"I wasn’t going to stop you," he assured her. "I just— never mind." Saying that he didn’t understand her logic wouldn’t do either of them any good, and he didn’t want to upset her.
Belle squeezed his arm, continuing their walk to his large house. She thought he looked adorable whenever he looked confused, and she just felt the need to touch him more than ever in those moments.
They continued home, and once they were inside, Belle was happier than ever. She prepared lunch for them and started on dinner, and when her chores were done, she went out to get the wood she needed for the weaving, putting it on a porch so it wouldn’t get wet if it were to rain.
The next day, she prepared herself to go to the cinema after dinner, looking more gorgeous than ever as she walked down the stairs, wearing a lovely red dress and high heels - something she didn’t wear often as she worked for mister Gold.
Gold raised his head, starring at her. ”I see. You expect to find who your parents are. If you were found near here, then there is a chance that they are still around. For an unknown reason people seems to be —— uncapable to leave this town.” He paused, a little smirk playing on the corner of his lips. ” As I mentioned, it’s a very little town, it might take more than two days to find them however.”
His hands finally touched the papers he was looking for and he handed them to her. ”I wish you a safe trip, Belle.”
"Thanks," she said softly, thinking over his words, and not stepping out of the shop yet. "What do you mean that people are unable to leave this town?"
He had spiked her curiosity. Now she could not imagine what it was that he meant precisely. It was an odd thing to say.

I really enjoyed this RP. It was so different to see King George as Rumple’s backstabbing adoptive father, I was very sad when he made Rumple forget about Belle. I also really liked the addition of Belle’s mom at the beginning.
Thanks eneath! Really glad to see you enjoyed the RP. ^^
Rush agreed to this yoga business he did not agree to refrain from math during said yoga business
Gold still looked— and felt— utterly perplexed. Why in the world would she go to all of that trouble? “What are you planning on weaving? Whatever it is, I can just buy you one.”
Belle chuckled. “The point is making something of your own - something creative, perhaps without knowing what it’s gonna look like by the time you’re finished. Don’t worry mister Gold, if I need you to buy something for me, I’ll let you know, but this… this is something I wanna do for myself. Just because I can.”
His hands faltered on the back of his own chair and he looked at her in shock. Marriage. She actually spoke of such a thing as marriage and he swallowed hard. “Why..” He rasped. “Why would you want to marry me?”
He still struggled with the fact that she wanted him in her life, though he was gradually adjusting, but the thought that she wanted to parade him around as her husband had never struck him. Did she not realise the consequences of such an action? When people realised she wed the Dark One? Allowed him power in her Kingdom by making him her joint Monarch.
"Because…" Belle gulped a little nervously, seeing the disbelief on his face and wondering if he was opposed to the idea. "Because I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side. It’s as simple as that."
Belle, when we met, I wasn’t just unloved and unloving. I was an enemy of love. Love had only brought me pain.
The Dark One is one of the most notorious pirates in all the oceans, and when king Maurice takes his daughter for a pleasure cruise for her 21st birthday, he does not expect to run into the monster.
