looked at the girl again. The old lady looked at her as well.

"Are you coming with me?" He asked, turning toward the door.

Amy nodded, firmly, and with a growing smile. "I'm coming with you," she said, as the old lady wrapped a bright red scarf around her neck.

"You'll need this, dear. It can get cold in that drafty old sleigh."

The two went out the door into the blowing snow. I saw an old red sleigh in the road beyond them, and then the door closed.

At this point I woke up.
