Chapter 1

No body’s point of view

It's near the end of fall and city shops have prepared for Christmas time. Children race to the park to do what they like to do at this time of year. Mostly the children would play in the park, but this particular day they met by the statue of a civil war veteran and sat and waited to listen to stories.

Who is the person that tells the children stories? That would be Raina Evarwood, an orphan teenager who has believed in the Guardians far longer than anyone her age. Usually the case was that teenagers would stop believing in such nonsense the moment their parents told them none of it was ever real. This wasn't the case for Raina and this was one of the reasons she was adored by the children.

Raina was different than most orphans, despite the fact of her belief in the Guardians existence. She didn’t live in the orphanage like most orphans, but instead lived in a place she alone could find. She liked to come to the park the same time as the children and wait for them by the statue of civil war veteran.

She liked to wear jeans, a different hoodie during each season, and keep her hair in a pony tail. Due to it being fall, her hoodie was green and her eyes and hair was brown. Only one season was when she never changed her appearance and that was winter. She couldn't explain why nothing about her changes during this season even if she was asked. Was she a guardian? Nobody knows. If she was a guardian, what power did she have? That is explained later on in the story.

“Tell us Santa's story!” A little brunette girl exclaims in excitement.

A little red headed boy crosses his arms and replies “I love Santa, but we listen to the same story every time.”

“Guys, calm yourselves the story isn't of Santa this time.” Raina says to the children leaving some of them curious.

“What story are you going to tell us Raina?” A blonde headed boy asks.

“I'm going to tell you the story of a boy named Jack Frost.” Raina answers bringing some excitement to the children, for they've heard of Jack Frost, but didn't know

Jack Frost’s point of view

It’s been a year since Pitch had been defeated and I became a Guardian. I guess you can say that I haven’t changed a whole lot, except for the fact that I'm a Guardian and kids can see me. I have taken my Guardian duties responsibly, most of the time, and have taken a little bit of an advantage at being seen by children. What can I say, I like kids, maybe more than I like snowball fights. I have been trying to stop bringing blizzard’s to the world, for North’s and Bunny’s sake, and had made myself stay in Antarctica whenever Easter comes so I don't start another war between Bunny and I.

So what am I doing momentarily? I'm looking for children to play with. I started looking for my friend Jamie, but I couldn’t find him. So I decided to go look for children somewhere else.

I was minding my own business, until I heard it, a voice saying my name. As usual, I became curious and decided to go look for the person who said my name. The voice led me to a park, where the only people there were a bunch of kids who all sat by a statue. Amongst the kids, was a girl who looked to be my age if I was still mortal. Getting closer, it appeared to me that she looked to be telling a story. The story could've been about anyone, but then I heard my name and I was then rooted to the spot I stood. I didn’t really think that the girl really knew anything about me, but I decided to listen.

Raina’s point of View

“Long ago in a small village, lived a boy named Jack. At the time, Jack was an ordinary boy, but he wouldn’t stay that way. Jack had a sister he would go ice skating with, but one day the ice began to crack under their feet. He knew that to save his sister, he had to use his staff to pull her from the ice. As he did so, he fell into the water and the last thing he heard was his sister screaming his name. Seeing this, the Man on the Moon noticed Jack and saw something special inside him, and so he turned him into Jack Frost. He called him Jack Frost because he had the ability to control winter. Excited with his new ability, Jack then learned he could also use his staff to fly. Taking his staff, he then flew to his village. However, he soon discovered that no one could see him and he had no memories of his past until one special day that changed him for good." Raina tells the story and finishes like she had finished a book.

“What was the special day?” A blonde girl asks.

“Ah ah ah, that will be for another time. You should all go home or your parents will worry.” Raina answers and the children complained, but as they walked away, they all talked of the story they heard.

Raina too stood to leave and she walked away to the place she alone knows exists.

Jack Frost’s Point of View

I watched her leave, awestruck over how she knew my story. I wanted to find out how she knew and so I followed her. I kept to the shadows, in case she was able to see me, and I followed her until we came across an old wooden fence. She pulled on one of the fencing and snuck through. I followed her and what I found, left me speechless.
