Inside the dining room, Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi were standing near the window, looking out into the distance. While Ichabod was seated at the large table, beginning to clean his pipe, Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi were waiting patiently for Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy to arrive as he tried desperately to reason with the mountaineer, the Keyblade Wielder, the teenager, and the infant.
"Oh, Kristoff, be reasonable with your sisters," said Ichabod, feeling clearly amused while waving his pipe in the air. "Nice young ladies and gentlemen just don't - run around rescuing people in the middle of the snow and then - flutter off into oblivion, like some -"
Kristoff cut him off. "I'm tellin' you, Ichabod, she was REAL!" he said.
"I'm gonna find that boy." said Gogo.
"And I'm gonna marry him." said Kimi.
"Kimi, you're too young to get married yet," said Aqua. "You're 1½ years old. You have to be 16 years or older to get married."
She put her left hand over her chin, gazing out the glass windows. Suddenly, laughter was heard from behind her, Kristoff, Gogo, and Kimi. They turned their heads to see four lovers with the maid.
"Come on, darlings." said a voice, "Don't be shy."
It was the Fairy Godmother. She stood by the door frame, guiding the four lovers into the dining room.
Out of the shadows came Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy.
Anna was now wearing a black sweetheart bodice with off-the-shoulder dark green sleeves and rose, teal, blue, and purple prints on it, a greenish-gold trim, a black satin-laced necklace with a bronze pendant of Arendelle's symbol, an olive drab pleated skirt with sashes (consisting of asparagus centers with pink, crimson, dark olive green, olive drab, and blue prints on it between cream sides) and dark green pleats, a cream-colored petticoat, matching bloomers, white stockings, and black ballet shoes.
Hans was now wearing a British guard uniform that consists of a red shirt with gold trimming, dark blue pants with gold lining, a white belt with a gold buckle, a tall, fuzzy black hat, and black shoes.
Hiro was now wearing a white dress shirt, a red tuxedo jacket, matching trousers, a dark blue tie, black shoes, and a white rose on the left side of his jacket.
Tommy was now wearing a royal prince's uniform that consists of a light blue shirt with gold trimming, white pants with gold lining, a purple belt with a gold buckle, and green boots.
All of these were new looks for Anna and her bothers, and they showed that they were being treated well by the servants.
Kristoff and his sisters' eyes widened as Ichabod walked up behind the prince and princesses.
"Oh, children, aren't they visions?" asked Ichabod.
The grins they had were never slipping off their faces. Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi's mouths hung open. But they closed their mouths and swallowed, feeling somewhat nervous.
"You look - wonderful." Kristoff stammered.
"You look like my dream prince." said Aqua.
"You look like you're ready for the prom." added Gogo.
"And you, you look like a dream come true." Kimi agreed.
"Well, I am a prince after all." smiled Hans.
"I do look like I'm ready for the prom, don't I?" asked Hiro.
"I'm glad you think so." said Tommy.
Only Anna, unable to say, "Thank you," replied with a gentle blush, she shrugged her shoulders, appreciating the nice comment, a smile on her face as her green eyes looked up from behind her fringe.
Kristodd, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi blushed a light pink as Ichabod helped Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy into their chairs, quite enthusiastic, but not before giving the young prince and princesses light nudges. Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi pursed their lips, but grinned nonetheless.
"Come come come, you must be famished. Let me help you my dear. There we go - ah - quite comfy?"
He helped the princess and princes into their seats. Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi tucked the chairs under the table as the girl and boys sat down.
"Uh, it's...it's not ofen that we have such lovely dinner guests, eh, Kristoff?"
Anna wasn't playing attention anymore. She was too intrigued by the glistening silver 'dinglehopper' resting on the table. With a wide smile, she picked up the shiny object and began brushing her hair with it. She looked up to face a confused Hans, Hiro, Tommy, Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi and a horrified Ichabod. Anna delicately placed the 'dinglehopper' back on the table and looked down in embarrassment.
She bit her lip and looked up as she saw Ichabod using a lighter to ignite the coppery thing that Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy understood as a 'snarfblatt'. Ichabod kindly smiled at her, and handed her his pipe. "Uh, do you like it?" he asked, "It is a rather fine..."
Ichabod stopped in mid-sentence when the Norwegian girl blew into the pipe as if it was a trumpet, sending a cloud of smoke spurting out the top and straight into his face. Hans, Hiro, Tommy, Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi cracked up with laughter while the Fairy Godmother gave a small giggle. "Oh, my!" she exclaimed.
