Crystal

Chapter 1 

*Past*

On a bright and sunny day, a three year old Princess skipped down the halls to the library, her pink, stuffed rabbit dragging along behind her. Luckily the door was open, peeking her head inside, she saw her mother and father sitting on one of the couch. She walked over to them.

"Hi Mama, hi Papa." The three year old said.

"Hi there Crystal." Idun said.

"Hi Crystal." Agdar said as well.

"What are you all doing?" Crystal asked as she climbed onto the couch, sitting between them.

"Reading, what are you doing?" Agdar said.

"Nothing, I'm bored. Can we play hide and seek?"

"Sure." Idun said. "I'll count and you hide." When Idun started counting, she hid behind the couch and Agdar hid behind the bookshelf.

"Alright here I come." Idun saw Agdar behind the bookshelf, "Found you."

"You found me, where's Crystal." They walked past the couch and heard giggling coming from behind the couch.

"I wonder where Crystal is." Idun said as Agdar tip toed behind the couch. Crystal's back was turned to him as she giggled, she squealed as Agdar picked her up and spun her around.

"Put me down!" Crystal laughed.

"Aren't you missing a word?"

"Please! Put me down please." Crystal ran over to Idun as Agdar rested her down.

"Since we have no duties to do, I was thinking that how about we do something." Idun said. "Crystal, have anything in mind?"

"Uh…a picnic!"

"That's a wonderful idea. How about the hill where you can see the whole town from there?"

"Sure, that's sounds nice. Let's go." Agdar said as they walked to the door.

"Wait!" Crystal shouted before she ran back to the couch and grabbed her stuffed rabbit. "Now, let's go."

Soon after they were on the hill, Idun and Agdar were lying down on the blanket while Crystal stuffed her mouth full of chocolates. When Crystal was finished stuffing her mouth full of chocolates, she laid down in between them with her stuffed rabbit until she fell asleep. In a distance, Agdar heard the sound of an explosion.

"Did you hear that Idun?"

"Hear what?"

"An explosion."

"Nope." Agdar went over to his horse and took out his sword. A muffled scream alerted him, when he turned around he saw five men. One of them who goes by the name Jackson had one of hand on Idun's mouth and the other held a knife to her throat. The second one did the same to Crystal.

"Drop the sword and no one gets hurt." Jackson said. Agdar didn't drop the sword. Jackson moved the knife closer to her neck, Idun looked at Agdar while tears streamed down her cheeks. He dropped the sword.

"Move away from it." He walked away from the sword until it was in the middle of the space between them.

"I'm far away from the sword, now put them down."

"I'm afraid there has been some minor changes. David, you know what to do." David nodded, he removed his hand from her mouth and dropped the knife. He held Crystal by her dress and threw her into the deeper parts of the forest in which she hit her head on a rock, making her lose consciousness. Idun's scream was muffled by the hand on her mouth, she tried to get out of his grip but stopped when Jackson pressed the knife against her skin, making it bleed.

"Now be a good little girl and stay over there." Jackson tossed her over by a tree, making her land awkwardly and sprain her ankle in the progress. Before Agdar could've ran over to her, one tried to attack him but missed. He ran over to his sword and grabbed it, stopping the sword that was going to cut his head clean off. The fight lasted for almost two hours.

It was at last finished, all the attackers were unconscious and badly injured, of course Agdar was injured but not as bad as the attackers. He ran over to Idun as he saw her trying to get up, He helped her up.

"Where's Crystal?" Idun asked, as worry filled her voice.

"I don't know but we can't look for her now, we don't have any lanterns. As soon as we get back home, I'll send out a search party to go look for her." Agdar said, Idun nodded. He helped her got onto his horse and Agdar steered two horses back home.


Deeper down in the forest, crystal awoke and started to walk about the forest, looking for her parents. She made a wrong turn and fell down a hill, she stopped at the end of the hill, looking around she saw a ship. It stopped in front of her and two figures walked down from it and stood in front of her.

"Hi there little one." The female one kneeled down to her height.

"H-hi." Crystal stuttered.

"What's your name?"

"M-my na-name's C-Crystal, yours?"

"My name is Emerald, Queen Emerald of Icelandia. Crystal, what a nice name. Where are your parents?" Emerald said.

"I-I can't r-remember who they are." Tears started to form in Crystal's eyes.

"Don't cry, do you remember where you live?"

"N-no."

"Why don't you stay with us." Emerald suggested.

"R-really." Crystal looked at Emerald, her sapphire eyes shining in the moon light.

"Sure. From now on, we're your parents alright."

"Okay. Who's that." Crystal indicated to the other person.

"Oh him? Smith come over here." Smith walked over to them and kneel down to Crystal's height.

"Hi there Crystal. I'm your new father now." Smith said.

"Okay."

"Let's go home." They boarded the boat and headed to Icelandia.


"What do you mean they can't find her!" Idun shouted.

"I don't know, they said that they searched the whole area and more but there wasn't any sign of her." Agdar sighed and walked towards her by the window. They looked at the aurora which lighted up the night sky.

"I hope they find her soon." Agdar said.

