On the eve of Wendy’s 16th birthday George and Mary Darling were visited by an old friend they hoped to never see again. This old friend reminds them of their deal before disappearing from their sight.
On the night of Wendy’s birthday Mary enters Wendy’s bedroom and tells her a story that happened when she was just a girl.
Mary had gone by Molly at that time and she had gone to Neverland with George. While there they had many adventures with the leader and ruler of the island Peter Pan. But something terrifying happened to Molly when she had touched the one plant on the island that was deadly, Dreamshade. Molly was dying and George was beside himself, Peter could see they had something that he could never hope to have, love. In turn he agreed to save Molly’s life but all magic comes at a cost. Peter asked for their future first born child, in hopes it would be a boy of course, in return his shadow would come to their home and deliver the magic waters of Neverland that would keep Molly alive. But should they refuse him she would die.
Wendy was appalled by the story and begged her mother not to do this, that there had to be another way. With tears in her eyes Mary shut the door locking Wendy in, repeating constantly how sorry she was.
Wendy eventually gave up trying to get out and waited in her bed. When the window opened the shadow entered holding a satchel which she assumed held the water. Following the shadow was a figure, a boy who seemed around her age. He was beautiful, his sharp eyes and lean body, she found herself blushing at the sight of him. He strolled in to her bedroom sauntering towards her, she stood her ground and refused to go with him when he asked her to. He told her how she had no choice, she now belonged to him as per the deal and if Wendy didn’t want to be motherless she better cooperate. And as all people with a pure hearts do, she gave herself up to save her family. She went to Neverland with him and never saw her family again.
