Fire and Ice Chapter 16: Just In Case, a frozen fanfic | FanFiction

“Thanks! And how are you this evening, Dimitri?”

“Swell!” he said again, and Elsa chuckled to herself. “So swell, in fact, that I think it’s time for a dance. Shall we?”

Instead of gesturing to his wife, Dimitri offered a hand to Anna to the surprise of both sisters. Anna furrowed her brow, glancing at Tatyana to gauge her reaction to her tipsy husband’s innocent advance. Elsa, too, eyed the latter’s face. Tatyana, however, was grinning from ear to ear and slightly waving her hand.

“Go for it!” she laughed. “I’m not one for dancing, especially not now!”

Anna giggled. “Alright, then!”

As Dimitri took Anna by the hand and led her to the dance floor, Elsa turned to Tatyana with an inquisitive look on her face.

“You don’t mind Dimitri dancing with Anna?” she inquired. “I thought you liked to dance?”

“Oh, I do,” Tatyana declared, “just not with a big belly! Besides, he’d been planning to dance with Anna this evening.”

“Why?”

Tatyana smirked. “Because if she dances with Dimitri, it won’t seem so suspicious to everyone else if she dances with Kristoff tonight, too.”

It’s an Elsa chapter. Sorry. You all know I’m not good with Elsa lol. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy it. :)

Warning: this chapter addresses Anna’s emotional abuse.

“I can show you the world,
shining, shimmering, splendid,
tell me, my queen, now when did 
you last let your heart decide?
I can open your eyes,
take you wonder by wonder,
over, sideways and under
on an icy dragon ride”

Scene from chapter 9 of “In the service of the Queen” by wolfspirit93, if you read it, then you know that Aladdin song is perfect, although with some changesahahaha!!!

Advent Calendar December 3rd- Little Kicks

                Kristoff’s grin was broad as he lay in bed beside his wife. His hands rested lightly on her swollen tummy as they talked lazily about their day. All was dark and quiet in Arendelle with most of its inhabitants having gone to bed hours ago. Tonight was an ordinary night for them, but an extraordinary magical one for the royal couple.

                “Elsa wouldn’t let me do anything today because of ‘my condition’.” Anna laughed, “She keeps calling it that and worrying over me like a mother hen. I know she means well, but I hate doing nothing and honestly I just have this weird feeling like I want to wash everything.”

                Kristoff chuckled in return, “You’re nesting Anna, and you know Elsa is just worried about you and the baby.”

                “I know, but I don’t know if I can take another four months like this.” Anna was currently twenty weeks into her pregnancy and thanks to her small frame it was rather easily noticeable.  From the moment that she had begun to show Elsa would not allow her to do single thing or even lift a finger. Anna, of course appreciated her sister’s love and care, but it was getting difficult to be so restricted in her life.

                “Want me to talk to her?” Kristoff asked as he leaned in to Anna’s face to kiss her forehead lightly. He and Elsa tended to have an open forum of communication when it came to Anna and the pair had an unspoken agreement to assist the red head in any way possible when they could. That was how their relationship worked, through similar personalities and a mutual love of Arendelle’s one and only Princess.

                She sighed softly and ran a hand through Kristoff’s messy blond hair, “No I think I can handle it. She thinks she’s helping and I don’t want to discourage her. After all despite the stress it’s probably put on her, this whole experience seems to be good for her.”

                Anna stretched out a bit, but didn’t move so much to shift Kristoff’s hand off her baby bump. She liked it when he rested his hand on her like that, it was comforting and relaxing. It reminded her that he was just as excited about their bun in the oven as she was.

                “If you say so.” He replied, yawning slightly in exhaustion. He had been working with the palace guards all day, assisting them with some trivial matter that was now required of him as the consort of the Princess of Arendelle, or more simply put, a Prince. He never imagined in a million years holding that title, and as such he never referred to himself as a Prince. Being someone who was raised in the mountains by trolls the entire thought of royal titles seemed far too pompous to him. He was simply Kristoff Bjorgman, an ice harvester who happened to fall in love with and marry a Princess. He had honestly given thought once or twice to the fact that if anyone had told him even two years ago that he would be married to the Princess of Arendelle and would be expecting a child with her, he would have laughed in their face and taken away the tankard of whatever they had been drinking. He would have never believed that he would be where he was today.

