"So....This is how you Treat your Pregnant Wife.....",Frollo felt his chest tighten as he stumbled back and as he muttered "pre....pregnant?" She placed her hand on the wall to attempting to get up, He watched her and he shot up to try and help her but she snapped at him "DON'T...come anywhere.....near me" she soon balanced herself to stand and she faced him, "So aren't you going to question me with a thousand questions?" He looked at her and tried finding the words but couldn't, she tilted her head and folded her arms "Not going to ask me who the father is? not going to say its this guy or the others, well here is the truth MY DEAR HUSBAND!!!...The baby is your's" he felt like an ice bucket had just been thrown on him, as she walked out slamming the door.

It had been some time since he'd forced Belle away because of her association with the Queen. He'd forced her from his home, but for some reason her could not force her from his heart. Rumplestiltskin would find himself thinking about her and their time together. Every time he looked in the cabinet, Belle's cup would resinate her presence in his heart, which sent him to find solace in his spinning.
One day he found that he could not stand wondering if she was okay. He had to see, just once, that she was okay. Then maybe, just maybe, he could truly let her go. Belle would have returned home to her father and her friends. There'd be no Gaston, of that he was certain. He glanced at the unwithered rose he had transformed to give to Belle as he sped through the main room. He headed to the front door, doors opening and closing for his passing.
As soon as he stepped out the doors, he disappeared from sight. He reappeared outside of that little town that Belle willingly sacrificed her life for

Rumple immediately took her to her bedroom, which had been left untouched. He laid her down gently on the bed and waited for her to awaken. His clothes were stained with blood. Some of it was his, some was hers, and the rest belonged to those sadist bastards! He knew Belle wouldn't like that he took life to save her, but that was just the truth of the matter. He was just glad she wouldn't have those horrid images of his monstrous actions or monstrous him, in her mind.
A few hours passed, and the whole time Rumple sat there watching her. He sat forward with his elbows on his knees, and his palms framing his face. The whole time his mind was racing with worry and uncertainty. What would she say? What would he say to her? Would she forgive him for the despicable way he treated her? All he really wanted was for her to wake up, know she was safe, and would remain safe forever! Even if she hated him, though it would probably destroy him, he would protect her with his life.
Finally he stood,

Rumple released a frustrated sigh and turned away from her. Belle now saw the wound he earned in freeing her. She had not realized the extent of his injury while he was covered with the mixture bloods. It was unprecedented that he would be so careless. He was not a man of battle but a man of wit; even so Belle was sure he knew how to evade such attacks. Had Rumple truly been that much away from himself for her sake? Normally her forgiveness wouldn't have come so easily, and it would require more effort from him in his asking for it. Rumple tormented himself over his actions, as he should, yet lost himself when it came to her safety. It could have been a lot worse than a lashing, for those men would not have hesitated to kill him. She could not fault him for wanting to save her or protecting himself. He had said he gave them chance to flee. She looked at his bare back, wanting nothing but to walk up and lace her arms around him. However, were she to try, he would shoo her back to bed. "

"Yes, with some time," Belle answered lowly. In all honesty she couldn't stay mad at him for too long; she never really could because her anger usually turned to sadness or forgiveness. She decided to remain silent for a bit to let him stew and then tell him how she felt. Belle moved to turn and face him, coming to rest on her shins. Rumple looked as though someone tore out his heart and seeing him broken tossed her resolve into the pit. "Yes, I forgive you." She sighed in defeat. Her words were met with disbelief and skepticism. Belle took his hands up in hers and looked him square in the eye. "I see the good in you - even if you do not." Rumplestiltskin couldn't think of anything to say. He was simply dumbfounded. Rumple returned her gaze with a searching one of his own. Belle gently rubbed her thumb over his hands and could feel the blush rise in her cheeks due to his held attention to her. "Belle you are far too kind to this monstrous fool." He said gently withdrawing his hands fro

