Abbey is enjoying the late Spring blizzard, and has paused to observe the tulips that are attempting to push through the ice and snow. Though the yeti hates to see winter end, the prospect of getting everyone outside for some fresh air is definitely appealing. The sound of something thrashing through the growth behind her dispelled the peaceful mood, and prompted the yeti to scramble into a seated position.
|"Whew! Safe! And the crowd goes WILD!"|
To her surprise, Nii sprints through the underbrush and slides in next to her as if she was running for her life. An eight foot high wave of slush and snow glides past, cementing the yeti's suspicion that the troublesome imp has done something wrong.
|"Say uh... Abbey... You don't have any great advice about fighting someone with ice powers, do you?"|
"You have angered Snow Queen," Abbey observes dryly, and smirks when Nii's victorious grin falls into something a little more death-fearing.
"Maybe... just a little... around the edges," Nii admits, scrambling to her feet as Abbey stands. In the distance, a rumbling avalanche thunders.
|"I just need you to stand in between us for a few years. You'd do that for a friend, right?"|
Abbey rolls her eyes and stalks off, leaving Nii to trot behind as the snowline on the ground trembles and changes.
"What you do to make Snow Queen so upset?" Abbey asks as she takes a seat on the nearby planter.
|"Oh you know.. just annihilated her sister in a friendly surprise snowball ambush.."|
"Say.. what's with the snow?" Nii asks, hooking a thumb back at the vanishing stuff. "Don't tell me Elsa's gathering it up like a giant... OH CRAP."
So saying, Nii takes flight once more, leaving a baffled Abbey to wonder what revelation the mischievous creature had. She supposed that she'd find out when the explosion happened.
Nii races for a new hiding place, only to discover that she's run right into an ambush.
|"I understand you like playing in the snow?"|
|"Heyyyyy, Elsa! What's uh... new?"|
|"I'll even be a sport and give you a head start."|
Nii hesitates only for a moment before she takes off at a dead run again. The puffy white dog excitedly begins to bark as Elsa summons her magic. Elsa waits until Nii has only just reached the foot of the palace, then sends the enormous snowball forth.
In the distance, Nii yelps as she's bowled end over end by the giant projectile.
"All is forgiven, Nii!" Elsa calls pleasantly as she collects her pet and walks away.
This is probably the last hurrah of our winter weather, so I knew I had to get some shots of the gals out in it, especially Elsa and Abbey! This stuff was almost entirely ice, with a mere dusting of snow on top. (Getting enough snow together to splatter both Anna and Nii was a bit of a chore!) Here are some pics that I didn't use for this photostory:

|Abbey looks fantastic in Disney Fairy Periwinkle's pirate garb!|
I've been having trouble getting Photobucket, where I store my pictures, to load for me. I'm not sure if it's a traffic thing or what. Sorry for the long wait for part two of this little tale!