                “What do you think?” Anna said expectantly, pulling Kristoff out of his own thoughts.

                “About what?” He asked, missing the first part of whatever she had said due to his intent focus on his thought process.

                “About the name Sofia for a girl and Peter for a boy?”

                Kristoff mulled this over in his mind for a moment. “I like Peter, but maybe Emilie for a girl?” He smiled softly before adding, “I was told once that my mother’s name was Emilie.”

                Anna smiled for a moment, Kristoff had never mentioned that to her before. She was sure that it had merely slipped his mind or he had his reasons for not telling her about it at the time, but it brought a smile to Anna’s face to hear it. She knew Kristoff knew little to nothing of his parents except for the fact that they had passed on when he was very small. “Emilie is a beautiful name.”

                Kristoff nearly jumped a mile, seconds after Anna spoke. “Did you feel that?” He asked wide eyed and mouth agape.

                Anna smiled lightly, “I think someone likes their name.” The baby had kicked, Anna had thought she felt it lightly earlier, but with this being her first child she had been unsure. This time however it was obvious to her, and she was beyond happy that Kristoff had felt it too.

                “She… he… it kicked.” Kristoff said, in absolute awe, “Our baby kicked Anna.” She was excited, but he was more in awe than she was. In fact he was acting quite like a kid in a candy store. He rested his hands again on her tummy before shifting to kiss it.

                Anna smiled, “Elsa is going to freak out in the morning when I tell her.” After this she felt the need to add, “A good freak out that is. She’s been asking me for weeks if they baby has kicked yet. She’s been reading pregnancy and parenting books behind my back, I know it!”

                Kristoff laughed a bit, “I’m sure she’ll be absolutely thrilled.” He knew that he was at the very least.

                “Maybe I shouldn’t wait until morning.” Anna said, her happy smile suddenly transforming into a wicked grin. “Maybe I should go tell her right now.”

                Kristoff knew that this was some sort of evil payback on Anna’s part, waking her sister as vengeance for her helicopter sistering.  Yet despite this he did not attempt to talk her down. Usually he was the only thing standing between Anna and a ridiculous idea, but in this case he was standing aside, and was actually joining up to go with her. If Anna was happy, he was happy. And of course the snow queen would be annoyed at being awoken, but not for long when she realized the reason behind it.

                Anna hopped out of bed immediately after the idea hit her, “Let’s go!” She said as she headed for the door.

                “Maybe you’ll want to put on some clothes first?” Kristoff said to her just before she turned the door handle. He might be going along with her on this crazy scheme, but he still would be her voice of reason.

                After they were both adequately dressed the duo went off to awake the Queen and subsequently spent an hour in the library touching Anna’s tummy to feel the kicks of the little royal to be.

Together They Keep Warm - a Kristanna fic

This is for the amazing ominouscloudsofarendelle, because 1) I realized that I’ve never dedicated a fic to her and that is a crime because she was my very first follower and first mutual and she is my awesome fandom sister and she deserves all the dedications and 2) she was both a super helpful beta reader and she put up with a solid 24 hours of me fussing and hemming about what to call this fic and she never told me to shut up once <3 True patience! So LM this is for you (it was going to be anyway but now it REALLY is <3)

Together They Keep Warm

pairing: Kristanna

rated: T

words: 4967

“…if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone?” Ecclesiastes 4:11 [ESV]

The broken rhythm of a knock at the door startled Kristoff so much that he nearly sliced open his own thumb. Instead he gouged a deep scratch into what had been a promising carving of a leaping hare. Kristoff scowled, then shook his head and tossed the half-shaped block of wood into the fireplace. The knock came again and he took the knife with him as he went to answer it. It might be another harvester or a hunter, looking for shelter from the rain that was pummeling the mountain—that sort of invasion was annoying enough, but it was more welcome than most of the alternatives. Kristoff lifted the heavy crossbar and let the door open a crack, looking out warily for bandits or other unsavory figures.

