Magic Always Comes with a Price. Always. (OUAT) (S2)

With the curse broken, life as Hazelle knows it, is about to change. After going to a new land, meeting interesting people, coming home, and trying to keep normal people from coming into Storybrooke, Hazelle is about to see what being a hero is all about. Can she handle it? Is she strong enough? Will she fall in love? Read and find out. I only own my OCs.


2. We Are Both

I knew that when I stepped into Storybrooke that I was in for the time of my life. I was only here because I found out that Hazelle was here. I’ve been watching over her for quite a while. I know her better than she knows herself, but I’m only here to watch over here. I’m not letting anyone know that I’m here because that will ruin everything.

I followed David, who I now know is Charming, to Regina’s, the Evil Queen I presume, house. I’m watching through a window, but I can still here every word. David is asking Regina about a hat. I knew that the hat belonged to Jefferson, or the Mad Hatter I should say. I was pulled back to the house when David and Regina started making their voices louder.

“Where did you get it?” David asked shaking the hat.

“I’ve long since forgotten. You know what? Maybe, you should be less concerned with hats, and more concerned with taking care of my son and daughter.” Regina replied.

I knew that she was referring to Henry and Danielle, even though Danielle isn’t really her daughter. I also thought it was funny because she basically stole Emma and Hazelle from their parents, but she’s not showing any remorse.

“Oh, because you took such great care of him.” David bit back.

 Wow. I’m liking him already. I’m glad that I’m following David because I’m getting entertainment, but I do wish that I knew where Hazelle was.

“I will not listen to child care lectures from a man who put his daughters in a box and shipped them to Maine.” Regina shot back.

“Okay, listen. I need my family. There’s magic here now. There will have to be ways to follow them.” David said.

Huh? I’m totally confused now. Where in the hell did Hazelle go?

“Follow them where? Into a sucking airless void? And good luck getting magic to work. Because, as you said, you’d be charcoal.” Regina questioned.

Uh oh, this can’t be good. What in the hell happened here? Where are Hazelle and the others? I hope that they are ok, or everything is going to be ruined.

“Oh, frustrated, are we? Serves you right. You’ve earned every bit of this.” David shot at her.

Why is it that I agree with him? Maybe it’s because I know the truth. About everything. Everything will be clear soon. I hope.

“Keep on baiting me, Charming. Right now, I don’t have magic and I don’t have my son. But, when I get one, I get the other. And you don’t want to be around when that happens.” Regina told David.

I knew right then that something was about to go down, and it won’t be pretty.

“If you have to use magic to keep your son, you don’t really have him.” David told Regina before leaving her house.

I totally agree with him there. I just hope that whatever has happened gets fixed real soon, or things will have to change. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see. I followed David to what I guess is the crisis center, and enjoyed watching him interact with everyone. I felt bad for the guy because everyone wanted his help, but he was trying to figure everything out, just like they were. I decided to go check out the damage. I couldn’t believe that all of this happened because of some wraith, but then again, Mr. Gold did this. I saw that David was going into Mr. Gold’s shop, so I decided to go and listen in. I know I’m nosey, but I’m also watching out for David, and trying to figure out where the hell Hazelle is.

“It appears when I bought that closed sign, I was just throwing my money away.” Mr. Gold told David as he was doing something.

I may not know what he is doing, but I know that it can’t be good.

“Looks like it.” David said back.

“Sorry to hear about your wife and daughters. If you’re looking for a retrieval, I’m afraid portal jumping is just outside my purview.” Mr. Gold told David.

I knew that he was telling the truth because the only way to portal jump is to have a magic bean.

“Of course it is.” David sighed.

I knew he wasn’t happy about that, but I think David knows that Mr. Gold knows something that can help him.

“So, what’s the commotion outside?” Mr. Gold asked.

“Oh, a little stir at the border. Problem crossing the line.” David replied.

“Do tell.” Mr. Gold said curiously.

“Actually, I’m here to buy something. A way to find someone.” David said while changing the subject.

“Well, like a map?” Mr. Gold asked confused.

“Something with a bit more kick. Like the ring you gave me to find Snow.” David replied.

“Ah, yeah, magic. Whom are you following?” Gold asked.

I know that he is nosy, but not this freaking nosy. I know he’s trying something, and I wish I could be in there to see what it is.

“Not telling.” David replied in a sing-song voice.

“So, do you have something of theirs, this missing person?” Gold asked.

“Yes.” David replied.

“May I see it?” Gold asked.

“No.” David replied.

I laughed quietly because that was funny. What did Gold think? Did he really think that David would tell him anything?

“Pour this on the subject, and then follow it. So simple, even David Nolan could do it.” Gold told David.

I wish I could see what’s going on, but I know that I could be seen and that can’t happen.

“What do you want?” David asked, and that told me that Gold wasn’t given David what he wanted just yet.