Aqua cleared her throat, trying to regain composure. "Ahem! So sorry, Ichabod."
The Fairy Godmother smiled, placing a hand on the young woman's shoulder. "Why, Aqua," she said. "That's the first time I've seen you, your siblings, and the girl's brothers smile in weeks."
Anna looked up from the table and smiled. "Oh, very amusing," said Ichabod, as he used a handkerchief to wipe the last bit of smoke of his face and sniffed. "Fairy Godmother, my dear, what's for dinner?"
"Oooh, you're gonna love it!" the Fairy Godmother smiled. "Chef's been fixing his specialty, roast squirrel!"
Eddie poked his head out from behind a sugar bowl and gasped upon seeing the chef of a French kitchen. He was a big, fat cat with back fur, a shaven peach muzzle, a black nose, and two white buckteeth. He wears white gloves, a salmon-colored dress shirt, a burgundy-and-black striped tie, forest green pants, black shoes, a white chef's hat, and a matching apron. His name was Pete Pete, the French chef of the kitchen. Pete rummaged through a cupboard. Singing in French to himself, he hummed to himself as he took a basket of trout and putting one on a counter. With his food ready, the cat chef started singing.
Pete: Les poissons
How I love les poissons
Love to chop
And to serve little fish
Grabbing the trout from the basket, Pete pulled out a cleaver and violently chopped off its head. This shocked Eddie horribly. Horrified that this was happening, Eddie hid his face.
Pete: First I cut off their heads
Then I pull out the bones
Ah mais oui
Ca c'est toujours delish
Taking out another trout, Pete took the cleaver and violently chopped off its head then proceeded to skin it and gut it while Eddie leaned against a wall and covered his mouth, feeling quite sick, feeling as if he may want to throw up.
Pete: Les poissons
Hee hee hee
Hah hah hah
With the cleaver I hack them in two
Taking out another trout, Pete again chopped its head and then chopped the rest of the body into tiny pieces. Eddie tried getting away, but he found himself face to face with the trout's head.
Pete: I pull out what's inside
And I serve it with fries
'Cause I love little fishes
After cutting the trout's head off, Pete pulled out the insides of the trout and cooked it on a frying pan before serving it on a plate.
Spotting a large lettuce leaf, Eddie grabbed the leaf and used it to disguise himself as he slowly scuttled away from an unsuspecting chef, who is too absorbed into his little fish hacking mania But Pete took a mallet and began smashing a tuna flat.
Pete: Here's something for tempting the palate
Prepared in the classic technique
First you pound the fish flat with a mallet
When Pete pounded the tuna flat with the mallet, Eddie flew off the counter along with other stuff on it. He hid again under the lettuce before hearing more gross stuff from Pete's preparations for the tuna.
Pete: Then you slash through the skin
Give the belly a slice
Then you rub some salt in
'Cause that makes it taste nice
When Pete was describing those horrid moves, Eddie cringed even more.
Just after Pete put the salt on he rather was holding the fish body close to his cheek, Eddie's worst fear was confirmed when the cook reached out and grabbed the lettuce leaf, leaving him exposed. The small squirrel kept perfectly still as the chef gasped,
"Oh my goodness!" exclaimed Pete, "I have missed one!" He picked up the 'dead' squirrel and continued singing,
Pete: Sacre bleu
What is this?
How on earth could I miss
Such a sweet little succulent squirrel?
What a loss
Here we go
In the sauce
Now some flour
I think just a swirl
Pete tossed Eddie into a bowl of sauce and threw a handful of flour in his face, making him cough and sneeze before pulling him out and stuffing some breadcrumbs in his mouth.
Pete: Now I stuff you with bread
It don't hurt 'cause you're dead
And you're certainly lucky you are
Eddie spat out the breadcrumbs and wheezed loudly. Pete didn't notice that the squirrel in his hand was still alive.
Pete: 'Cause it's gonna be hot
In my big silver pot
Pete threw Eddie across the room into a large pot of boiling water. Eddie held on to the inside of the pot before a bubble popped, burning him out of the pot and onto the counter with a loud thud.
Pete, hearing the 'thud', looked over to it being confused. He used a pitchfork-like utensil and stabs on either side of the squirrel, picking up Eddie and carefully inspected it. "What is this?" he asked. Eddie bit Pete's nose, making him scream in pain as he held his nose.