Abuse and Abusive Themes in r9kElsa Is Suffering

It has not been easy to write this.

Not just because of FictionPress.com’s delightfully arcane restrictions on copying and pasting.

My soul feels lighter though.

My first impression of r9kElsa Is Suffering – an incestuous AU slashfic of Frozen – accompanied a sincere heart-wrenching feeling. The first chapter reads like a boxing glove to the face; the “wanna build a snowman” of modern lonely shut-ins. It spoke to me. It’s a bit much to unpack all at once, and so I haven’t written anything like a comprehensive review or analysis. Instead, I am interested in writing some about the unspoken assumptions, and the themes of abuse in r9kElsa Is Suffering, henceforth shortened to “the fanfic,” or some variation thereof, as the mood strikes me.

Miss Arendal (Nursery Teacher AU) Chapter 1

So this is the AU I randomly came up with this evening. I hope everyone enjoys it and please let me know what you think! I am from the UK by the way and this is all based on a nursery I worked in last year. It was connected to a school.

Words: 1560
Rating: T (eventually)
Summary: 
Nursery Teacher AU. Anna is a newly qualified nursery teacher in a British school. When one of the children in her class starts acting up, it leads to a chance encounter with the child’s adoptive older brother.

———–

“Okay kids, remember, toys must go back once you’ve finished playing with them. We don’t want a repeat of yesterday!”

“Yes Miss Arendal” the class replied, jumping to their feet and scurrying off.

Anna couldn’t deny she was exhausted. She had been up until the early hours of the morning finishing a policy document for her nursery class. Being newly qualified was hard, she decided, she wasn’t as practiced at this than other teachers. Gerda, the classroom assistant had been here for years. She sympathised with Anna more so than the other teachers who simply waved a hand and said “You’ll learn”.

“Here, Anna” Gerda said, approaching her at that moment with a steaming mug of hot chocolate.

“Mmm, thanks Gerda!” Anna said taking a sip and sitting back in her chair, watching her class at free play before yawning widely.

“Were you up all night with that blasted paperwork again?”

“Only until two this time!” Anna told her.

“Still far too long” Gerda said “How did you even manage to get up this morning?”

“My sister”

Elsa had woken her up bright and early with pancakes before hurrying out to work herself. She really owed her sister an awful lot. Letting her move in with her after university like that was sweet enough but she always made sure Anna was fed and watered before she left the house and when she came home too.

“She’s a good one that sister of yours” Gerda told her.

“I know, I wish she wouldn’t work herself too hard”

“What is it she does?”

“She’s a graphic designer. Currently she’s working on the new shopping centre in town. It’s a lot of work for her and…”

“AHHHHHH” A tiny voice squealed across the room from the dressing up corner.

Anna jumped up to see Lizzie screeching at the top of her lungs, a police helmet clutched under her left arm and Sven’s teeth clamped around her right.

“SVEN! STOP THAT AT ONCE!” Gerda cried as she and Anna hurried over. Gerda took hold of Lizzie and took her to the toilets to dry her eyes while Anna grabbed Sven’s hand and led him over to sit on the carpet while she knelt in front of him. It wasn’t the first time he’d been in trouble. She’d only been here two months and he was the first name she learnt in her class, mainly from having to shout it at the top of her lungs across the classroom after he had snatched from, bitten, hit or kicked another of his classmates.

“Sven” Anna sighed “We talked about the biting last week. It’s not nice.”

Sven glared at the floor, his face screwed up and brown hair falling into his face so Anna couldn’t see him. Anna slumped, laying on her front and looked up at Sven from the floor so she could see him. He smiled slightly at his teacher before remembering that he was supposed to be angry and he shuffled away from her slightly

“Why did you bite her?” Anna asked, moving again so she was looking up at him.

