Elsa buried her head in her hands. The room was littered with crumpled up papers. "Damn her," she said. "God damn her." She picked up her pen and wrote a few lines on the paper in front of her. Her face scrunched up as she did the same to the paper and had it join the others on the floor. She wrote a line on another paper before discarding that one. She then turned her chair around to the rest of the room and made living ice instruments, aside from an ice piano. She started up her song as the other ice instruments played at their proper ques.
The snow glows white on the mountain tonight.
Not a footprint to be seen.
Outside her room, Aurora and Maleficent arrived. "Elsa," said Aurora.
A kingdom of isolation
And it looks like I'm the queen.
"What is that?" asked Aurora.
"It's something our family is familiar with," said Maleficent. "It's called music."
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside.
Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I've tried.
"I came here hoping to hear a pen scratching on paper," said Aurora, "not Elsa's signature song." She opened the door.
Don't let them in, don't let them see.
"Elsa," said Aurora. Elsa played a sour note as well as the ice instruments. "Well, is it done?" asked Aurora. No response. "Have you finished it?" Still no response. "May I see it?" Elsa picked up a draft form the floor. Aurora read a few lines. "Good grief, this is awful." She looked at Elsa. "Where's the rest of it?" Elsa pointed at the drafts on the floor.
"I don't remember which draft is which," she said.
"Do you mean to tell me that it's not finished?" asked Aurora in disbelief.
"No," said Elsa, "I mean to say that it's not begun." Aurora slowly let herself fall into another chair.
"A whole week!" she said in disbelief. "A whole week! The entire Earth was created in a week!"
"Someday," said Elsa, "you must tell me how you did it."
"Disgusting," said Aurora. "Look at you, Arendelle's most famous lover." She got up. "Well, we still have a week. So, get to work." Not a pen was lifted. "Maleficent," said Aurora, "tell her to get to work."
"I think she's asleep," said Elsa as she pointed to the bed behind her. Aurora turned to see Maleficent snoozing.
"I'm the narcoleptic one here," she said. She grabbed Maleficent's staff and whacked it on some of the posts. "Wake up!" said Aurora. Maleficent's still closed eyes scrunched up as she held her hands to her ears.
"Really Aurora," said Maleficent, "must you start banging in the morning?" A knock was heard on the door.
"I'll get it," said Elsa. She opened the door to be bear hugged by a red head with twin braids. Snow White and Cinderella followed.
"We're not interrupting, are we?" asked Cinderella.
"Anna," strained Elsa, "you're crushing my ribs!" Anna let her go.
"Snow White sent a letter telling me what's going on," she said. "I know how much you wanted to see my wedding, so I moved the wedding date and location to a month's time in front of Cinderella's castle!" Aurora motioned for Maleficent, Snow White, and Cinderella to gather around with her.
"Whose idea was it?" she whispered.
"It was both me and Cindy's," said Snow White.
"We figured the sooner Elsa's problem is solved," said Cinderella, "the sooner ours is."
"Good idea," said Maleficent. Kristoff entered the room.
"Am I interrupting?" he asked.
"Not at all," said Elsa. She gathered up her writing materials and dismissed the ice instruments. "You two must be tired from your long journey. I think some more bonding will do you good." Only Kristoff, Elsa and Anna understood immediately. The others took a while. When Elsa reached the door, first Aurora got it, then Snow White, Then Cinderella, finally, Maleficent. They rushed out of the room after Elsa.
"Hold on," said Aurora. "You don't mean to say...? I mean, they're not going to…? Before the honeymoon?!"
"Those old sensibilities were thrown out the window when my movie was made," said Elsa.
"Fantastique!" said Aurora.
"I think I better go," said Maleficent. She turned to leave.
"Maleficent, wait!" said Aurora. Maleficent turned. "Have you had anything to eat yet?" asked Aurora.
"Well, no, but," said Maleficent, a bit perplexed.
"I heard that there's some really good gumbo at Tiana's Palace," said Aurora.
"Well, the thing is," said Maleficent, "I have a lunch date with Ursula at La Ratatouille."
"Ah," said Aurora. "Well, farewell."
"Farewell," said Maleficent as she disappeared into her green flames.
"You know," said Cinderella, "we haven't hung out in a while."
"And I've never been to Tiana's Palace," said Snow White. Aurora smiled.
"Let me just summon our ride!" said Aurora. She took out a car beeper and pressed it. A flash of gold and their ride arrived. Snow White and Cinderella just stared at Aurora.
"Only you," said Cinderella, "would get a pink limo."
