The Princess and the Pirate

By Vampiregirl1312

Drama / Romance


Emma had never experienced any feeling like this before, her mother had just came up into her chambers and told her the most terrible news that had ever reached her ears. She was getting a stranger! To make it even worse this stranger was the dark ones son Baelfire. All because of her parents idiotic past and deal they made with Rumplestiltskin when Snow was pregnant. Now it was time to pay up and the price was Emma's hand.

"Emma, I know you're upset but I'm sure he's not that bad." Her mother had said after Emma remained silent.

"Not that bad? Not that BAD? HE'S THE DARK ONES SON! HOW CAN HE NOT BE THAT BAD?" She couldn't help it she just exploded and then the flood-gates opened, she fell to her knees and just cried.

She then felt her mother's arms wrap around her "Emma if there was any other way, you know your father wouldn't have agreed to this"

"But mum, I don't even though him. I wanted to marry someone I loved, not someone I was forced to" The tears were still falling endlessly.

"I know sweetheart, I know..."

With that her mother got up and left Emma to her thoughts, there was going to be a ball to celebrate the engagement tonight and that is where she would meet her fiancé. Meet the man she was meant to marry. Meet the person she would spend the rest of her miserable life with.

On that thought she walked over to her walk in wardrobe and looked through her ball gowns. She was usually excited for these events: the dancing, the music, the ball gowns, the romance and just the relaxation of it all but she realised that with this news the fun was taken out of the event but she would just have to suck it up. It's what princesses do.
