Jack Frost waited outside the medical room, pacing back and forth impatiently down the long hallway of Santa's home. From behind him, he heard the sound of footsteps running toward him. As Jack turned around to see who the mysterious person was, he saw North aka Santa, stumbling over his own two feet. As North approached Jack, he tripped over his own feet and landed face first in front of Jack.
"I am fine, how is Rapunzel?" North asked lifting himself up and began to dust off his red suit. North glanced at Jack with his big childlike eyes, causing Jack to roll his eyes at his fellow guardian.
'North really knows how to lighten the mood sometimes.' Jack thought to himself settling down in a chair outside the medical room. "I don't know North, all I know is that she is still alive. Your doctor elf isn't very good at holding a conversation either" Jack watched a smirk appear upon North's lips.
"You are a strange one Jack, but is very funny of you to bring up the elf's manner during such a wonderful event." North exclaimed as if he was pleased of Jacks remark. Jack chuckled at the old man's enthusiasm before turning his head toward the door waiting for at least one elf to come out with good news. Jack leaned forward, fiddling with his fingers, and kept thinking of Rapunzel. North saw the discomfort in Jacks body language and remembered that Jack had no idea what to do. He sat beside Jack throwing his arm over the young lad, pulling Jacks tiny body into a side hug.
"Jack you no need to worry about what is going to happen; you are good kid, and good husband. Remember the first time you made mistake?" North asked.
"Well of course North, but this is a little more complicated than freezing the kangaroo in his own hole." North nodded his head at the young man, pressing his finger at Jacks heart continuing with his point.
"See I...wait…what? That was your first mistake?" North's happy expression turned into a worried one in less than a second, "We will discuss that later, but no Jack, vat I'm trying to say is that when you realized how important your job was to you no longer made mistake. You remembered what you do wrong and you fix problem. You matured for job, no big deal to some, but have great effect for important situations."
"I don't think your understanding this North, this isn't some winter issue were talking about you know? You can't just tell me what I'm supposed to do because you don't even have …." Before Jack was able to finish, the medical door slowly opened revealing a tiny elf. Both the men stood up out of their seats and walked over to the tiny elf. Jack just wanted to know if Rapunzel was ok, he had been in that hallway for almost an hour contemplating on what was going on. He had no idea what to expect, no other guardian had a situation quite like his, at least, none that he knew of.
The elf gestured the two to follow him into the room where Rapunzel laid holding a tiny baby wrapped in a white blanket. She looked down at the baby with loving eyes, lifting her head to look up at Jack and North with that beautiful smile Jack always loved to see. Jack had never seen his wife so happy in his entire life, he could remember only one time that she had given him that look across her face and that was when she fell in love with him.
"Jack, are you just going to stand there and look at me like that or come over and meet your daughter?" Rapunzel asked him, still smiling up at him as she held the child close to her heart. Jack didn't notice he had been standing in the entrance of the doorway admiring her from a distance. Truth is he was afraid to walk over to her side, what if he made a mistake holding the baby and she fell or he ended up making her to cold. He did not want his daughter to be hurt or worse hurt by him.
North pushed his way through the door pushing Jack out of his way, causing the young man to fall onto the ground with his staff, "I want to hold mAlinkaya dyEvochka, little girl!" North exclaimed as he rushed to Rapunzel's side, holding out his arms to her, and awaited to hold the tiny infant in his arms.
Rapunzel let out a small chuckle at North allowing him to hold her daughter in his arms. She listened as North began to sing her daughter a Russian lullaby gently swaying the baby in his arms. She admired North's childlike attitude, she knew North was of course Santa Clause, who loved children more than anything, but seeing him with her daughter made her realize just how much his job meant to him.
Rapunzel looked over to her husband who was still standing beside the door frame watching North with both jealousy and admiration in his light blue eyes. "Jack?" Rapunzel said his name with curiosity catching his attention. Jack walked slowly over to her other side avoiding the very jolly old man.
Jack gave Rapunzel a charming smirk, leaning against his staff, and stared deep into his wife's green hazy eyes. To him she looked more radiant besides the sweat and her tiredness just the way her eyes danced with joy. Being a mother must be exciting new journey for Rapunzel, from the way her eyes glanced at their daughter and then back at him, he could honestly see her eyes dancing.
Jack saw his wife begin to scold him, "Jack why are you avoiding holding your daughter?" before Jack could speak up Rapunzel had beat him to it, "I already checked for fangs so I'm pretty sure she is nothing like the stories Gothel had told me about babies so you don't need to worry about her trying to bite you."
"No Punzie, it's not that," Jack sighed placing his hand on Rapunzel's check, "I'm just afraid of hurting her, she's so small and delicate, and I'm all mistake and disaster."
"Jack that's not true, everyone makes mistakes every now and again, this is just a new situation for both of us." She turned her face into Jacks palm, kissing his ice-cold skin with her rosy lips, "I believe you're going not going to hurt her in anyway." Rapunzel told him grasping his hand with her own.
Jack looked down at his wife, 'She always has something to say, just like North and maybe she's right.' He thought to himself. Jack gave his wife's hand a squeeze before slowly walking over to North to look at his little girl. Jack looked down at the tiny infant, her skin was snow white like his own, her hair was a blonde pale color, and she had Rapunzel's looks.
North looked down at Jack who was staring at the sleeping babe, he watched Jack place his staff along the wall quietly before reaching his arms out to hold her. North smiled at Jack and slowly placed the sleeping infant into Jacks arms. The old man crossed his arms in front of his chest releasing a joyous laugh, "See Jack not so bad, you hold baby like pro, no?"
Jack smiled down at his daughter, she was so light, and small he could not believe how much she resembled her mother. Jack ignored North's comment and just swayed his little girl in his arms, whispering a promise only he and his sleeping daughter could hear, "I'm going to be the best dad I can be for you, I'm going to keep you safe from all harm, I promise."
Jack slowly walked over to Rapunzel's side still gazing at his daughter with that adoring smile of his. Rapunzel looked up at her husband and spoke, "You know Jack she still does not have a name yet. I wanted to wait until you came into the room to see her, so we both could decide on a name."
Jack thought about girl names, he had been around the world and learned so many girls name, but he could only think of his little sisters name Emma, and then it hit him, "Elsa, lets name her Elsa."
"I think that's a wonderful name, Elsa Lynn Frost." Jack smiled at his wife in agreement and sat down beside Rapunzel placing Elsa in her arms. "Why Elsa, Jack?" Rapunzel asked in curiosity looking into Jacks blue eyes.
He tilted his head as if she did not know, "Because my sister's middle name was Elsa, it seemed to fit our daughters name just right I think." Jack held onto Elsa's tiny hand, he could feel the infants grip tighten a death hold on his pinky finger. "She's strong Punzie; she must get that from her old man."
North gave Jack a shove that was hard enough to knock him over, "Child not have grip like her uncle North, and I will teach her everything I know about how to fight. Then when she is ready, she can take a few swings at her old man eh? What you think Jack?"
Jack chuckled at the thought of his daughter Elsa, trained to fight by old Santa himself, "I think that maybe Elsa isn't going to be a violent type of girl." Hopping off the bed, he turned and kissed his tired wife knowing she needed to get some rest. Jack watched the nursing elf's grab Elsa from Rapunzel's arms and carried her back into another room. North and Jack quietly left the room and began picking up their conversation in the hallway.
"And since when were you nominated to be Elsa's uncle?" Jack asked with a raised eyebrow.
"I am Santa Clause, and since I am the one who gives out presents each year, I say I am uncle." North stated his point with his head held high as the two walked down into the Santa's workshop with the rest of the fellow guardians to share the good news.
