'I welcome you Mr. Mansworth', said Bin London. 'Allah welcomes you.'
Rick saw the guards walking
the back of the cave.
‘You killed Christmas Bin London’, said Rick, angrily. 'I’m taking you
Bin London laughed. His head fell
and his long beard moved
‘Commercialism killed your Christmas’, he said, suddenly very serious. ‘Commercialism, capitalism and greed. There’s no religious meaning
Christmas anymore Mansworth, it only represents money
the western world. Money and evil.’
‘What about the poor children Bin London? You killed Santa Claus. You ordered one of your men to put a bomb
his sleigh, murdering him and three reindeer
‘He was just another symbol
western capitalism. The world and its children will be much happier without him.’
Suddenly the noise of a helicopter stopped the conversation. There was panic inside the cave. Bombs exploded
them and the “ra-ta-ta, ra-ta-ta” of machine-gun fire was everywhere, sounding even louder inside the cave.
Rick wasn’t stupid. He knew this was his chance to turn the situation . He jumped a guard who was standing near the door and hit him hard. The guard fell
heavily. Rick took his gun and pointed it Bin London. ‘Put your hands where I can see them MySummer Bin London, you're arrest and I’m taking you .’
Rick looked of the window as the taxi drove through the wet city streets. It was New Year’s Day and he could see Christmas lights in most of the houses he passed. He smiled
himself. Maybe Bin London had killed Christmas, but he was sure that next year the children would not be living
fear of MySummer Bin London.
