A few minutes later, all four boys found the energy to stand. They were walking back to Halloween Town when who should they find waiting for them but good old Santa Claus, having regained his red and white sleigh.
"Whew!" said the jolly old elf as Ed proceeded to pet the reindeer. "For a moment there, I thought I was too late. But I managed to deliver the presents in time!"
"Awesome!" said Eddy.
Jack, however, didn't seem happy from the good news. He stepped forward. "I'm so. . ." he began. Then he sighed. "Forgive me . . . for causing you trouble again."
Eddy and Double D groaned. How the heck could Jack still be feeling guilty?
"No, Jack," said Santa. "This time I owe you my gratitude. Thank you for saving my life!"
Jack's face lit up when he heard this. He gave a big grin as he and the Eds waved at the departing Santa.
"You see, Jack?" Eddy asked. "Everything worked out in the end. You gotta start thinking more positive, Pumpkin King!"
At this, Jack started laughing.
