It was always you
North’s enthusiasm never faltered as he continued the tour. The entire thing felt like my high school orientation all over again. There were so many floors and rooms, even a set of towers on either side of the building overlooking the arctic. Everything had a set purpose and that was only the main building. Over towards the west, just across the bridge Jack had led me on, there was another set of smaller buildings I hadn’t noticed before, though perhaps that was because walls of ice shielded them from my view. Below the bridge, there were even more smaller buildings. They looked like tiny villages which the yetis apparently lived in when they weren’t working in the main building. There was also an underground, a sort of dungeon made out of mostly ice, along with a storage room where he kept his finished work. North went on and on, how everything worked during the “work season” and how it worked when they had time o

Frailties of the Heart
Bunny’s girl? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
I felt myself become frustrated all over again. I whipped around, looking over at Ashe who sat close to Bunny. “H-h-how? Wh-when?” I muttered quickly, eyeing Ashe before turning back to North and Tooth. “You- you said... four years? Right?” I asked with some hesitation, holding my staff tightly, wanting and not wanting to know the answer.
I had been waiting for this, even if Pitch forced me to share her a little earlier than I had planned. I was savoring my moments with Ashe until I was ready to introduce her to the others. I wanted to see how they would react to a teenager that still believed in them.
None of it went as I had hoped.
North and Tooth shot nervous glances at one another, before eyeing Bunny down the hall. He was a good distance away with Ashe and Sandy by his side, completely surrounded by an army of curious elves who were mostly

The wind howled lightly, blowing snow all across the landscape, creating beautifully abstract dunes. It looked like a painting, especially the way the sun glinted against the snow and ice, creating all kinds of blue hues. The snow caught in the wind almost looked like glittering wisps of smoke as it raced across the frozen earth. I kept stopping, looking all around, admiring the beauty all around me. I wanted to take absolutely everything in, despite being nearly frozen to the core. It was just so very breath taking, I didn’t really care that my fingers or my face felt numb. There was just no place quite like the Pole.
“Ashe! Hey, come on, there’ll be plenty of time for that later.” Jack chuckled, his soft laughter echoing slightly. I turned to Jack who was only a few feet away, his feet buried completely in the snow as he leaned against his staff, shaking his head slightly before motioning to the palace in the backgrou

The warmth of the bed had failed in putting me to sleep. Instead, I lay silently in bed, unable to hear the silence through my own thoughts. I just couldn’t stop thinking of what I learned today, though I guess, technically that was yesterday. I had honestly expected for Pitch to show, but after hours of staying up and the sun already rising, I could only guess he was keeping his distance. I groaned and rolled onto my side, adjusting myself slowly upward into a sitting position. I felt frustrated now, completely irritated.
“What’s he waiting for? He’s obviously nearby, why doesn’t he show up!” I complained, suddenly realizing I was talking to myself and asking for Pitch to appear despite knowing all the chaos he caused. I groaned again, throwing myself back into bed before pulling the sheets over my face. Something then caught my attention, there was an unmistakable sound coming from downstairs, causing me to sl
I am an insane photographer who also draws and writes. I spend lots of time on the internet, on video games, at school, on homework, and of course the outdoors. Despite my anti-social and bookworm tendencies, I am definitely a wild child who loves nature and nearly every aspect that comes with it. (Reason why I photograph nature the most). |
I can become easily obsessed with things, which is why I stay away from actual drugs, general smoking and drinking, and the related; besides, all my hobbies are my drug.
I like a lot of stuff other than my hobbies; but I don't want to go into writing them because I might not ever stop.
