The Big Ten

(3)

~Jack Frost~

I laughed as I skated over the large and deep pond that was becoming ice with my touch. This is why I loved my powers. Clutching my staff in my hands I held I above my head to cast it in a small circle that made a light snowfall come down to dust the freshly frozen pond. I laughed more and sighed in admiration of my ice powers.

“Jack!” The bellowing voice of North called and I looked up seeing a flying sleigh being tugged by reindeer. I smiled seeing him land with Bunnymund clinging in pure fear to the side of it.

“I’m tellin’ ya mate I’ll never get used to that. Next time I’ll use the tunnels!” He said and glared at North making him and I chuckle. I skated over to them and walked on to the side of the sledge to shake his large hand.

“Good to see you, friend,” he stated in his strong Russian accent and I tilted my head to him.

“Hey Jack!” the happy voice of tooth called as she flew over to me and nearly tackled me into a hug.

“Hey Tooth,” I said and hugged her back. I then felt something pecking at the back of my head. I let go of tooth then looked behind me to see handmade out of sand waving at me then I followed the trail of sand down to my friend the Sandman. “Sandy!” I exclaimed then he held out the sand hand for me to shake. He shook then tilted his head to me smiling.

“G’day Frost,” Bunnymund said, I gave him a wave then I turned around seeing little Baby Tooth buzzing next to my head.

“Baby tooth!” I exclaimed and grinned. She shyly waved at me and I waved back then scratched the side of her head with my index finger. “It’s so good to see you guys,” I said looking around at their smiling faces. I had been away for a week or two at where I lived before I became Jack Frost because I wanted to have some time to think about my past and about me being a guardian. But now that they were here I was ready.

“It is good to see you too Jack,” North said with a chuckle while he rested his hands on his belt.

“So you ready to join us mate?” Bunny asked and I nodded.

“Yeah, I’m ready! So what are we gonna do?” I asked grinning like a six-year-old.

“Well, we haven’t had any missions but-” North began but he was stopped when a package dropped like a stone in front of him making us all jump back in shock.

“Crikey!” Bunny yelled and threw a boomerang at it.

“What is that?!” Tooth yelled while she cuddled a scared baby tooth. I was floating above them with my staff pointed at it.

“It’s a package,” I stated floating back down to the ground. I poked the package that had been punctured by bunny’s boomerang to reveal a letter in the box. It had the letters ‘AVL’ stamped on the front of it. I picked it up and examined it seeing if it had any more surprises. Thankfully it didn’t so I opened the letter then my eyes went wide. “Whoa, there’s a lot of words here,” I said and squinted my eyes trying to read the big words that were written in tiny font.

“Let me see,” North’s voice demanded and I handed him the letter for him to read with his eyebrows in a frown. “The Anti-Villain league is in need of our help,” North said and I frowned resting my staff on my shoulder with my arms draping over it.

“What the neck is the Anti-Villain league and what do they want with us?” I asked North while he and Bunnymund looked over it.

“The Anti-Villain league are a secret agency that works against bad guys. We worked with them a few years ago. They even offered us help deal with Pitch in the past.” North explained with a cheery voice that made him Santa.

“Is it about him? Or something worse?” I asked worried but Bunny shook his head playfully throwing his boomerang up into the air and catching it.

“They want us to help them in a big top-secret mission,” North said moving the letter from in front of him to reveal a frowning face. “It must be serious,” he said and we all nodded.

“Are we gonna go?” Tooth asked and North nodded.

“We have to mate, it’s the right thing to do,” Bunny said and I nodded as well.

“Right,” I said looking around at the nodding faces of my fellow guardians.
