Childhood's GuardiansChildhood's Guardians
It is night and a child tosses and turns in his sleep. He lets out a whimper that alerts his mother to the nightmare he is having. When the mom gets to her sons bed he is awake and crying.
"Hush now, don't cry," says the mother as she hugs her son. He only continues to cry and wimpier while hugging his mom.
"Hush it's okay, you can't give up yet. You don't want the Boogie Man to win now do you?"
"H-Huh?" whimpers the boy as he looks up at his mom confused.
"Why? You don't know?" gasps the mom who only pretends to be surprised.
"Huh? N-nuh uh" says the boy forgetting about his earlier fear.
"Why the Boogie Man gives you your nightmare, but don't be scared because the Sand Man will help you. He is one of the guardians of childhood after all. I guess he needed your help this time. As long as you can stand up to your fears he will always be there to help you," coos the mother.

A man with a long white beard sat in his work shop looking at a letter. He gets many letters but many do not make it to him because the post office doesn't deliver to him. The ones he does get are the ones left next to the cookies left out for him. Normally it's a child saying thank you for the presents, hope you like the cookies, good luck on your trip, things like that. There are even parents who are writing for their children. But this letter, this letter was different. It was for all the Guardians and it was not from a child it was a parent thanking them. Of course the man had told the other Guardians; he even caught the boy reading it again with a big smile on his face. Not that the man could blame him, he yet again found himself reading it.
"I may not see you anymore, most likely due to me being a grown up but I still know you are there so I have to thank you for helping my son. Thank you, Santa for allowing me to see my son so happy on Christmas when he o

Jack felt positively awkward at the moment.
It had been a few weeks since they had managed to send Pitch back into the shadows under the beds of children all around the world and the Guardians had begun to reorganize and indulge into their duties. The lights on the Globe were once again increasing but it still would be a long way to go until all of the children believed once again.
But they had time now; Pitch wouldn’t be coming back all too soon. But the Boogeyman wasn’t what bothered the Guardian of fun as he was sitting together with the other legends at the Pole drinking a mug of hot chocolate, discussing what needed to be done to bring joy to the children again.
Jack did not feel awkward because he was being asked by everyone if he could lend them a hand (which he was more willing than ever, he wanted to make up to Bunnymund especially).
Jack Frost~The NightmareJack sat on top of the tall building, his staff held across his shoulders. He looked out over the sleeping town of Burgess, and felt a sense of calm permeate him. Pitch was gone, or at least wasn't threatening any children. So the Guardians were on vacation. The snow fell silently, a beacon of the relaxation of the usually hyper winter spirit, and Jack felt his eyelids start to droop. The heavy atmosphere of the silent night was getting to him. Maybe, just a little shut-eye. Can't hurt, can it?... Jack lay back, the powdery snow cushioning him, as he fell into a light doze.Jack Frost~The Nightmare2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Sick DayI had gotten the message from one of Tooth’s mini fairies who flew to my warren about an hour ago. Needless to say wasn’t sure on how to react to it. None of the other guardians had ever fallen seriously ill before; no one knew what to do in a situation like this.Sick Day2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
After gathering up what little medical supplies I had into my pack and instructing the eggs on what to do while I was gone, I opened one of my tunnel systems and headed for the North Pole. The message from Tooth and the others kept circulating through my mind. Jack had appeared on North’s doorstep, shivering and suffering from a fever. North said Jack passed out as soon as he knew that North had seen him. North then immediately had the yetis notify all of us; North needed our help with this. While being great with children when they are healthy, North had no experience in how to care for an ill child. Let alone an 18 year-old immortal winter spirit.
North was reviewing some of the yetis

