The Secret word is: Snickerdoodle
The snickerdoodles were still warm on the counter when he went in. The house was silent. It was decorated for the season but he didn’t even hear any holiday music. His hand slipped to the guard on his gun as he closed the door quietly. On a frosted pane of window, there was a heart drawn by a finger. Heavy boots carried him into the living room and he peered around it. In the leather seat, legs crossed and covered in green stockings, dressed in a naughty santa outfit, she sat. Mistletoe danced off her hat.
“Merry Christmas, baby.”
