For the First Time in Forever

Little Elsa heard a knock at her door. She sighed to herself. She was so sick and tired of her sister singing 'do you want to build a snowman?' every so often. She didn't blame her though. She wanted to see her too, but due to her accidentally shooting her sister with her ice powers, her parents locked her up in her room. It was so unfair, but she understood. Although it was an accident, she was a danger to everyone. She could've killed Anna. She can never live this down.

But the strange thing was, there was no snow on the ground. So how could Anna want to build a snowman with her? She did it so much in the winter that she thought she'd ask again out of habit. Could she know about her powers? No. That was impossible. The trolls made her forget what happened that fateful day, and that her older sister was magic. Was it code for wanting to hang out and play? She just didn't know.

"I told you a thousand times, Anna!" She shouted at the door. "I don't want to build a snowman right now, not ever! There's not even snow outside!"

"It's Gerta, sweetheart!" A voice shouted back. Gerta! One of the many maids working under her parents. But what was she doing talking to her? She wasn't allowed to see her. No one but her parents were.

"What do you want?"

"I want to know how you are!"

"I'm fine, Gerta!"

"Oh, Elsa. No, you're not. I'm coming in." Elsa's eyes widened.

"What?! No, Gerta! You can't! You're going to get fired." But it was too late, Gerta came inside anyways. Elsa stepped away from her.

"I don't care. This isn't right, keeping a child locked up in here all day. You should be outside, enjoying your childhood while you still have one."

"I wish I could, Gerta, truly I do. But I can't."

"Why ever not?"

"I just can't, okay?"

"Are you sick?"

"No."

"Well, why can't you?"

"Uh, I just can't."

"That's not a good answer. I'm taking you outside this minute." She began to pull on her arm, but Elsa pulled back.

"Nooooo!"

"What are you so afraid of?"

"Nothing. I..." She so wanted to tell Gerta about her magical powers, but couldn't. "I just don't feel like going outside is all." Gerta sighed.

"Alright, dear. I understand. But I hope you do one day, The outside air will do you good." She turned to go.

Elsa thought about this. She supposed going outside for a little while wouldn't be so bad. Plus, she hasn't been outside for months. It felt like forever. She decided.

"Wait, Gerta!" She said. Gerta turned to her. "I'm ready to go outside." Gerta smiled.

"Oh, splendid!"

"But on one condition." Gerta frowned at this.

"What's that?"

"My parents can't know about this." She nodded.

"I won't tell them." Elsa looked at the window.

"I say we use the window to get down, That way no one can see us." Gerta was shocked.

"What? No! That's too dangerous. Come. Gerta has a better plan." Elsa sighed, but chose to trust her.

"Alright. What is it?"

Gerta asked Elsa to leave her gloves, but Elsa refused to take them off. Gerta sighed and just opened the door exiting Elsa's room. She looked around, and didn't see anyone in the hallway.

"Is the coast clear, Gerta?" Elsa wanted to know.

"Yes, it is." She whispered to her. Elsa was about to go out when she saw her mom approach. She ran back into the room. Queen Iduna looked at Gerta, confused.

"What are you doing outside of my daughter's room, Gerta?" She asked her, "You know no one but us are allowed inside."

"I know your Highness. I was just passing by."

"Okay." Iduna was about to go when Gerta spoke up again.

"Why can't she go outside may I ask?" Elsa sighed. Oh, Gerta! Why must adults always meddle in these situations?

"She just can't. You wouldn't understand."

"That's not a good answer and you know it. You can't let your daughter stay indoors all day. She has to be a kid, and enjoy the outdoors. This is wrong. I'm sorry, but you and the king are cruel if you continue to do this." Iduna sighed, and looked mad at her.

"My husband and I aren't evil." She began. "You think we want Elsa to stay locked in all day? She's my baby. I just want the best for her, and to me, this might be it. You might not understand or like it, but keeping Elsa isolated is for the best. We're trying our best, so if you know what's good for you, you will stay out of this."

"But..."

"No buts, Gerta. If you ever bring this up again, you will be fired. Do you understand?"

"I don't, so why don't you explain it to me?"

"No."

"Your Highness, I won't understand unless..."

"Enough! She can't go out, that's all you need to know. I will talk to my husband, and you will be fired if this continues."

"But..."

"Understand?!" Gerta sighed.

"Yes, your Highness. I understand."

"Good. Continue your work." Iduna then left down the hall.