As he was lay there, Scorpio caught his attention. Scorpio twinkled, and motioned toward North America with one of his arms. The Man on the Moon peered over the edge of the moon to see quite a terrible sight.
A young man was holding his arm out to his sister, who was on a very thin layer of ice. In fact, both of them were in mortal danger. The scene was quite morbid.
The Man on the Moon reached for his fishing pole when Scorpio stopped him. He looked to Scorpio in protest but it was no use. Scorpio wanted him to watch this, but why? What was going to happen?
The Man on the Moon decided to follow Scorpio’s gesture. As he began to watch, he heard the other constellations whispering. The mutters an
FrostbittenNight was beginning to fall in the quiet, colonial town of Burgess. Most of the people were already inside, starting fires to keep out the fresh winter cold of late November. However, there were a few still out and about, for what seemed like a stroll through the woods, but they weren’t necessarily locals nor were they simply out to enjoy the scenery.Frostbitten2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
A woman’s voice quietly called out to her companions. “What should we do now, North?”
North turned around to face Toothiana and the other guardians with a sigh. They were trudging through the thick, densely snow-covered woods for some time now in search of the sleigh. The battle with Pitch had been brutal; it was a miracle none of them were seriously harmed, although they had been separated for a while. Luckily, they had agreed to meet up in the forest below them beforehand. However, it had not been part of the plan to lose the sleigh.
North simply looked at Toothiana before shrugging. “We find the sle
ProtectBunnymund was quite aware that the winter spirit was tailing him. Honestly, with ears and a nose like his it was a wonder that Jack believed he could sneak around the Pooka.

But he had work to do. A guardian was always busy, even if he did only have one day of the year specifically set around them.
He was the guardian of Hope after all. Not a particularly easy job.
He had already ventured all throughout Russia, China, Mexico (he was much more partial to that climate) and was now traveling through the familiar town of Burgess. The sun was quickly setting, so he was out of the clear sight of children. Bunny was sure that it wouldn't have mattered – they'd already seen him many times, though he was sure that a few of them (disregarding Jamie) now thought it had been one very confusing and vivid dream created by the Sandman. And if he really didn't want to be seen in broad daylight
First Night During the whole ride back, the Guardians continued to congratulate Jack on becoming a true guardian; the guardian of fun. Toothiana continued to hug him and speaking enthusiastically, asking him questions about his sister while her mini-fairies squeaked happily. Sandy made dozens of sand images of all of them together happily doing many activities. North, although driving the sleigh, went on and on about what Jack could do now, joyfully trying to explain the rules of being a guardian. Even Bunnymund was proud of the boy, thanking him for keeping Jamie believing in him. It was very loud, and Jack smiled yet struggled to keep up with all the excitement. The young spirit was overwhelmed happily, but nervous.First Night2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Bunnymund blinked, belatedly closing his tunnel entrance behind him, and looked down at the pink stuffed rabbit being shoved at him by tiny blonde girl before him. Sophie raised her toy higher, shaking it a bit to demonstrate its need.
"Fix it," she repeated. The Easter Bunny gradually bent down to inspect the well-loved creature, taking in its dirty, faded fur and mismatched button eyes. He then noticed the stuffing poking out of its back.
"Oh," he said, and carefully pulled the toy from Sophie's hands. Its ears flopped in opposite directions, and he became conscious of the child's pleading look. "Well… I'm sorry, Soph," he began, rubbing the back of his head with a paw. "But I'm no good with a needle and thread..." Alarmed, he saw that Sophie's eyes had begun to water. "But, but hey, can't your mum fix this?"
"No!" she cried, grumpily folding her arms over her chest and kept her tears at bay. "Mommy took Jamie to the d-dentist. An' I want you to fix it!"
Forever Young - Part 1Jack flew across the surface of the snow. It felt great to be out of the Pole for a while. The other Guardians had been overly protective of him ever since that horrid sickness. But today he was happy to skim the surface of the snow covered cliffs and glaciers, barely 12 inches from the ground.Forever Young - Part 12 years ago in Drama More Like This
"Hold up Frostbite! Not everyone can fly; some of us have to use these things called legs." Bunnymund shouted from somewhere far behind him. Jack pulled up and hovered above the snow, gripping his staff he looked back and saw the small figures that were the Guardians. North trudged through the snow, creating a large path in his wake which quickly caved in behind him. Tooth and Sandy flew above the snow, both wrapped in thick winter coats. Bunnymund was attempting to spring through the snow, but was making very slow progress as he didn't like snow very much and kept having to shake himself. The Guar

It was evening already when they decided to call it a day. There wasn’t really anything to discuss anymore. Tooth and Sandy would go back to their daily and nightly routines, North would indulge further into his preparations for this year’s Christmas (which by his own words was going to be epic) and Bunnymund would go back from his warren, trying to bring it back to it’s former warmth and glory.
Jack had agreed to help them all out occasionally, since a wandering spirit like him would either come across to one of them or have a bit more of three time once the northern hemisphere was in no more need of ice and snow when summer came. And even if the south also needed it’s little winter chill it still wasn’t as much work as further up north where he had more ground to cover.

