4. The idea

"You had a life Belle, before you came here with me, family, friend's a fiancée... Why did you choose to come here with me?" He said curiously.

"Well." Belle stated as she closed the door of the cabinet and walked towards the table "There aren't a lot of opportunities for women in our village to stand up and show what they can do to be heroes." She said in a strong voice as she placed the vase with the red rose upon the table.

Rumpelstiltskin looked at the rose and then back at Belle "So this was the first courageous thing you had done?" He asked, "Well I always wanted to be brave, I figured do the brave thing and bravery would follow, but yes this is the first courageous thing I have done, when I saw you there I wanted to be courageous, I wanted to be something." She replied.

Rumpelstiltskin could understand that feeling more than anyone, he always felt that way that was one of the many reason's he had decided to become the dark one. "And what about your betrothed?" he asked in a sly tone trying not to sound shy or jealous about Gaston.

"Gaston?" Belle grunted quietly and shook her head "It was an arranged marriage, honestly I never really cared for Gaston." She leaned over a little bit towards Rumpelstiltskin and looked at him "No, to me love is...love is layered love is a mystery to be uncovered, I could never be with someone as superficial as he." She said proudly.

Rumpelstiltskin was pleased that she felt that way, and that she wasn't in love with Gaston she spoke so passionately about love he loved that about her, he loved her passion it intrigued him, he then thought to himself and wanted to test belle to see where her heart truly lied.

Belle looked at Rumpelstiltskin "So tell me about your son." She said as if it were the topic of the day, Rumpelstiltskin stared at her intensely and then leaned over further to her with a smile upon his face. "I'll tell you what, go to town and get me some straw when you come back I will tell you my story." He said with a lurch in his stomach he feared that Belle wouldn't return but he had to risk it, he had to see if what was between them was true and real and not just some fantasy.

Belle gasped slightly and couldn't stop staring at him, "T-Town." She said in a stutter "you, you trust me enough to come back?" She said surprisingly she couldn't believe what he had just proposed she couldn't even imagine leaving him they had been together here for so long and she had grown very, very fond of him she didn't want to leave deep within her heart.

"Oh Belle, I trust I will never see you again." He said simply with a sad kind of smile, with that he left the room and disappeared into this chamber of the castle Belle was left standing there she was still in a bit of a shock she didn't know what had just happened but she went and grabbed her coat and basket to go and fetch some straw for him.

She walked down a lonely path contemplating whether she should return to him, or whether he really wanted her to at all. Just then a black carriage went past her as it flicked up some water Belle stepped back onto the grass and just looked at it, she was still in a daze and hadn't really realized a woman getting out of the carriage until she was right upon Belle.

"I'm so sorry, did my carriage splash you." Said Regina, the woman dressed in black. Belle smiled politely and shook her head "No, it's perfectly alright." She replied. Regina smiled at her "you know, I'm sick of sitting why don't I walk with you for a spell." She said with a smirk upon her face.

Belle accepted and walked along the track with Regina "You carry very little." Regina said unexpectedly to Belle, Belle looked at Regina "I don't want to be slowed down." She replied in a sad tone. "Oh, you're running from someone, the question is master or lover?" She said more to herself then to Belle. She looked at Belle and saw that hopeless look of love upon her face.

"Oh, master and lover." Replied Regina, she did a giggle that Belle thought sounded a little bit evil Belle stopped walking and turned to face Regina with a polite look upon her face "you go ahead I think I'm going to sit down for a second." Regina disregarded this and continued to push Belle forwards "So you're trying to figure out whether to stay or wether to leave him." Belle sighed "I could love him it's just that...Something evil has taken root in him." She said sadly.

"Sounds like a curse to me, and any curse can be broken." She replied and looked at Belle, Belle looked confused at her "A kiss born of true love will do it." She said in an sickly sweet tone, Belle looked at her surprisingly "Oh child please, as if I would suggest for you to kiss a man who held you captive besides if he loved you he would have let you go, and if he didn't love you, well the kiss wouldn't even work." Said Regina in an evil tone.

Belle stopped walking once more and faced Regina "But he did let me go!" said Belle happily, Regina stared at her "Yes, but no kiss happened." Replied Regina. "So a kiss, that's all it takes?" Asked Belle "True love's kiss can break any curse." Regina replied with a big grin on her face, Belle grinned happily back and thanked Regina and set off back to the castle to find Rumpelstiltskin.
