It's so cold.
It's so cold, I can't feel my fingers or my toes.
The only thing I can feel is the shard of the dark mirror, freezing my heart from the inside out.
What does Gerta think of me now? She must think me horrible.
I stare down at the pieces of ice I have been trying to arrange all this time, wishing only one word to come out of them.
Eternity.
Eternity, what a word. 
Eternity. What good is Eternity, when my heart is a lump of ice, and I cannot feel a thing?
Nothing but this shard of the mirror, turning my heart to ice.
The Snow Queen, the one who had taken me to this place, is not here for the moment, yet I still wish to make these pieces spell out that word: Eternity.
"I must hasten away to warmer countries," She had said, before leaving. I do not know what she meant, but I do not care. All I care about is that word. Eternity.
I hear the great door of the hall open, but I do not look up from the pieces of ice.
I hear dear Gerta's voice call out to me, yet I s
