Frozen II: A Fire Fueled by Rage

Chapter 6: Fire and Ice

(Zander's P.O.V.)

My vision was still a little out of focus when I woke up, everything was blurry and it was hard for me to focus. I brought my hands up to rub my face when I noticed something. I wasn't wearing my gloves.

I looked down and saw my fancy clothes were gone… well I never liked them anyway. In their place was a leather no-sleeve vest and loose leather pants. My feet were bare and I wasn't wearing a shirt under the vest so I could clearly see the tanned skin of my torso. This was bad, this was very bad. I need to wear my gloves. Then I noticed the chain attached to the shackles on my wrists. My eyes followed the chain to the wall; it was then that I realized I was in a cell.

I tried to move, but my headache pounded against the inside of my skull causing my vision to blur again. I felt strangely cold, every now and then a new wave of cold swept through my body causing my to shiver.

"Good you're awake." A familiar voice called out to me, I looked and saw Captain's face looking down at me, he was smirking, and most likely happy I was in this cell. Well I'm sure his joy won't last very long, "Get up, it's time for your welcome." I growled and refused to move, "You can come willingly or we can drag you there it's your choice. You're in no shape to fight so I suggest you just do as I say." I started to stand up, it was a major strain, but I managed to stand on my feet without falling down.

"What did you do to me?" I growled at him.

"I didn't do anything, this was Queen Elsa's doing." Captain said, Elsa? She must've used her powers on me as I was escaping, "Come on, we only want to ask you a few questions, if you cooperate. This will all be over." Like I was going to tell them anything, not that there was anything to say in the first place.

The interrogation wasn't working, that I know, I wasn't saying a thing. There were two people in front of me, Captain and a Lieutenant Kemp, "Listen Zander, we just want to know why and how you set fire to the building. Then you're free to go." Kemp said in a soothing voice. I didn't answer for the hundredth time that day.

Captain glared at me, "Maybe you need a little convincing." He took a knife at his belt and pressed it against my throat, "Now I'm asking you again. What are you planning to do to Arendelle?" I could feel blood trickle down the outside of my throat and he pressed the knife harder against my throat.

"I bet you'd want to kill me right now Captain," I said then I smirked, "But you know you can't, because you want information. You have no idea what is in my mind, but you'd really like to find out, wouldn't you?"

Captain growled, "Our orders were to keep you alive." Then he gave a smirk of his own, "The Queen never specified on how alive he needed to keep you." He turned to Kemp, "Get the tools; we're going to have some fun with this prisoner."

(Elsa's P.O.V.)

Was it really the right decision to put Zander in prison? Ever since I hit Zander with my ice, I had grown worried about him, "Elsa!" I turned to see Anna and Kristoff running up to me, "Is it true that Zander's in prison?" I simply nodded. Anna looked at me like I was crazy, "Why?"

I turned away because I couldn't look her in the eye, "I'm keeping Arendelle safe from future threats."

"What threat?" Anna said behind me, "Zander hasn't done any harm; he's done quite the opposite."

"You know, you're doing more harm than good Elsa," I turned toward Kristoff.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

Kristoff waited a bit before answering, as if wondering how to put it, "If there's anything I've learned from Zander in the time that I've known him. It's that he's incredibly stubborn and won't tell you anything he doesn't want to." He explained "If the guards get impatient and stop trying to talk the information out of him, there's a chance they might…" he trailed off at the end because I was sure he didn't want to say it. Anna gasped as realization came to her. I didn't want to say it either, but I knew what Kristoff meant.

(Zander's P.O.V.)

"I thought I thought you were supposed to be torturing me?" I told Captain after several attempts of trying to force information out of me. I was sure I didn't look good, I certainly didn't feel good. Actually some of his methods almost worked a few more minutes and I probably would've given in, good thing Captain was the impatient type or else he probably would've continued.

"Put him back in his cell so he can reconsider the things he's done." Captain commanded and I was dragged to my cell and thrown into it. They then reattached the shackles to my wrists then left me alone. The pain combined with the constant chills and loss of blood caused me to lose consciousness once again.

