I don't own any of the characters; they're all property of Disney. Hercules
is totally my favorite Disney movie, I hope you enjoy my fic!
I sat on the fountain as I waved goodbye to Hercules, still
mesmerized by his kiss. My heart was fluttering and the blood was still
rushing to my head. I admired the small white flower that Hercules had
given me. After several seconds I let out an aggravated sigh and shook my
"What's the matter with me? You'd think a girl would learn" I said
to myself as I got up. I couldn't get him off my mind, but I tried to deny
what my heart was telling me. I had been hurt so many times in the past
that I was afraid to let my heart rule my head, but I was unable to deny it
any longer and sank back down onto the base of another statue and slipped
into a daydream of me and my wonder boy.
My thoughts were disturbed when I heard a strange sound coming from
behind me and I sat up and saw that Hades, my master, was standing before
me and I instantly became filled with rage.
"So what's the buzz eh Meg? What is the weak link, in wonder boy's
chain?" He said, stressing the words weak link.
"Get yourself another girl I'm through" I snapped back and started
walking in the other direction. I couldn't hear what he was saying but he
suddenly appeared in front of me and grabbed my face.
"Aren't we forgetting one teensy-weensie but ever-so-crucial little
tiny detail. . . I own you!" He shouted, bursting into flame at the last
three words burning my arm slightly as I used it to shield my face. "You
belong to me- I am your master. You sold your soul to me so you don't have
any choice in this! If I say sing, you say 'hey name that tune!' if I say I
want wonder boy's head on a platter, you say. . ."
"Medium or well done" I said, hoping to get him off my back,
narrowing my eyes as he took my hand. I tore it away quickly, rolling my
eyes as he continued.
"I am the 'one-ness'" He snapped, stepping towards me. "You hear
that? That's the sound of your freedom, fluttering out the window.
"I don't care! I'm not gonna help you hurt him."
"Why are so choked up over some guy."
"Th-this one is different! He's honest, and sweet" I said walking
"He would never do anything to hurt me!" I said, recalling
Hercules' promise to me before we kissed. Deep down I wished that Phil had
never come to interrupts.
"He's a guy!"
"Besides oh 'one-ness'" I starting mockingly. "You cant beat him!
He has no weaknesses! He is gonna-" I said spinning around but quickly shut
up upon seeing the expression on Hades' face.
"I think, he does Meg." He started, taking the flower from me. "I
truly think, he does." He finished with a grin as my flower burst into
"What do you mean." I said backing up, trying to hide my rising
anxiety. He placed his arm around me and I tried to force myself from his
"Why my little Nut-Meg, I would expect that you would know by now."
He said grinning
"You can't!" I shouted as I became frantic. He merely smiled before
disappearing. I looked around my as my heart raced wildly and I swallowed
hard and broke out into a sprint heading towards Hercules' stadium. I
hadn't gotten very far when I found myself surrounded in a gray smoke and
looked up to find myself standing before Hercules and Hades. I knew what
was going on and tried to warn him, but before I could say much I was bound
and gagged by smoking chains. I disappeared and for several seconds I was
on the cold ground in the underworld and I reappeared on the seats of the
stadium. I shook my head as my eyes grew wide with fear hoping that he
would not agree to the bargain.
"P-people are gonna get hurt aren't they?" Hercules said, glancing
over at me as I recognized fear in his eyes.
"Nah! Well you know, it could, 'cause it is war, but what do you
owe these people huh?" Hades said as he came to my side and grabbed my face
forcing me to look at Hercules. "Isn't Meg your little smushy-face, isn't
she more important than they are?"
"Stop it!" Hercules shouted as if he was sensing my pain.
"Isn't she!" He screamed pulling me. Hercules looked as if he was
"You have to swear she'll be safe from any harm." Herc said, which
took my by surprise. I wished that I could just break my bonds and run into
his arms but I was helpless to watch as Hercules looked at me once more as
I shook my head frantically letting out a muffled cry. He shook hands with
Hades and I felt like I had been punched as I watched him fall to the
ground. Hades lifted a heavy barbell and hurled it at Herc, pinning him to
the ground, filling me with rage.
"Oh you'll love this one more thing" I managed to hear him say.
"Meg, babe. A deal's a deal. You're off the hook" My binds were broken and
I let out a gasp for air and began coughing as Hades grabbed me and told
Hercules about my enslavement to him. I looked down at the ground, consumed
with guilt. I tore myself from Hades' grip and ran to Herc, hoping that he
would just wrap his arms around me, and hold me close; but I knew that he
wouldn't. "No! It's not like that! I- I couldn't, I- I. . . I'm so sorry" I
said, failing to say the words I wanted to tell him. He grabbed my wrists
and pushed me away and collapsed to the ground. I could no longer hold back
the tears as Pain and Panic taunted him, and it pained me to watch. I fell
to my knees and buried my face into my hands, overwhelmed my guilt and
sorrow. I had finally fallen in love and my heart was broken once again,
but the feeling of betraying this man that I loved caused me more pain than
I had ever felt before.
I looked up and noticed that he walk walking away. I wiped the
tears away from my face and started to follow him. I noticed that he was
staring at a Cyclops I watched in horror as it tore the city apart calling
out Hercules' name and I knew that it was my fault that Hercules was left
without his strength to fight the Cyclops. I saw Hercules start heading to
fight the Cyclops and I ran in front of him to stop him.
"What are you doing? Without your strength you could be killed!" I
said. The anger in his eyes simply tore me apart as he pushed me out of the
way. I heard a strange sound coming from a room behind me and I ran up to
find Pegasus tied up. I quickly realized that I could use him to find Phil,
which would be my only chance to save Hercules.
