"What did I ever do to you? Why do you shut me out? Why do you shut the world out?"
"That's enough, Anna."
"I can't live like this anymore!"
She hadn't meant to say it, but it was out. The way she felt was out, dropped like a bag of piping hot popcorn. Her older sister looked at her, a look of pain and regret.
Elsa looked at her with a look of pain and regret. It was obvious there was something she didn't know.
Anna hadn't been expecting that. She felt her heart break apart and hot tears pricking at her eyes. She swallowed down sobs as she let her answer escape.
"Fine. Maybe I will."
She pushed past her sister and weaved through the crowd outside.
"Anna, wait! I didn't mean -"
She didn't hear the rest, as the cheering of the crowds had drowned Elsa's words out. Soon enough, she was free of the crowd, and let the tears escape.
Hans had followed her, and put his hand on her shoulder. "Are you sure you want to be so hasty?"
Anna shrugged his hand off. "Please just leave me alone."
She heard what sounded like an exasperated sigh from her fiancee, and he walked off. Anna pulled her knees up to her chest and began to sob.
Elsa tried to follow her sister, but when the crowds refused to let her through eventually she hid back inside the castle, ordering the doors to be closed. She hid inside her room, which she had been confined inside for so long.
It's better this way, right? Now I can leave this room and be around the castle, I'll be alone . . .
She couldn't stop the pain, though.
So she didn't notice when it began to snow outside.