"Me too." Idun hugged him, she took a long glance at the picture of Crystal. Her brunette hair, sapphire eyes and her toothy grin made her tear up by just looking at it. She saw her pink stuffed rabbit in the picture and moved her gaze over to the bed where the rabbit lays. Oh how she wished that this was only a dream and she would be waking up from it anytime soon.

"Well let's go to bed, hopefully they might have some clue as to where she has been." Agdar said and Idun nodded. He helped her into bed then got in afterwards, he turned to look at Idun. She was clutching the stuffed rabbit close to her chest while tears ran down her cheeks. Agdar pulled her into a hug and they stayed like that until they both fell asleep.


Crystal, Emerald and Smith came off the boat and were now heading towards the castle. Crystal gaze at the different colours of the town. The guards wearing their red and black uniform, villagers wear multiples colours of blue, green, white and many more. They stopped in front of the castle's gates, the decorations on the gate was all gold. Once it opened and they entered the castle, they were greeted with a loud crying sound. Crystal saw Emerald and Smith ran upstairs, soon after she decided to follow them. She saw them entered a room, when Crystal entered the room, she saw Emerald holding a baby and another person sleeping on one of the chairs.

"Uh…Mama, who are they?"

"Well since your part of the family now, meet your little sisters, Grace and Sophie ." Emerald said.

"C-can I hold her?" Emerald nodded, Crystal sat on the bed and took Sophie into her arms. Sophie's crying quieted down until it stopped, Crystal soon realized what Sophie was staring at. Sophie was staring at her necklace, she then grabbed the necklace with her tiny hand and started playing with it. Sophie after looks up at Crystal and smiled.

"See, she likes you already. I can tell you two are going to be best of friends when you're older."

"Yes we will, Papa?"

"Yes." Smith said.

"Where will I sleep?" Crystal asked.

"Are you okay with the idea of sleeping in your own room?" Smith asked.

"Sure, I guess."

"Well in that case, I have the perfect room for you." Emerald took Sophie from her and watched Crystal ran out the door. Crystal's room was three room away from Smith and Emerald's room.

"Wow, it's so huge." Crystal looked around as she stepped in the room, Crystal yawned.

"Are you tired already?"

"Uh huh." She climbed into bed.

"Well good night or perhaps, good morning. Sleep well." Smith walked over to the door.

"Wait, I'm missing something."

"What's that?"

"I always go to sleep with an stuffed animal."

"Wait, right here." Smith walked into the wardrobe and pulled out a big light blue teddy bear with a white muzzle. "There you go." He handed her the bear.

"It amazing…well…good night." Crystal said in between yawns.

"Sweet dreams." Smith walked out the door.


*Present*

"Sophie!" Grace yelled from down the hall.

"I'm right here, no need to shout." Sophie said. "What do you need?"

"I need you to explain why my dress is destroyed."

"I don't know, why do you assume it's me anyway?"

"I don't know, maybe it's because you wouldn't keep out of my room." Grace crossed her arms.

"Yes but I didn't interfered with your precious dress for the ball that is coming up." Sophie sighed.

"But that doesn't mean you didn't destroyed my dress." Grace said.

"For the last time, I did not ruin your dress." Crystal walked down the halls, turning the corner, she saw Sophie and Grace bickering. She sighed and walked toward them.

"Would you two stop. Sophie didn't ruin your dress, I did."

"What? Crystal why?" Grace whined.

"It was an accident, that why I went to town and got you this." Crystal pulled out a pink dress out of one of the bags.

"It's pink! Thanks Crystal." Grace squealed and ran off with it.

"So immature." Sophie said.

"I bought this for you." She took out a red dress and handed it to Sophie.

"It's red! Better than the one I chose earlier on." Sophie hugged Crystal before running towards her room. Crystal smiled at her when she felt a hand on her shoulder. Crystal turned around and saw Emerald.

"Hi Mama." Crystal said.

"Hey Crystal, ready for the ball next week?" Emerald asked.

"Yep, a lot of kingdoms are going to be there."

"Even your real family." Emerald thought out loud.

"What?"

"What I mean was…you see…they…are your real family."

"What kingdom?"

"Arendelle." Crystal couldn't believe it, the kingdom, she has been negotiating trademarks with was her home.

"So why didn't you tell me when I was younger?" Crystal was starting to get mad.

"Well you see, Sophie and Grace thought you were their sister do I decided not to tell you then, cause if I did. It would've broken their hearts."

"True, true. When am I going to meet them?"

"During the ball we're having." Emerald said.

"Okay, might as well start giving out the invites."

"Will you need any help with those?"

"Sure I don't mind the company." Emerald and Crystal walked back to Crystal's study.


*Arendelle*

Elsa and Anna sat down on Anna's bed, "So, Elsa when will we be able to have some fun again?"

"I'm not sure Anna." Elsa said. "Maybe next week?"

"I guess. You know what would've been cool." Anna said.

"What?"

"Having an older sister."

"Anna, you have one right here." Elsa said.

"Not what I meant, I meant, it would've been great if we both had an older sister by means, older than both of us. That way she can be Queen and you can be a Princess, in which we can do anything at any time since we have no work to do."

"Put it that way, I'm liking it. Now I wish I had an older sister."

"Me too." Anna said as they both walked out of Anna's room. Hoping that they really did have one. Little that they did not know that they already have an older sister just waiting to be discovered.
