Preston is the nightmare child, that Nick, a reluctant mall Santa, has always dreaded.
I picked up an old notebook, opened it, and it fell open to this little story, based on the stories of H.P. Lovecraft.
This week’s piece is part of a project I have been working on that was inspired by last episode’s Krampus poem.
Nick hates Christmas. He hates it because his mother has a habit of calling him “her little Santa Claus” and the kids at school found out, and now he’s bullied because of it.
