1. Early Years

    Princess Jessica Frost of Arendelle was born in 1839, the same year that Jack Frost of Highvale and Princess Elsa of Arendelle married and were coronated King and Queen.

Jack was very happy to have a daughter, because that meant Jessica could be someone he could play with. Anna was 18, so she most likely wouldn’t play with him. Anna had given Jack a tip, saying that if he was seen playing with the kids outside the castle, he could easily ruin his reputation as king. Jack took her advice and didn’t play with the other kids. However, he tried his best to be with Jess as much as he could. He played with her, although it was very rare that he did that.

However, years went by, and he got busier and busier, where it came to a point where he was in his office from dawn to dusk. Any chance he had to play with Jess, he didn’t take, because he was too tired from paperwork to play for 5 minutes. However, hoping to make it up to her, he would put her to bed for Elsa sometimes.

Jessica was not very happy with the fact that neither her mother nor her father would play with her, and Anna was the only one to play with. When she was 10 years old, she asked her father (who was standing at a large bay window in the library), “Can I play with the village kids, Daddy?” Jack whirled around from the window and said, “Jess, you are not to question me to my face. Got it?”

“Uh huh.” Jessica had replied.

“The reason why I don’t want you playing with the village kids is because they’re below you in rank. Do you know what rank means?”

“No.”

“Rank means a position of sorts. Such as you’re a princess, you’re higher than they are. I don’t want you playing with anyone that is lower than you in position. That means you can play with Anna, but you can’t play with the villagers. Okay?”

“Okay, Daddy.”

Then Jessica ran off to find Anna.

When Elsa found out what Jack had said, she went to Jack’s office and knocked on the door.

“Who’s there?” Jack called out.

“It’s me.” Elsa replied.

“Come in.”

Elsa went in and stood at the desk and waited for Jack to finish reading the document  that he was holding (which was a peace treaty). When he finally looked up, Elsa said hello and Jack gestured to a chair in front of the desk, implying that she should sit down. Elsa did.

Jack then said,” What do you need?”

“I want to know why you said those things to Jess.”

“You mean why I don’t want her playing with the villagers?”

“Yes. You used to play with kids younger than you. That’s not much of a difference.”

“Okay? So?”

“She’s going to have to learn to communicate with people lower than her. When she turns to be 15, she will have to. You know that.”

“Exactly. 15 is 5 years away.”

“She has to learn now or she will never understand.”

Jack paused.

“Elsa, I can’t just change my mind out of nowhere. I don’t want her to play with the village kids.”

“Just because they’re below her in rank? Honestly, that’s not a good enough reason.”

“She seemed to get it.”

“Jack,she can’t just NOT talk to them! Besides, she’ll have to talk to them someday.”

“That ‘someday’ isn’t today.”

“Just let her play with the other kids!”

“Elsa, if I let her do that, her reputation will all go down.”

“Jack-”

“She can’t play with the village kids. She doesn’t have my permission-”

“Well, she has mine!”

With that, Elsa walked out.

Jack rubbed his temples. Getting Elsa to understand his point of view was going to be hard. He’d have to find another way.  

Just then, a servant came up.

“Your Majesty?”

Jack looked up from the desk.

“I’m sorry to disturb you, Your Majesty, but I have to tell you that Princess Jessica has a weapon, she is pointing it at King Pitch of Corona, saying-”

Just then, they could hear Jessica’s voice.

“I HAVE A KNIFE AND I’M NOT AFRAID TO USE IT, PITCH!”

“Jess!” Jack cried, and raced to the hallway, the servant following, where Jess was pointing a knife at Pitch Black, otherwise known as the Boogeyman.

“Jess, that’s an ally!”

“He is not an ally, he’s an enemy!”

“Jess-” Jack said, racing to her and trying to gently take the knife from her.

“He’s an enemy! He causes my nightmares! He’s the reason I haven’t slept in a week!”

“Jess-”

“I’ll get you, Pitch Black! Just you wait!”

She ran off without another word.

Jack watched her run down the hall, then turned to Pitch.

“I’m sorry about this, King Pitch. I never thought she would treat you like this. I’ll make sure she never handles another weapon so long as you’re here.”

“I accept your apologies, King Jackson. She is just a child. She will get over my stay soon enough.”

“Better yet, I’ll make sure she does not go near you. If she does, please tell me.”

“I will.”

With that, Jack ran to find Jessica, who was in the library, looking at a book full of cat photos. She seemed to love cats.

“Jessica, I need to talk to you,” Jack said as he sat down next to her.

“Jessica, what you did was not okay. It was not moral.”

“He’s not an ally.”

“He is an ally, Jessica.”

“If he is an ally, why would he be causing my nightmares?”
    “I thought I told you not to question me to my face.”

