the snow queen

Summary:

Kai and Gerda stood at the window watching the snow. All of a sudden, the wind threw open the windows and a splinter of the Evil Troll's broken mirror lodged in Kai's eye. Instantly he turned against his friend Gerda, choosing to follow the snow queen. In the spring, Gerda started the long journey to find and save Kai. Would her love of Kai be enough?
