    The flag whipped smartly in the crisp breeze off lake Ann Hydrous. Little Jovians—with the crushing gravity of the planet, all Jovians were little—saluted the Green and White. Elder Rundy stroked his beard before leading his charges in the Pledge of Forbearance.

    Back inside the one-room schoolhouse, Rundy got down to the business of training his elves.

    “Listen up, you misbegotten freaks. Christmas is coming to Mars next month and to Earth in December. If you don’t learn to read by next week, you will not be chosen for Santa’s Little Helpers Squad. You’ll be wiping down the sleigh or feeding reindeer. Now, open your books to the page with red stars and practice the word list.”

    The class groaned as pages shuffled. Suddenly, from the back of the room, a little voice squeaked:

    “These look more like snowflakes.”

    Elder Rundy boomed, “Who said that?”

    Little Billy stood up. “I-I did, sir. I’m sorry!”

    “Sorry? You slay me, boy. I’ve waited 140 years for one of you dim-wits to notice. Come up here! This is your job now.”