“He’s the one causing the nightmares!”

“Jessica, I don’t want you to go near him, and I will not let you hold another weapon so long as he is here.”

“How much longer will he be here?”

“What did I tell you?”

“Just tell me!”

“About 8 months.”

Jessica stared at him as if he were crazy.

“He was supposed to stay here for a year, I told you that, Jess. It’s been 4 months.”

“I do not like him.”

“I know you do not like him, you expressed that very clearly. Do not go near him, Jessica. I will know if you do.”

Jessica left, without another sound.

Elsa came in.

“Jack, don’t you think you’re being a bit hard on her? I mean, she can’t even question you to your face? Really?”

“I will make myself intimidating as I see necessary.”

“Just remember, she will not fear you.”

“I don’t want to be feared.”

“Good.”

Then came the night of the ball. Jessica and Anna were required to attend. Jessica refused to go if Pitch would be there.

“Jess, he’s going to be there.”

“Why, Anna? Why does he have to be there?”

“Because he’s a king.”

“Why is he the only one? Where’s the queen of Corona?”

“There isn’t one.”

“I refuse to come. I’ll become dangerous if I have to in order to avoid going to that ball.”

“Whatever you say, Jess.”

When Jack went to escort Jess, she threw herself against the door and Jack backed away, surprised. He was about to go in when she threw herself against the door again. This time, ice spikes came out of the door,and finally Jack called through the door, “I don’t have time for this nonsense of yours,Jessica.”

He heard her screaming and swiftly went inside, a big mistake on his part, because when he saw her, her mouth was covered in blood and she looked at him dangerously.

“Jess, what happened to you?”

She lunged, and he promptly shut the door just as she got there.

He had to get to Elsa. Now.

He was able to find Elsa and explained what had happened when she was about to ask where Jessica was.

“So, she lunged at you?”

“Her mouth was covered in blood! Nothing else was covered in blood like that!”

“We need the pastor. Anna, go get the pastor.”

“Okay, Elsa.”

As she went to get the pastor, Anna thought, This isn’t what I had in mind when she said she would become dangerous if she had to.

She returned with the pastor and they went to Jessica’s room. It was silent-a bad sign.

The pastor knocked three times and said, “Princess Jessica?”

No answer.

He went inside and when he did, he froze, and then took out a cross and held it in front of himself, saying a prayer as he slowly made his way toward Jessica.

Jessica lunged, and the pastor was able to keep her off. For a little while. Then, she knocked him down and ran up the wall(literally) and made her way into the ceiling and disappeared.

They could hear which direction she was going, and she was going in the direction of the ballroom-

Right where King Pitch was!

They quickly made their way toward the ballroom, and King Pitch seemed safe, for now.

Until Jessica fell through the ceiling and landed on Pitch!

She moved in a flash and grabbed Pitch, dragging him through the window.

“Jessica! Stop!”

Jessica didn’t stop. She disappeared, and so did Pitch from everyone’s sight. They could hear Pitch’s screams for help as Jack, Elsa, Anna, the guards, and the pastor swiftly went through the window to find Jessica pointing something at Pitch. On closer investigation, it was a sword.

“Jessica! Put the sword down!” Jack said.

Jessica wheeled around and pointed the sword at her father.

“Whoa, hey, Jess! Jess, don’t point that at me!”

“You know. You know. You know.” Jessica whispered.

“What?” Jack said.

“Mama!”

Elsa looked at Jess as if she wanted to help her, but couldn’t.

“Jess.” Elsa began to slowly approach Jessica. Jessica looked at her and pointed it at her. Elsa was confused, and stopped.

“Jessica, put the sword down.” Jack said again.

This time Jessica listened and dropped the sword as if it burned her.

Jack moved briskly and grabbed the sword from the ground.Then he said, “Jessica-”

He was going to say that she was in a lot of trouble, but before he could, the girl vanished, reappeared behind Pitch and surprisingly put him into a headlock.

“Jess! Let him go!”

“Villain. Villain.”

“Jess, he’s not-”

“VILLAIN! HE’S A VILLAIN!”
    “Jessica-”

“YOU DON’T GET IT! HE’S A VILLAIN! ALWAYS WILL BE!”

By this time everyone at the ball had come outside to watch.

Finally, Jessica said one more thing that would haunt Jack forever.

“He will betray us, and you will never know why.”

Then, Jessica went unconscious and Pitch was let go.

“She has a hard grip.”

“Jess!”

Jack moved quickly towards Jessica and scooped her up in his arms, and looked at everyone else in horror.

“She’s ice cold, and she’s not breathing!”

“She’s unconscious, just like Anna was when she was 5 years old!”