When I came to I was standing in what looked like an old abandoned battle ground. Nothing was growing, the ground was grey and cracked, and the only sound was the wind slowly whistling through the air. "You're so weak." I turned around to see Rage standing only a few yards away, "You had the opportunity, you felt the rage, and you could've stopped the pain!" he shouted at me, "But when you had the chance, you only let them torture you like the coward you are!" I tried to get up but Rage ran forward and put his foot on my chest, "You have the power to take the entire kingdom of Arendelle, but you only try to hold it back and keep it hidden." I tried to force his foot off of me, but it remained, "You can master the fire inside yourself, and you can use it to show them exactly what you can do!" he said in a commanding voice, then he did something I didn't expect him to do. He took his foot off my chest and held a hand out to me, "C'mon get up." I reached up and gripped his hand and he easily pulled me up, "Why won't you use your fire?"

I hesitated, "Why use what I can't control?" I replied. Rage nodded, it was surprising, I was talking to the part of me that I hated, and that part of me is trying to help.

Rage was about to answer, but the area began to fade, "I can't tell you now, but don't this is the last you'll hear from me." the last thing I saw before everything faded was Rage's smirking face.

I woke up to the feel of water being dumped on me, "Finally you're awake." Captain's voice said above me, "You've been sleeping for a few days, we we're starting to think that you would never wake up."

"It's nice to know that you actually care," I said in a low voice, "So are you taking me to the torture room again?"

Surprisingly he shook his head, "No, not now at least, you have a visitor. Strange that anybody would want to talk to someone like you." I felt his hatred, and I'm pretty sure the feeling is completely mutual. Captain opened the door and Kristoff, Anna, and the small snowman, Olaf I think his name is, walked in, I saw them, but I kept my head down.

Anna looked at me appearance with a shocked expression. I probably look worse than I feel; she gathered herself and spoke to Captain, "Captain, we would like to talk to Zander alone."

"Princess, I don't think that would be wise." Captain said, "I don't think I should leave you with a criminal like him." Anna flinched at the word criminal.

"Captain, I'm sure I'll be fine, I have Kristoff with me and Zander is chained up, so I doubt he would try anything." I had to admit, Anna made a good point, but if I were to use my true method of fighting, nobody would come anywhere near me.

"Very well, but if he tries anything, just tell me." like I was going to anything, well not intentional anyway.

The second the door closed and Captain was out of sight, the 'princess side' of Anna dropped and she went into her 'worried and rambling' mode, "Zander are you okay? Of course you're not okay I mean look at you. I don't see how they could just throw you in jail after everything you've done." She stopped and really looked at me for a second before continuing, "Hey, are you okay?" she asked, her voice sounding with pure concern.

I finally lifted my head to look at Anna in the eye, there was a moment of silence before I looked down at my arms, marked from several torture attempts, "Do you need a hug?" Olaf said as he walked closer to me, I wasn't sure if I could give him a hug, I might melt him.

"No offense little guy," I said in a hoarse voice, "But I don't think I need a hug from you. I appreciate the offer though." Olaf seemed to be okay with my answer, but he still looked a little hurt.

"Are you okay Zander?" Kristoff asked, noticing I wasn't acting like I did while I was with him.

I shook my head, "No… I'm confused, angry, and conflicted." I sighed, negative emotions pulsed through my brain, and it was giving me a migraine. "I need some time to myself. Just leave me alone." I turned away so I couldn't look at them. The only hint I had that they had left was the sound of the cell door opening and closing.

I sighed at the silence the cell brought. Normally in this situation I would craft something to take my mind off the constant negative emotions forcing their way into my mind. Now, I had nothing to take my mind off of things. I leaned my back against the wall and slowly forced myself to fall asleep.

(Anna's P.O.V.)

It almost broke my heart to see Zander like this. I was looking through the window in the door of his cell. He looked and acted nothing like when I first met him, "I've never seen him like this in the time that I've known him." I thought out loud. I know I haven't known him very long, but still.

"I have, but only once," I turned to Kristoff, "It was the day before the wedding, we were sharing stories about our past adventures, Zander decided to tell us the experience he remembers the most." I wonder what it was, "It clearly took a lot out of him to tell us. After he was done he left and went home." I nodded and looked back into the cell, Zander had fallen asleep.

"We can't keep him in there." I stated.

(Elsa's P.O.V.)

I was hearing Captain's report on his progress with Zander, he had learned nothing, "Queen Elsa, Zander is a strong person I cannot deny it, but I'm positive there's something he isn't telling us, and what he's hiding must be pretty big if he went through all that and barely said a thing." I could tell that Captain hated Zander, he tried to cover it up, but I knew he hated him.

I had an idea, "What if at the next interrogation I was there with you?" I suggested.

