Hi, this is my first Rise of the Guardians story and I know I know the Prologue is very like the Beginning of the Movie with Jacks, but I hope you can look a bit past it and enjoy it anyway. Read it if you want and leave a review if you like.

Prologue Winter Spirit
"When I look back at the beginning all I remember was Darkness and … fear. I was scared of the things around me but…"
Twin azure orbs opened, looking upwards but full of uncertainty. She didn't know anything. She reached out finding solid ground, she turned over with a groan placing both arms in front of her chest pushing back, and she raised her upper body to look around.
Confusion was evident, as the girl sat up into kneeling position. She looked at her hands, and then brought one to her hair, which was pure white, she looked at it, as she brought it forward, seeing some stands glow like silver. Her clothes was only a tattered Dress with semi-long sleeves the clothes bore of that they had been wet, but they were now frozen dry.
After she had taken herself in, she was looking around. She was lying on a frozen lake.
She looked from left to right having no clue on, how she got there. She looked upwards at a big moon.
"… When I saw the moon, it was like all my fears and the darkness vanished. It was shining so brightly, it scared the darkness away, making me seem like I was glowing just the same"
The Girl looked at the moon with questions, that she didn't know how to begin with. She rose up her feet came into contact with something a staff was laying in front of her. She reached down taking it in both hands, seeing it glow a light blue, where her hands were touching. Experimenting she touched a tree trunk with it, frowning she saw frost spreading.
"I found that I had mysterious powers over frost, I felt like a child who discovered something wonderful"
Giving a bright smile at it she began to run around spreading flowery frost before a wind got hold of her, sending her a couple of feet into the air. While up there she noted a village not far from there using the wind, she glided over landing close to one of the persons, who was walking sad around.
"I wanted to know why they were sad, what had happened, but…"
"How could this happen?" she heard one of them say.
"What happened here" she tried, but they didn't talk to her, her concern brought her closer to them. But as she reached out to one; her hand went through the person, shocking her, "hello?"
People continued to walk around her watching the surroundings, "how could this have happened?"
"So many of us survived"
"Where is she?"
"Where is who?"
"My sister, she went down to clean herself after rescuing me"
The girl watched the scene in front of her; she ran forward trying to get their attention. Stumbling she went through several making her understand; that no one could see her.
Downcast she began to leave looking over her shoulder at the activity, that appeared and voices screaming a name, which sounded like the one that she should know well.
"…they couldn't see me or hear me"
She walked off into the night sad and much more confused, than when she woke up. She looked up at the moon with a pleading look, but now it was silent. It had only said four words to her more it never had. Around her snow began to fall silently why she didn't understand until later.
"My name is Lucia, how do I know that? The Moon told me and that's all it ever told me and it has been a long, long time since then"
