Naughty Naughty Part 1
Mim sat in an armchair in her room at the North Pole. The room had white walls and a canopy bed. One wall was a giant window, so she could be both outdoors and indoors. Gotta be balanced right? Another wall was a giant mirror. The floor had a black wood flooring. The only pieces of furniture were her bed, chair and desk. Everything was detailed in black and white, her signature colors. But do not think that the room was boring. For while there was little furniture, the walls had pictures and paintings filled with color. They were everywhere. There was one with her and Jack flying, the Guardians opening Christmas presents by Jack's lake, and one of the Lady Dark.
In the armchair, Mim was reading a book, with Jack sitting on her windowsill listening while making flurries outside. The month was May and 3 months had past since Mim had freed Lady Dark and stopped Pitch from creating a permanent solar eclipse. Mim read aloud with Jack sometimes. The world was uneventful right now, and the Guardians had returned to some semblance of normalcy.
"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." She read.
"How does that make sense? How can something be more equal?" Jack piped up. The sun out side was rising for about and hour before it set again. The 6 months of darkness in the North Pole were coming to an end.
"I'm not quite sure. This was the summer reading I had before I became a spirit. It looked interesting enough." Mim replied as she became a redhead with golden clothing, for the rising sun. She frowned at the cover for a second before tossing the book aside. By copying a telekinesis power, she floated it to her desk.
"What do you say to us going and having some fun?" Jack called distantly. Mim turned to see him floating outside her giant window on her balcony. He jumped off backward and dropped out of sight.
"Oh no you don't!" She yelled after him. Taking a running start, she sprinted out her window and dove over the balcony railing as if she were diving into a body of water. She could see Jack ahead of her. She knew she couldn't catch up. Physics ya know? But instead she concentrated and turned into a blazing girl of fire. Shooting blast down, she forced Jack to divert his path. Then she tackled him!
They laughed in the snow as they tumbled head over heels until they hit a glacier. The laughter didn't stop for another 15 minutes, to the point where they struggled to draw breath. Jack calmed down first.
It was a question Mim heard often. Ever since Dark had been defeated, Jack had been working with Mim to hone her ice powers. The catch with Mim was that she could never be as skilled as the person she copied. But she could learn on her own. Jack sat across from her and formed a large ball of solid ice. Her goal was to make a copy of it. Everyday the ball got bigger. On the first day it was no bigger than a marble. Today it was the size of a bowling ball.
Mim's hair turned white and her eyes turned blue. Holding out her hands, she focused on cold and coldness. Ice and snow and frost and chills. A ball formed in her hands and grew very slowly. It almost reached the size of Jack's but it began to shake.
"C'mon, you can do it. Focus on winter emotions." Jack coaxed.
Okay! Cool serenity...inner warmth with outer cold...
The ball grew the last inch or so in diameter. Jack grinned. He took both of them and then dropped them. His remained solid, but hers shattered. She sighed and looked at the snow.
"Hey, it's cool! You'll get it next time." Jack encouraged.
"That's the third time we've done a ball that size, Jack!" Mim said, exasperated. Jack thought for a moment.
"I know what will cheer you up! TARGET PRACTICE!"
That got Mim's attention. She loved target practice. Jack formed a ton of targets, varying in size and height and distance. He formed some icicles and Mim did the same. The began to throw them at the targets. One of Jack's beat Mim's to a target making it shatter. but Mim got revenge by catching one of Jack's icicles in flight with her own breaking it! Things escalated and they were soon in all out battle. Ice King vs. his copycat queen! He had mastery of the element, but she was creative and soon had a great snow catapult that could bury him in snow.
They got so wrapped up in their game that hours passed until a snowball forced them to look up and see the northern lights.
Mim grew wings, and grabbed Jacks hands in the snow. Flinging him into the air, they soared to the Workshop doors. Before they could enter the Globe room Jack grabbed Mim around her waist. In the hall just outside, he held onto her and leaned against the wall. He kissed her and for a few minutes she allowed him to get it for free.
"They'll be looking for us."
"They can wait." Jack responded.
Mim cocked and eyebrow and kissed him this time.
"OI! Lovebirds! You're late!" Bunny yanked them apart by the hoods on their clothes and escorted them inside. Bunny had loosened up a bit but he still ratted on Jack for getting a girlfriend. Jack had retorted by saying Bunny was jealous. Mim ended up shutting them up. But not with powers. She did it the good old' fashioned way: with duct-tape. Bunny's mouth was still a little thin on fur.
"What's the big news North?" Tooth called. A group of six fairies had arrived with her. Baby Tooth flew over to greet Jack and Mim. Mim had to transform into a partial tooth fairy just to understand her.
"We have minor disturbance in Central Park. Groups of kids are becoming naughty and we don't know why."
"Were they always naughty mate? Or is this a sudden thing?" Bunny asked.
"All these children were on "NICE" list. Now they act badly. Some are teens." North countered.
"Well, it sounds interesting! Let's check it out!" Mim said, excited for a small brawl.
All the Guardians headed out in their different ways. Tooth flew at high speeds and Jack rode the winds. Bunny jumped to the ground and tunneled into the earth. Sandy was hopping a ride on a large dreamsand pterodactyl. North of course had the sleigh. Mim went mermaid and took to the sea. Bunny would usually arrive first. Then Jack and Mim and Tooth, followed by Sandy and North.
Mim joined a pod of dolphins as they hopped from the waves. Her tail copied the deep cerulean blue of the waters as she sped south. Soon she was entering American waters and she hopped out of the waters under the Brooklyn Bridge and flew the rest of the way to Central Park.
She caught up with Tooth and they flew the rest of the way together. Conversation turned to life and plans.
"As the only girls in the group, we should do something sometime." Tooth suggested.
"I would love to! What to do though?" Mim responded.
"Hmmm...OH we could go memory hopping!"
"What's memory hopping?" Mim inquired.
"Oh it's so much fun. You get to go live in some memories. I found a great memory of a spa day!"
"I'm assuming this is like a substitute for not actually being able to go out and do this stuff, right?" Mim said smiling.
"Kind of!" Tooth said and they giggled.
A/N: Yay the beginning of Volume II! I'm excited and I drew the cover photo. It's all on deviantart under my fanfic username. This one will be more short stories and stuff. I love suggestions! Reviews anyone?
