It was after midnight when fourteen-year-old Leon was dropped off at his house by the choir master. He had been scheduled to be home two hours before but there had been accident which closed the bridge and then more delays from the backed up traffic and the snow. He had called home so he wasn't in any trouble and his parents didn't have anything to worry about.
He trudged through the snow covered path to his front door knowing that he would have to spend a couple of hours on Christmas morning shoveling the stuff. He carefully opened and closed the door quietly so as not to wake his parents nor his eight-year-old kid brother Donny. It would help prove that he was growing up if they did not hear him come in after all those years of being yelled at not to slam the door.
The house should have been absolutely quiet with everyone asleep in their beds but it wasn't. He heard soft sobbing from the family room and in the dim light from hall lamp his mother had left on he saw Donny in front of the tree. He was sobbing. He was holding his stocking in one hand and something dark as pitch in the other.
Obviously, something was very wrong. "Hey, Squirt, what's the matter?"
"THIS!" said the boy holding up a lump of coal. "I ain't getting nothing for Christmas. This was in my Stocking and nothing under the tree. You got stuff but nothing for me." He ran to his big brother and grabbed him in a death grip tight bear hug. After a while he confessed that he had been naughty – well just little not that much but… He couldn't finish but broke into tears again.© YLeeCoyote
"There must be some mistake. Santa's computers must have messed up. I know you got spanked regular and that clears the slate."
"Er, er, a couple of times I didn't get spanked." sobbed the boy.
"There still time to fix things, Donny. There are several hours until dawn when Santa quits for the year. I could spank you then he would reconsider. I'm pretty sure it would work. We wouldn't even have to tell Mommy and Daddy."
"Really?" asked the boy incredulously and brightening instantly. "There's a second chance?"
"Of course. You hear of how things work out at the last minutes when the 'rents are listening to the news." He knew that he had a present for his brother, that he could scrounge up some candy and those movie tickets for the new sold out animation flick. He would just have break his date with Cindy.
"You would do that."
"Of course, I can't have my little brother crying on Christmas."
Leon sat on the couch and asked his brother to give him the stocking and the coal. "We'll make sure the magic works by using this from Santa." he explained as he dropped the coal into the Stocking.
Donny dropped his pj's bottoms and got over his brother lap and bravely said: "Ready."
Leon gave him a few hand spanks and then a whole mess with the coal stuffed stocking. Soon the boy was crying. Then the hugs. "There it's all over and now off to bed before Santa catches you and you're in trouble again."
Donny turned at the door and said: "You're the bestest brother in the whole world. I love you." Before happily scampering off to bed his bottom bright red.
Leon emptied the stocking and refilled it with some candy from the kitchen and the tickets for the movie. Then he put the present he had brought the week before under the tree. After he had washed up he went to bed. It was only a few minutes before Donny climbed in with him.
There was no need for words and Leon just protectively cuddled his little brother.

In the morning there were several presents for Donny besides those Leon had given him. Leon wasn't sure anymore about the existence of a certain fat guy. However, he was absolutely sure that his precious little brother was happy and there wasn't anything more important than that in the entire universe.
