A Promise To Keep

By Stagetime1

Fantasy / Romance

Chapter 1

Jack and Elsa walked together over the frozen fountain each sliding gracefully across the ice. Jack grabbed a hold of Elsa's hand and twirled her. Elsa, almost losing her balance, “Don't worry,” he said grabbing her waist and pressing her up against him. “I got you.” He said giving her a kiss.

Elsa smiled. “Is that a promise?” She asked biting her lip.

Jack nuzzled her. “A promise to keep.” He said lovingly. Jack had asked Elsa to go out with him almost three years ago. He knows it time for him to step it up. He twirled her again, Elsa giggled. Jack reached in his pocket, a little velvet box. “Speaking of promises to keep...” He said getting down on one knee. He opened the velvet box just as she turned around. 29 carrot diamond ring glistened inside the box. Elsa gasped with delight. She clasped her hands together and pressed them together. “Will you keep the best promise of all, with me by your side.” Jack said.

Elsa tackled Jack. “Yes, yes yes!” She yelled. “Yes.” Her and Jack hit the ice hard.

Jack laughed as Elsa crushed him. Elsa laughed and tucked strands of her braid behind her ear as she sat up. Jack sat up and placed the ring on her left hand. She squeaked as she felt the metal from the ring.

About a year later Elsa stood in front of the mirror in a beautiful a line silhouette fit and flare trumpet wedding dress covered in sparkling ice crystals. A train falling from her shoulders. See through lace sleeves covering her arms. She tensed as Anna pulled her hair back. Anna was dressed in a navy blue sparkle one shoulder tea length maid of honor dress. The shoulder fabric hanging down her back. A bright sparkle broach pinned to her shoulder. Anna stared admiringly at her older sister. “You look beautiful, Elsa. I know mom would be crying and dad would be interrogating Jack about the future if they were here.” Anna said setting her head on sisters shoulder.

Elsa nervously laughed as she wiped a tear from her eyes. “Thanks Anna, for everything.” Elsa said turning to her and embraced her.

Anna gasped. “Oh. I almost forgot.” Anna said running over to a chair where her purse sat. “You still need something blue.” Anna said digging through her purse. She grabbed a blue crystal flower.

Elsa gasped when she saw it. “Anna, its beautiful. Mom's flower she gave you before she left.” Elsa held it in her hand carefully with a smile which faded. “I can't take it. Its yours.”

Anna grabbed it from her and slipped it into Elsa's hair above her ear. “Something borrowed then.” Anna said.

Rapunzel came through the door, wearing a light blue version of Anna's dress.
“Anna. Come on, were on.” Rapunzel said. She stopped dead in her tracks. “Oh my goodness gracious. Elsa! You look beautiful.” Elsa blushed looking down at the dress. “He's one lucky guy.” Rapunzel said.

“Yes he is.” Rapunzel's dad said as he walked into the room. “Come on girls, my wife will be mad if this doesn't go according to plan.”

“Here we go!” Anna and Rapunzel grabbed their brochette of flowers and squealed as the left to join the other brides maids.

Elsa giggles as they scurry away before she hugs her uncle. “Thank you so much for being here.” She said.

“It's the least I could do.” He said placing his hands on her shoulders. “I know your father would want to walk you down the isle if he could. I'm glad I could help out.” He said placing a kiss on the top of her forehead. He wipes a tear from his face. “We better get into place.” He said handing Elsa her brochette of flowers. Pale blue lilies, bright blue roses with spits of white baby's breath everywhere. The stems tied together with a silk white ribbon. White and blue glitter sprayed over them.

Elsa gasped. “My veil.” She said pointing to a tiara. He placed it on top of her head. A pale blue see through sparkle veil fell over her face and draped behind her.

Elsa took a deep breath. “Don't be nervous.” He said as they took their positions. “Just don't trip.” He said with a laugh. Elsa huffed and smacked him in the stomach. The both laughed as the music began to play. “Here we go.” He said as he pushed open the door.

Elsa took a deep breath as everyone stood from their seats. All eyes on her. She looked up at the alter decked out with white and blue roses. Her eyes fell upon Jack and all her fears fade away. He stood before her. He was dressed in a white royal coat with gold details. He had blue pants on.

'She looks absolutely beautiful.' Jack thought. 'how could a boy like me be so lucky.' He stared at Elsa with stars in his eyes.

Kristoff, his best men, nudged Jack in the stomach. “Don't screw it up dude.” Kristoff whispered to Jack.

When Elsa finally reached the alter and turned toward him. Jack realized he hadn't been breathing. Jack and Elsa locked their hands together in front of the pastor. Next to Jack stood Kristoff, Flynn, and Hiro.

On Elsa's side stood Anna, Rapunzel, And Merida. As the pastor spoke Jack's icy blue eyes stared into Elsa's frozen blue eyes. When it came time to say their vows Elsa started first. “Every since I meet you, life has been happier.” She said choking on her tears of happiness. “I use to be afraid to show off my powers, I use to be afraid of everyone. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with you. So you better not mess it up.” Elsa laughed as a quiet laugh crept over the guests.

Jack laughed. “I'll try not to.” He said with a smile. “I am so looking forward to settling down with you. The promises that we kept as an individual are now becoming our secrets. And I am ready to keep the greatest secret of all time, your heart.” He said to Elsa. “And that is a promise to keep.”

“And now you may kiss the bride.” The pastor said. The crowd cheered as their lips touched.
