the return of the thin white duke

jack frosted treeso we all thought jack frost had retreated for this season, had abandoned ship, gone hiding. but just as you can never know if he’s at the north or south pole, you can never trust him really gone hiding either. so he sent his icy messenger, the return of the thin white duke, to underline who is in command still. he knows his mastery to perfection, and so does the thin white duke.