“Peace. Leave me alone.” Gold told him.

I was confused, but I guess they will help me understand in a second.

“What do you care what David Nolan does?” David asked confused.

Thank you! At least I’m not the only one confused.

“Oh, no. It’s Charming I worry about. I’d like a little non-interference guarantee.” Gold replied.

Oh! I get it now. Gold’s scared that Charming will stop his plan for doing whatever he wants to do. I’m starting to like David more and more each second.

“Fine. If, you give me the same. You and I – we stay out of each other’s way.” David said back.

“Thank you for your business.” Gold said.

I hope that this conversation is over because I’m starting to get bored. Maybe not since Gold just stopped David from leaving.

“So, uh, what happens when you try and cross the border?” Gold asked.

“You lose your memory of everything of our old lives. Looks like we’re stuck here.” David replied before finally leaving the shop.

I’m glad that he’s finally leaving, but I’m still confused on what’s going on in this town. I hope that Hazelle is ok, but who knows now. I’m starting to think that this plan isn’t worth it anymore, but that’s not my call, so I guess I’m suck here till Hazelle and the others get back.

*Danielle’s POV*

I was in the town hall with everyone, and watching Henry as he tried to reach David. I’m so confused at the moment because where is Hazelle, Mary-Margaret, and Emma. Shouldn’t they be here? All of a sudden, Regina came waltzing in like she owned the place.

“My, what a turnout. No need for a fuss. It’s just little old me.” Regina told everyone as she stood at the front.

I’m total confused right now. What the hell is wrong with Regina? What the hell is going on?

“Regina. Think about what you’re doing.” Archie told Regina.

“Bug.” was all Regina said before magically throwing Archie across the room.

I was complete shock. Why would she do that when all he was doing was trying to help her? I just stood there and watched as Regina scared everyone, until Ruby spoke up.

“What do you want?” Ruby asked.

“Me. She wants me. Okay, I’ll come with you. Just leave them alone.” Henry replied.

“That’s my boy, but I don’t want just you. Danielle, would you be a dear and come with us.” Regina said as she looked at me.

I was just as confused as everyone else was, but I’m like Henry, so I went with them, and maybe I’ll get the answers I want. When we got to Regina’s house, Henry and I went straight to his room. Henry went out the window, and before I could follow him, branches wrapped around him, and then Regina stepped into the room.

“Don’t fight it, honey. You’ll get a splinter.” Regina told Henry as the branches put Henry back in his room.

Henry, Regina, and I sat on his bed, and I knew right now that something is about to go down between them.

“How long are we in prison? Till we grow up?” Henry asked.

“Henry, I rescued you and Danielle because I love you both.” Regina replied.

“So, we’re prisoners because you love us. That’s not fair.” Henry said.

I’m just sitting here because I’m so confused.

“You know where I come from. That was really not fair. Of all the places I’ve seen, this is the fairest of them all.” Regina said.

“You ruined lives. You sent away Mary-Margaret, Emma, and Hazelle.” Henry bit back.

Everything is starting to make sense now. I just wish I knew what happened.

“That was an accident.” Regina tried to explain.

“The way you treated me wasn’t an accident. You made it so no one believed me. You made me feel like I was crazy.” Henry said.

I didn’t have anything to say because I didn’t know what to say or think at this moment.

“But that’s all going to change, now. Henry, you and Danielle can know all the secrets. You guys can live in a house with magic. Look what I could do.” Regina told us before conjuring a giant cupcake.

I was in awe but I knew that this wasn’t right. I was just going to sit here and let them talk about whatever, and I’ll take notes.

“And I can teach both of you. Both of you can do this and so much more. Both of you can have all the friends you want come over any time, and you can show them everything in your book.” Regina told us.

“No one’s going to want to come over here. They’re scared of you.” Henry told her.

“I’m sorry Regina but I prefer to be my own person. I’m not one to be controlled.” I finally spoke.

Regina just ignored my comment, but I could tell that what Henry and I said hurt her.

“You can make them not be scared. You can make them love you.” Regina said.

“I don’t want that. I don’t want to be you.” Henry shouted before leaving the room.

I felt awkward just sitting there, so I got up and went to the bathroom. I hope that everything gets worked out or everything I’ve worked for is going to go down the drain. I’ve come too far to let anything or anyone stop me.

*End of Danielle’s POV*

I walked through the woods just because I was trying to get a good feel about the town. I ended up close to the town line, and I heard commotion. I decided to check it out, because I was curious.

“Get out of the way! We have the right to go!” Archie yelled.

I’m still getting used to everyone’s name, but maybe I’ll learn them since I’m here till Hazelle gets back.

“Listen to me! Listen!” David hollered.

The crowd got quiet and I must say that I’m very proud of the prince. See, I’m picking up on who everyone is.

