AN: So, I decided to write an unrequited love story (or at least unrequited to Elsa). If you watch OUAT, you'll know where this scene is from. If you say Mulan/Aurora, you're right! Yay!
Anyways, all aboard the sadness train.
"Just gathering my courage"
This was it.
I'm going to tell her. 'I love you, Anna. More than a sister'
I held a rose made out of ice, hidden behind my back as I tried to think happy thoughts.
There's a huge possibility that Anna loves you the way you love her. More than just sisters. I hold her hand when possible and she doesn't pull away. I kiss her in the cheek at night, I would see her rosy cheeks blush.
With Kristoff out of the picture for a month now, this is my chance. This is it.
I knocked on Anna's door and opened it. I saw her smiling widely as she saw me come in. "Elsa!" Anna ran up to me and hugged me. I kept one hand behind my back, holding the ice rose. "What are you doing here? You're usually in your study at this time"
"Just gathering my courage" I smiled widely.
"Courage?" Anna asked, linking her arm with my free arm, we closed the door and slowly walked around the halls.
I looked down at Anna's huge smile, she couldn't stop giggling for no known reason so far. I tried to look into her eyes but her eyes were plastered, wandering around.
"Why are you so… happy?" I asked, "I mean… happier than usual" I faced her. With the rose behind my back, I started twirling it around because I was so nervous.
"I know I should let you say your news first but Kristoff just came over and asked for me again. We're back together, Elsa"
"Oh…" My smiled dropped but I put on a fake smile on to not be obvious, "That's great" I said in a whisper, tightening my fist on the rose.
"Another thing… Look, Elsa, I know you're my older sister and I hope that you let me make my own decisions this time… Kristoff asked me to marry him. We've been dating for a year now, Elsa. We just had a break cause we argued about something stupid. You know Kristoff, he's a nice guy"
"Yeah… yeah" I just said avoiding eye contact now. I let the ice rose disperse into tiny water particles and let it go.
"Are you okay?"
"I—uhm—I just wished he came to me first" I lied. I never want him to come to me asking for Anna's hand in marriage. But Anna had said yes, she loves him. I can see the love in their eyes.
"He said he was scared you would say no"
I didn't speak. I just looked away. Hiding the pain in my eyes.
A few more moments passed by in an awkward silence. "You were going to tell me something?"
"Oh—uhm—yes. I—was gonna—I" I stuttered not knowing what to say. Telling her the truth was simply useless now that I know she'll never reciprocate the feelings. She'll never see me anything above an older sister.
I took a deep breath, "I was wondering if you'd watch over Arendelle for a few weeks. I'm heading to London for a few weeks"
"When are you leaving?"
"In a few days"
"Why so sudden?"
I shrugged my shoulders. I have to tell the crew to sail to London in a few days. There wasn't really anything to do in London. Maybe I could just relax. Get things off my head for once.
"I should go, I still have unfinished paperwork" I started walking away from Anna.
"Elsa…" I turned around upon hearing my name, "Are you sure that's what you were going to say?"
I just nodded and continued walking.
