    Chapter 6 - Cold as stone.

    Alexander, Shotgun, MoreEpicThanYou, and General Olaf are all outside of the royal hut, waiting for MantaRevan to get back. It's 20 below zero, and the fire is starting to die...

    Alexander: Shotgun, where did Chrrr- istos, Strr- rodon and Brannn- don Herrr- ren go again?
    Shotgun: Tooo Spaarrrta.
    Alexander: Ohhh yeeaah.
    MoreEpicThanYou: It sure is warm out here.
    General Olaf: Warm? WARM? Hooow can yooou say thaaat...?
    MoreEpicThanYou: Why are you so cold?
    General Olaf: 'Cause it's 20 degrees below zero. Hey, I'm warmer now. :huh:
    MoreEpicThanYou: I know why I'm warmer it's because...
    Shotgun: :cringe: Don't even say it.
    MoreEpicThanYou: :lol:
    Alexander: Where's MantaRevan? The frost on my toes is getting cold.

    Snap!

    Everyone: :eekdance::shifty:
    ???: Woah! My screen is frozen over!
    General Olaf: Hurry up with the wood already!
    MantaRevan: Sorry, I was seeing if I could find how to install heating...
    Alexander: Did you find any wood?
    MantaRevan: No, but it's warm in MoreEpicThanYou's house...
    MoreEpicThanYou: :king:
    General Olaf: :rolleyes: Let's just go inside then.

    A few minutes later...

    Alexander: I can feel my nose again!
    MantaRevan: That is snow cool!

    Poof!

    General Olaf: Look at MantaRevan...

    MantaRevan -> :snowcool:

    Alexander & Shotgun: :eek2:

    MoreEpicThanYou walks in...

    MoreEpicThanYou: That was a nice walk.

    MantaRevan's snow melts...

    MantaRevan: Phew...
    Alexander: I'm glad that's over.
    MoreEpicThanYou: What?
    Shotgun: So, MantaRevan, what did you find when you WEREN'T LOOKING FOR WOOD?
    MantaRevan: Well, I found out masonry...



    Alexander: Ooh... The Great Lighthouse...
    Shotgun: The Pyramids...
    General Olaf: Walls...
    MantaRevan: Wall anyway...
    MoreEpicThanYou: My turn: :cringe:
    MantaRevan: :D I videotaped Santa...
    Alexander: Santa?
    MantaRevan: See for yourself...

    The lights go down...
    Topsecret: Wait, there aren't any lights...
    MoreEpicThanYou: Details... :popcorn:

    Spoiler :

    At first it's blurry, but then you can see in the distance...
    :santa2: :rudolf:

    Santa: Ho Ho Ho!



    Alexander: We've gotta go find Santa. I need a copy of my 13th Birthday present.
    General Olaf: What was it?
    Alexander: A coat.

    Will Alexander and Co. find Santa? :xmas: Or will he fly off before they can find him?

    Topsecret: Bye! :wavey:

    Note: I think the updates are gonna have to be shorter!
