Warm Hugs

By SarahMichelle

Drama / Adventure

Introduction

The summer sun was out, the winds were blowing a breeze through the trees, and the peaceful sound of waves crashed against the shores of Arendelle. By the perfect weather now, one could not believe that just a week ago, Arendelle was trapped in an eternal winter. While the queen remained busy at the castle, running back and forth between foreign dignitary meetings and council meetings, Anna and Olaf were creating sand-snowmen on the beach.

"Oh, this is so much fun, Anna! This is exactly how I imagined what summer would be like!"

Anna let out a light giggle, "Me too! Well not exactly like this, because I mean who would've thought that I would be making sand-snowmen with a real snowman in the middle of summer?! I mean, come-on that just sounds crazy!"

Olaf gave a little frown, "But you're not crazy, Anna...you're perfect just the way you are."

"Oh no, Olaf! That's not what I meant! I meant that-"

"You wanna know who's craaazy?! Sv-Kristoff! I mean, he's lived with talking rocks all his life and he even talks to a reindeer who 'answers' back to him. Come on, Anna, don't you think that a talking reindeer is a lit-tle strange?!"

Anna smirked as a gruff voice behind Olaf retorts, "...No stranger than a real life talking snowman, perhaps?"

Olaf slowly turned towards the voice behind him, "Hey Kristoff! We were just talking about you! All good things...all good things..."

Kristoff smirked while crossing his arms, "I'm sure...Olaf, we really have to do something about your gossiping problem, you know that?"

The snowman gasped, "I do not have a gossiping problem! I just simply believe that good communication creates a strong foundation in any relationship so that-"

"You told Elsa about the kiss Anna and I shared at the docks a few days ago! I just came from an hour meeting with the queen about the proper etiquette of courting a princess!"

Now it was Anna's turn to gasp, "What?! Olaf, you didn't! I mean it's not like we did anything scandalous, but after the whole engaged-to-an-evil-man-whose-name-shall-not-be-spoken incident, I would have preferred to have told my sister at my own time."

Olaf looked down guiltily, "I'm sorry, Anna. I was just so excited that you and Kristoff were getting married that-"

The distressed ice deliverer interrupted, "Wait, what?! When did Anna and I say we were getting married?!"

At the same time Anna shrieked, "YOU DIDN'T TELL ELSA WE WERE GETTING MARRIED DID YOU?!"

Olaf mindlessly scuffed his snow-feet against the sand, "...like I said. I was really excited about the whole thing and I just had to tell someone about it. So yeah...I might have mentioned something about your wedding..."

The couple remained silent and just stared at the meddling snowman. There was an awkward tension that seemed to hang for about a minute until Anna sighed and crouched down to Olaf's level.

"Olaf...I know you meant well, but please...just promise me that the next time you want to talk about my personal life with Elsa, or anyone else for that matter, ask me about it first. Luckily this time it wasn't anything that couldn't be fixed, but just remember that for next time, okay?"

Olaf lifted up his eyes and quietly said, "I promise, Anna."

Anna smiled a warm smile, "Besides, I don't think there is any problematic situation that couldn't be fixed with a warm hug. Don't you agree?"

Olaf giggled as he jumped up and down, "I LOVE warm hugs!"

As Anna and Olaf hugged, Kristoff look out towards the oceans horizon and noticed a ship approaching with a familiar emblem on its sails. A familiarly unwanted emblem at that.

"Uhhh, Anna?"

Anna looked up, "Yes, Kristoff?" When Kristoff did not answer her, she stood up, "What is it Kristoff? What's wrong?"

Kristoff remained silent and just pointed out towards the approaching ship. Once Anna turned around, he cautiously spoke up, "Are you sure that ALL things can be fixed with a warm hug?"

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...
