Perfection is he condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects.
"We were born to be real, not to be perfect."
"Perfection is swallow, unreal and fatally uninteresting."
Ever since Zelena's sister and father died her mother Cora strove to create Zelena a perfect life. Whenever Zelena fussed about not wanting a perfect life, Cora would reply "My life wasn't perfect and now all I have is you..."
Zelena's happy with how her life has turned out so far...she was Merlin's heir, she was the top witch in the Wizarding World, she was the first cohort in the first order of Merlin...she really didn't want a perfect life...she wanted a happy life....


4. Perfect Plan

As soon as the wedding ended Mother handed me a book wrapped in paper. I knew this book, I used to find Mother working on it every day since I was three. Hades puts his arm around me and stares down at the package.

“What is it?”

“A plan for your lives…I’ve planned every second of Zelena’s life. For fourteen years this thing has been accurate and it’s caused me great pains to keep it on track. Hades you have the task to ensuring Zelena has the perfect life. I don’t want her to go through any pain.”

“Mother being perfect is painful.”

“Nonsense, perfection is happiness. Go on now open the book.”

“Have you really planned out my whole life?”

“Since you were three. It’s worked…every moment I planned worked out.”

“What are you going to do when your plan fails?”

“It won’t.”

I tear the silver paper off the book and find an emerald green leather bond book with a picture on the front. It was a picture of Regina and I sleeping together as baby’s in this huge cradle. We were hugging. Hades smiles as I stare at the photo.

“That was seventeen years ago. You two were so close. I had planned both of your lives…I was going to be lenient and not make everything so perfect but when she died I snapped and decided it would be perfect. I would give you the best. Because, I didn’t make it perfect I would lose you too.”

“Momma, you aren’t going to lose me. Perfect or not.”
“Too late…your life will be perfect. That way you won’t get hurt.”

I stop staring at the picture of my twin and I in the cradle…I open the book to the first page and find pictures…more pictures of the first three years of my life. In every single one of them it was me and Regina…then in some of them all four of us. I use my veil to wipe away the tears.

“Mother what is this?”

“I started off the book with photos of you and your sister. It gave me inspiration on how to plan out your life.”

“When am I supposed to die? Did you plan that out?”

“After I’m dead you’re free.”

“Zelena, read me some of your mother’s plans for your perfect life…”

“Well let’s start from my third birthday shall we…when I was five I mastered magic like she planned. When I was seven I became the first cohort in the first order of Merlin…like she planned. When I was eleven I became a Slytherin and in my first year became a prefect like she planned. I took all advanced classes like she planned. I met the man I would marry in fifth year like she planned. I got engaged when I was sixteen and graduated like she planned. I got married at seventeen like she planned. I’m going to have my first child at 21, have my second at 24 and my third at 27…when I turn 30 Merlin will make me the head wizard…Mother has planned out my life and so far it’s been perfect.”

“Cora…if I do say so myself…you’ve gotten this whole perfect life for my wife under control.”

“I do want Zelena to have the best…hopefully nothing will happen to ruin these plans. She’s been perfect for so long…I don’t think she’ll survive without perfection.