“If you cross that line, you’re going to be lost. Everyone who loves you will lose you. But there’s something worse – you’ll lose yourself. Look, I get wanting to leave here, I do. And I get that it’s easier to let go of the bad memories, but… even bad memories are part of us. David, Storybrooke David, was – is – weak, confused. And he hurt the woman I love. I wouldn’t give up being Charming just to be him, but, you know what? I wouldn’t make the other trade, either. Because that David reminds me, not only of who I lost, but of who I want to be. My weaknesses, and my strengths. David, and the Prince. I am both – just like you. You are both. The town is both. We are both. Stay here, and every choice is open to you.  Live in the woods if you want. Hell, live in a shoe if you want. Or eat frozen burritos and write software. Let’s open Granny’s and the school. And get back to work. I will protect you. She won’t be able to hurt any of us. Not as long as I’m alive. Not as long as we all come together. As we did before. As we shall do again.” David told the crowd.

It took a little bit, but before long, the crowd started to get back in their cars and head back into town. I was very proud of him for saying that. I actually believe him. I’m glad that Hazelle has him for a dad, and I hope he gets her back along with her mother and sister. I followed after David as he went to Regina’s house, equipped with his sword. I’m still confused on that, but I guess I’ll see what happens.

“I want to see them.” David growled.

I was trying so hard not to laugh because David had his sword pointed at Regina. I was hoping for a fight, but I knew that it wouldn’t happen.

“Henry, Danielle, come down! You won’t be using your sword.” Regina hollered upstairs, before looking at David.

“Whatever you conjure, I can fight.” David told her.

“I mean, you won’t need your sword.” Regina said before pushing the blade away.

I was in utter shock, but I think that she’s going to do right by her kids. When Henry and Danielle came down the stairs, I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. I couldn’t believe with what I was seeing. This girl is a total fake. At least, I think she is. I hope she doesn’t ruin what’s going to happen, or I’ll have to take her out.

“Henry, Danielle, you’re going to go home with David.” Regina told them.

“Really?” Henry and Danielle asked excitedly.

“Really. I shouldn’t have brought both of you here. I was… I don’t know how to love very well. I wasn’t capable of it for a long time, but I know I remember… if you hold onto someone too hard, that doesn’t make them love you. I’m sorry I lied to you both. And that I made you both feel like I don’t know who you are. But I want both of you here, because you want to be here. Not because I forced either of you, and not because of magic. I want to redeem myself. Go get your things.” Regina replied before sending them upstairs.

“Then prove it.” David said.

“How?” Regina questioned.

“Answer one question – does it exist?” David asked.

“What?” Regina questioned.

“The Enchanted Forest – our land. Does it still exist?” David rephrased.

“Yes. But I have no idea how to get back there. I can see I just launched you on a heroic quest. Just also make sure you take care of my son and daughter.” Regina reminded him.

“That, I can do.” David told her before Henry and Danielle returned.

Henry and Danielle follow David out of the house and I followed them to Granny’s. I was proud of the way that David was holding up. Maybe be here won’t be so bad, but I can’t get attached. I know that they are watching, and I know that I’m dead if I don’t stay hidden. Guess it’s time to see how long it takes for everything to come back around.

*Fairy Tale World*

I whimpered as my arms were starting to bother me from being dragged behind a horse. I’m just glad that I’m alone, but I wished that Emma and Mary-Margaret were able to break free, so we could figure out how to get home.

“What is this place?” Mary-Margaret asked as we came up to some type of camp.

“Our home.” Mulan replied.

We finally got these people’s names. There was Mulan, who I knew from the stories, and then there was the princess, Aurora. I had to think long and hard about her because she looks different than the stories.

“It’s like they’re refuges.” Emma said.

I nodded my head in agreement.

“We’re survivors.” Mulan told us.

I wanted to kick her ass so bad, but I knew that I couldn’t. I was trying to think of a way out, but Mary-Margaret beat me to it.

“Emma, Alycia, run!” Mary-Margaret yelled after she kneed Aurora in the stomach and started to run.

Emma and I follow her, but stop in our tracks as Mary-Margaret is hit in the back of the head by Mulan.

“Mary-Margaret! Mary-Margaret! What did you do?!” Emma and I yelled as we were grabbed.

“Take them to the pit.” Mulan told the people that had us.

We were thrown in what looked like a dungeon. I wasn’t too pleased with that, but I knew that we didn’t stand a chance against them.

“Be careful! Come on… wake up. Can you hear?” Emma questioned as she held Mary-Margaret.

I didn’t know what to do or say, so I just knelt next to Emma. We both looked up when a voice started to speak.

“Do you need help?” the voice asked.

“Who are you?” Emma asked back.

“A friend.” the voice replied.

Both of us watched as the voice emerged from the shadows. I was shocked that it was a woman, but she was beautiful.

“My name’s Cora.” the woman told us.

I’ve heard that name before. Where have I heard it? Maybe if she keeps talking, then I’ll remember.
