More Than True Love's Kiss

By Genevieve Kelly

Romance / Fantasy

Chapter 1

Hans of the Southern Isles sat upon the throne he had stolen from the rightful Queen of Arendelle after Elsa had disappeared and he had had Princess Anna and her odd fiancé dumped into the ocean with a little help from Blackbeard. Once he had taken over the kingdom, Hans reveled in the riches he now possessed and threw a grand celebration in his own honor to present himself the people's ruler, though no one celebrated joyfully. They weren't told the truth about how their rightful rulers died, but the people hated the Prince nonetheless because they knew the kind of man Hans was.

Queen Elsa's most loyal and trusted guard and Captain walked into the throne room as Hans was laying back lazily upon the throne while tossing a coin up and down through the air and between his fingers, then cleared his throat to get the Prince's attention before he said, "Forgive the intrusion, Your Majesty, but you have a visitor."

Hans glared at the man and answered, "As I have told you many times, I have brothers to take care of any unwanted guests for me, twelve of them. Go bother one of them. I'm busy right now."

"I'm afraid that this visitor is someone you're going to need to see for yourself, Your Majesty," the guard replied in frustration. "He specifically asked to speak with you. I suggest you take time out of your, busy schedule, to see him."

"Fine, show this man in," the Prince responded with a sigh. "Who is he anyway?"

The Captain answered, "He didn't say. He simply insisted that he speak with you."

Hans called out to the man again before the soldier could leave the room saying, "By the way, I have another job for you to take care of. I told two of your men to take care of that stupid, pesky reindeer living in the stable that's been driving me and my brothers crazy. I want you to have your men put it down."

"That reindeer belonged to Princess Anna's fiancé," the Captain of the guards replied angrily. "It would be wrong to…"

"Princess Anna's fiancé, along with Princess Anna and Queen Elsa are all dead," Hans responded coldly as he stood before the guard. "I am your King now, so you will do as I say. Send the visitor in and have the reindeer killed immediately. Is that understood?"

The Captain answered, "Yes, Your Majesty."

The leader of the soldiers now under Prince Han's command left the main hall, not seeing that there was someone hiding as he walked passed, someone who had just overheard the Prince's orders. When the coast was clear, Olaf stepped out from the place he hid and as quickly as he could, rushed off to find Sven and set him free before the soldiers could carry their orders out.

As he ran toward the stable as quickly as he could, the funny little snowman kept alive by his very own snow flurry cried out fearfully to himself, "I've got to help Sven. Kristoff would never get over it if anything happened to his strange, furry companion, not that Kristoff would ever know. What am I saying? Kristoff's alive and he's coming back, along with Anna and Elsa. I wouldn't still be here if they were dead, at least if Queen Elsa was dead. Kristoff's family told me so. They're all coming back. Yay! Hmmm! Hmmm! Hmmm! Hmmm!"

Meanwhile…

Elsa stepped through the Sorcerer's magical doorway first, followed by Kristoff and finally Anna, each of them yearning for home. As they travelled through the portal from Storybrooke into the unknown, a bright light blinded them and when they finally arrived on the other side, neither could see for several moments. When they could see, they looked between each other and then together turned to their surroundings, seeing their beautiful homeland of Arendelle once again.

They began to dance around as they shouted joyfully, Anna crying out, "We're home! They were right. I mean, of course they were right, but… they were right!"

Kristoff quickly responded, "I have to admit, I doubted they would get us home through some magic portal, especially after Emma mentioned something about magic beans, but let's just say, I've never been so happy to be wrong in my life."

"Why does other magic still surprise you?" Elsa asked as she turned to look at her sister's fiancé. "After everything we've been through, even before we found ourselves in a strange land?"

"I don't really know," Arendelle's Ice Master answered with a shrug. "But you have to admit, magic beans sound a little farfetched, don't you think?"

Elsa laughed and then replied, "Anything's possible for me now. I'm so glad to be home, but I'm going to miss Emma and the rest of Storybrooke. They helped me to finally accept my gift, my magic."

Anna pulled her sister into a hug, then looked down at their castle off in the distance and spoke in all seriousness saying, "For which I am incredibly grateful, but right now, we have something much more important to deal with. I owe Hans another black eye to match the first one I gave him."

"I hope you let me get a shot in this time," Kristoff responded gruffly. "It's my job to defend you."

"Believe me, you're going to get your chance," Elsa answered coldly as she too turned and looked down upon their kingdom as the three of them stood upon the mountain top, where Elsa's ice palace once stood before she unthawed Arendelle from her terrible winter. "It's going to take all of us to defeat Hans and his twelve brothers, and whoever else is fighting at his side."

Anna quickly added, "Yeah, like Blackbeard and his filthy pirates."

Elsa looked between Anna and Kristoff as she asked, "Blackbeard and his pirates?"

"Uh, that's the long story we tried to tell you about before," Kristoff replied. "And it looks like we're going to have a long walk down this mountain to tell you it. Luckily for you, I may actually know a shorter way down, though we could probably use a little magic of our own, especially if we're going to defeat our enemies."

"Don't worry, I've got the magic covered," Elsa responded with a smirk.