“She said I wasn’t allowed to play the policeman game”

“That’s not really a great reason to bite her, Pal” Anna said.

“She said it was because her daddy’s a policeman and I don’t have a real daddy so I couldn’t play”

“Ah” Anna said, sitting up. She still wasn’t entirely sure how to deal with this problem. Sven had recently been adopted in the summer by a local family after ending up in the foster system as a baby. She thought for a moment, looking down at the tiny three year old in front of her, sat cross legged and staring so hard at the floor that he was in danger of burning a hole into the carpet, and decided to give him the truth.

“You know, Sven, I don’t have a daddy either”

Sven looked up at her then.

“Why?” he asked

“Well, he died when I was little. I just had my sister. It was hard sometimes but we never bit people” Anna told him, feeling a dull twinge in her chest as she looked into the little boys eyes and saw the same look of confusion and anger that had been present in her eyes for so many of her teenage years. She pulled him into her lap and he cuddled into her as she gave him a big hug.

“But you need to remember Bulda and Cliff love you so very much and they’re going to look after you, just like they have with all your new brothers and sisters”

Sven didn’t reply, just clutched to Anna. She lifted him and carried him back to her seat where they sat in silence as she held him close.

“You know” she whispered after a while “I am going to have to tell Bulda about this. We made that deal after you bit James”

“She’s not picking me up” he told her “my brother is”

“Okay well I’ll have to mention it to him, alright?”

Sven shrugged against her shoulder and was quiet again until it was time for dinner.

“What did Sven say?” Gerda asked when the class had been dismissed for lunch.

“I think he’s struggling with the adoption” Anna said.

“The poor mite” Gerda sighed “he needs to stop the biting though”

“I know; I’m going to mention it to his brother when he picks him up this afternoon”.

She couldn’t be certain but it sounded like Gerda chuckled.

Home time came soon enough and the children gathered their coats. Parents were already waiting in the playground so Anna opened the door and began dismissing her class.

“Sven, will you please tell your brother I need to speak with him before you go?”

Sven nodded and hurried out into the sea of grown-ups. The final members of the class filed out and Anna turned back to pick up some dropped wellington boots when there was a voice behind her.

“Miss Arendal? Sven said you wanted to speak to me?”

Anna stood straight and turned to face the voice coming from the doorway. She froze and gazed up at the tall, muscular blonde, holding a Thomas the Tank Engine backpack and the hand of tiny little Sven. His black tee shirt was tight and outlined an impressive chest and his jeans were low enough that the waist band of his boxer shorts was just visible. His blonde hair fell into large, chocolate coloured eyes which stared back in to her own blue ones. She continued to stare at those eyes and began to feel as though she was floating.

“Miss Arendal?” he asked again, frowning slightly.

“Mmm? Oh! Yes! I, um, yes” she stammered, blushing furiously “It’s about Sven. We caught him biting again today. We’ve given him plenty of chances, but I did say last time I would have to report home if it happened again”

The blonde’s eyebrows furrowed and he sighed, before crouching to look Sven in the eye.

“Is this true, buddy?” he asked.

Sven nodded, looking at the floor again.

“We talked about this after you bit Melody in the garden, it can’t happen. I think you need to apologise to Miss Arendal, she doesn’t need to deal with you biting people; she already has a lot to do”

“I’m sorry Miss Arendal” Sven mumbled.

“It’s okay, sweetheart” Anna said crouching too “but will you promise no more biting?”

“Yes” Sven replied.

“Good” she said

“Okay, bud, do you wanna head to the car? Your sisters already waiting for you”

Sven hurried off without another word leaving Anna alone with the blonde.

“I’m really sorry about this” the blonde said “he’s just taking some time to settle, his last place was pretty rough”

“I totally understand” Anna told him.

