The Snow tapped lightly against the windows of the castle.
Eleanor watched it sighing. It had been a while since Danny had gone, not long but a while...
She still had that glint of fun in her eyes but now it was distant. Her brother walked into the room. "El?" He was older and had grown up to be a handsome young prince.
Eleanor shook her head, concentrating. She was distracted by the snow outside.
She turned round to face her brother. "He won't come back will he?" She was biting her lip and her eyes glistened with tears. He scooped her into his arms and hugged her. "Hey, we have each other right?"
She nodded, her tears muffled in her brothers coat. "But it's not the same Dylan..." She cried.
He looked through the window at the snow behind El. "I know.." He replied quietly.
Elsa had told the children. They needed to know after all. He was their brother
Anna sat beside her in a room with a couch and a sofa. They watched the fire crackle before them. "Um, Elsa? Are you ok?" She asked looking anxiously at her sister.
Elsa opened her eyes. "Honestly, no but you don't need to know about my troubles."
Anna looked at her. "Elsa, you WILL find him.." She smiled taking Elsa's hand.
"Thank you, Anna." Elsa forced a smile.
With that Anna put on her mittens and walked out into the courtyard. She found Elise, Dylan and El sitting outside on a bench.
They smiled and waved as she approached them. "Gee guys, cold doesn't bother you huh?" Anna exclaimed. They laughed and stood up.
"You need to go." Said Anna now in a serious tone.
"What?" Dylan asked, confused.
"Go after Danny." Anna replied.
"Alone?!, Anna it's a snowstorm out there, we'll never find him!" Elise cried.
"I know where he could be..." Eleanor whispered.
"What about mum?" Dylan asked.
Anna put her hands on his shoulder. "I have told Eric. He will tell Elsa OK?"
"it's still dangerous." Elise informed them.
"Look, This is the only way.. Your father told me." Anna sighed. "He wouldn't put you in danger" Her smile returned. "Dylan will protect you."
They all nodded. "We can do this." Dylan grinned. "We're older now." Elise added "More responsible too!"
After they were all dressed up head to toe in winter clothes, they said goodbye to Anna and Kristoff and were on their way.
Little did they know what they were heading into.
