A most selfish girl
In the town of Costashire, lived little Rimona with her parents Richard and Mona.
Richard, the Duke and the Duchess loved their little Rimona and spoilt her silly with innumerable presents.
All the attention went to little Rimona’s head and she turned into a most selfish child.
She thought everything belonged to her.
Every Christmas she wished for the most exotic presents and every Christmas Santa was generous enough to grant her every wish. But he decided that something had to be done about her selfishness.
This year Rimona wanted to meet Santa himself as her Christmas gift. Santa informed Rimona’s father that he would meet her but she would have to come to the north pole by his reindeer pulled sleigh.
The happy day arrived. Rimona dressed in a flowery lily white dress and sat in the sleigh.
Rimona took in the sights and sounds of the journey with wonder in her eyes.
She saw a boy happily working on a bench with his carpenter father. The tools were old and he had to work hard to shape the wood.
She saw a girl selling flowers in the market, her clothes were torn and a smile adorned her beautiful face.
She saw twins outside a bakery, looking longingly at the decorated cakes inside. They were surely hungry but they walked away.
As she neared the pole, she saw a child freezing in the cold, as it’s mother held it to her bosom.
At the end of the journey, Rimona met Santa happily and asked for her goodies.
On her return journey she had made new friends, for they had met a child Santa.
“Papa, giving gave me more joy than receiving. Thank you for my greatest gift.”, and she planted a kiss on her happy parents cheeks.
