Daae Prodigy: The Beginning

Linda Daae[a.k.a. Belle] was a regular 14 year living in Dorburgh, PA. Or is she? Belle didn't have anything close to a close childhood living in her mansion full of wizards, benders, and the overall odd people. She must face her whole family to have a normal life. Will she succeed at her goal or fail driving her to the worst possible nightmare a teenage wizard could have?


10. You're What

I hoped the link for the song would work but I saw that it didn't. So if you haven't figured out already that you just copy the link and paste it in your searchbar. This is why I need comments! If the link doesn't continue to work [but it should] please tell me in the comments and I'll put the song in the story. Thanks!




I screamed my head off. They jumped up and showed some things I wish I would never, ever see in my life. It haunts me to this day. Michael went to grab me but I got out of the way. He tried again and I poofed up a spell and he was on the floor asleep. Christine stood there and watched me. For a second I thought she was crying. She recognized what she did and what the penalty would soon be.

"Well? What you gonna do about it?"

"I-I don't know. He just forced me to do it."

This was the first time I felt a little bad for my cousin. She had no idea what he was going to do to her. Although she should have figured it out on her own what he was planning to do. Michael was going to make Christine pregnant so he would have to marry her and not me. He thought I was nothing but a spoiled brat. I'll show him someday!

"Well? Do you understand what you have to do?"

"No- no! I'm so scared!"

"How do you think I feel? You just screwed me over when you screwed him! You have to get some morning- after pills from the pill closet. Why your mother keeps those, I have no idea."

Poor Christine looked like she was about to throw up. Michael was starting to stir so I had to get this mushy-gushy conversation over. I led her over to bed making sure she kicked Michael. Payback baby! Even though she was entirely naked she hugged me long and hard. I still have nightmares with her naked in them. They are scary!

"P-please help me! I had no idea what he was going to do. At first he was cussing you out and I was still under the alcohol he gave me in the garden. See? Smell."

"Oh gross! How many bottles did you have?"

"I don't know but it felt like a lot!" She laughed a little but stopped when she remembered what he did after those couple bottles.

"So, uh, what was he saying about me?" I wanted to know more.

"I won't tell you. It'll hurt your feelings. Anyways when I figured out what he was doing I tried to throw him off of me. He yelled at me calling me the same thing he called you. I kept struggling with him and I don't know what happened after that. Everything went black."

I started to search the bed and found nothing. I pulled back her hair and found a bruise the shape of a hand. Yep. Everything did go black when he hit her. Now I was even madder! Even though I hate her sometimes, I still loved my cousin like a sister. I turned to my cousin to continue to talk but felt a song come on.


She stopped crying and finally put her clothes on. I told her to go find her mother to tell her that she was fine and I would clean the room for bed. When she finally left I turned to a waking Michael. He didn't know I was in the room and he went to put on his clothes. I stayed in the corner listening to the horrible things he was saying about Christine and I.

"Wow! What a night with two beautiful bitches. That alcohol was good. Maybe I should do this tomorrow. Wait. Christine? That bitch! I'll kill that broad and her even bitchier cousin!"

Great. I love being called a bitch!

"Well. Well. Well. Michael, did you have a nice night?

"What?! You are a crazy selfish bitch! Get off of me!"

I jumped off and he ran out. I tried to catch up but I couldn't. Fuming mad I went back to my room and fell asleep right there in the outfit from cell block tango. As I was lying there I remembered about the morning after pills. Even though I was pooped I went to the pill cabinet and pulled out the bottle. I grabbed a glass of water and went back to my room. Putting the bottle and water down I decided to write a note so Christine would know what to do.

Dear Christine,

These are the pills I told you about. Take two and swallow them do the same in the morning. This should prevent it! By the way, good job fighting back! You left the biggest bruise on his chest! Please take these pills!

Love, Belle <3

The next morning I found the pills still lying there. I still found two pills missing from the bottle so I prayed she took them that morning and just left the room. I prayed but I wasn't answered.

One Month Later


I was walking around the mansion as usual with a book in my hand. The Westing Game which I totally recommend. Its a great murder mystery! Anyways my day was pretty normal. I woke up, got breakfast, and was beaten by my mother. Ever since that night my mother beats me like how the Night Treaders did. The scars I had on my back grew everyday unless I was able to avoid her all day. The maids kept asking why I had blood on all of my clothes so I had to pretend I didn't hear them every single night. It was embarrassing.

As I was walking I ran into my aunt. She looked rather scared so I asked her what was going on. The answer scared me too.

" Hey Aunt Christine! What's happening? You look scared."

"Yes I am very nervous," she didn't look me in the eye, "The Judges are here! They're early!"

The Judges were the people who confirmed who was the Daae Prodigy. They don't come until every competitor is over the age of 21. I knew something was terribly wrong and that thing had to be my cousin. I never paid that much attention to her that much since she ruined my chances of being the Prodigy without question.

"Aunt Christine? I have to ask, do you know where Christine is?"

"Oh, yes she is in your room getting ready for the meeting. You should too."

My aunt was turning into my mother each day. NAG NAG NAG! Ignoring my aunt I walked very quickly to my room to find Christine on my bed crying. She was holding something in her hand. It was long and looked pinkish white. No it couldn't be! I threw down my book and kneeled down next to her to see what I dreaded it would be! A pregnancy test! I grabbed it our of her hand and it had a little green plus sign.  

"You're what?!"

She didn't lift her head. She just kept on crying. I literally had to pull her up and make her face me to talk. Although I wasn't ready to talk like her.

"Did you take those pills like I told you?" She didn't speak, "Did you take those pills like I told you!"

"N-no. Y-yes. M-maybe. I don't know. I can't remember stuff from last month! Look don't worry about me, worry about yourself. You're the Daae Prodigy. That's why the Judges are here today. When I found out I was pregnant, so did they. Please just go to the library and accept the reward for me."

"But, but you could still have a chance." That was a lie. When I would be crowned she would have no possibility of getting back in the competition whatsoever.

"I know you're lying. Just go! Take the dress on my bed. It's my mother's for when she was crowned Prodigy. She thinks I'm the winner. Boy, is she stupid!"

We both shared a quick laugh as I put on the dress. It was a little big but other than that it fit nicely. Before I left I turned to Christine and waved goodbye as she started to cry once more. I felt bitter/sweet accepting the Prodigy Crown. I always wanted to be Prodigy and worked so hard for it. Although, my cousin should be the one getting the crown because she too worked hard [kinda].

 I continued down the hall toward the library. Finally I reached the big oak doors.

Here goes nothing!
