Once upon a time,
there was a little redhead girl,
living in the great city of London,
who loved watches!
She found their mechanism
the most fascinating thing in the world
and so decided to spend the rest of her life
creating the most beautiful watch ever!
She started collecting contacts, coils, stems and circuits
and kept them all in a secret box under her pillow.
Until one day
that her house
was caught into fires and she was forced to evacuate her room
so quick, that she didn't have the time to collect her box.
* * *
just on time for Christmas she dreamed of Santa Claus,
asking her what would she like for Christmas.
my box , she whispered, that is all I want for Christmas...

On Christmas eve,
the city was covered into lights and
people were visiting the Christmas markets,
watching the pantomimes
and buying mulled wine.
It was the happiest day of the year!
The little girl slept
while listening to the carols tunes
and dreamed of her lost secret box.
The next day,
the city was white,
covered with a thick layer of snow,
but that was not the reason why the little girl was smiling.
Under the tree there were Christmas presents.
Boxes wrapped in colourful paper,
writing the name of the recipient on one side.
Her box was the tiniest one,
my secret box!
Little did she know though..
When she opened her present,
her eyes lightened
and her smile was as wide as her face.
There in her tiny box,
was laying the most beautiful watch,
she had ever imagined!
A white, elegant watch,
even better than the one she was dreaming to make herself.
Santa Claus made her dream come true.
he didn't offer her the lost secret box,
but something way better,
the most beautiful watch ever made!