The teen laughed, an impish grin on his face as he danced out of his mother's reach, his younger sister clinging to his arm in giddy abandon.
"I'll be fine, Mother," Jack assured her, already halfway out the door with his sibling tightly clamped to his side and ice skates slung over both their shoulders. "Winter's nearly over, don't worry."
In the three centuries that Jack Frost had lived and breathed in Burgess, the Sandman had only made two personal visits.
Now Jack understood why—the diminutive man had quite the busy schedule, and could only be in one city or town each night, even if his powers extended to all corners of the Earth. Each night he was on a different continent, giving particularly strong dreams to the children of whatever region he was in. Though in those three hundred years, Sandman had done his best to give Jack Frost a dream— a memory, or a fantasy even— and it had never

I was running through the dark, thick, snow-covered woods, yelling out her name as I tried my best to follow the tracks quickly being covered by the fresh snow. It was only a game! She wasn’t supposed to be in danger! We had only been playing hide and seek; I know mother didn’t like us to play this far into the woods, but it had the best hiding spots. I always made sure Elizabeth didn’t go far; she wasn’t that good at hiding anyway. But tonight, she had gone farther than she normally does. And apparently, she had disturbed something living in the woods.
“Jackson! Help me!”
I pushed myself to run faster; she sounded close. I pushed away low-hanging tree branches and pushed through the foliage until I came across a clearing. I stopped short when I saw the wolves surrounding a small, cowering figure who was backed up against

"Jack! Get down from there!" Called Pippa, Jack's little sister.
Jack swung from the middle branch of a tree, carelessly and upside-down, by his legs.
"Jack, be careful." Called his mother, setting up the picnic that they had planned for the day.
Jack chuckled, climbing down the ruff bark of the tree and skipped over towards the blanket that was laid out on the grass. Opening the picnic basket, he grabbed out the freshly made bread his mother had baked the morning before and tore off the crusty end to eat.
"Jack." Scolded his mother sitting down to join him. "Pippa come over here and have some lunch." She called as Pippa picked some wildflowers nearby. She happily skipped over to them to join them.
"Mom, Jack and I are going ice-skating later. Is that okay?"
"We are?" Asked Jack.
"Yeah. You promised, remember?" Pippa muttered to him.

After about twenty minutes of tossing and turning, Jack decided that it would be pointless to stay in bed when he couldn't sleep. The Guardians were all at the table when he got there; North was at the head with Bunnymund to his right and Tooth on the left. Sand floated in his seat next to Bunnymund. North must have just said something funny, because Tooth burst into laughter while Sandy clapped and Bunnymund even smirked. Jack was finding it hard to concentrate. He made it to the table and ignored all conversation. He didn't feel at all hungry, so he just sat there poking at the bowl of cereal without much interest, eating less than half.

It was one of these days again. Sure, they all got into arguments from time to time, like Bunnymund with North whenever the other denied the importance of the other one’s holiday, but this time it wasn’t about the Australian bunny and the Russian gift bringer or about whether Easter held more importance than Christmas.
This time it was about one of Jack’s latest wrongdoings. Tooth, Sandy and even the Easter Bunny flinched as North’s booming voice managed to penetrate through the door of his workshop, roaring at a not any less angry winter spirit going by the name of Jack Frost.

It had been over a week since the Guardians had defeated Pitch, but Pitch was known to be a sore loser and Jack had been suffering because of it. Terror filled his mind, dreams turned to nightmares. But he refused to tell anyone because he knew that they would make a fuss over it and that was the last thing he wanted. North would probably try to be fatherly, Tooth would be motherly, Sandy would try to give him good dreams and Bunnymund probably wouldn't care.

The winter spirit sighed as he leaned on his staff.
"Like I said the last twenty times, I can't, because I really don't know what happened."
"That's a bloody lie!"
They both looked at the small, fluffy, bluish grey rabbit sitting on North's desk, glaring up the boy.

"Look Bunny, I really don't know what or how it happened, and I definantly don't know how to fix it. On the bright side," Jack said, a smirk forming, "You look like a bunny now. A sweet, adorable little bunny."
