A Tug and a Pull
"Wait! Hold still just a little longer, pleaaase?"
She let out a grunt and pursed her lips impatiently. When Anna had stumbled into her room at six in the morning, excited and enthusiastic about the winter festivities and suggested that she style Elsa's hair, the queen found that she couldn't say no.
However, she was hardly enjoying it.
"Sorry sorry! Almost there, I promise!"
Elsa winced at another tug, and she could feel her bangs being pulled backward. She had been sitting on her bed patiently for at least an hour, enduring every yank her younger sister managed to give which, from time to time, elicited a tiny gasp or groan from the queen.
"What are you doing back there?" she finally demanded with a raised brow.
Anna brushed a long piece of platinum blonde hair away from her face.
"You'll see~!" she chirped in response. Elsa could just imagine the large, teasing smile that adorned Anna's face.
Despite her earlier annoyance accompanied with the fact that she could hardly ever deny her younger sister, Elsa closed her eyes and couldn't hold back the small chuckle that fell from her parted lips.
Anna tucked a few more pieces of hair to the back of Elsa's head then clasped her hands together.
The queen let out an inaudible sigh of relief as she rose from her seat and peered carefully into the mirror. Her bangs had been brushed back, clasped near the back of her head by a silver and sapphire-gem clip which closely resembled that of a snowflake. Tilting her head to the side, Elsa noticed that a large portion of her hair tumbled down her back in slight waves while small strands of platinum blonde tresses were carefully braided and wrapped toward the glittering clip.
"You kept my hair down?" Elsa asked, her brows knitted with confusion as she fingered a few loose strands that framed her face. She couldn't deny that she did prefer her hair this way. She felt less restrained, free.
"I rarely see you with your hair down. You have such beautiful hair, Elsa. I'm a little jealous, why do you always put it up?" Anna shifted at Elsa's side, and out of the corner of her eye, the queen noticed her younger sister bite at her bottom lip.
"I don't know, I guess I'm just used to putting it up."
Anna then placed her hands on her hips and huffed, causing Elsa to roll her eyes.
"Well you should leave it down more! Really, it wouldn't kill you once in a while... would it?"
Elsa offered Anna a soft smile as she leaned forward to place her hands on her sister's shoulders.
"No, you're right. I should let it down once in a while." Then a mischievous smile curled upon Elsa's features as she gently pushed Anna into the chair. "But now, I think it's your turn~!"
"Wait, what? You're going to style my hair? I thought you had a meeting this morning!"
Elsa found herself rolling her eyes again as she leaned forward. She was so close that her cheek brushed against Anna's as a teasing smile played across her lips.
"They can wait ten minutes. What kind of sister would I be if I didn't return the favor?"
She watched Anna in the mirror as a large smile bloomed along her younger sister's face. Elsa's fingers gently parted the ginger strands, pulling one over the other as she began to braid.
"Besides, we can have the same hair style for once."
Anna shifted in her seat as Elsa continued. A soft, amused chuckle escaped her lips. Anna was never one to sit still when she was giddy.
"I-I'd love that, Elsa."
Brushing a piece of her sister's hair from her face, Elsa glanced into the mirror.
Meeting eyes, both sisters smiled.
A/N: Can't get enough of the relationship these two have! This drabble/one-shot series will focus on Anna and Elsa after the events of Frozen, and how they make up for the 13 years they've lost. Some stories will be longer than others.
Review~ any suggestions on my writing or future drabbles/one-shots would be greatly appreciated.
Until next time!
