4 years later….
4 years passed since one tragedy that changed all of our destiny. I don't want to remember that since it also break my heart, where I lost my true love for all. My true love for my Ice Prince Charming aka Jack Frost. The winter season is back.. once again. And it makes me wanna cry. Why? Because the winter brings me sweet memories between both of us. When I was fall in love with him, when I got my first kiss, when I lived together with him until… when I forced to separate with him. I looked to my cellphone as I already called him 10 minutes ago, but he didn't answered it. I gripped my cellphone tighter, why didn't he? Ah, why? Does he no longer love me?
This is Friday, my break day, so I don't have work to do, so I laid on the sofa, drinking a mug of hot chocolate while watching TV, the hot news. I was shocked when there's a news of Esha McFair will come back in entertainment industry after being idle for 4 years. Crap, must be she want to take a revenge on me.
My dark thought disturbed with a doorbell. I was little scared that time, tried to get my courage to walk closer to the door and opened it. And…
"Mama!!" Jeffery shouted happily as I kneed down before him to give a hug. "Mama, mama! I got A's in today's Art class! Take a look!!" There, my little boy show me of one drawing of 3 humanoid creatures at the background of snowy park.
"It's beautiful, Jeffery," I praised him as I kissed him at his cheek. "But can you tell me who are they?"
"Ha.. this is me," he pointed his finger to drawing of the little boy throwing the snowball. "This is mama," he pointed at one lady who stand behind that little boy. "And this is daddy," he pointed then at one white-haired teen, hiding behind the snowman.
I was flattered for a while as I saw the drawing of the young teen. Some tears flowing down across my cheek slowly as I rushed to my room and lock the door.
"Mama!! Mama!!" Jeffery shouted as he pursued after me then he knocked the door harder as he realized the door for my room already locked. "Mama, do you hate me? Mama!!" he cried slowly before that door.
I laid upside down on my bed, hiding my face on the pillow, kept crying for remembering of that drawing. "Jack... where have you been? I-I'm weak without you…" and as I cried, I slowly slept on my bed.
Jack Frost's POV
As usual for this winter, spreading snow around the world, also bringing fun to everyone. I can see everyone there especially kids laughed for playing snowballs war or feeling the chill of winter that I made. *chuckle* But... I feel something missing. It already happened 4 years ago. I still remember I had been forced to separate with (your name) only because of…
I don't want to remember of that witch. She's not different with Pitch, who envy of what another person have. I want to meet (your name) once again, but am I allowed for that? I still remember of what Ayie and Bob told me…
"(your name), Jack, listen. You need to separate in your own way at least 3-4 years from now. Esha is still around and hunted by police for murdering Raymond, and she's still keep revenge to both of you. Maybe she will plan of her extreme evil plan to finish both of you," Bob said.
"And one more thing. (your name), you need to keep your eyes on Jeffery. She already know he's your son with Jack Frost. Could be after this, she will kidnap him to destroy your life, so I want both of you… please. Stay away for this moment," Ayie said.
That makes (your name) placed her head at my shoulder, cried. "Jack, I don't want you go,"
"I know, (your name) but we have too," I replied as I kissed your head. "We'll meet again someday. I promise,"
At North Pole, a year later after Shattered Frost pt11
I laid against the wall as I looked the snowy outside, thinking of (your name). My fellows always look on me awkwardly. I don't know why but it looks annoying.
"Jack, that would be a reason why you have to make that choice, even it hurts for both of you," North said.
"Reason why I had to make that choice?" I answered back. "You know what, (your name) and I forced to make that choice not because we wanted to. That witch still alive and looking on both of us. She wants to finish. All of us,"
There, Tooth fled to me then floating at my side, "North is right, Jack. Maybe you'll find someone better than-,"
"There's no one around the world that I looked for except (your name)!!" I shouted.
"Don't try to mess up with that small matter, mate," Bunnymund said.
"Listen, Jack. This is for your own good," Tooth said to me before I knocked my staff on the floor.
