Jack Frost’s Point of View

What was behind the fence looked to me like another world. The grass was greener than I had ever seen before, butterflies of all kinds flew around, and the place looked to be in the middle of three of the seasons. I noticed a giant Redwood tree with a door and windows on a small bit of land. A pond surrounded the tree and the one way for you to get across was to walk over these stepping stones. On the small bit of land was a wooden table that you would see in the parks and a swing hanging from one of the branches. I was in awe with this place and I didn’t even notice the girl standing behind me.

“Excuse me, what are you doing here?” A voice asks and I yelled, literally, and turned to find Raina.

Raina’s Point of View

I knew who the person was, but that didn’t stop me from asking him my question. Jack Frost stared at me in shock and I tried my best to keep my own internal shock hidden as I never thought I would ever be paid a visit by a Guardian. After all, I knew they didn’t want to be seen by anyone.

“Are you going to leave your mouth open or will you tell me what do you want?” I ask, becoming amused at seeing his reaction.

“Sorry, my name is Jack.” Jack Frost managed to say.

I reply, “I know who you are Jack Frost.” and jaw dropped.

“How do you know who I am?”

I circled him, “I know things.” and smiled at his discomfort.

“If you know things, maybe you can tell me the reason I followed you.” He says, sarcastically with a smirk.

I answer with a smirk of my own, “You heard me telling the kids your story and you decided to follow me to find out how I knew it.” and stopped my circling.

“Yea, how-” He began, but I interrupted him.

“How I knew your story?” I ask, which he nodded. “Like I said, I know things. Alright I answered your questions so can you please leave so I can go and get some sleep?"

"It's still daylight out." He states.

Walking away, "Every girl needs a nap after telling a story about a Guardian, especially one like yours."

"I feel like that was an insult!" I heard him say, which made me laugh.

Jack Frost’s Point of View

I watched her walk away and was going to leave, but I saw her grab something off the ground. It turned out to be a staff. I haven't ever seen a staff like this one and I wanted to get a closer look at it, I went after her.

“Wait stop! Where did you get that?” I ask and pointed to the staff.

“What this, I’ve had it ever since I could remember.” Raina replies, holding out the staff so I could get a better look.

The staff was a golden color, with very small vines wrapped around it, and flowers going down the vines. The top looked like the bottom of a tree, except for the lack of roots. It also looked like the top is missing something, but I couldn’t place my finger on what it could be.

“It looks like it’s missing something. I know, because I've wondered about it for a very long time, but I’m as clueless as you are.” Raina answers my thoughts.

“How come?” I ask.

“I don’t know, I can’t remember why. The only thing I remember of my past is finding myself in a chasm in Antarctica and feeling like I've lost a fight.” She answers, looking embarrassed that she couldn’t tell me anything.

“Maybe... I could help you figure it out.” I say, which made her looking at me as if to say 'Yeah Right'. “I’m serious! I know what it’s like to not being able to remember anything, which you probably already know."

Her expression told me that she did and wasn’t sure if she can get help. I went through the same experience as she did, except the cause may be different, and I do feel like I can help her. She looked at my face to see if I was lying. Seeing that I wasn't, she sighed.

“Alright you can help, but I do think this is a bad idea.” She relents, and I chuckle at that statement.

“Awe come on, it'll be a lot of fun! Plus you are getting help from a Guardian." I encourage.

"A highly dysfunctional Guardian!" She protests.

"Who else will make the journey to bringing your memories back more interesting?"

"Maybe the Tooth Fairy or Sandman."

I place a hand to my heart, pretending I was hurt by her words "Ouch Raina, you wound me deep."

"Don't you have any place to be?" She didn't believe me.

I began floating in the air and began my goodbyes, "Farewell lady Raina."

“Until we meet again Jack.” She says and heads back to her tree house.

I flew away and flew to the place I’m sure I can get some answers about Raina, the North Pole.
