Gold paced the hallway nervously.
He walked in the bathroom and straightened his tie.
He ran a comb through his hair.
He looked in the mirror and straightened his tie again.
Could time pass any slower?
He saw people gathering in his backyard, they were standing around white tables and chairs that had vases with roses peaking out in the table's center.
Gold smiled when he saw the flowers.
Roses were Scarlett's favorite.
He took a deep breath. He couldn't believe that Scarlett-beautiful, sweet, Scarlett-was going to be his wife.
He heard a shriek and ran to the bedroom where Ruby was helping Scarlett get "beautified" as she put it.
He quickly made his way to the room and knocked on the door.
"I'm fine Vincent! Just a minor emergency." Scarlett shouted.
"Can I come in?" he asked.
"NO!" she exclaimed.
"It's bad luck for the groom to see the bride in her wedding dress before the wedding!"
Gold laughed at Scarlett's silly notions.
"Well, what's the 'minor issue'?"
He asked, leaning against the door and pressing his ear against it.
"I'm supposed to have something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue, and I don't have something blue." Scarlett said, and then let out a small sob.
"I'll be right back." Gold said.
He came back a minute later and knocked softly on the door.
"What?" Ruby asked.
"Can you open the door a crack so I can hand you something?"
She opened the door and he handed her a box.
Inside were a pair of sapphire earrings.
He had been saving them for their honeymoon, but now it was imperative.
At least to a woman.
Ruby looked inside the box and squealed.
She snapped the box shut and closed the door.
He waited a moment to hear Scarlett's reaction.
"Oh Vincent! I love them, thank you!"
"No problem Dearie." he said, and went to the bathroom to straighten his tie.
The wedding was small and very intimate.
The guests were Mary Margaret, David, Ruby, Granny, Kathryn, Moe French, Ashley, Dr. Hopper, Marco, August, Sister Astrid, Jefferson, Sidney, Leroy,Emma, Henry and even Regina (Although she was only there to supervise Emma and Henry)
Scarlett looked absolutely gorgeous in a lovely two-piece mermaid gown made of satin-polyester and taffeta material that had delicate, feminine details throughout. From the hand-beaded brooch detail on the sweetheart bodice to the cascading rose at the hip, it was a dress fitted for a princess.
Gold looked absolutely dashing in a black tuxedo with a cream colored shirt underneath.
A crimson colored tie was a nice pop of color in his dark suit.
Gold stood under the arbor facing Scarlett.
He took a deep breath.
"This is actually happening." he muttered to himself.
He felt as of he were in a dream as Scarlett walked towards him.
Gold pulled pulled out a piece of paper and read the vows he wrote himself.
"Scarlett, I promise to always love and protect you, no matter what happens, no matter what tries to tear us apart. I promise I will never give up on you in hard times. I promise that I will give you every ounce of love that you deserve. And I promise to never, ever mistreat you no matter what. I love you Scarlett."
He finished his vows, folded up the paper and tucked it into his shirt.
Ruby slipped a piece of paper to Scarlett because she had nowhere to hide the paper in her dress.
She unfolded the paper and with tears in her eyes and a smile playing at her lips, she opened the paper and began to read.
"Vincent, I vow that I will love you and only you, forever. I vow to kiss you and hug you every moment you are within my reach," she giggled and then continued.
"I vow to be an understanding, caring, and loving wife no matter how irritating you are. I promise to care for you when you sick, and to love you when you are having tough times. I promise I will try my hardest not to show people what a softie you really are.
Vincent, I vow to to love you for the rest of my life."
Gold was in a daze when he heard the words "You may kiss the bride."
He pulled Scarlett to him and kissed her as if it was the last time he would ever be able to kiss her.
A chorus of "Awwww!" came from the group of people when he finally pulled away.
Scarlett was a little too enthusiastic as she shoved Granny's famous red velvet cake into Vincent's mouth.
"Oh that's how you like to play..." he said and took a large piece with extra frosting and push it into her face.
She laughed and kissed him, causing them to get bits of each other's cake smushed on their faces.
Scarlett leaned over towards him and whispered in his ear,
"I can't believe I'm Mrs. Gold!"
"I cant believe it either." he said.
Seven months after their marriage Belle found out she was five months pregnant.
Her and Vincent were extremely excited and began preparing the babies room.
"How about we start painting?" Vincent asked.
"But we don't know if it's a girl or boy yet." Belle reminded him as she began placing diapers and wipes in a top dresser drawer.
"We could paint animals on the walls." Vincent suggested.
"No, animals is so cliche, everyone does animals."
"What about a neutral color like.. Yellow or green?"
"Cliche..." Belle sighed.
"Well we could paint it like a castle, if it's a boy he'll feel like a king, or a knight. And if it's a girl she'll feel like a princess."
Belle ran to Gold and threw her arms around his neck enthusiastically.
"I love that idea!" she exclaimed.
So a castle it was.
Back in fairytale land...
Belle sat in a rocking chair one hand on her swollen belly, the other holding Rumplestiltskin's hand.
"Can you believe that any day now we are going to be parents!" she squealed.
Rumpelstiltskin smiled at her.
"I can't believe it." he said twisting his wedding band on his finger.
He leaned over to kiss her then he settled back into his chair.
The evil queen sat sobbing in her castle.
The potion didn't work.
She cried until her heart ached.
"Oh Daniel!" she sobbed and threw herself on the stone floor.
She cried for hours until her tears ran out, and her despair turned to anger.
"I'll get you Rumplestiltskin!" she screeched and threw the empty vial to the ground.
She stalked to her mirror and demanded to see Rumplestiltskin's castle.
Normally she couldn't see anything, because clever old Rumple kept all of his mirrors covered.
But today foolish Belle had uncovered a mirror and the Queen could see a very pregnant Belle sitting and reading in a chair.
"I'll make you regret this, dear old Rumple." the queen muttered and began forming an evil plan.
One that she wouldn't put into action for a good many years.
But that's another story.
Two days later beautiful twin
boys with messy brown waves and dark blue eyes were born to Rumple and Belle.
They named them Bellum and Relle, which were both different variations of Rumple and Belle mixed together.
Before Belle knew it the boys were two years old and running rampant throughout Rumple's castle.
One day the boys were playing in the kitchen and climbed up into the cupboards.
"Get down from there right now boys!" Belle scolded when she walked into the kitchen and saw them.
As they were getting down Bellum angrily grabbed a cup and threw it on the ground.
"Bellum! That was an awful thing for you to do. Your father is going to be so upset!" Belle exclaimed lowering her head into her hands.
"Why Mummy?" asked Bellum.
"It's just a cup!"