That time, I was mad at them but… "I can't stand it…." I sighed as I still remembered of those memories, I can't erased it from my mind. "I have to go,"
I leaved slowly without looking on them before I fled up away from North Pole.
Okay, so how many years I already leaved (your name)? 4 years, huh? Okay, they said at least 3-4 years, maybe I can take a look on (your name) for this moment. Because in 4 years after we had been forced to make our own way, I still spread snow at that city but… when I looked to the building that she lives in, I tried to look away. I don't want her to see me. She will heart-broken for that. Maybe for this time, I can take a visit on her. And how about Jeffery? Does he still believe in me?
"Wind, bring me to (your name) and Jeffery!!" I shouted as I dived down the building before I fled across the countries so I can meet my snowflake once again.
I woke up slowly as it's 7PM. Crap, I'm supposed to make a dinner to Jeffery. Must be he's hungry for this moment, so I rushed to the kitchen and find some simple ingredients. Okay, fried noodle with soy sauce, with some veggies. So, I started cooking that meal. Meanwhile, Jeffery slept on the sofa at living room, still holding that 'first-class' drawing, there he woke up slowly as he sensed some good smell from kitchen. He walked faster to the kitchen and..
"Mama, is dinner finished yet?" Jeffery asked.
"Yeah~" Then I served a plate of fried noodles with some veggies then placed it on the dining table. My little boy get into his seat as he get the fork and ate happily.
"Don't get rush," I said as I served another plate of fried noodle for me as I took a dinner with him.
"Mama," Jeffery said suddenly.
"Yeah, sweetie?" I replied.
"Mama, at school recently, Opie mocked me again,"
"Hmm? With the same reason, right?"
"Yeah… he always mocked me that I don't have daddy. Mama, am I have a daddy, right?"
"Yes, Jeffery. You have. Just let them be and they'll stop after that,"
"But until when?"
I muted for a while before I continued eating fried noodle again then I remembered something. "Do you have a homework to do?"
"Emm.. just Math," Jeffery sighed as he mentioned 'Math'. "It's bored,"
Okay, okay. Jeffery hates Math, just like me when I was a kid. I really loves creativity until I ignored logic. I mean, when I was in school, I really love Art class, but when the Math class, I pretend asleep on the table. No wonder I always got B in Math. Whatever.
"Jeffery, don't say like that. We have to learn Math so we can count correctly without been duped. Like this, we want to buy something priced USD50, but you have USD200, must be we want USD150 back after we paid it, right?" I advised him.
"But like I said, Math is bored. Those numbers are confusing me," my little boy replied. I just sighed as I already finished my meal, followed with him. My little boy then rushed to his school bag to get his Math activity book and his pencil box as he sat before the coffee-table while I washed the dishes before I walked to the living room, sat beside him to monitor him a bit. My hands now grabbed my iPad as I want to write something. The letter from my heart…
4 years already passed after we make our own way only because the third person who want to finish all of us. She already destroyed our life and I don't want her to.. whatever it is. I want to tell you what was happen to me, Jeffery, Ayie, Bob, Raymond's kids also Esha while your gone.
When we separated, I worked as graphic designer. But 2 years ago, I'm decided to make my own business. I mean, I want to make my own business, to sell something. Coincidentally, at this town there's one university opened and it also offered course of Graphic Design. When I make a research around the places, there's NO print and art stationary shop available there. If there's one nearby, it located 50 kilometer from the university. It would be a burden for them to buy something important things at the far place. There, I got an idea, I'm decided to open the print and art stationary shop at this city. With using my own money since I kept some of my salary for working as graphic designer for 5 years, I bought one corner shop-lot beside the university also make a deal with art stationary dealer across the country to buy their product (markers, pottery set, layout pad, mountain board etc) in large amount. Not forget, I bought 10 PCs, 10 normal printers and 2 printers that specialized to print the large-scaled artwork and much more. But I can't make 2 different works at the same time, there I was ready to quit from my job as graphic designer to focus on my business and they wished me good luck… also some of them laughed at me when they heard I want to open the print shop. They said, I don't have entrepreneurship experiences in that field before. So, for what I worked as graphic designer for 5 years?