“We need to help her!”

“We will.”

They kept trying to revive her, all failed attempts. She was not dead. But if she stayed unconscious for much longer, she was as good as dead.

Pitch then said, “I’m sorry, King Jackson, but I can’t get her back.”

He then looked at Jack with a sad face.

“We should get her to the infirmary. She’ll be better then.”

So they took her to the infirmary, and the doctor set on her right away.

About an hour later, the doctor then told Jack that she was not likely to survive the night. Jack broke down. He fell on his knees and put his head in his hands.

“How did she go unconscious?” Jack asked.

“From what I saw, her heart was beating too fast. Perhaps a panic attack, or maybe she was very frightened. Whatever the reason, her heart was beating too fast, and she fell unconscious.”

“You think she won’t survive the night?”

“Sadly, no. She will either die or go into a coma.”

Jack looked like he was going to fall into a coma himself, so Elsa made him sit down gently, and then began whispering.

Anna came in, and Jack looked at her sadly.

“Anna, he says that she will either go into a coma, or she won’t survive the night.”

“Why?”

“Her heart rate, it was too fast.”

“I hope she comes out of it.”

“I do too, Anna.”

“Should I go tell everyone else?”

“You’re going to have to.”

So Anna ran off to go tell everyone. While she was gone, Jack looked at Elsa and said, “Do you think she’ll be all right?”

“Yeah. I think so.”

Jessica ended up going into a coma.

Jack did not visit her, but told the servants to write down everything that happened around the castle. What he did, what Elsa did, what Anna did, so that Jess would know.

Her coma lasted four months, or 121 days. Pitch was still there, but he never visited Jessica. He didn’t really think he should. After all, the princess didn’t like him.

When Jessica woke up, Jack wasn’t by her side because he was in his office working. The doctor saw her awake and said, “You’re awake!”

“What happened?”

“You’re heart was beating too fast, and you fell unconscious. From what I remember you went a bit insane-if you’ll forgive my saying so- at King Pitch of Corona.”

“I beg you to not say his name to me.”
    “Yes, Your Royal Highness.”

“What day is it?”

“June 27th.”

Jessica was shocked, but she didn’t show it.

“I went unconscious…”

“On February 27th.”

“At the ball.”

“Yes, Your Royal Highness.”

Jessica then asked where her father was.

“He is in his office. It pains me to say this, but he has not visited you at all. I do not know why, but he hasn’t. However, if I remember correctly, he had servants write down everything that he, Queen Elsa, and Princess Anna did so that you would know. I have the books right here.”

He then gave her two books that had 100 pages each inside. She  opened one and it had Jack’s handwriting in it, as well as the servants’ various handwritings.

“He said to give you these if or when you woke up. I don’t know if he noticed, but I’m certain I saw tears well up in his eyes when he said your name. Or it was just a trick of the light.”

“Is Pitch still here?”

“Yes, miss. He’s still here.”

Jessica didn’t say anything more.

“I will send a servant right now to tell your father that you are awake. I’m sure he will be glad to see you, Your Royal Highness.”

Jessica said nothing, and the doctor sent a servant to tell Jack that she was awake.

When the servant came back, he said:

“His Majesty will be here in a minute with Queen Elsa and Princess Anna.”

Sure enough, Jack came with Elsa and Anna at his side. He saw Jess and smiled for what seemed the first time in months.

“Jess! I thought you were going to...going to….”

He couldn’t finish, and finally fell silent.

“Die?” Jessica finished for him.

“Yeah.” Jack then looked at Elsa.

“Jess, I know you just woke up, but I want you to know that what you did to Pitch...it wasn’t good. You shouldn’t have done that.

“Speaking of that, what did you do to get blood on your mouth?”

“Huh?”

“When I came to pick you up to escort you to the ball, you had blood dripping from your mouth like you had eaten someone. What happened?”

Jessica remembered, and said slowly:

“I don’t know. The last thing I remember is I’m looking out the window, and a voice in my head says, ‘You promised.’ Then I see black, but I still hear everything. I hear everything that’s going on. Then I see what I’m doing, but I can’t control it. I remember putting Pitch in a headlock, and saying the things I said....”

“It wasn’t you?”

“No.”

Jack was astonished at Jessica’s answer.

“I thought….You must have gone insane then or something.”

“I WAS NOT INSANE!”

Jack winced at Jessica’s tone of voice, but then he went stern and said:

“So you meant to hurt Pitch?”

“No.”

“Then what caused you to put him into a-whatever you call it?”

“Headlock. I already told you, I don’t know.”

“Jess, I need you to tell me the truth.”

“I am.”

Jack was silent.

Five months later, something happened that scarred Jessica for life, something that she was bound to never forget.