Eddie ended up on the handle of a pan on the stove. Pete reached for the squirrel, but instead put his gloved hand on the fiery hot stove. The chef screamed and blew on his hand as the pan fell onto his foot. Pete grabbed his foot and cried in pain, before sending Eddie an angry glare, grabbing a bunch of knives and hurling them at the squirrel.
Eddie, who ducked each knife, dove under the counter, and while the chef was looking under the counter, Eddie pushed the bowl of sauce off the counter. The bowl shattered on his head. Going more insane, Pete lifted his cleaver and brought it down. But all he managed to chop up was the counter.
He saw Eddie running for his life. Eddie screamed as he tried getting out. The cleaver landed right in front of him, stopping him from running that way. He quickly made a mad dash underneath Pete and hid underneath a cabinet of glasses and pottery. Pete screamed, holding his mallet in his hand, Eddie hid as the psychotic chef jumped and crashed into the shelves.
Back in the dining room, everyone heard loud crashes coming from the kitchen.
The Fairy Godmother, who was pouring drinks for the prince, the princesses, Ichabod, and their young guests, looked in the direction of the kitchen at the sound of a large crash. "I think I'd better go see what Pete" she said. Once she had excused herself, she hurriedly made her way to the palace kitchen.
Back in the kitchen, the insane chef, ripped clothes and all, was tearing apart the cabinet, mindlessly throwing things out of the way trying to find Eddie. "Come out, you little pipsqueak! AND FIGHT LIKE A MAN!" he snarled. He continued to tear apart a cupboard.
"Pete!" shouted the Fairy Godmother.
He shot up, banging his head on the shelf, causing several new pots and pans to fall or break on the floor, at the sound of the Fairy Godmother's shrill voice. His pants and apron were torn and stained, he only had his shoe on his left foot, his chef's hat was gone, and there was a hole in the elbow of his untucked shirt.
"What are you doing?" the Fairy Godmother demanded.
Pete stammered about what he was doing earlier. "Well - I - I was just - er, er, I'm sorry, madame." he finally said. The Fairy Godmother scowled at the fat cat as he gave her an apologetic grin and pinched out a fire that had started on the top of his head.
The Fairy Godmother picked up the plates - which all had a metal dome over the top - off a nearby bench, and storming out the kitchen. "Well, I never!" she muttered to herself.
Ichabod set his glass back on the table as the Fairy Godmother placed their dinners in front of him, Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, Kimi, Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy. "You know, Kristoff," he said. "perhaps our young guests might enjoy seeing some of the sights of the kingdom. Something in the way of a tour?"
Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi simply sat there, staring at Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy with lovestruck expressions on their faces. Realizing that Ichabod had said something to them, they snapped out of their daze. Kristoff let out a small chuckle and looked at Ichabod. "I'm sorry, Ichabod." he said, "What was that?"
Ichabod leaned over to the mountaineer and his sisters and whispered to them, "You can't spend all your time moping about, you need to get out. Do something, have a life. Get your mind off-"
As Ichabod complained, he opened his dish, and Eddie was huddled inside. Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy noticed Eddie and became worried. Eddie quietly shushed the worried girl, who opened her dish and urged for Eddie to quickly hide in hers.
"Easy, Ichabod, easy." said Aqua.
"It's not a bad idea. If they're interested." added Gogo.
As the five chatted, Eddie quickly and quietly dashed across the table and hid in Anna’s dish. With Eddie safe, Anna and her brothers quickly turned to Kristoff and his sisters.
"Well, whaddaya say?" asked Kimi. "Would you like to join us on a tour of our kingdom tomorrow?"
Tommy smiled broadly. "Sure, Kimi. I'd like that!" he said and nodded, genuinely excited by the prospect and also internally relieved, along with Anna, Hans, and Hiro.
"Wonderful!" beamed Ichabod, "Now let's eat, before this squirrell wanders off my plate." He looked down, only to be confused that Eddie had just run off his plate.
Dinner got carried on into the evening long after the sun had set and afterwards, Anna, Hans, Hiro, Tommy, Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, Kimi, and Ichabod went their separate ways.
Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy were now dressed in their nightclothes as they watched Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi play with Dodger from the balcony.
Anna was now wearing a warm, light fuschia silk nightgown with puffy sleeves, matching bloomers, a matching camisole (decorated with a pink bow on the chest), a matching hair-bow, a stylish matching bathrobe, and matching slippers.