When my first print and art stationary shop opened officially, I promoted the students, mostly juniors to buy their wanted drawing devices here without going until over 50 kilometer only for buying a set of layout pad. And yes, it was a successful effort for me. Everyday, they came to make a print to their report, assignments, buying some drawing things and so on. But something weird happened to me, I was targeting only Art and Design students, but something surprised me, there's another students from different courses also came to my shop to make a business trade with me. There's from students from Architecture, Planning and Surveying, Computer Science and Mathematics, Office and Business Management, Media and Communication, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Medic, Hospitality, Law, Accountancy, and much courses that they taken until I forgot most of them. But in short words, my idea to open my first print and art stationary shop is succeed. However, I can't manage my own shop in my own if I have to treat hundreds of students everyday, so I hired 3 workers to less the burden that I already afford. And everything's fine.
Oh yeah, since you leaved me, I also tried to contact you at least once a week but.. started from the first week you even not answered my call. What happen to you, Jack? Do you lost my phone or somewhat?
Since your gone, Jeffery looked moody since he need to get apart from his daddy (that's you silly) even he asked me, 'where's daddy?' I just answered him that you went working at overseas. But when he asked me where, I replied that you worked in Russia as architect. Err.. architect? That's already popped out from my mind since I also thought of Jake, my ex-husband.
This year, Jeffery got his entrance to elementary school. What a busy day for me to send him to school in weekdays and take him home after the school session's over. About his reaction, he really loves school. He got a lot of buddies. Just mention it, Amy, Balqis, Cindy, Henry, Ian, Victor, Xavier and much more… And he obviously loves Art class, so he can grab pencil and drawing anything random popped out from his mind, even the Art teacher gives him A grade for his talented drawing. But when he's in Math class, he always get scolded by the fierce Math teacher for sleeping on the desk. Kids… I mean, our kid.
But.. in 4 months lately, Jeffery misbehaved as he kept beat down one student named Opie. Opie always like to mock Jeffery that he doesn't have dad, so it makes our lil boy… uh, I think he acted just like you, Jack. Always rebel if doesn't like something. But still, a naughty-but-kind boy, and he still believe in myth like Santa Claus, Tooth fairy, Sandman, Easter Bunny... and the mostly he loved, you.
Ayie and Bob
You already know that both of them got arrested by police for murdering Raymond. They already got judgement in court and got imprisonment for 10 years for complot for committing crime. However, I heard on news last year, they'll get released since they behaved themselves. About their home, it's already abandoned. When I looked at the balcony, I stared to their home for a while. I was bored when they gone. Yeah, when I moved here, they kept annoyed me, flirted me and I ignored them until I befriend with them. They're sporting and funny sometimes but it's already swept away from my mind after they get imprisoned. Now, they're returned to their home but… they failed to get back their job as pizza deliver since they have a crime record. Even they applied much freelance job, but everything's... shattered. I only thought of something, if Ayie and Bob realized of what Esha planned to me and the rest 4 years ago, maybe they're alright for now. Even they always asked me some food since they don't have money to buy it, and I willingly treat them some dinner if I had to. Since they got released, there's no neighbors wanna get close with them even greet them. They were alone… just like me and you. One day, I discussed something with them, since Ayie can play a guitar well while Bob loves to play drum set, what if they make a cover song then upload it at YouTube? At first, they felt awkward of it but when I suggested them some music that suitable for Ayie's vocal, they agreed. There, I uploaded 5 cover songs from them then uploaded it in YouTube and….
Holy crap! One of the video got over 100000th viewer in just 10 hours!! What happen? Maybe that's because Ayie can sing emotionally, maybe he used to get imprison for 4 years and sometimes it give him sentimental feelings to sing a song. Now, both of them are working as one artist at one recording company (what name is it, up to you) and in no time, they'll get their first album.
