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

The warmth of N’s own tears began to glide against my skin as we remained standing there under the heavy wind, our lips still pressed together, though we were slightly trembling from the bitter cold. N’s arms hesitantly slid from my back to my hips before circling around onto the surface of my stomach. With a sudden shove, I immediately stumbled, falling straight on my rear. A loud snort came from behind me, just before Gray charged forward, standing defensively between me and N. Gray clawed at the ground with his right hoof, warning N to back off. Though I doubt N noticed, he was in a heavy fit of tears, gasping for breath. Swablu fluttered over to my side, nipping at bits of my hair, making sure I was okay.
I nodded softly to her, giving her a quick smile before directing her on my shoulder. I couldn’t speak, I had not been expecting N to push me. It caught me completely off guard. I took a moment to stare up at N before rising to my feet, patting Gray gently on his
