Never imagined

Disclaimer: I don't own Once Upon a Time.

When Rumpelstiltskin made the deal for Belle (who lived up to her name in more ways then just her looks) he never imagined that she would make his dark heart feel something he hadn't felt in a long time. So when he saw her walking towards his castle his heart leapt in his chest and he hurried down the stairs of the tower to his spinning wheel and pretended that he hadn't been watching for her hoping that she would come back.