Antonio, Maximus, Anastasia, Marcella
Do you remember who are they? Yes, Raymond's kids. Actually I forgot to find out about them in first 2 ½ years, until I heard some mouth-talk from some customer at Starbucks about what happen to Dearasons after Raymond's death. Uh oh, now I remembered them and I was figuring out at their mansion. Nothing changed there until I pressed the doorbell, and they chased me out since they thought I'm beggar or salesgirl, but when I introduced myself as (full name), there's one woman around 50's, always holding traditional hand-fan, greeted me and she invited me to the mansion.
If you asking me who is she, she's Lady Maria Dearason, their grandma. There, I asked of what happen to those kids after they lost their daddy and she said everything's alright in her bold British accent. Okay, nothing happen until I heard one broken glass from the kitchen, there Lady Dearason walked to the kitchen and I heard her scold and cursing also Anastasia's crying and pleading her to get released. I was shocked suddenly as I heard that, does this mean that… those kids are treated like a slave? Then, I saw Maximus and Antonio called me from the corner of the house as I walked to them. They told me that they can't stand of living like that. Since Raymond died, Lady Dearason got one will from her family lawyer that all of his properties such as their family house, their wealthy asset, and much more… inherited to all of his kids… but they won't get it until they aged 18. Since then, Lady Dearason forced all of them to work 24/7 as slaves in their own house. Usually, Antonio and Maximus worked for cleaning the frontyard and backyard, cleaning firehouse and chimney and finding firewoods at the wood nearby. Anastasia and Marcella worked for house-cleaning, cooking and dishwashing, If she found any mistakes such as broken vase, dusted window, or dropped bread, must be they got beaten badly by her. If I'm not mistaken, their bedrooms are locked from inside and she not allowed them to sleep there, otherwise they get forced to sleep at… the coop at backyard. What the hell??
Yes, in that mansion, they also kept some pets such as chickens, cats, guinea pigs, bunnies and much more. Just like a mini zoo. 4 years ago, they're well-cleaned, but now… I can't mention how filthy it is. About food, they can't get a normal breakfast, lunch and dinner otherwise they only ate once a day, a small cup of rice with dried fish but they must get meal away from Lady Dearason, she said they're disgusting. *sigh* I don't know how to mention it more. I'm feel pity of them, even they didn't have a chance to go to school just like Jeffery. Maybe what I was saying 4 years ago right, Jeffery got a light before him as he know who we are as his real parents. While those kids who lost their beloved daddy tried to keep strong for been abused by their grandma. I won't tell you more, Jack.
Ah, I hate this passage. When we separated, Esha was still around somewhere until 6 months later, she got caught by the police but… when she got arrested, she was out of her mind. Maybe she was in trauma since she got guilty feeling for murdering Raymond… that she was supposed to kill you or me. The police can't investigate her case since she's already insane. She get suspended at mental hospital since then. 3 years later, Esha became back to normal but… she was like a silent person. She returned to her normal life and that time I was scared if she's looking for me and Jeffery, so I always keep my eyes on our lil boy, but… Esha didn't do anything. What happen? Is she changed? I don't know it until I heard some conversation between her and Lady Dearason. If you want to know, Lady Dearason works as CEO of Dearason Publication and she hired Emily McFair (Esha's mom) as their company lawyer. Their friendship was getting closer when they won the case against their clients long time ago, so they make an agreement, as Lady Dearason want her son Raymond get married with Esha. Although Raymond's died, it doesn't mean Esha lost her relationship with Dearason's family. She still in contact with that wicked granny and they discussed of something but I don't know what it is. Maybe I need to check it out sooner or later.
Umm, until here I write this letter. I hope you understand~
Your beloved snowflake,
I stopped writing it as I looked Jeffery asleep on the desk and luckily he finished his Math homework so I brought him to the bed to get some sleep. But then I walked to the balcony as I looked to the sky, that was a beautiful night.. with a full moon and a lot of stars stand still around it.
Jack.. where are you?
