RotG - Shadows Nipping At Your Nose - 3There on the ice stood the Nightmare King himself, Pitch Black. He moved as silently as a shadow, stepping over to hole in the ice. At the edges it was starting to freeze over again. Everything had gone according to his plan. Though the boy's belief in the Boogeyman was questionable at best, Pitch had been able to worm his way into his frightened head. It only took a touch of fear, a few seconds of hesitation for the plan to work. The boy wouldn't be changed as the Man in the Moon had planned, but the girl would receive the powers instead.Up above Pitch, the Moon hung in the sky, seemingly full with discontent, worry even. A self-satisfied laugh rang through across the lake's frozen water as Pitch turned his eyes skyward. "Don't look at me like that, old friend," he said jovially. "You have your Guardians, and what have I? Barely anything left. I am alone, and I will tolerate that no longer. Besides..." Pitch looked down through the hole in the ice and readied himself for what would c
RotG - Shadows Nipping At Your Nose - 2When the tragedy struck Burgess, the moon was hanging in the sky on the other side of the world. It slowly made its way back to the New England colonies, and something darker lurked in the shadows that even the moonlight couldn't penetrate.Something has gone wrong. What has happened? The powers over Winter have already begun to take their effect on...the boy. But this is not so. Jackson Overland lives. Yet there is the hole in the ice. If not Jackson Overland, then who has been claimed by the Winter?No. This cannot be. The girl. This is not right. The girl cannot fulfill the destiny that was meant for her brother. It will not work this way. And she is just a child, much younger than can handle this burden. Jack Frost was always meant to exist. Jack Frost must exist but he cannot while Jackson Overland still lives. And while this girl possesses the powers intended for her brother, there can be no Jack Frost anyway.This must be remedied as soon as possible. But how? And besi
RotG - A Bitter Frost - 22There was silence in the little clearing for a few minutes. We didn't know what to do. North was slumped over, using his swords to hold himself up. Bunny had slumped over again and this time I knew he was crying. I couldn't blame him. It was taking all my effort not to cry either. I touched down, the grass soft on my feet and the sun warm on my back. Springtime still made the forest beautiful around us, but there was no happiness.I looked around but I didn't really register any of the bright and vibrant colors. I knew that what I was feeling couldn't be anything compared to what Bunny was going through but it still hurt. My mind replayed the images of Jack playing with Sophie. His smile, his sincerity, his sweetness... the way he had looked at me. For a little while, I had gotten the old Jack, my Jack back. Everything had been... so much better, in those few minutes than it had been in almost three hundred years. But now...I was angry at Jack for not being there to fight against the
RotG - A Bitter Frost - 21North and I sat next to Bunny and we all caught our breath after all of the excitement. It would be a while before the eggs made it to the surface and we couldn't exactly hunt for Pitch so all there was to do now was wait. That was definitely ok with us. It was nice to have a little while just to sit down and recover. The loss of Sandy still weighed heavily on my mind and I'm sure it was in North and Bunny's thoughts too, but I tried to let the thoughts slip away as I looked out over the beautiful flowers and greenery."That was good work," North said, patting Bunny on the back."Thanks, mate," Bunny said with a smile as we watched the rest of the eggs head off toward their tunnels. "This'll get the kids believing again. Pitch won't stand a chance against all the happiness when they start finding the eggs." This was the happiest I'd seen Bunny in a long time."I'm glad Easter's going to go so well," I said, resting a hand on Bunny's shoulder."Ah, but that's not the only thing go
RotG - A Bitter Frost - 20It was a quick journey through Bunny's tunnels but I knew we must've gone a long way to get all the way from the North Pole to the Warren. Bunny had told me about it but I'd never been there before. As we all tumbled out into the open space, I flitted into the air immediately to avoid being caught up between North and Jack and the two yetis who had apparently come along with us. The yetis fell out on their backs along with North and an elf tumbled out of the tunnel too, bouncing off of North's belly. We all chuckled a bit as we caught our breath and as North sat up he said, "'Buckle up,'" with a laugh, "Is very funny."We all turned to Bunny and with a proud smile, he said, "Welcome to the Warren." I shook off the slight dizziness from the journey through the tunnels and looked around, gasping at how beautiful it was. The land was curved with rocks and hills and everything was covered with layers of green moss. Flowers grew everywhere, hundreds and hundreds of them: poppies, lilacs, bl