Captain looked at me as if I was completely crazy, "Your majesty, I'm sure it would help a little, but Zander is dangerous and I just couldn't put Arendelle's Queen in danger." I rolled my eyes I held up my hand and ice swirled around it.

"Trust me Captain," I said with a smirk, "I think I'll be fine."

(Zander's P.O.V.)

I opened my eyes to find myself in Rage's domain. "Is there a reason you keep bringing me out here Rage."

He chuckled as he came into view, "Is that what you call me?" he asked, "I like it, but I don't think it really fits, after all; I am you." I opened my mouth, he held up a hand, "I am you, just the part that has embraced the fire inside you. The reason I only come out when you're angry is because your mind is weak and so is your actions, so I only take over so you don't go too crazy."

I found myself getting angry, "So you're the one that killed my parents!" I shouted at him.

He shook his head, "After that day you still consider them your parents?" I didn't answer, "Well that wasn't me, and it wasn't you either, that was the curse. With the sorcerer, that was you finally embracing the fire." He started to fade, "Eventually you'll find yourself wanting to use your fire, for once be proud of what you're capable of."

Someone was slightly shaking me awake. I looked up to see… Elsa? Her soft hand was on my shoulder and her face wasn't far from mine. If I was normal, I'm sure I would've blushed at the close proximity. Elsa gave me a warm smiled and unlocked my shackles, "Come on Zander, Captain wants to talk to you." Her voice was soft, it gave a calming feel to my mind, I looked down to avoid looking into her beautiful blue eyes, "Don't worry, this time I'll be there to make sure Captain doesn't try anything so harmful." Curse her angelic voice, deciding it would be bad to disobey the Queen; I got up and followed her.

Captain glared at me the second I walked into the room, his harsh glare followed me all the way until I sat in the chair in front of him, "Good to see you again," he said. I didn't answer and he smirked at the state I was in, "Why don't we get started," he said, and then he added in a low voice so only I could hear, "I know you're close, and I will enjoy breaking you." If I'm going to be broken, I would prefer that it not be caused by him.

After a long time of questioning, I didn't give either of them anything. Captain looked close to killing, I couldn't tell what Elsa was thinking, she looked hurt that I wouldn't say anything to her, "Zander I'm asking you for the last time," Captain, trying very hard not to lose his temper, "Please tell me what you know."

"I told you, there's nothing to tell." I said, "Seriously Captain I thought I already told you an idiot like you could ever get information out of me." I'm guessing that was when Captain snapped, because seconds after I finished speaking, he smacked me across the face hard enough to knock me out of the chair.

"Just shut up!" I tried to get up but I felt his foot slam into the side of my back and I fell to the ground grunting in pain, Captain's rage shot through my brain, "I swear if you don't tell me the information right now, I'll make sure to make your life a living hell."

Use your fire. You know you want to. Rage's voice echoed inside my head, I felt Captain's foot coming at my body, I grabbed his ankle and stopped it, "I've been living hell from the minute I was born." I said in a low and dangerous voice and I started to heat up my hand like I did with Robert. The fabric of the uniform started to smoke before bursting into flames. Then I twisted my arm and my hand gripped his skin.

Captain yowled in pain as my hand continued to heat up. You can do better than that. I released his ankle and he stumbled away with a slight limp in his step. I stood up with strength and confidence, "You made a mistake of getting on my bad side Captain." I said and I set my hands ablaze. Captain and Elsa looked at me in fear, well Elsa's expression looked more astonished than scared.

Captain shook his fear off and glared at me, "Fine, now that you've given me what I want I can finally get rid of you." He drew his sword, pathetic. I reeled my hand back and blasted a fireball at him. Captain barley dodged it and started to swing his sword at me. I dodged the blade the best I could, but he pulled a feint attack and quickly reversed direction to take me by surprise. Instinctively I moved my hand up in an attempt to block the blade and the world seemed to slow down.

I waited for the blade to slice through my hand, but then my hand began to glow and the minute the blade was about to hit my hand the metal began to melt and my hand passed through the molten metal of the blade. Captain was surprised by what I did, and so was I. He saw my surprised and used the hilt of his blade to hit my forehead. The impact caused me to lose consciousness and fall to the floor.

(Elsa's P.O.V.)