"I told you we should use the window." Elsa said to Gerta when her mom was out of earshot. Gerta looked at her.

"No. Still too dangerous."

"So, I'm not going outside?" Gerta thought about this.

"No, you're still going outside." Elsa gasped.

"You mean you're going to disobey Mama and Papa? Oh, you are so fired!"

"I don't care. You mother's right. I don't understand, and I never will for this is ridiculous. I'm taking you outside, end of story."

"Okay. I really do want to go outside, and be a kid again." Gerta smiled.

"I know you do, child. Now, come." She held up her dress. "Hide under here so you won't be seen."

"Okay." Little Elsa went under her dress. "Stay under there, and make sure no one sees you." Elsa nodded. "And are you sure you want the gloves?"

"I'm sure."

"Okay. Whatever you want. You're the princess." Gerta went down the halls. Elsa walked as she stayed hidden under her dress.

As they roamed the halls, Elsa peeked out at everything. The little girl truly missed this. She couldn't believe she was about to do this with Gerta. It could spell disaster for them both, but she was glad she was doing it. She wished she could invite Anna with her, but she didn't want to take this any further then she had to. She was going outside! That was the first step. Hopefully she'd be able to invite Anna soon.

A while later, they were outside. Elsa was glad to see all of the sights. She still hid under Gerta's dress until it was safe for her to come out.

"Okay." Gerta said. "It's safe, little one. Elsa peeked out, and went out. She marveled at the sights, and smelled the fresh air. She laughed as she twirled around.

"This is amazing, Gerta! I never felt so free! I sure hope you won't get fired over this."

"I hope so too. I want to see you and your sister grow to be the best ladies I know you two will be." Elsa ran up to her, and hugged her. Gerta was surprised by this.

"Thank you! You don't know what this means to me." Gerta smiled.

"Of course, anything for you little one." A ball then bounced by them. They looked. A boy ran up to them.

"May we have that ball back?" He asked. "My friends and I were playing, and it came here."

"Sure." Elsa picked it up, and thought of something. The boy was confused.

"Uh, the ball, please?"

"Can I play with you?"

"Well, I don't know how my buddies will feel playing with a girl." She smirked to herself.

"Afraid you'll lose to a girl?" The boy was shocked.

"What? No way! We can totally beat a girl." She threw the ball back to him with such force that it hit him in the stomach.

"You're on!"

"You're on, too! I'm Askel by the way."

"Elsa." Elsa looked at Gerta. "Will it be okay if I go with him, Gerta? I have a score to settle." Gerta nodded.

"By all means." Elsa thanked her yet again, and she and Askel went off. Gerta sat on a nearby bench.

Elsa and Askel met some other boys in a big park. They split up into two teams, ready to play Annie Over, which made Elsa think of her sister. Askel noticed this.

"You okay, Elsa?" He asked. Elsa looked at him, snapping back into reality.

"Oh, yeah. I'm fine. It's just that I have a sister named Anna so it reminded me of her." This made Askel shocked.

"Like Princess Anna and Elsa? We're playing with the Elsa? Wow!" He told his friends who were all impressed. "So, should we bow to you?"

"Oh, no. That's not necessary." One of his friends saw her gloves.

"It's warm out." He said. "Take off the gloves."

"She wants to wear them for some reason, Jonas." Askel said to him. Jonas rolled his eyes.

"Whatever, weirdo." Askel turned back to the princess.

"Maybe you can invite Anna over one of these days to play."

"Yeah." Elsa agreed even though she didn't think so. "Maybe."

"What are you doing, Askel?" Jonas asked him. "You're not going to invite girls to play with us now, are you?" Askel glared at him.

"Shut up, Jonas! I can invite whoever I want."Jonas rolled his eyes, and looked at Elsa.

"You better not make us lose." He said to her.

"I'll try my best." She could only promise him.

A little while later, Askel was the only one left on his team, and Elsa was the only one left on hers. Elsa had the ball.

"I won't go easy on you!" He warned her. "So give it your all!"

"I don't expect you to go easy on me!" Elsa shouted back. "And I will give it my all!"

"Okay. Give me your best shot!"

Elsa looked at the log that they were all throwing over, and threw it as high as she could. Askel ran, trying to catch it, but failed. Elsa and her team had won! She and her team all cheered. Jonas looked at her.

"You're good for a girl. I'm sorry I underestimated you." Elsa smiled.