“He doesn’t really listen to my parents at the minute. He’s still testing them. He seems to be doing okay with me though. Actually…” the blonde fished in the back pocket of his jeans and pulled out a crumpled receipt, smoothing it out slightly before picking up a red crayon from the side and scrawling on the scrap of paper “this is my number. I know you have my parent’s number on the contact sheet but I’m working nearby at the minute so if you have any problems during the day, give me a ring and I’ll come and talk to him”

“Thank you” Anna said, taking the paper and trying not to drown in those brown eyes again.

“Well I’d better get him home”

“Of course”

“I’ll see you around Miss Arendal”

“Anna” she blurted before she could stop herself.

He smiled slightly and her stomach did a backflip. She felt her cheeks glowing and wished there was a human shape hole in the floor she could step in to and disappear.

“I’m Kristoff” he told her “well, see you!”

He left and Anna remained stood staring at the doorway for another five minutes before Gerda entered.

“Anna? Are you okay?” she asked, snapping Anna from her trance.

“Yes, I’m fine. I, uh, just talked to Sven’s brother”

“I’m guessing by that expression it was the blonde”

Anna nodded.

“You might want to splash your face with cold water, girl. I can feel the heat all the way over here” Gerda laughed.

I chose this title because I was listening to Dido’s song and it fits perfectly!
Okay, this is the coloured version of the WIP I did the last week. The author of the fan fiction “In the service of the Queen” made me a huge, amazing, wonderful, I cannot find words, surprise by incorporating my fan art in the end of chapter 16 !!!!

I swear, when I was reading and suddenly I recognised my fan art, I started to jump around the living room (and luckly I was alone at home XD) like an idiot…  but I was and still I am sooooooo happy!!!!!!!!!!  I think I will never stop to thank you, Rohad, for your story and this present! Enjoy!!!!

Hey, this is my first frozen elsanna fan art!  I am so happy, I had several fangirl attacks while I was drawing it XD (Roses of Arendelle is a crossover after all)

I think it took me more time colouring the grass than the whole drawing XD but who knows me knows also that I am a details addicted person. I loved doing the forest on the fjord’s mountains and the sea and Frost’s expression: you smug adorable lizard!!

Secrets Shared: A Kristoff X Anna Frozen Fanfiction

                “What do you know about love?” Kristoff asked with a chuckle as he raised a single eyebrow at the red head across from him. She was leaning on a tree across from the one he was currently resting his weight on. “You tried to marry a man the day you met him.”

                Anna’s face was almost as red as her hair as she turned her face away. He always picked on her but this time it hurt. She didn’t like to think about Hans, their unofficial engagement and how he had left her for dead. She knew it was her own fault for opening her own heart so recklessly to him. She had learned from her mistake the hard way and though she knew Kristoff was only bringing it up in jest, she felt hurt. “That was over a year ago. I’ve grown up a lot since then.”

Her tone was flat and Kristoff knew he had struck a nerve. He silently bemoaned his insensitivity, hating to see the hurt in her eyes as she turned away from him. He hadn’t thought about what he was saying up until after the phrase was past his lips. He knew better than to bring up the past, after all he had heard in hushed whispers that she still woke up screaming from her nightmares about the cold. It was all that he and Elsa could do to get her to leave her chamber in the winter. Slowly but surely she was getting better about it, but a cold and bitter wind or a locked door still terrified her. He stood up straight and marched over to her in silence. He grabbed her hand and held it as tightly as he dared as he spoke to her.

“Anna… I’m sorry I didn’t think…” He sighed and ran his thumb over her knuckles absentmindedly. After the first kiss they had shared he often did such things without thought. They had become very close in the time since the summer’s winter’s end. He sighed lightly, “Tell me more about him.”

Anna turned her head and looked to the man who currently occupied the space beside her. She knew he hadn’t meant to hurt her feelings and now that he was grasping her hand she felt some of the pain in her heart melt away. She slid down the tree and onto the ground suddenly, she wanted to sit in the rich, natural pine needle mulch beneath the tree.

