With Christmas a few weeks away, Krampus was up with the first light of day. The big monster thought of the little men working in Santa's shop. Once he tried to help but the fat man told him to stop. Krampus wasn't an elf nor good with his hands but Krampus helped charity in ways only he can. In big toy stores all filled with Christmas rush; Krampus encouraged shoppers donate or blood would gush. At Christmas “Toys for Tots” left out a bin, Krampus made sure everyone tossed a couple toys in. The monster didn't talk or say a word, just swished his switch lightly the message clearly heard. A couple of teenagers tried to sneak by they were unhurt mostly, just a blackened eye.
One night Idunn trotted up with an unwrapped toy, the monster cracked a little smile to the girls bounding joy. Her parents hurried off worried Krampus may eat her, but Idunn knew there was no reason to fear. The hulking brute had grown fond of the girl. Idunn and he would talk over the fence all hours of the night, and then she would climb through her window quick as a squirrel. Idunn leaving the beast for her soft warm bed; Krampus to his dog house that didn't cover his head. Idunn's parents wouldn't understand; if they knew these nightly visits would be banded.
The little girl gone, Krampus again enforced the rules. Krampus thought of charity important for the Yule. The store stood on the classy side of town; He didn't target the poor for this Christmas shake down. All had plenty to give or got the whip, it was funny how the richest usually ended with a fat lip.
Krampus looked over toys in the bin, somewhat ambivalent it was hard to read his grin. Too few gifts for the older boys and girl, Christmas wasn't easy for the older orphans of the world. No music players or big kid bikes, but plenty gift for the smallest of tike's. Krampus stalked about the isles, tossing toys into unsuspecting carts, and then instructing shoppers where to donate with a menacing smile. Shoppers complied in fear, buying music players or losing their ears. The monster ordered one suited man to buy up video games or face his wrath. He bought out the store earning the beasts approving Laugh.
Near close Krampus appraised the haul, smiling happily the bins filled all. He could go home his work complete, next year maybe he and Santa couple compete. Many kids would have a happy year, now it was time for Krampus to make the others tremble in fear.