"Easy there horse-feathers. Whoa, stop twitching" I said as I
pulled the ropes off him. "Listen, Hercules is in trouble. We've gotta find
Phil he's the only one who can talk some sense into him!" I shouted as I
leapt onto his back and held on tight screaming all the while we headed out
to look for Phil. I saw him down by the dock and shouted to Pegasus to go
"Phil! Phil, Hercules needs your help!" I shouted.
"What does he need me fore when he's got friends like you!" He
"He won't listen to me!" I said beginning to get desperate.
"Good he's finally learned something" He began to turn away so
Pegasus flew in front of him blocking his path.
"Look! I know what I did was wrong but this isn't about me its
about him! If you don't help him now Phil he'll die!" I said.
"What?" he asked.
"Look he trades his strength in to free me from Hades, but Hades
made it look like I was in on it. I love him no matter what you or Pegasus
might think, and I will not just sit by and watch him go get himself
killed!" I shouted as a grabbed him and we flew overhead until we saw where
Hercules lay, leaning against a broken pillar. Both of us leapt of Pegasus
but I was weary to approach Hercules.
"Come kid, come on, fight back. Come on, you take take this bum,
look at him!"
"You were right all along Phil, dreams are for rookies." Herc said
bitterly as he looked up at me. I looked down at the ground in shame as
Phil continued to encourage Herc. I was startled when the giant Cyclops
reached down and grabbed Herc. I stepped back and watched in horror as he
brought Hercules high above the ground. He grabbed a burning stick and
jammed it into the great monster's eye and fell safely onto a wagon. I
smiled as I watched him tie up his feet, and watched the great beast fall
to his death. I looked up and noticed that a great stone pillar had come
loose and was looming over Herc. My heart leapt, and without thinking I
broke into a run and pushed him out of the way, I had nothing else to live
for. My love for him was too strong, I could never have let him die.
The pillar came down on my and I forced back the cry that rose into
my throat. I was surprised when I heard Hercules cry out for me. I became
overwhelmed with emotion, I realized that he still loved me, after all I
had done he forgave me. The weight was lifted off my back and I used what
little strength I had to turn myself over. I felt him lift my head up and I
saw the love and sorrow in his eyes.
"Meg, wh-wh-why did you, m- m- you didn't have to" Hercules
stammered. I cringed slightly from the pain, and looked up at him and
"People always do crazy things" I replied. "When they're in love."
"Oh, Meg" he said his eyes welling up. "Meg, I- I- I-"
"Are you always this articulate?" I said with a smile. He let out a
chuckle but his brilliant smile quickly faded. "You. . . you haven't got
much time, you can still stop Hades." I said, my voice barely above a
"I'll watch over her kid." Phil said as he pushed a rock up
underneath my head and Herc softly laid me down against it.
"Your gonna be alright. I promise." He said before mounting onto
Pegasus. I watched Hercules disappear into the distance.
"Good luck." I whispered.
"That was a very brave thing you did." Phil said.
" I had to." I whispered. "I love him"
"He's very lucky to have someone who loves him so much." He said as
he held my hand. I couldn't hear what else he had said as my vision grew
blurry. All the pain left my body and I could no longer feel Phil holding
my hand. I closed my eyes and I suddenly felt as if I was in a deep
The next thing I could remember was taking a sharp breath and I
looked up into Hercules' bright blue eyes as his face lit up. I smiled back
at him, I knew how he had brought me back to life at the risk of losing his
"Wonderboy, what? Why did you?" I asked. He held out his hand and
helped me to my feet.
"People always do crazy things, when they're in love." He said with
a bright smile. My face lit up and I felt my heart bounding with joy. He
took me in his arms and we leaned towards each other for a kiss but a bolt
of lighting struck at our feet and a cloud appeared beneath us to Mt.
Olympus. Hercules held my hands in his, holding me close as we rose higher
He helped me down, and his face lit upon seeing his parents for the
first time in eighteen years. He looked at me for reassurance and I smiled
at him and he walked away. As he turned and walked up the stairs my smile
faded. I walked to the edge of the stairs and watched as the gates to
"Congratulations Wonderboy, you'll make one heck of a God!" I said
as the tears built up on my eyelashes and I swallowed hard to hold back the
sobs that yearned to come out. I was taken by surprise when I felt his
fingers wrap around my own as he spoke.
"A life without Meg, even an immortal life, would be. . . empty. I.
. . I wish to stay on earth with her" he said. I smiled with an
overwhelming joy bursting inside of me. I leaned against his chest
listening to his heartbeat as he wrapped his arms tightly around me. "I
finally know where I belong." he continued. I looked up at him, and stared
deep into his deep blue eyes. I closed my eyes softly as I felt his lips
touching mine. I pulled him closer, and he tightened his embrace. That
moment was the happiest moment of my life. I wanted to forever stay in his
warm protective embrace. Our kiss was interrupted when Pegasus licked
Herc's face. I banged heads with him and hugged him as he put his wing over
my shoulders. I hopped onto his back as Herc jumped on behind me and we
grabbed Phil as we headed back down to earth.
Herc leapt of Peg and ran up to his adoptive parents when I noticed
the sky. I ran up to him and pointed out the sight that lay before us, a
brilliant new constellation created to praise him. We smiled and I ran up
to Phil hugging him. I stood back up on my feet and Herc came up beside me
and slid his arm over my shoulders.
"What do you say we go back to the villa, and curl up by the
fireplace?" He asked me.
"I'd love to." I replied. He kissed my cheek softly and helped me
onto Pegasus. He held me close to him, and for the first time in my life I
knew where I belonged.
More to come people!