Kristoff followed her down a moment later never releasing her hand from his. His focus was on her and her only. He would be careful now. He would not hurt her again.

“Well…” Anna began as she leaned off the tree and into him, “He’s kind and strong, but he has a soft side. I won’t tell you his last name, but I know he wears size twelve boots, his favorite food is carrots and his best friend’s name certainly isn’t John.” She blushed recalling a slightly more pleasant past experience.

“Sounds like you’ve got a crush on Sven.” He joked pointing to a not so far off clearing where the reindeer in question was playing with Olaf.

Anna laughed and smiled. She liked it when he teased her the way he was currently. He made her happy. “Close, but not quite.” She joked back sticking her tongue out at him. “Plus Sven doesn’t wear boots.”

“He wears mine sometimes.” Kristoff interjected returning the favor by sticking his own tongue out at her.

Unable to help herself Anna pictured such an event taking place and laughed again. “Regardless it’s not Sven, he’s sweet, but the guy I like has feet not hooves.” She was being brutally obvious with her clues at the moment. She had been secretive before, but now she was simply telling him the truth. She had a feeling he already knew, but she wanted him to. The truth made her feel light and yet at the same time she was terrified. Her hands were shaking slightly and she kept shifting around in order to become more comfortable.

Kristoff wasn’t blind, he knew Anna had feelings for him, and he in return had feelings for her. He was fairly reserved, secretive, and unforthcoming with his emotion. He wasn’t sure of how deep her feelings for him ran, but he knew that she didn’t know how he felt for her. “Well other than feet, what does he look like?”

Anna’s blush was evident as they proceeded to discuss her love. She tucked herself into him further in hopes that he would not see how scarlet her face was. “He’s tall, twice my size, with big arms and broad shoulders.”

Kristoff smiled lightly, she was looking away from him so she did not see. He wrapped his arms around her and all but pulled her into his lap. If she was going to let him know her feelings, the very least he could do was make her comfortable.

Anna was shocked by Kristoff’s sudden action. Lying in his lap was comfortable; he was warm against the cool fall air. She took a deep breath and continued. “He has an amazing smile, even his eyes smile when he’s really happy. He has soft hair and rough hands.” Tentatively she turned her head so that her face nuzzled into his chest. She moved slightly so that her voice would not be muffled by his shirt. “He smells like the forest and he’s always working hard all the time.”

Kristoff loved the way it felt to have Anna tucked up and into him. Unable to help himself he moved his head so that his face was up in her hair. She had no idea of the devastating effect that she had on him. Of course he had never told her or shown her, but regardless it was true. She drove him crazy and he loved every minute of it. “So you think it’s love?” He asked gently, trying not to get his hopes up.

Anna sighed in contentment. It were as if her whole body was encompassed by Kristoff. She felt like he wasn’t just holding her but as if he were in her blood and in the air around her. Her life had never been so much about someone other than herself before meeting him, but now she knew that she could never again live without him. “I think so.” She said in a voice no louder than a whisper.

“You think so?” He asked confused by her unsure reply when earlier she had said it openly, proudly, and with great sweetness.

“Yes… I think I love him. I just don’t know if he’ll feel the same. I’m terrified of losing him.” She paused for a moment teary eyed and upset but not crying “He’s my best friend.”

Kristoff, still comfortable with his nose tucked into her hair began to gently play with a few loose strands that had fallen out of her braids. “Must be love then.” He said, kissing gently at the part of her hair. “Love strikes fear into the hearts of even the bravest men. If you’re afraid of losing someone, you must love them.”

“What would you know about love?” Anna asked softly, returning his original question.

“I was raised by love experts.” He said in reply just as softly as she had asked. “Plus I’m terrified of losing someone too.”

“Tell me about her.” Anna said as she began to trace small circles on his wrist with her thumb. She was embarrassed and nervous, but still with him she felt completely natural.

Kristoff lifted his head from her hair and leaned back against the pine tree behind them. He sighed still playing with her hair. “She stubborn, even more than me, she’s brave to a fault and even when she’s scared she tries to act tough. She loves life, she keeps her promises, and she is always kind to everyone.”

