Hero name: ellax
And my entry:
Christmas Eve: for the first time all year, the Dark Wing team room was quiet. Most of the members had returned to their families for the holiday. Sadly, one person had to stay behind to deter others from attacking, and on that day that sorry duty fell to me, Ellax. I lounged disconsolately in one of the chairs, watching my feline sidekick destroy some Hasselhoff records. Without meaning to I began to doze off.
The emergency siren jarred me awake. Red alert! I jumped up and dashed to the console; the screens before me flickered on and I was confronted with the distressed face of the mayor of Yollywood, Patrick Moss. "Ellax! Thank god someone's still there. I feared everyone would be gone for Christmas!"
"Mayor, what's happened?!"
"The Grinch has kidnapped Noelle Claus, Santa's daughter! My son Chris is distraught. Their wedding was supposed to be today! And now Santa has shut down all his toy factories and ordered all the elves and reindeer to look for his daughter. If we don't find her soon, Christmas will be cancelled!"
I noted how panicked he looked. "Mayor, don't worry," I said firmly. "I assure you everything will be alright. Leave it to me!"
20 minutes of research on the internet was all it took; these days even villains leave a trail online! "Come on, Apollo!" I said as I ran to grab my cape. My sidekick leapt eagerly to my side. "Let's go save Christmas!!"
Within ten minutes we had reached Chez Pierre, an abandoned French restaurant on the edge of Yollywood. I now knew that this was where Noelle and the Grinch had their first date when they were teenagers! Once I had found out they'd dated, it was quite simple to deduce the Grinch's plan. Of course stopping his old love from marrying the mayor's son was his primary motive; ruining Christmas was just the icing on the cake!
After surveying the room below, Apollo and I burst through the skylight and in the ensuing confusion Apollo jumped onto the Grinch's face to block his vision while I restrained him and tied him up. That done, I went over to release Noelle Claus, who had been gagged and tied to a chair in a corner of the room. "Are you okay?"
"I'm fine!" she said, glaring at the Grinch with hatred. "He didn't hurt me. But am I too late for the wedding?"
"Not at all. There's a car waiting to take you there outside. Go on," I said, smiling as I donned a pair of shades. "Marry Chris Moss."