I cannot believe what I just saw. Zander just shot fire out of his hands and melted a steel sword before it could cut off his hand. Captain was breathing heavily he lowered his sword, which only now had half a blade and took a few steps back with a slight limp in his step. Part of the pant leg of his uniform, was burned and there was a large and serious burn on his ankle, "Captain, maybe you should go to the infirmary and get that burn looked at." Captain nodded and limped out of the room in silence. I called some guards to bring Zander back to his cell.

When they took Zander out of the room I looked at the wall where Zander's fireball had hit. It had burned a small crater and the area around it was black. I turned my attention to the partially melted sword, that's when it hit me. Zander could've melted through the metal of his shackles and would've easily gotten away. So why didn't he? I had to tell Anna and Kristoff about this.

(Zander's P.O.V.)

I was in Rage's domain again, I heard clapping, "Bravo, very impressive. I never thought you had it in you." I don't know whether to be insulted or flattered. "Burning Captain's ankle was a nice touch, if we're lucky he won't be able to walk normally for a while." I found myself laughing at that statement. "But you're still holding back, you can do way more than burning and fireballs."

"I also don't want to burn the palace down." I said.

"Good point," I looked around and saw the grey domain was different, there was snow and ice in some places.

"What happened here?" the ice was slowly spreading causing the cracks in the grey ground to grow wider.

Rage shrugged, "I don't know, but I think Elsa had something to do with it."

(Elsa's P.O.V.)

"Kai, what is the report on Captain's condition?" I asked my head servant.

Kai seemed uneasy, but he didn't let it stop him, "Well, the burn seems pretty bad, Captain my not be able to walk the same ever again, so he may have trouble doing his job as Captain." I nodded, I wasn't too disappointed, after seeing Captain's behavior for the past while, I was beginning to feel that it would be right to replace him soon.

"And do you know where Kristoff and Anna are?" I asked.

Kai nodded, "I think they went into town to get a few things." I wonder what Anna's up to now?

(Kristoff's P.O.V.)

"Anna I realize you want to get Zander out of prison, but how exactly is buying chocolate going to solve it?" I asked my wife as we entered Arendelle's Chocolate Shop, and were immediate greeted by the owner, Will (or was it Willy) and his assistant Charlie.

"We can use some chocolate to warm Elsa up before asking her to release Zander, I figure she'll do it if she's in a good mood." The Ice Queen, warmed up?

When left the shop with a box of chocolate to find Elsa not too far away, and walking toward us, "I figured I'd find you two here." we were going to answer but she held up a hand, "I have something important to discus with the both of you, and it involves Zander." Anna and I looked at each other; maybe this will be easier than we thought.

We were now standing in Elsa's private study; the last time (and first time) I was here was when I asked for Elsa's blessing for me and Anna's marriage, "So what about Zander do we need to talk about?" Anna asked beside me.

Elsa sighed and looked like she was trying to figure out how to say something, "Zander… is like me. He can control fire just like I can control ice."

(Zander's P.O.V.)

I woke up with a headache threatening to spit my skull, "Damn Captain to hell." I mumbled to myself as I rubbed the area Captain hit me. Emotions ran through my brain like a river going downhill, actually more like magma going through the tubes of a volcano. I need to let off some steam, I took a deep breath and released it through my nose in irritation, I was surprised to see smoke leave my nostrils. "That's interesting." I muttered to myself.

I heard footsteps approaching, I closed my eyes and my brain sensed the heat signals through the wall, the one in the lead that have a blue heat aura was obviously Elsa and the two people with her were who I assumed to be Kristoff and Anna, but something was different about Anna. I couldn't place it, but the heat she gave off seemed… off, or maybe stronger?

The door opened, but I didn't open my eyes. Before Elsa could get my attention I spoke, "Hello Elsa; and you've brought Kristoff and Anna with you." I opened my eyes and looked at the royal family. "Don't look so surprised Elsa, with what you've seen from me today. I doubt you wouldn't have expected something like this from me."

Anna looked at me, "So it is true what Elsa told us?" she asked with uncertainty. I waited for a moment before turning around and while facing the wall behind me. I put a finger on the stone and began to run my finger across it. wherever my finger trailed a red hot trail followed. I added more fingers and I began to burn an image on the prison wall. When I removed my hand I saw some of it had faded, focusing I relit the entire thing to show a picture of Anna's smiling face.

I turned to the dumb-founded trio, "That answer your question?" they all nodded, "But I sense that that isn't all you came down here for."