Hans was now wearing a warm, light white flannel nightshirt with long sleeves, matching cotton leggings, matching socks, a stylish burgundy bathrobe, and matching slippers.
Hiro was now wearing a set of light blue pajamas that consists of a long-sleeved jacket with buttons and pants.
Tommy was now wearing green footy pajamas with snaps, a lighter green collar and wrists, and smooth white soles,
While Kristoff was still dressed in his regular day clothes from dinner, his sisters were also dressed in their nightwear.
Aqua was now wearing a warm, light mint-turquoise flannel nightgown, periwinkle-blue bloomers, a stylish blue bathrobe, and matching slippers.
Gogo was now wearing blue pajamas with teddy bears on them and polar bear slippers.
Kimi was now wearing baby pink footy pajamas with yellow stars, a zipper, and smooth baby pink soles.
"Come here boy!" Kristoff laughed to Dodger, "Arrr!!!" He knelt on the ground and Dodger ran up to him and barked. Kristoff growled playfully at the animal as he pinned Kimi down. She and her older siblings looked up and smiled when they saw that the young woman, the handsome prince, the teenage boy, and the baby they'd found on the beach that day, watching. Kimi waved at Tommy, and he waved back, before slipping further back with his older siblings into their room. Kristoff, Aqua, Gogo, and Kimi's eyes sparkled as their smiles widened. They were actually really looking forward to taking them around their kingdom tomorrow, and could only hope that they felt the same way.
Anna smiled as she brushed her untied hair with her fork before putting her hair-bow back in her hair and shedding her bathrobe. Eddie complained about his experience in the kitchen as he cleaned off the cooking spices. "This has got to be, without a doubt, the single most humiliating day of my life." he complained.
Tommy patted Eddie on the head as Anna picked him up and carried him to his bed.
"I hope you and your brothers appreciate what I go through for you, young lady!" scolded the squirrel, as he waved his lettuce leaf at Anna while she placed Tommy in his bed, which was a blue racing car bed with a creamy mattress, two matching pillows, and matching bedsheets. There were two scarlet red pillowcases covering the pillows. On the bedsheet-covered mattress, there was a scarlet red blanket to match the pillowcases. Tucked inside the racing car bed was a warm, light navy blue quilt on top of the blanket. Anna tucked Tommy in and kissed him on the forehead.
Hiro was already in his bed - a single bed with a white headboard, base, and footboard. His white mattress was covered with gray bedsheets, and his head was resting on only one white pillow. The pillow was covered with one gray pillowcase. Hiro's body was covered by a gray blanket and a warm, light red quilt on top of the blanket.
Anna walked over to her canopy bed, where Hans (with his bathrobe and slippers off) was sleeping on the right side. The canopy bed had a mahogany headboard, base, and foot board, a large white mattress, and eight matching pillows. Hot pink bedsheets covered the mattress, and eight matching pillowcases sheltered the pillows. The canopy bed was surrounded by four large fuschia curtains with golden draw tassels. A pink blanket covered up both Hans and the bedsheet-sheltered mattress. On top of the blanket, there was a warm, light fuschia quilt that was large and flowing.
"Now, we've got to make a plan to get that boy and his sisters to kiss you and your brothers." Eddie told Anna.
She removed her slippers, opened the curtains, and bounced a little before settling back into the large pillow on the left side of the canopy bed and crawled under the covers where Hans was sleeping.
"Tomorrow, when they take you for that ride, you gotta look your best." said Eddie.
Anna lay in her bed. It was very comfy and warm. It was a nice place for her and Hans to sleep for the night.
"You're gonna bat your eyes - like this," Eddie went on, as he batted his eyes and puckered his lips. "You gotta pucker up your lips - like this."
But by now, he realized that Anna, Hans, Hiro, and Tommy were already fast asleep. Eddie shook his head and smiled. "Hm." He removed his outfit and blew out the candle on the bed side table. He hopped onto Tommy's pillow, and before falling asleep himself, he said, "You and your brothers are hopeless, girl. You know that?" He yawned and closed his eyes as Tommy covered him up with a small creamy blanket. "Completely hopeless!"
And with that, Anna, Hans, Hiro, Tommy, and Eddie all fell asleep for the night.
