Okay...hopefully you like this. Takes place after The Snuggly Duckling, and the guards are chasing them. I don't own Tangled...though I wish I did! Warning: Quite a bit of fluff!
"Rider!" They were so close, and I was freaking out! Where were we going to go? We definitely couldn't go down that rickety ladder.
Suddenly, Goldie swung across to the cliff in front of us. Of course, now I have to fend off these guards to spare time. Once I had knocked out all the guards something totally unexpected happened, the horse came after me with a sword. That is definitely not something you see everyday and I was caught off guard. I had lost the frying pan, and thats when Blondie tossed her hair to me.
I managed to make it across to this dilapidated water thing (AN: I don't know what its called. If you know, tell me and I'll go back and change it). I tried to get Goldie to jump back across to get away, but that stupid horse was right behind her. Before she could even try to escape Maximus had a mouthful of her dress to hold her back. I immediately started thinking of how I could get her out of there. Maybe I should just make my escape now, I had my chance. No! I had to save her, or at least try. I had to admit, she was growing on me. She was naive, yes, but I wanted to be the one to teach her everything she didn't know. I couldn't exactly place how I felt about her, but something was compelling me to want to be with her.
What was I saying? This was my chance to get out of here, and I was spending it thinking about a girl I barely knew! What is wrong with me? I never let a girl get to me like this. Then again, she wasn't just any girl. I've never met anyone like her. I just needed to get my head on straight! I didn't have that much time. Either go in there and save her, or run and never look back.
"Flynn!" Her call for help snapped me out of it. I knew it might not work, but I at least needed to try to help her.
As fast as I could, I ran and jumped over to where she was stuck. The guards were starting to cross over the makeshift bridge when I heard it. It sounded like something had cracked a little, and I would have disregarded it if water hadn't started gushing out of the dam.
"Blondie!" I reached her just as the dam broke. At the last second I grabbed her around the waist and held her tightly. I didn't want her to wash up by herself where she would get lost.
The water picked us up and carried us away from the snuggly duckling to some river by the forest. Of course, Blondie had passed out, so I had to drag her onto the shore. I started to get really worried, it had been a couple minutes since we had been on land, but she wasn't coming too. I checked to make sure she was still breathing, and sure enough she was. Why is she still like this? I figured I'd give her a little while, so I found a covered area nearby and carried her over. I gently layed her against a tree, and started a fire. (AN: It's the same place as in the movie...)
Just when I really started to worry, I saw her eyes flicker open, "Hey, Blondie. You okay?"
"Ya. What happened?"
"What was the last thing you remember? I'll start from there."
"You yelled over to me, and then I heard water flowing, and that's the last thing I remember before everthing went black."
"Okay. You know how the horse knocked over the plank to get you you?" She nodded her head and I continued. "Well, the dam broke, and it washed us away. I know where we are, but it will take about half an hour to get to the kingdom tomorrow."
"Hey, Flynn? How long was I unconcious?"
"Long enough for me to worry about you," Why did I say that? She giggled. It's so cute when she giggles, especially when she scrunches up her nose. Wait, what am I saying? I don't like her. I need to stop! What is up with me lately?
"How long is that exactly?"
"Not too long, maybe about five minutes."
"Well, I'm ah...I'm going to go get some firewood."
"Okay," but before I could even get up she gasped.
"Your arm, it's bleeding!" Funny, I didn't notice that before.
"I'm sure it'll stop eventually."
"No, Flynn. Just stay here, I'll fix it. It's all my fault anyways."
"It's not your fault, I'm just careless."
"No, it is my fault. If I wouldn't have made you take me to see the latterns, you never would have gottent this," her beautiful, green eyes were starting to tear up so I decided to give in.
"Alright, but I don't see how you're going to fix this. We don't even have medical supplies."
"Well...you see, that's the thing. I don't exactly...um...need anything."
"What?" She must've known I was confused because she started to expand.
"Well...my hair...it umm, it can...heal injuries."
"What!" Now I was getting scared.
"Just don't freak out okay?" She started to wrap her hair around my arm.
"Umm...Goldie? What are you doing?"
She looked up at me, "I told you, don't freak out," and that's when she started to sing.
Flower gleam and glow, let your power shine. Her hair started to glow, and it was freaking me out.
Make the clock reverse, bring back what once was mine.
Heal what has been hurt, change the fates design.
Save what has been lost. Now the hair around my arm was glowing, and I was really getting scared.
Bring back what once was mine, what once was mine.
She looked up at me, and I unwrapped my arm. It had healed up completely. How?
"Uh...Blondie? What just happened?"
"I actually don't know. Mother can't explain it, she just tells me I was born with a gift. She said that when I was a baby people tried to cut it. They wanted to take it for themselves, but once it's cut it turns brown and loses its power. Ever since I can remember I've been in that tower. Mother never let me leave, and I didn't argue because she said it was dangerous."
"Are you still going to go back?"
"I don't know. I'm sure mother will get worried when she gets back and I'm not there. But I've been having so much fun!"
"Don't go back then. You could always..." what? She could always what? Stay with you and start a family? She would never go for scum like me! "Ahh..nevermind. It's you decision in the end." There was an awkward pause. Why was I saying these kind of things? I need to just clear my head, and stop thinking about her.
"So, Flynn. Do you have any secrets?"
"No...why would you ask that?"
"Come on, you've got to have a few secrets. I won't tell anyone. I mean, really. Who do I have to tell?" She had a point, after this she would go back to her mother.
I took a deep breath. Did I really want to do this? "My real name is Eugene Fitzherbert." Apparently I did. I looked over at her, expecing her to burst out in laughter. Instead, she was just smiling.
"I like Eugene Fitzherbert much better than Flynn Rider."
"So then why do you go by Flynn?"
"I was always teased as a kid for my name. As soon as I got out of the orphanage I changed my name to the name of my favorite hero: Flynnagan Rider. Of course, at the time I thought it was the perfect name for a thief."
"You were an orphan?" I nodded. "Oh my gosh! Eugene, I'm so sorry," Her eyes started to fill up with tears.
"It's alright. I never really knew my parents. I miss them, and I wish they were still around, but I can't really do anything now."
She sniffled and wiped her eyes, "That's so sad."
"It's alright, Bondie. I'm over it." After another awkward silence, I decided to pipe up, "It's getting pretty late. Maybe we should get some shut eye. Tomorrow's a big day, right?"
"Of course! Goodnight, Eugene."
After barely two seconds Rapunzel whispered, "Hey Eugene?"
"Thanks, for everything. This is the best thing that's ever happened to me."
So? How was it? Please review! Reviews are always nice! If you don't review Eugene will hit you over the head with his frying pan...
