Belle, A Once Upon A Time Fanfiction

*-These characters belong solely to the creators of OUAT. I simply a humble fan.

*Takes place during Quiet Minds.



It was too much for Rumplestilskin. The voices, the memories were all jumbled up in his head. Except for one.

His Belle. The thought of her was his only hold on his sanity.

Belle, with the sweetest lips he had ever tasted.

Belle, with the bright blue eyes.

Belle, who shared their bed, night after night, not afraid of the beast inside of him.

Belle, the only person beside Bae who could call his bluff.

Belle, who continually reassured him that he was not a beast, but a man. He was her man.

Belle, who helped to heal the scars of his past. Belle, who helped him forget that Millah and his father abandoned him.

Belle, who helped him to forgive himself for putting magic before his son.

Belle, the woman he wanted to marry, the one he should have married a long time ago.

Belle, the woman he wanted to have children with, to have the opportunity to be the father he couldn’t be for Bae.

He would find a way to make Zelena pay for what she did to him. And when his task was completed, he would return to Belle and have the life that they were meant to have.

He loved them all. He would do anything to save them.

Rumplestilkin had to stop his father. To do that, he had to kill them both.

He watched them in suspended animation, his eyes drifting from one to another.

He loved his son, their brief reunion made up for all of the years that they had been separated.

He loved Belle; she was the only woman he had ever truly loved. If things would have been different, he would have married her a long time ago. Perhaps Rumplestilkin would have another shot at fatherhood, be the father he couldn’t be for Baelfire.

For them, he would make the ultimate sacrifice.

“Belle?” Rumple called out from the front hallway.

 “Upstairs” she called back.

Entering their bedroom, he found her sitting up in bed, reading.

“How was dinner?”.

“Good” After returning from Neverland, Rumplestilskin had a renewed energy and a desire to maintain a relationship with his son and grandson. That resulted in a monthly boy’s night out dinner with Neal and Henry. That dinner was scheduled for tonight.

“How was the library?”.

“Good” Once a week, Belle closed up at 8 instead of 6:30. Tonight was that night.

“Did you miss me?” Rumple uncrossed her legs as Belle put the book on the night stand.

“Of course I did” she wrapped her legs around his waist as he crawled on top of her and began to undo the top buttons of her shirt.

“What is that delicious smell?” he murmured, burying himself into her cleavage.

“The library”.

“Perhaps I should visit the library more often”.

“You can visit anytime you want”.

She captured his lips with her own and the rest of the world was forgotten.

The next morning, Rumple woke up a very happy man, wearing a smile. Belle slept beside him, wearing the same smile. Perhaps they should have more evenings together.



Bad Men-Warning Spoilers and Mature Content

*-These characters belong to Disney and the creators of Once Upon A Time.

*- The unfortunate man who was beat up by Mr. Gold was not given a name, for the sake of this fiction, his name is Eddie.

*Post Episode 2×19 “Lacey”. If you have not see this episode, read at your own risk – SPOILER ALERT

*-Rated M for mature content

Bad Men
Lacey watched Mr. Gold magically destroyed Eddie’s tongue before beating him to a bloody pulp.

This was not the gallant and proper gentleman who taken her to lunch the day before. He was powerful and emotional, a man who knew his place in Storybrooke. He was exactly what she needed.

“So it is true, you are as bad as they say”. Lacey stepped over the unconscious man, her eyes never leaving Mr. Gold’s.

This was not Belle. This woman was hungry for something else; she had a sauciness that Belle never had. Perhaps this new woman, this Lacey might not be so bad.

“I like bad men, Mr. Gold and you are the baddest of them all” She kissed him hungrily, wanting to taste the possibilities of this man.

By the time they reached Mr. Gold’s house, Lacey knew that she wanted this man.

“What did you have in mind?” Mr. Gold asked, knowing full well what they both wanted.

“You know what I want Mr. Gold” Lacey pulled down the pins that kept her hair in place and began to undo the top buttons of her blouse.

He returned her kiss as she pushed the jacket off him.

By the time they reached his bedroom and the bed he had once shared with Belle; her legs were wrapped around his waist. Both of their shirts had disappeared and her bra was a moment away from disappearing.

“Last chance to stop, dearie” Mr. Gold warned as they fell onto the bed.

“I don’t recall asking you to stop”.

As he thrust into her, he growled, “you are mine “.

“Did I say I going anywhere?” Lacey asked before kissing him again.

Belle was gone; in her place was a woman who matched his need for power.

Regina thought that replacing Belle with Lacey would destroy him; instead he had a partner who shared his vision for the future. Regina would still pay for what she did, but now, there was two to face instead of one.

Domestic Simplicity

Domestic Simplicity

Domestic simplicity was not a concept that Rumplestilskin was used to. But there were a lot of things he had to get used to and if domestic simplicity was one of them, he was happy to get used to it.

Six months after Belle had regained her memory and the Lacey incident was behind them, he and Belle had settled down into a simple life.

Belle returned to her job as the town Librarian and Rumple continued to run his pawn shop. After both had closed for the day and dinner was completed, they had the evening to themselves.

That night, Belle was going through the books she had received in the mail. After reopening the library, a monthly newsletter started going out to the residents of Storybrooke. Included in the newsletter was a list of new books that had been added to the library. That was the task that Belle had assigned herself tonight, to write up the newsletter and include the review the new books.

But her boyfriend had other ideas.

“What do you say, dearie, about going to bed a little early tonight?” his breath tickled her neck. The way he said dearie, was meant for her only.

“You know I love you, but if I don’t email the printers tonight, they won’t have enough time to print them” Belle forced her eyes to remain on the computer screen in front of her, not on her boyfriend who was eager for her to join him in their bedroom. If she looked at him, her resolve to finish her work would disappear.

“If I must wait, I will” Rumple sat down in the living room, patiently waiting for Belle to finish her work.

When she was finally finished with her work, Belle turned off the computer and snuggled against him on the chair, her head leaning into his shoulder.

“What did you have in mind?” she inquired teasingly starting to undo the buttons on his shirt.

“Why don’t I show you?” lifting her up, he carried her to their bedroom.

Domestic simplicity wasn’t a bad thing after all.

Rumplestilkin was not one for prayer, even before the curse of the dark one.

Not even when Bae disappeared did he pray for the safety of his only child.

But watching Belle sleep in the hospital bed, hooked up to the tubes, Rumple began to pray.

Belle was the most important person in his life, besides his son. She made him feel human again, forced him to face his past and his fears and still stayed with him.

“Mr. Gold, visiting hours are over in 15 minutes” the nurse walked in, checking on Belle’s vitals.

“Will she survive?” he asked.

“Dr. Whale believes she will. The bullet was removed without a problem”.

“Wherever you are in there, come back to me. I need you, I love you, and I can’t do this with you” Rumple whispered before kissing her forehead one last time before walking out of the room.

When he returned home, the house felt empty. Her light, her warmth was gone.

The truth was that Rumplestilkin did not know how to pray. But tonight, he would try.

“I don’t know if anyone is listening, but if they are, I need Belle. I have made many mistakes in my life, but I must have done something right to deserve her. Just bring her back to me”.

Tomorrow he would do as he had done for the past week, find a way to bring back her memory and visit the hospital. And he would pray that the Belle he knew and loved would return.
