You wrote your letter to Santa, my little one?
He can’t give me what I need, said Adam.

The power of faith in the mind of Adam, did that man who was there to fulfill his wishes, was his father. He bought a gift, and said: -
My son, this is for you. Mr Claus was convinced that you deserve more and brought me to give it to you.

CHRISTMAS TALE A child was playing in the meadow near his home; the temperature was not so cold, because in Tenerife winters are mild. His mother, looking out of the window, called the child: “ Fernando, it will be dark soon, come in ! “ “Yes, Mum” answered the kid”; but a step before entering into the house he heard a noise like a .......... what was that ? Yes, definitely a meow ! Fernando followed the meowing and between two stones he saw a kitten. He was black with a white belly and afterwards he realized that the tip of his paws were white too. Without any doubt it seemed that the cat was wearing a wedding suit with white gloves. Fernando took the kitten and ran home: “Mummy, Mummy look , a kitten !” “ Fernando take a plate and give him some milk, but after that you'll take him out the house” “...but Mummy.....he is a puppy, can I keep him ? “ No Fermando” answered the mother “ you know that your father wouldn't agree, he doesn't like any animals”. Fernando said nothing, took a plate and gave some milk to the cat. He waited a few minutes watching the cat eating and then said: “ O.K. Mum, I'm taking him outside” He actually carried the cat out , but then he threw the kitten back in through his room window, came back home and ran to his room. He took a blanket , put the kitten inside and hid everything under the bed. When the father came, the family had dinner as usual . Nobody spoke about the cat. Fernando, unseen, put some food into his pocket: “ It will be very useful later” he thought. After having fed his little friend, Fernando fell asleep. Unfortunatly when his father entered into the room to give him the goodnight kiss, he obviously saw the cat. He woke his son up and told Fernando to take out the kitten next morning. “ Daddy, why cannot I keep my cat ? I can take care of him, feed and clean anywhere.....” “Stop, please ! I don't want to hear another word. I told you tomorrow morning and tomorrow morning I will not see any pet in this house.” “ Daddy, do I have a chance.......” “ Yes, if tomorrow it snows the cat will be able to stay here” replied the father. “ But Dad, it is impossible that it snows in Tenerife” “ Fernando, no one word more !” Large tears rolled down Fernando's cheeks. Later he made a very important decision: he would run away with the cat. During the night he silently left the house and reached the beach hiding himself in a boathouse. In the morning his parents looked for him everywhere in the house and in the garden. After two hours they called the police and some friends in order to find the son. In the long run no trace of Fernando. His parents were desperate and his father thought that the only thing he wanted was to find his son; after that all the animals would be welcome in his home. At four o'clock a policeman arrived with Fernando and the kitten. His parents ran toward their son and fell to their knees embracing him they started to cry. At that moment a gust of wind carried dust of snow from the Teide...it seemed like it was snowing. Fernando looking at the sky said: “Daddy, it is snowing, can I keep the kitten ?” The father with emotion said: “Yes, you can “ CLAUDIO LUPANO

“It has started to snow, I´m going to look for him.” Jane thought. She went to the door and opened it. He was not far from home, sleeping under the tree with the open book on his chest. He had been reading the same book again; Jane couldn’t remember how many times he had read it. The sun began to fall and she started to see the green bright twilight again. But that afternoon had something special, but Jane couldn’t say what it was. The picture of Darius was darkening while green and white was increasing. Jane had not seen anything so beautiful for ages. “Every cloud has a silver lining.” Jane thought about nuclear winter. After some minutes, Jane realized that Darius was looking her. “I love this, don´t you love it?” He asked her. “No, I hate it. I just want everything to be like it was before” She said. Darius stood up and went to her; he kissed her on the cheek. “Don´t be sad, sis. Today is Christmas.” He told her. Everything went to hell 10 years ago but Jane and Darius continued celebrating Christmas. The protocol was activated and the artefact was released. “We have won.” Hegemon had said. But after that he fell only 6 days later. They sat down on the floor next to Christmas tree and they opened the presents. Jane gave him a black bracelet with golden rivets. She made it herself. She was sad when she saw that he did not give her anything. “Don’t be sad, sis.” He told her while he was putting the bracelet on. “Today is Christmas and today, we will begin to win the world back. That will be my present for you: the whole world.” Ángel M. Morales Darias Idioma Inglés Nivel Intermedio I
My friend Jane Last Christmas, Sam visited her grandmother and she stayed at home. Sam loved being there in winter because there was a park with snowy trees. Sam played every afternoon. One day, she was coming home and suddenly, she found a sad girl sitting in a tree. This girl was wearing a white dress with a red bow. Sam asked her: - What’s your name? - Jane - Hi Jane. My name is Sam. What happened? - Nobody wants to play with me. - Don’t worry! I’ll play with you tomorrow. – Sam said and went away. When she arrived home, her grandmother was cleaning and said: - Sam, come here and clean the table, please! While Sam was cleaning the table, she found an old newspaper. - Granny, this girl is my friend.- said Sam while pointed the newspaper’s picture. But her grandmother didn’t pay attention and Sam went to sleep. Later, her grandmother looked at the newspaper and she thought: “It’s impossible. Jane disappeared when she was ten years. If I had played with her, maybe Jane wouldn’t have disappeared”. The next day, when her grandmother left home to buy she went out to play, as she had promised her new friend. Unfortunately, she didn’t ask permission from her grandmother and escaped from her home. At eight o’clock at night, her grandmother went to her bedroom and discovered that Sam had escaped. She went out looking for her very angry. But her anger turned into worry when she didn’t find her. She decided to return home; maybe Sam had come back. In the way, she found a red bow. She figured out that it was the same bow of Jane’s dress. In that moment, she knew that wouldn’t see Sam again... Isabel Alonso Méndez Inglés NI-1 SP
