12 Tales of Christmas, Day 3

There was a sound in the night, and it woke Andrew. He drew back his covers and slid from his bed. In the hall he quailed...maybe it was just his older brother Matt, about to pour syrup on his sheets again. On the hearth, by the Christmas tree, Andrew caught a glimmer. It was a book, sparkling green and red. He lifted the cover, turned the pages. It was Santa's Twice-Checked List! 'He must have dropped it,' Andrew whispered, and set it back for Santa to find. But not before finding his brother's name and changing nice to naughty.
