Drabble: Christmas Concert

Title: Christmas Concert (100 words)
Author: race_track
Date: 12/22/08
Universe: Gotham Newsies
Challenge: #3, 'Christmas'


It's up to Jack to pick the songs the newsboys perform in their annual Christmas concert. Even if it's a little corny, the guys will sing the stuff Jack chooses and learn the intricate routines.

A happy Jack is a beautiful thing.

The concert tips are a big help at Christmastime. With a few extra bucks, the guys can even exchange small gifts. This, plus the dinner and warm gloves or scarves provided by the Wayne Foundation, make for a festival holiday.

Jack says Christmas is for people like the newsies, who don't have much.

Jack is almost always right.

This is an EXCELLENT drabble. I love the sentiments and the way you've expressed them.

Very powerful for only 100 words.

Thanks for sharing. This was a perfect read on Christmas Eve.