Meanwhile, at the tavern in town, where it was all dark, except for a light at a table, Goliath and The Chameleon were having a talk with a lawyer. He was a slender, half bald man with black hair, a thin black mustache, black eyes, and thick black eyebrows. He wears a white dress shirt, a blue jacket, a red necktie, light blue pants with turquoise hairlines, and black and white spectator shoes. His name was Mr. Lickboot.
"I don't usually like to leave the asylum in the middle of the night," he said, pointing to Goliath. "But your friend said you'd make it worth my while." Then, a sack of gold was handed to him. "Ah!" Lickboot sneered, "I'm listening."
"It's like this: I've got my heart set on marrying Anna." said Goliath, "But the one problem is that she needs a little...persuasion, if you know what I mean."
The Chameleon snickered. "Yes! Turned him down flat." Goliath pushed him, sending his face falling into the beer mug.
"Everyone knows her grandparents are lunatics." Goliath said, while The Chameleon struggled to pull his face out of the mug. "They were in here two nights ago, raving about a Queen Elsa of Arendelle in a castle."
"Gepetto and Widow Tweed are both harmless." replied Lickboot.
"The point is," said Goliath. "Anna and her brothers will do anything to keep their grandparents from being locked up."
Finally, The Chameleon pulled his face out of the beer mug. "Yes, even marrying that human mountaineer and his sisters." he chuckled. He yelped, noticing Goliath's glare before hiding under the table. The giant pickle looked at the lawyer. "And that's pretty much where you come in." He stood up before he began to sing.
Goliath: When a guy like me is thwarted
And denied his honeymoon
The Chameleon: When the pretty thing he's courted
Refuses to swoon
Goliath: Then the time has come for a murky plan
The Chameleon: For which he turns to a murky man
Goliath and The Chameleon: To find that fiend where better than At the House of the Loons?
Goliath: You'll be strapping up an inmate
The Chameleon: Very tightly.
Goliath: Very soon And we won't bring them in late
The Chameleon: Your check-in time's noon
Lickboot: How sad that Gepetto and Tweed are not too well
Goliath: Prepare a five-star padded cell
Goliath, The Chameleon, and Lickboot: And book them in for a long, long spell At the House of the Loons
Goliath: Do I make myself entirely clear?
The Chameleon: It's the simplest deal of your whole foul career
Goliath: Put those pipsqueaks away and she'll be in here in moments
The Chameleon: In a dreadful state
Goliath: She'll capitulate to me
The lawyer became interested.
Lickboot: Oh! Oh! Oh, I love incarceration! I could lock up a platoon!
Goliath: We'll apply your inclination To a fiery buffoon
Goliath and Lickboot: Then wave one bachelor goodbye
Goliath: She'll be my bride
The Chameleon She'd rather die!
The two glared at him, which made The Chameleon nervous.
The Chameleon: Than have old daddy, gramps, and gran ossify
Lickboot: The time's opportune
He stopped for a minute.
"So you want me to throw her grandparents into the asylum unless she agrees to marry you?" said Lickboot, as The Chameleon nodded at him. "Oh, that is despicable." But he chuckled to himself, smiled darkly, and said, "I LOVE it!"
Goliath, The Chameleon, and Lickboot: Then book the church, raise glasses high To the House of the Loons!
The trio laughed cruelly and maniacally.
Back in Gepetto and Widow Tweed's home, they were placing some necessary items in some suitcases.
"If no one will help us, we'll go back there ourselves. I swear!" Gepetto said bravely.
"We'll find that castle, and we'll get our grandchildren and their friends out of there!" Then they closed the door, shutting it behind them. As soon as they were gone, the three foes came to the house. Goliath and The Chameleon entered, looking around. "Anna? Hans? Hiro? Tommy? Gepetto? Widow Tweed?" Goliath called.
The Chameleon shrugged his shoulders, snickered and shook his head. "Oh, well! Guess it's not gonna work after all!" He began heading out, only to be grabbed by the tail by Goliath as he hopped out.
"They'll have to come back someday," Goliath grinned. "And when they do, we'll be ready for them! Chameleon!" said the giant pickle, as he threw the lizard into the pile of snow next to the porch. "Don't move from that spot! Until Anna, her brothers, and their grandparents come home!" And with that, he hopped off noisily.
The Chameleon spoke up for him. But, it was too late as he was gone. "But-but I...Aw nuts!"
Angrily, The Chameleon hit the side of the porch, and more snow piled onto him.