Jack Frost's POV
Now, I'm arrived at the (city that you live in) as I can't wait to meet (your name) and Jeffery. My heart beat faster as I thinking of them. Why? Are they important for me? Maybe… I looked to each building across the city to find her. (your name), now I'll meet you again and this time…
Nothing can bother us.
But wait! I stopped, landed at one building as I looked around. I thought of something when I across of one colorful box (television) somewhere at the city. I saw someone's familiar. *thinking* they're look like… I remember them! Those naughty youngsters (Ayie and Bob) but wait! Are they already… okay, time changed them at all. I saw both of them covered with colorful lights (Ayie and Bob are in one music video), they said like this… Something that touched me. They said of something confessed from my heart after I kept them for a long time. Without been realized, I was crying… Those words are similar of what I felt since I leaved (your name) for ages… and I still remember of the last moment we forced to make apart…
I tried to open this scene, the story between you and me
Separated by space and time makes you leaving me behind
I feel I was loss of your lost love, you went too far because of me
Who never think you're exist for all
This romance makes us apart, makes me remembered of you
This wave reminds me that your love already take over my heart
Honestly I can't live without you like crazy
If you can repeat our love story once more
I won't leave you again
"(your name)!!" I shouted suddenly as I heard that… song. My heart beat faster as I remembered each memories between both of us. "I want to meet you.. I want to…" Then, I dashed to the sky, across the city again. I need to meet her. I don't want to lose her again…
Hour 0230, Your house
You can't sleep since recently Jeffery got a nightmare. He told you that he was being pursued with one black shadow from behind before he fell then that shadow took out his scythe and chop his head off. He screamed and hugged you tight as he awaked. You calmed him down and told him that was only a kip's game. There, your little boy slept once again as you sang him a sweet lullaby to ease him drown in his dream.
And then, you heard one loud knock sound from the sliding door. That makes you shocked for a while, in your mind you're thinking negatively, such as burglar tried to sneak inside your house or else. There, your left hand held a torchlight as you walked slowly to the living room. The sliding door already covered with large (fav color and pattern) curtain then you pointed that light to that curtain to see what's outside. You screamed in fear, fell on the floor as you saw one humanoid shadow with holding long hook stick. You hidden yourself at the corner of the living room.
"Stay away!! I'm nothing here!! Stay away!!" you shouted.
"(your name)!! (your name), can you hear me?"
You looked toward that sliding door as you heard that voice as you walked closer there and unveiled the curtain and…
Jack Frost stood at the balcony before the glass sliding door, knocking it gently. At first, you won't believe that he came there but after you looked for him at the long time, you unlocked the sliding door and opened it slowly. As the Ice Prince walked in, you hugged him harshly and he replied back before one frozen kiss given at your head.
"Jack, long time no see. I thought we never meet again," you said, crying happily.
"Why you said like that? I-I'm really want to meet you again… and Jeffery," Jack replied before he kissed your lips tenderly. "I'm really missed you, (your name),"
"Me too, my boy," then, you decided to shut the sliding door and cover it with the curtail as you walked back toward the winter spirit and giving him a kiss once again.
After the kiss broken….
"Jack... there are a lot of things that I wanna say to you…" you said.
"Maybe you better tell it soon. You're already sleepy," Jack said as his hands played with your hair gently, there you laid slowly on the sofa and the winter spirit get himself on you while your pretty eyes shut down slowly to get some sleep, smiling cutely. That makes him smirked as he get his lips at your forehead then plant some chilly kiss there before moved down to your ear, "Good night, (your name) my snowflake…" followed with 3 magic words, and his eyes shut down slowly as he grabbed your waist, sleeping on the sofa with you side by side.
At the same time, at one building nearby, there's one black shadow was looking to both of you slept together on sofa before he disappeared slowly in black fog.
And still at outside, there's one Mercedes car stopped before the condominium as one grey-eyed girl still looking up at the balcony via binocular. She thought of something as she focused on it until she saw both of you slept side by side on sofa, thus makes her envy of you thus she closed the car window then started the engine, leaving the scene.
To be continued....