Anna shook her head, "Well we were going to ask you something very important." She waited a bit, "We were hoping that you would live here in the castle for a little while." My eyes widened, did they just-, "Of course the choice is up to you, we don't want to force you to do anything. We just thought that after the life you've had. It would be nice for you to have some good company." They were serious, but I still didn't answer, it was a lot to take in.

"Can I talk to Anna alone for a bit?" I asked, each of them had a different reaction. Kristoff was concerned, Elsa was worried, and Anna was surprised, "Don't worry I just want to talk to her." Elsa and Kristoff were hesitant, but the left the cell, but still staying pretty close, probably to help Anna if I tried anything. I looked at the strawberry blonde and asked one thing, "Why?"

Anna didn't answer for a moment, "We're all concerned about you, especially Elsa."

"Do you want me to stay only because of Elsa?" I asked.

She smiled innocently, but I could clearly see the playfulness in her eyes, "Maybe," I chuckled slightly finding Anna's cheerfulness a little contagious, "Look just think about it and whatever you decide, we'll accept." She walked away and left the cell.

It seems that each member of the royal family has something to admire about them. I definitely liked their company-

My thoughts were cut short as a chill coursed through my body, this one stronger than the ones before it. the cold continued to spread until it just vanished. Breathing heavily I felt my strength leave my body, what is happening to me? was all I could as myself before I slipped into unconsciousness.

(Elsa's P.O.V.)

Anna left cell and told us that Zander would think about it. I almost felt tempted to go back into the cell and talk to Zander. Anna spoke up, "You want to talk to Zander don't you?" I hadn't realized I'd been looking at Zander's cell until just now, "You like him don't you?" I tried not to blush, because that would only add more to Anna's theory.

"I don't like him, I just met him a few days ago." I said hoping to defend myself.

Anna smirked, "It only took me a few days to like Kristoff," this time I did blush and Anna let out a small squeal, "Oh my gosh, you do like Zander." Panicking I covered Anna's mouth with my hand.

"Quiet, he could hear you." I said then I realized I just confirmed Anna's theory, "Okay you got me, I like him a little."

"Well you have good taste your majesty." Both of us jumped and turned to see Gerda, our head maid, behind us with a tray, "Sorry to startle you, I just thought I'd bring our guest his next meal."

I blushed, "So did you just hear our conversation?" I asked.

She nodded, "Don't worry your secret is safe with me." she walked past us and into the cell. We were about to leave ourselves when she came back looking quite frantic, "Your Highness something's wrong with Zander." She led us into his cell where I saw Zander.

He was curled up in a ball and shivering like he was freezing to death. His fingers kept fidgeting and his face kept changing, his skin looked paler than it did a few minutes ago, "I don't know what happened, he looked like he was simply asleep, but when I put a hand on him to wake him up he was ice cold and then he started shaking."

My eyes widened, it was happening again. Just like 13 years ago with Anna, but she didn't have this kind of reaction. Kristoff came into the cell, "What's happening?" I was too scared to answer, good thing Anna answered for me.

"Something's wrong with Zander, and we don't know what."

Kristoff looked at Zander and then at me, "Did you hit him with your ice?"

I nodded, "Before he was arrested he tried to get away. I tried to stop him, but I panicked and before I knew it the ice hit the back of his head."

Anna looked worried, "Do we need to take him to Pabbie?" she asked.

"I don't know, I never really paid attention when he told me about this kind of stuff, I think it's different for people with powers then it is with people without powers." He said, "I think he might be able to fight his way through it since he does have power over fire." I breathed a small sigh of relief, "But we might want to bring him to the infirmary. I don't think he's comfortable curled up on the ground."

I was now sitting next to Zander, who was now resting in a hospital bed. Zander was constantly shifting, as if he was having a nightmare. I started to reach out my hand, but then I hesitated when Zander started thrashing around, then he started to cam and his breathing started to slow. Thinking that he might be giving up I put a hand on his shoulder, "Zander, you can't give up, you can push through this." I lean over and kissed his cheek, "I know you can."

"Queen Elsa," I heard Kai's voice behind me, "The council needs to speak with you."

I sighed, "I'll be right there." I stood up and followed Kai with Zander still on my mind.

(Zander's P.O.V.)

There was even more snow and ice than before, and it was snowing with the wind slightly blowing. The cracks in the ground were even wider and the clouds were darker than before. "Elsa has really impacted your life." I turned to see Rage, he was starting to fade, "If you think this is bad, it's about to get far worse." When he finished his sentence he faded completely.

