Chapter 1 | Out of Control （Part2）
Elsa laughed at the lopsided snowman. “Hi, I’m Olaf,” she said in a deep voice, pretending to be the snowman. “And I like warm hugs.”
The girls danced around their funny snowman. Then Elsa gathered her icy magic and made a swooping ice slide. Anna squealed with delight. She climbed to the top of the slide, then zoomed down and soared up again along the icy curve. Elsa quickly created another slide to catch Anna as she came down. The little girl gained speed and was tossed upward again. Elsa had to work fast to keep pace with Anna. She kept making more slides so her sister could stay aloft as she flew around the room.
“Anna, slow down,” Elsa said, starting to get worried.
“It’s too high!” But Anna was having fun. The little princess was fearless, jumping and sliding to each new slide as quickly as Elsa made it. Elsa raised her hand to create the next slide, but suddenly, her foot slipped. As she stumbled, her magic went awry. Her frozen blast caught the side of Anna’s head, right through her curls.
Anna gasped and fell to the ground, unconscious. “Anna!” Elsa shouted, running to her sister. She lifted Anna up and felt her cold, shivering body. A lock of Anna’s hair had turned pure white where the magic had hit it. “Mama! Papa!” Elsa cried desperately.
As she called for help and her worry increased, icicles formed on the ceiling, and frozen spikes grew tall around the girls.
The king and queen burst into the Great Hall to find their daughters huddled in a frozen landscape. They knew that Elsa had a special ability to create ice, but this was more than they’d ever seen. “Elsa,” the king cried. “This is getting out of hand!”
“I’m sorry,” Elsa replied in distress. “I didn’t mean it!”
“Anna!” the queen gasped, and ran toward her little girl.
