Recorded conversation between agent Emma Ström and individual identified as Snowblossom Smith in Mexico City, on December 15, 2013 at approximately 20:00.
Agent Ström: "Are you here?"
Snowblossom Smith: "I'm here."
Ström: "I don't see you."
Smith: "I can't let you see me. Not right now. Also, please don't use my name."
Ström: "I understand. Why did you agree to meet with me?"
Smith: "I need help. Information. Does Interpol have a red notice on me?"
Ström: "Not yet, but we're getting a lot of pressure. What can you tell me about the disappearances?"
Ström: "No games. We know you arrived in Belize last Tuesday. On Wednesday night, twenty-eight children disappeared. They were all under the age of twelve, and they were all in the same suburb - about three square blocks."
Smith: "...Were any children left behind?"
Ström: "About one in five. No apparent pattern."
Smith: "Dear God."
Ström: "What happened?"
Smith: [No response.]
Ström: "Tell me what you know. I can't help you if you don't-"
Smith: "He set the Krampus after me. I thought it was the reindeer, but they were just scouts. He sent the Krampus after me. I was gone. I heard the clicking on the rooftops again, and I left. And when the Krampus couldn't find me, it took the children instead."
Ström: "So the children..."
Smith: "You won't see them again. After all this time, the Krampus must have been starving."
Ström: "If you'll come with me..."
Smith: "I can't. I wouldn't last a day, no matter what you did to protect me."
Ström: "The more we know..."
Smith: "...Then find out what's happening up north. The Krampus hasn't been loosed in centuries. It's too dangerous, too hard to control. Why would he risk that? I'm just a renegade elf. I don't have the answers you need."
Ström: "You have more than I do. ...You can find me if you change your mind?"
Smith: "If I come up with anything solid enough to bring him down, you'll be the first to know."
