Summary: An anonymous prompt from my Chance Encounter
‘verse: “It’s Belle’s first time of the museum’s annual event. People tell her
that their director, Mr. Gold, is a scary, mysterious man but is definitely
cool and genuine when he dresses up as Rumplestiltskin for this event.”
Chance Encounter was one of the fics I wrote for the
Rumbelle Showdown earlier this year, and it can be read here.
Family Fun Day
Belle had always had to hide a smile when her colleagues at
the maritime museum would warn her about the terrifying director, Mr Gold. They
told her all the horror stories of the interns that he’d made cry with a single
scathing comment, of the many secretaries he’d given nervous breakdowns, of the
way he could manipulate the museum board into satisfying his every demand. Truth
be told, Belle just found the tales amusing, because her first and lasting
impression of Rum Gold would always be a slightly scruffy stranger in a parka
in a cave, telling her all about the legend of the great smuggler
Rumpelstiltskin’s missing hoard of treasure, and although, in her position as
chief archivist at the museum, she frequently crossed paths with the director,
their interactions had been never been anything but civil.
And perhaps, Belle admitted to herself, a little bit
flirtatious. They did, after all, share something of an inside joke. Well, it
wasn’t really a joke per se, just a little thing that no-one else knew about.
That morning in the hidden cave was their private little secret, and Belle was
content to keep it that way.
