Chapter 8: The Other Guardians
"So, where are you going to do your next snow day at?"
[Name] was walking alongside Jack Frost in the park, she recently heard of his back story, and now she refused to leave his side. She didn't want him to be lonely like he did those last three hundred years before she met him.
Jack shrugged, "I'm not sure, I don't even know if I want to leave this town."
"But you have to give snow days! It's your job as a guardian, you know, to spread joy to the children?"
Jack scratched the back of his neck and tapped his staff along the side of park benches. "Well, I don't know how long it'd be until I came back here if I did… And last time I went to give out snow days and came back you were angry at me."
"Well for one, you didn't tell me you were going out for a while. And two, you did leave suddenly. And finally, you did kind of tell me you would never leave me the day before that." [Name] protested.
Jack chuckled a little at himself, "I suppose that's true. But it's almost spring; I'm sure that the world could go without a few snow days."
[Name] stared at Jack and sighed, "I don't want to keep you from your job."
"Yes I am. We both know it."
Jack slowed down a bit, and [Name] matched his pace. "Okay, it may be true I don't want to leave you to go make snow and have fun times. But, I was actually thinking of taking you to meet the other guardians."
[Name] stopped and stared at Jack, then began to jump up and down excitedly, squealing quietly. "Really!?"
"Yeah, they all said it'd be fine."
[Name] squealed a bit louder and jumped onto Jack, hugging him tightly. "Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!" Jack couldn't help but grin at her excitement.
[Name] finally jumped off of him, and tried her best to calm down, but couldn't wipe the smile off of her face. "When are we going?"
"Tomorrow, if you can come up with an excuse for your mom to let you leave for a while."
[Name] nodded and turned around, beginning to run home without any hesitation.
Jack looked down at the ground and chuckled once again, before lifting up into the air to follow the excited [Name].
