Rufus and the Angel
Rufus the elf is grumpy the angels won't help decorate the village's tree. He also hides intense interest and burgeoning feelings for one of them, but when Santa presents a special toy for delivery, his hopes are realized at last. More
Rufus the Christmas elf is grumpy over the festive season, because none of the Christmas angels will help him top Santa's tree this Christmas Eve. Their belligerent teasing sets his nerves on edge until one of them asks him to ice-dance on the frozen pond. Shortly after this magical dance routine a random kiss in the snow leaves Rufus hankering for the tangible affections of an angel he has secretly admired for some time--one who appears almost as impossible to capture and hold as the thistledown riding the twilight breeze. While Rufus considers his options, Santa asks him to deliver a remarkable old toy to a dying hospital patient. This toy has a special significance, clouded in mystery, and only his favorite angel Thadeus can reveal its hidden secrets. With a little bit of time travel, Rufus is taken back to a day long past and shown by Thadeus why the Christmas gift is so important, and why too, Rufus has special relevance to his favored Christmas angel.
