Tink, Wink, and Nudge

"Hey, Tinkerbell!" Nudge catcalled.
"Stop calling ME THAT!" Tink's glow turned red and she hovered above her twin Wink.
"It's the only way I can tell you apart! You two look alike."
The truth was, Wink was a cerulean blue and rather stout, not to mention male, while Tink was green, lithe, and female. Nudge just had to push others' buttons. Tink punched him in the arm, but he was so portly, it only wobbled like jelly. He giggled. The three had been friends since they were rung into being.
Tink ducked back down behind the plastic holly leaf and calmed her red light. The stakeout had only just started and already she'd had enough of the two boys. "Shh."
If a fairy wasn't vigilant, they'd miss their only opportunity to ask for one wish from the greatest magical being of all time.
The mantle clock clicked midnight. There was a speck of sparkle on the hearth below. Tink jumped from behind the holly and yelled, "SANTA!"
An old elf turned his bearded face in shock, frozen in mid-appear, then grinned in relief.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

I wonder what Tink would wish for?

I really like your choice of "cerulean" as I think it is a vastly underused shade of blue. :-)
A cute read indeed! :-D
