Teenage Days: Chapter EightAster had a hard time looking Jack in the eye now that he knew Jack loved him, he also would blush quite often when Jack would get close. Jack seemed very concerned about him, though he thought it was just Aster's cold that was making him behave strangely.
He shivered slightly as he slipped out of Jack's house. Jack had gone out to "work" while Aster should be in bed, resting, but he had to talk to someone, try to comprehend what was happening. The North Pole was the first place he thought of to go; all the other Guardians should be there, Tooth should be there. Tooth was the easiest Guardian to talk to for Bunnymund, she was very understanding and would try to help in any way she could.
Trudging through the snow, he looked for one of his concealed tunnels that he knew to be around. "Ah ha!" Aster exclaimed out loud as he found a tunnel, opening it. He jumped down and closed the tunnel behind him.
It was slow going as he couldn't race down the tunnels like he normally did in his Pooka
Teenage Days: Chapter Seven"ACHOO!" Bunnymund sneezed loudly.
Jack had carried Aster back to his house and when the former Pooka had awakened he told the winter spirit why he had run off. Well, not the whole truth, he kept the fact that Eros told him that Jack was in love with someone from him.
He was now sick in bed from staying out in the snow too long. Jack was taking care of him though, which surprised Aster as he was sure Jack would just call one of the other Guardians to do it to get out of taking care of him.
"This is what you get for chasing Cupid, Aster," Jack said as he passed a bowl of soup over to the former Pooka.
Now Aster didn't remember telling Jack that he could call him Aster, everything right before he blacked out was a haze. Normally he didn't like being called Aster as it meant that someone was close to him and he had a hard time accepting others getting close to him ever since the rest of the Pooka race was killed off, but strangely he liked when Jack called him Aster. He didn't know why; h
Teenage Days: Chapter SixAster watched Jack as he played with Jamie and the boy's friends. They were having a snowball fight; Jack had caused another snow day just to have it with them. Aster refused to participate and stood off to the side, an odd feeling gripping his heart as he watched Jack play with the kids.
He tried shaking it off, but it would not leave him. He didn't know what the feeling was, but it involved Jack and anything that involved Jack he wanted nothing apart of. A small growl escaped his lips as he saw Jamie tackle Jack from behind.
He stopped the growl short as he realized he was making the noise. Why would he do such a thing! His green eyes widen as a thought came to him. It can't be! I'm not… Why would I be…? Impossible!
"Jealous, are we?" a voice asked next to him.
Aster stiffened, he knew that voice. He whirled around and spotted Cupid standing next to him. "Eros!" he growled. "I'm not jealous! Why would I be jealous?"
Eros just giggled in reply.
"Enough of that, I need some seri
Teenage Days: Chapter FiveAster stood in front of a large fireplace in North's workshop, tapping his foot impatiently. It had been nearly a week since he had been turned into a teenager and finally word was sent out that North had found something. Now if only the old man would show up and tell him what it was.
Toothiana and Sandy were nearby, though both were busy; Tooth speaking orders to her minitooths and Sandy snoring away, deep asleep.
Jack was nearby too, talking with one of the yetis, well Jack was talking to the yeti while the yeti was trying to work. The sight made Aster's mind return to what had been bothering him ever since Eros paid a visit.
Jack Frost was in love according to the self-proclaimed God. And while that made sense with how strange the winter spirit was behaving, for the life of him Aster could not figure out who the kid was in love with.
He had gone through the list of people he knew that Jack knew and had slowly discarded them all out. There was no way it was Sandy or North. Frost had
Teenage Days: Chapter FourAster would watch Jack out of the corner of his eye as the white haired spirit skated on bare feet around the frozen lake. It had been a day since he talked to Eros and two days since he was changed into this cursed body. But what Eros had said to him, really had worked him up. Jack Frost was in love, according to the spirit of love. But with who?
He narrowed his eyes in deep thought. Jack didn't know many people, so surely there wasn't that big of a list of who it could be.
Could it be Toothiana? Tooth was already so kind and smitten with the winter spirit, maybe Jack developed feelings for her. It made the most sense, after all who in their right mind would have feelings for North or Sandy?
But what about that Jamie kid? The kid was the first to believe in Jack Frost after all. But surely the immortal knew it was dangerous to fall for a mortal, however Jack was still young for an immortal and so maybe he didn't know.
"Hey, Bunny! Come join me!" Jack called to the former Pooka
Teenage Days: Chapter ThreeThe two Guardians didn't talk much that night; well Bunny didn't talk much while Jack couldn't seem to stop talking. Bunny tuned most of it out as he moped over his new body. He tried talking to the Man in the Moon, but Manny was silent to him. Perhaps he was speaking to North about his condition?
Aster retired early to Jack's guest room, mainly to get away from the talkative winter spirit. He had never seen Jack so talkative before and it unnerved him. Something must be up with the white haired teen, he decided.
Eventually, the Guardian of Hope fell into a restless yet dreamless sleep.
When he awoke the next morning to sunlight streaming in through the window, he was not rested at all. He groaned softly as he opened his eyes.
"Good morning, sleeping beauty!" Jack chimed, sounding way too happy as he loomed over the teen in the bed, a strange expression that Bunny couldn't place on his face.
"ARGH!" Aster let out as he scrambled back to get away from the white haired youth that was so
Teenage Days: Chapter TwoE. Aster Bunnymund grumbled as he tugged at the clothing he now wore. North had gave him them, but of course the sizes were all wrong; the long-sleeved shirt was too large and baggy and the pants had to be held up by a belt as they too were too big and they weren't nearly long enough for his long legs.
At least he wasn't reduced to a baby bunny again.
"I look bloody stupid," he growled as the sleeves fell over his hands again. He, Toothiana, Sandy, and Jack were waiting around North's workshop as the Guardian of Wonder searched for a cure in his library.
"Well, I think you look dashing," Jack said with a grin on his face as he leaned on his staff.
Aster rolled his green eyes; of course the winter spirit would say that to get on his nerves. "Have you found anything to change me back yet, North?" he asked as the big man walked into the room.
"No, not yet. But be patient, Bunnymund, we've only just started looking," North told him.
Aster groaned; he didn't want to be stuck in this teenage
Teenage Days Chapter One"So why did you bring me up here, North?" Jack Frost asked as he walked with Nicholas St. North down the halls of North's workshop.
"I've called you here for a very important matter," North said as they walked down a hall with many rooms; Jack knew North kept these rooms furnished for the other Guardians or whoever else would visit the old man.
"Is it Pitch? Has he escaped?" Jack asked, his mind running wild with what could be so important that North had to summon him to the North Pole.
"Pitch? No, no," North said and stopped in front of a door which Toothiana and Sandy were standing in front of.
"Bunny, would you please come out?" Toothiana said in a gentle voice to the door.
"What's up with the Easter Kangaroo?" Jack asked, confused now.
Sandy turned to him and began to make pictures in his dream sand. Bunnymund appear in the sand only for a door slamming to replace the picture. This confused the young winter spirit even more.
"Bunnymund has locked himself in his room and won't come
