Finally you found the Snow Maiden in the meadow. She immediately began to shout: how can you walk arm-in-arm with the Snow Queen, with this pepper shaker! The Snow Queen immediately left, and you answered the Snow Maiden in the same tone: how could you become the bride of Santa Claus! In the end, you made up, but each remained unconvinced.
At 11 pm you and the Snow Maiden returned to your room. The door was open - apparently you had forgotten to lock it. The granddaughter went to her room. You went to bed, but sleep did not come. Your room is a walk-through, and if the Snow Maiden went out, you would have noticed it.
At 12 am, The Brownie burst in with the message that Santa Claus was frozen, and his bag of gifts was stolen! You immediately started getting dressed, while the Brownie was waking the rest up ... and only then did you remember about your staff. Fortunately, you didn't have to look for it for a long time - the staff was in your room near the door.