“She sounds like the perfect match for you.”

“I think so too.” Kristoff replied with a light chuckle. “She’s just perfect in general.”

Anna smiled praying that he was speaking of her as she had been speaking of him moments before. “What does she look like?” She turned so that she was facing him but was still being held by him.

Kristoff smiled and release her hair as she turned in his lap. “Beautiful.”

Anna laughed, “That’s not much of a description. There are plenty of beautiful women in Arendelle.”

Kristoff knew what she wanted, he had known, but he would never pass by the chance to tease her a bit. “She’s not your common beauty Anna. She’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. She’s slight and small, but it suits her well. Her hair is sunny as her personality, and her smile gets me into trouble.”

“That’s strangely romantic of you.” Anna teased. There was a light in his eyes, his features were soft and he was looking at only her. “What do you mean trouble?”

“I’d move the world for her if she asked me with that smile on her face. When she’s smiling I’ll do anything that she asks.”

Anna’s blush was back and in full view. Kristoff was looking at her lovingly in such a way that she had never been looked at before. She felt hot all over and there was a feeling in her chest that willed her to tell him flat out that she loved him. After all they had already all but confessed to one another. Instead, being unsure of what to do, she smiled at him.

“That’s the one.” Kristoff said absent mindedly as Anna smiled at him broadly. It took him a moment to realize what he had done, but he was happy to have it out in the open.

Anna could see all his feelings now and she was fairly sure that she was reading his reactions correctly. However it never hurt to be sure, “Do you love her?”

Kristoff returned her glowing smile and took a moment to think. “She’s the best thing that ever happened to me. The only friend I’ve ever had except for of course Sven, and my family knew that I loved her before I even did. So yes, I do love you Anna.”

Anna felt her heart race. The words had tumbled from his mouth so simply and naturally, it was as if it were something that he said every day. She stared at him awestruck but with a broad smile on her face. He was usually so silent and reserve, playful of course, but he rarely showed his emotions so outwardly. “I love you too Kristoff.”

It was a simple sentence, four simple words and a name, but it made Kristoff happier than he had ever been before. To hear his name come from her lips with a profession of love was almost too much to ever hope for, yet it had happened and he was grinning like an idiot over it.

Anna blushed even deeper than she had been moments before as she added to her admission. “I wish I would have told you sooner, but I was scared you wouldn’t feel the same. Other than Elsa you’re the only family that I have and even though we’re not really family yet I’ve thought of you as family for a really long time and…”

Kristoff pulled Anna up onto him so that she rested bridal style in his arms. He stood quickly and kissed her hard on the mouth. It was a moment of passion that also had the added effect of silencing her babbling. He had noticed before that she talked quickly when she was nervous or flustered and he knew that this would be the most effective manner by which he could quiet her. Pulling away from the kiss after a moment he smiled down at the young woman in his arms. “You’re my family too Anna.” He kissed her again softly, “Never forget that.”

Anna felt like she was floating. In just a few minutes everything she had been worried about for months had fallen into place. She relaxed completely into Kristoff’s arms. “I won’t.”

“Good.” He replied with a soft chuckle as he set her down onto her own two feet. “Now let’s get you back home, Elsa is probably worried about you, and I want to get you back before it gets dark.” He pointed up at the sky as he added softly, “I don’t want you to be out in the cold, I know it scares you.”

Anna appreciated his consideration and once again grabbed his hand. “I’m not afraid when I’m with you.” She turned to face him and stood up on her tiptoes. Her lips just caught his as she kissed him due to their difference in height. His free arm fell around her waist naturally as he leaned down and into her stolen kiss.

When the kiss finally broke the two walked off to find Olaf and Sven. Both were a little closer to each other and each a little more relieved than they had been upon entering the forest for a day out. They still had a way to go in the aspect of showing their true feelings, but today’s progress left them both breathless and full of hope for the future.