"Thank you." She then smelled something good, and sighed heavenly.

"Is that a Lefse I smell?" She wanted to know.

"I think so." Askel told her. "Do you want some?" Elsa got excited.

"Yes!" She then frowned. "Oh, I don't have any money."

"That's okay. I can buy one for you. It'll be my treat for your team beating me." Elsa grinned from ear to ear.

"Really?" Askel nodded.

"Really. It's no problem."

"Wow, thanks, Askel! You're the best!" Jonas gave his friend a sly grin.

"Ooh, Askel!" He said with a whistle. "Your first girlfriend!" Askel glared at him once again.

"Shut up, Jonas!" He said to him. "I'm just being nice."

"Sure, whatever!" Askel turned back to Elsa.

"Sorry about him."

"That's okay." Elsa said back. "You just lead me to that sweet, sweet Lafse." And so, all of the kids ran to the Lafse stand.

"You know," Elsa began as all of the children were eating their Lafses. "This is my first time being outside in a long time." Askel looked at her, shocked.

"Really?" Elsa nodded. "Not even for school?"

"No. My parents teach me in our enormous castle."

"ELSA!" A mad, familiar voice shouted. Elsa looked, and gasped. It was her mother! What was she doing here? Granted this was their kingdom, but still! What was she doing here?

"It's the queen!" Askel said. He and his friends all bowed. "We were just playing a game with your daughter, your Highness. May Anna come play with us someday?" Iduna looked at the boys.

"I'm sorry." She apologized. "Anna may not play. Elsa will not play with you anymore. She made a grave mistake, and will not do it ever again." They were all shocked as the queen grabbed Elsa's hand, dragging her away. "Come Elsa. I'm so disappointed in you. Papa will be too when I explain it to him."

"But why?" Askel asked. "What mistake? Was it something that we did, or I did? I...I don't understand."

Gerta stood back up from the bench as soon as she saw the mad queen dragging Elsa back.

"Your Highness!" She said. "Please, you must understand. All I ever wanted was your daughter to be happy again. She was miserable inside all the time. Don't you and the king want her happy as well? I did nothing wrong." Elsa gasped when she saw her mother slap Gerta on the cheek. Gerta was surprised too.

"I told you not to take Elsa outside. You disobeyed me. You're fired. Go pack up your things. You leave tomorrow. I'll speak to my husband about you." Gerta frowned, ashamed for what she did.

"Yes, your Highness." Elsa felt bad. She wanted to speak up, to defend Gerta, but didn't for fear she would make it much worse then it already is. And with that, they all headed back towards the castle.

The next morning, Elsa heard a knock at the door to her room. She sighed again, thinking it was Anna.

"Go away, Anna!" She yelled.

"It's me, Gerta!" Gerta called from the other side. "I'm here to say goodbye."

"Gerta!"

The minute the door opened, the little princess ran up to hug her.

"I'm sorry I got you fired, Gerta." She apologized.

"Aw, there's no need for that." Gerta responded. They then withdrew from each other. "As long as you were happy outside, I accomplished my mission. You were happy, right?"

"Oh, yes." Elsa said. "I was. I haven't been happy in a long time before yesterday." Gerta smiled.

"Good. A little girl needs to be happy. Us grown girls too. Everyone deserves to be happy."

"Did you say goodbye to my sister?"

"Yes."

"I wish you didn't have to go."

"I wish so too." Elsa hugged her again.

"I'll miss you, Gerta. Thank you so much. I'll never forget you."

"I'll miss you too, and I'll never forget you or your sister either. You are such sweet girls. Shame what happened between you two." The two hugged a little while longer.

Elsa waved goodbye to Gerta from her window. Gerta did the same to her. She may not understand why the king and queen decided to split up the girls, and keep Elsa isolated in her room, but she wished for the best for her. She wished it for Anna too, even for the king and queen, and for all of Arindelle.

Both king and queen watched as Gerta left from their window in their room, The two felt bad, and that they were awful parents. None of them wanted this. They wanted the best for their two young daughters. They wanted to see them play, and to get along. They wanted them to go outside, be with other kids their age, and to have fun. They wanted Gerta back. She was right, She didn't do anything wrong. She just wanted Elsa to be happy again, just like they did. But until Elsa could control her powers, they didn't want to risk it. They knew what they were doing was painful, but it was for the best. They hope she and the entire kingdom would understand For the First Time in Forever
