Eternal Sleep

The North wind whistled as it carried Jack across the world. It howled and tiny pinpricks of snow pelted his face. About half an hour ago he had seen the Aurora Borealis spread across the sky. Normally he wouldn't mind visiting the pole, but this was one time he was annoyed about being interrupted.

Jack had been having a snowball fight with Jamie, and his friends. He didn't get to play with him very much because school(He had once visited Jamie at school. It hadn't ended well). Jamie was on spring break and Jack had made it snow. He knew that the Easter Kangaroo was going to lecture him later, but it had been worth it.

He arrived at the North Pole and flew in through an open window.

"Ah, there he is" North called to him

"Finally" Bunny muttered. The Guardians were all sitting near a fireplace. Sandy waved to him, and Tooth greeted him and checked his teeth.

"So, North" Jack said after Tooth was satisfied with her examination "What you calling us here for. The Elves aren't on strike again, are they"

North scowled and the other's laughed. For some reason, unknown to anyone but themselves, the elves had decided to go on strike. North hadn't seen this as much of a problem until he realized that the elves made all of his deserts and food. He also soon found out that the Yeti's couldn't cook to save their lives(or their jobs in this case). After several burned trays of cookies, and one exploded kitchen, North had sent the Aurora Borealis to the sky in a panic.

Jack and everyone else had rushed to the Pole, afraid that some major catastrophe had occurred, Pitch was back, and/or belief had gone down drastically. When North had actually explained the problem, Jack had been torn between being annoyed and trying not to laugh. Sandy and Bunny hadn't made not laughing any easier, because they too were barely holding in chuckles.

Tooth also hadn't made it any easier, but not because of her amusement. She had been ticked off that North had used the Aurora Borealis for such an unimportant problem and she spent a good half hour yelling at him. Which was hilarious to watch, until she saw them laughing and started telling him, Bunny and Sandy off.

Jack had actually wanted to use the Aurora Borealis in a prank, but was waiting till everyone forgot about that incident.

"It is for real this time" North insisted "Manny called us all here. Someone is threatening them" He pointed to the globe.

"I don't see any problems, North" Jack said The globe looked fine to him, there were no drastic drops in the little lights.

"We were just talking about that, Mate" Bunny said "If you were here on time, you might have known that"

"Yeah,yeah" Jack said "So...what's the problem?"

"We don't know Jack" Tooth said anxiously "MIM's message was vague and like you said, we can't see any problems"

"It's not Pitch, is it?"

"Now, why is he always to blame" said an unfamiliar voice disdainfully "Pitch Black and his Nightmares always are getting more attention than me." All the Guardians besides Jack bolted up.

"Somnus!" North bellowed "Show yourself, you..." After that he started speaking in Russian, which although was a language Jack couldn't understand, he was pretty sure it wasn't anything nice.

"Now that wasn't very friendly" The voice said disapprovingly "And after all the trouble I went to give you a gift" A tall man with grey hair and piercing blue eyes stepped into view.

Jack raised his staff, but Somnus blew silver dust into their faces and Jack coughed. He tried to move forward to attack...but he was just too tired. The floor on the workshop was swaying and he toppled forward and everything went black.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,.
