Everyone was speechless. The guests stared at the open door, the one Elsa had fled through and the blizzard that was already raging out there.
"But.... but it's summer..." One dignitary mumbled.
Anna started to feel really cold. Either Elsa's curse was actually coming true, or it's just the wind from the blizzard. But if the curse does come true, Anna needs to reverse it. She ran over to the broken pieces of the crown and gathered them in her skirt. She counted the pieces. Eight. The crown was in 8 pieces.
Anna knew there was only one solution. She had to travel to the magical trolls that she had heard in only ancient Norwegian legends. According to the stories, the trolls dwelled deep in the mountains, and no one had ever met them and returned. Many people have tried to find them, but never returned from the journey. The trolls themselves are not dangerous, but the journey to and fro is. But the trolls could fix anything. From sickness to broken things, the trolls can fix it all. Which is why Anna needs to find them.
She hurried out of the hall to her room, so she can change into warmer clothes and find a bag to put the pieces of the crown in. After she was done, she ran out of her room with her bag slung over her shoulder. She needed to get started on the journey fast, she only had 3 days. As she rounded a corner in the hall, she bumped into someone and fell to the ground.
"Hey! Watch-" she said, but then stopped when she saw who it was.
"I'm so sorry, let me help you!" he held out his hand.
Anna smiled "Hans," she said.
"I'm sorry, milady. I should have been looking where I was going."
"No, no, it's okay. I wasn't looking where I was going. But I was in a hurry, and I still am. Excuse me," Anna tried to walk around Hans, but he stopped her.
"Where are you going? Can I help?"
Anna smiled and put a mittened hand on Hans' arm. Hans had came to the castle two years ago as a new captain of the guards. He was really good on his job, although that in itself was a miracle considering how much time he spends with the princess chatting and laughing. Anna would say they were in love, but she wasn't quite sure. One thing she did know was that Hans had made her a lot less lonely.
"It's okay, Hans! I can do this. I'll be back in 3 days."
"Are you sure you'll be alright? You're going to fix the crown, aren't you?" Hans asked.
"Yeah, or else I would die, you know." Anna gave him a smile and waved goodbye. "Bye!" she turned and ran out of the hall and out of the castle.
Elsa continued up the mountain. She had run from Arendelle and found a nice, distant and isolated mountain to seek shelter in. She wasn't afraid anymore, not confused anymore. She knew what she was doing for the first time, and that was that she's never going back to that crap of a life, locked in her room. Out here, she was free! She could do whatever she wants! Elsa waved her hand and a flurry of snowflakes burst from her hand. Elsa laughed and continued to play with her snow. To be honest, she didn't really care that she wasn't going to be queen after all. She was just mad and upset before, and cursed her sister. Elsa felt a little bad for cursing Anna, but Elsa figured she deserved it for all those years of pestering her.
Elsa waved her hand and a flurry of snowflakes burst from her hand.
Elsa felt the gown and hairstyle she has right now didn't feel right. So she created a new shimmering gown of ice and fixed her hair and a long braid down her shoulder. Much better. She needed shelter up here in the mountains, so she built an ice castle out of her powers. She sung as she did so, she loved singing. She made the song up as she went, but was still pretty proud of it.
When she was done building the castle, she slammed the door and walked up the stairs she had put in the middle of her castle. She wasn't sure what to do
, she was done everything she could think of.
Suddenly, a large shadow loomed beside her. Elsa gasped and took a few steps back. Where had she seen it before?
The shadow came closer, and Elsa's eyes widened. No, it can't be....
she thought. But when it spoke, she knew it was the same stranger who had given her her powers.
"Elsa," it began.
"You!" Elsa walked towards it until she was almost right in front of it "Why did you give me the powers? I never asked for them!"
"But you seem to be having fun with it," it said.
"I would be having more fun if I didn't have it!"
"That's not the point," the shadow replied "we gave you the powers for a reason."
"Who is 'we'?" Elsa asked.
The stranger continued as if it hadn't heard her question. "You were chosen, because we knew you would be able to carry out the purpose well."
"What are you talking about?" Elsa took a step backward. This shadow is not reliable.
"We had a reason to give you the powers, out of all the people we could have chosen. We didn't tell you the reason, of course, we wanted to see if you could figure it out on your own. But you couldn't, which is why I have come to you right now." the shadow advanced towards Elsa.
"Okay, what are you trying to tell me?" Elsa wanted to back up, but she couldn't move for some reason.
"The purpose of your powers."