Rumplestiltskin had stopped outside her chamber's closed doors and gave a long exhale. Then with a snap of his fingers, his silk shirt of a rich clay and crocodile skin waistcoat of a murky brown clothed him.
"My, my, seems I have interrupted you again." Jefferson said strolling up and stopping beside Rumplestiltskin.
"Yes. It seems your timing has a less than favorable pattern." Rumple said tugging on his cuffs. He turned and started to his laboratory with Jefferson behind him. Rumple wasn't much for small talk. In fact, he found no use for it and cared for it even less. They arrived shortly, and Rumple stopped just behind his work table.
"I, uh, never expected you to preoccupy your time with a wench." Jefferson said sauntering up the final flight of stairs. Rumple slammed his hands down on the table, making Jefferson jump. "Hold your tongue lest you lose it!" He growled viciously. "My lady is no wench. Do you think me uncapable of having a woman of morals?"
"I meant no offense! Given

Belle blinked in surprise. "You didn't have to." Rumple said gently and shyly.
Belle walked up slowly with her hands in front of her. "You're welcome. I felt comfortable - making tea. It makes me feel at home and like nothing's changed."
"Belle," he sighed and caressed her cheek. "You are no servant."
"I know but I wanted to do this for you." Belle said taking hold of his hand and smiling gently.
Rumple gave a small smile. "My dear you are heaven-sent and infinitely more than I deserve." He collected a lock of her hair, hanging limply, and held it to his lips.
Belle gave a small, short laugh and caressed the side of his brow down to his cheek. "Yet I returned then, and I'm here now. I could have taken your kindness and left." Belle said causing Rumple to stare at her. "Above all others - above everything, I choose you, Rumplestiltskin." She said lacing her arms around his neck. Rumple tensed with surprise and nervousness. In response to his reaction, Belle pressed her body against his

Rumple gently gathered Belle up into his arms so as to put her in bed properly. A small moan of misery escaped Belle lips as he lifted her. Rumple snapped his fingers and the bed lay ready to receive her. He slipped her into bed and brought the covers up to her chin. Finally he wetted the cloth, wrung it out, and placed it upon her forehead.
Belle settled a little more once the cloth was cooling her. For a little while he sat watching her sleep, beside her on the bed. Rumple would wipe perspiration from her and continuously renewed the cool, damp cloth upon her brow. As Belle's slumber became calmer, Rumple summoned his spinning wheel into the open floor of the large chamber. He sat facing her bed to continue keeping her under his watchful eye.
Rumple sat spinning his gold and thinking. He remembered taking care of his beloved Baelfire. The only time he'd leave his son's side was to fetch new water and make some broth. He always took care of Bae, the best way he knew

Once again Rumple returned to his work. His goal ever the same - a land without magic. He had been working on a curse of specific design. However, he'd not be the one enacting it. Belle wouldn't like it. Then he froze with realization. From what he worked out thus far, Belle would forget him, but he would remember. Those with magic would remember. Rumple felt uneasy in both his stomach and chest. The thought of loosing her again was - well, unbearable.
His love for Belle, he embraced his feelings fully now. However, he was still unsure and uncomfortable when it came to showing them. Regardless he had work to do, and now he discovered another task. Curses, potions, and plots - there always seems like there's so little time. Breaks were things he rarely took. However now that Belle was home, he felt himself eager at the prospect.
Belle's eyes fluttered open to be greeted by the pit black of night. She sat up slowly, and she felt the cool of the room, due to the freeze outside the window.

When Regina walked through the castle and into the common room, Rumplestiltskin was standing beside his spinning wheel, spinning slowly. "I have a deal to discuss, a certain mermaid." She said making herself tea.
"I'm not dealing today." Rumple stated, clearly not interested on being disturbed.
"You seem upset - does it have to do with the girl I met on the road? What was her name? Margie? Berna?"
"Yes. I heard you had cast her out that very night. Also that she returned home only to be tortured by her father's command." Regina laughed and then took a sip of her tea. Rumple rounded on her, still displeased and disinterested. "It's rumored you stormed her father's castle, demanded to know where the girl was only to slay two clerics, and make off with the girl." She said trying to coax an agreement to his actions. "What did you think? You might try being the hero - just once. See if it suit you?" She laughed heartily. "Poor child to be stuck with you, tortured at home, and then
