Once Upon a Time; Rumbelle. One-shot.
Summary: After casting Belle out of his castle, Rumplestiltskin incredibly misses her. To stop thinking of her at least for a moment, he answers Charming’s call and finds himself at the palace, where Charming and Snow are throwing a Ball. What he doesn’t know is that it was actually Belle’s initiative to call upon him. Confused, but hopeful, he agrees to dance with her. But will the night end just with the dance and they’ll go they own separate ways, or will Belle come back home with him?
Notes: The background story follows the events of the show, up to the point when Rumple cast Belle out of the castle. Since that moment it’s an AU, and the story here picks up several weeks after that. There’s no Regina, no kidnapping, no telling Rumple that she died. Also, I pretty much messed up Charming and Snow’s timeline, but whatever ^^.
