A/N: I don't own Frozen!
"Good morning, Anna," the queen greeted warmly. A small smile graced her face. The bouncy red head skipped over to the seat next to Elsa. As soon as Anna was seated, Elsa pulled the younger girl's chair closer to herself. The princess gave her sister a curious look but let it go in favor of cramming her mouth with the foods in front of her.
"Come in, Anna."
The door to the library was yanked open with no further preamble. The younger girl happily pranced over, tripping on books only twice. Elsa turned up from her paperwork work to look the other girl in the face.
"What are you doing?"
"I'm doing paperwork, Anna."
"Do you want to build a snowman?"
The blonde didn't have time to answer before she was dragged out by the surprisingly strong ginger.
It was her turn to knock on the door. Her sister's voice welcomed her in and Elsa walked in, quietly shutting the door behind her.
"Are you done with work?" questioned the excitable girl.
"Indeed I am, Anna."
"Yay!" Before Elsa knew what was going on, she found herself on the floor with a face full of hair. She couldn't help laughing.
"Come on, come on, come on," shouted an impatient voice. "We're going to be late!"
The more composed one of the two sighed affectionately. "We'll be right on time, Anna."
"No we're not! Come onnnnn," whined the younger girl. She took Elsa's hand in her own, forcibly dragging the other girl towards their destination. "We're going to miss everything!"
Elsa managed to pull Anna back a bit, throwing the girl off balance. The queen grinned. "I'll race you, Anna."
For a moment, all sense of decorum was gone.
"Do you want to build a snowman?"
Elsa groans, having been roused from sleep. "It's late, Anna."
"The sky's awake, so I'm awake!"
"Go back to sleep, Anna."
"But we have to play!" Elsa twitched.
"Anna, we can play in the morning."
Even though her eyes were still closed, Elsa could tell Anna was pouting.
"Can I sleep in here, then?"
"Go ahead, Anna."
She felt a warm body press against her back. She lets out a small sigh of approval.
"Good night, Anna."
It's quiet for a second.
"You're always doing that."
"Doing what, Anna?" Elsa turns around to face her sister, opening her eyes for the first time of the night. She's curious about what her sister has to say.
"Never mind." Her little sister buries her head into Elsa's neck. Elsa, too tired to pry, falls asleep.
It's the next morning and Elsa's been awake for the past hour. Even so, she hasn't moved from her bed. Anna's still sleeping away and the queen takes this moment to just enjoy the quiet with her sister. A few minutes later, the red head's eyes slowly open before blinking rapidly, trying to brush the sleep away.
"Good morning, Anna," whispers Elsa to the younger girl. There's a mumbled reply. "Say that again, Anna?"
A much clearer voice responds. "You're always saying my name."
The regal one raises an eyebrow. "Is there a reason why I shouldn't say my dear Anna's name?"
Said Anna rubs her eyes before propping herself up on her elbows, looking at the blonde. She looks over the older girl's face, searching for something. "You don't need to say it every sentence."
"Anna, I don't say your name in every sentence."
"Yes, you do."
"Well then, Anna, would you like to tell me the reason I do if you are so aware of things?" jokes Elsa.
It's quiet for a while. Elsa starts feeling a little unnerved by the silence. Suddenly, she has an armful of Anna who's hugging her so tight she doesn't think she can breathe.
"I've missed you, too, Elsa."