The ground rumbled behind me and I turned around to see a large icy arm burst out of the ground and grip the ground in front of me and a large ice monster pulled itself out of the dry icy terrain. It was enormous with huge spikes coming out of his back, shoulders and had powerful clawed hands of pure ice. The monster's face glared down at me before it started to attack.

I didn't have time to dodge before an icy back hand caused me to go flying backwards, pain erupted in my chest and I could've sworn a few of my ribs almost broke. I clutched my aching chest, but rolled out of the way before the ice monster could stomp me into a pile of mush. I got up to my feet and set my hands aflame. I then shot a large burst of fire at the monster and melted a large part of the side of his chest.

The ice monster roared with a newly found rage and the spikes seemed to grow, there were now spikes on its wrists and now had icicle teeth. It lunged at me and tried to rib me to shreds with its enormous hands. He got a lucky shot and slashed me across the chest before punching me and sending me flying. I landed painfully on the ground and my vision was beginning to blur and fade. I was forcing myself to stay alive at this point.

How am I supposed to destroy this thing, what if I can't? Should I just give up and let myself be killed? It actually didn't seem like a bad idea. I was beginning to lessen my struggle on life,"Zander," was that Elsa? "You can push through this." I felt a warm feeling surge through my entire body, "I know you can." Elsa's voice encouraging me made my body feel alive, summoning strength I didn't know I had I stood up and began to form something in my hand out of fire.

The ice monster roared and charged, when it was yards away from trampling me I dove to the side while swinging whatever my fire had formed and one of the legs separated from the monster's body. Thrown off balance the monster stumbled before falling to the ground. I looked down at my hand to see my fire had made a sword. Not a sword of fire, but and actual, solid sword.

It was a katana; the slightly curved blade was a deep crimson with obsidian flame designs running up the blade, the hilt was black and long enough to grip with two hands, but still short enough to use with one hand comfortably.

Gripping the sword t turned to the ice monster that was trying to balance on one foot. The monster leaned forward and put his arms on the ground and bellowed while running towards me like a three-legged animal. I released my own roar and charged. When I was close enough I sliced off one of his arms and carved a large gash in his side. The icy beast howled in pain and fell to the ground, to make sure I finished it off I climbed onto the back of the monster and stood in between two of the spikes on its upper back and stabbed my sword deep into it. The ice that made up the body began to melt and eventually my sword was in the ground. A red pulse was sent out of the sword in all directions and all of the ice and snow began to melt. When all of it was gone, the snowstorm also ended, but the large cracks and fissures in the grey ground were still there. Feeling exhausted I dropped the sword which made an echoing clang when it hit the hard ground and I collapsed next to it. My vision went black.

My eyes slowly opened, but they were still slightly squinted. The first thing I noticed was that I was in the infirmiry. The next thing I noticed was that Captain was walking towards me, by the looks of it he thought I was still unconscious. He held I dagger in his hand. When he got to the edge of my bed he held the dagger over my chest.

"It's time I rid the world of this curse." He said, when he tried to bring his hand down. Mine shot up and grabbed his wrist the same time my eyes fully opened. Then they narrowed and I heated up my hand.

"I wouldn't do that if I were you," I growled. I gripped his wrist hard enough that he dropped his dagger, "Good boy, now if you don't mind I would like to know where the royal family is."

"Queen Elsa has been in a council meeting all day, I don't know where the Princess and Ice Master are." I released his wrist and got out of the bed. That was when I saw a familiar strawberry blonde come in.

(Elsa's P.O.V.)

I couldn't focus on anything in the council was talking about, I was too distracted my Zander. I hope he was alright, "Queen Elsa," Kia's voice interrupted my thoughts, "Are you alright?"

I shook the thoughts out of my head, "Sorry I just have a lot on my mind that's all."

Kia nodded, "Should we end the meeting early and continue tomorrow?" I gave a polite nod and the meeting was adjourned. I left the council room and wanted to check on Zander, hopefully his health was improving.

I was turning a corner when Anna bumped into me, "There you are Elsa, I have something to show you. Well more like someone." I was about to question her when I heard a chuckle.

"Okay Anna I think I can reveal myself." I turned to see Zander leaning against a wall not too far away, the red streak on his hair seeming to glow against his black hair, his arms were folded and looked perfectly healthy. Seeing my surprise he smiled, "Seeing what I can do you shouldn't be too surprised." Anna giggled. He walked toward me, "Is that offer still available?"
